“Michael Moore presents Planet of the Humans, a documentary that dares to say what no one else will this Earth Day — that we are losing the battle to stop climate change on planet earth because we are following leaders who have taken us down the wrong road — selling out the green movement to wealthy interests and corporate America. This film is the wake-up call to the reality we are afraid to face: that in the midst of a human-caused extinction event, the environmental movement’s answer is to push for techno-fixes and band-aids. It’s too little, too late.
Removed from the debate is the only thing that MIGHT save us: getting a grip on our out-of-control human presence and consumption. Why is this not THE issue? Because that would be bad for profits, bad for business. Have we environmentalists fallen for illusions, “green” illusions, that are anything but green, because we’re scared that this is the end—and we’ve pinned all our hopes on biomass, wind turbines, and electric cars?
No amount of batteries are going to save us, warns director Jeff Gibbs (lifelong environmentalist and co-producer of “Fahrenheit 9/11” and “Bowling for Columbine”). This urgent, must-see movie, a full-frontal assault on our sacred cows, is guaranteed to generate anger, debate, and, hopefully, a willingness to see our survival in a new way—before it’s too late……..”
Begs the question; What happens to wind turbines if they were put into our Great Lakes?

School division apologizes after Christmas concert deemed ‘anti-oil’
‘No political agenda,’ board of trustees chair says after parents raise concerns about Thursday concert
A Saskatchewan school division has apologized after parents raised concerns a Christmas concert last week had an anti-oil agenda.
On Thursday, the Oxbow Prairie Horizons School’s annual concert featured a show titled: “Santa Goes Green.”
This didn’t sit will with some audience members, as Oxbow is a community where a good number of workers are in the mining and resource industries. In fact, the town’s logo prominently contains a pumpjack.
Mike Gunderman, whose daughter was in the show, took to Facebook to express his concerns about the play, saying the concert was a “kick in the groin” to anyone working in the struggling oil industry. The post has since been shared more than 650 times….
I’m just gonna say it, but the kids school Christmas concert last night at Oxbow was the most “un”-Christmassy thing i have seen. It was a green Christmas theme, with all the words to the Christmas carols changed to support the green agenda, and don’t use the pumps, and keep the oil in the ground, while they danced around wearing green plastic hats from the dollar store. Considering the state of our industry, it was a kick in the groin to those who are employed by it. Not the kids fault…they smiled and sang and had fun, and the audience was respectful and applauded, but jaw dropping, and hypocritical of the school to allow that, considering all the diesel school buses and all the financial support the school gets from oil industry related people & businesses.

Doug Ford ‘proud’ of decision to tear up hundreds of green energy contracts
TORONTO – Premier Doug Ford said Thursday he is “proud” of his decision to tear up hundreds of renewable energy deals, a move that his government acknowledges could cost taxpayers more than $230 million.
Ford dismissed criticism that his Progressive Conservatives are wasting public money, telling a news conference that the cancellation of 750 contracts signed by the previous Liberal government will save cash.
“I’m so proud of that,” Ford said of his decision. “I’m proud that we actually saved the taxpayers $790 million when we cancelled those terrible, terrible, terrible wind turbines that really for the last 15 years have destroyed our energy file.”
Later Thursday, Ford went further in defending the cancelled contracts, saying “if we had the chance to get rid of all the wind mills we would.”

CPP might be ‘buying into a lawsuit’ through Pattern Energy acquisition, says lawyer
The Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPPIB) might be “buying into a lawsuit” by acquiring U.S.-based renewable energy company Pattern Energy, according to a lawyer representing Chatham-Kent residents whose lawsuit against the Ontario government — as well as three wind turbine companies, including Pattern Energy — was dismissed earlier this year.
Pattern Energy announced in early November that it had entered into a $6.1 billion agreement with the CPPIB that would see the federal pension plan’s investment arm acquire the renewable energy company.
