THE ILUC VOTE

NO SUBSIDIES…NO TURBINES….NO PROBLEMS!!!

Roger Helmer MEP

bio-fuels

Bio-fuels were once regarded as a major contributor in “fighting climate change” and cutting emissions.  Then several problems were recognised.

First, there is a considerable energy input in growing bio-fuel crops.  Diesel for tractors, fertilisers and pesticides.  This must be off-set against the supposed emissions savings.

Second, burning food crops reduces the tonnage of food available to feed people, at a time when hunger remains a global problem.  It also raises food prices.  There have been riots over food prices in a number of countries.  The extent to which bio-fuels raise prices is disputed, but clearly they must have a significant effect.

Thirdly there is the question of “Indirect Land Use Change” or ILUC.  If people use agricultural land for bio-fuels, this will put further pressure on other land.  It may cause the clearing of rain-forest or other forests, or the use of peat-lands.  The extent to which this occurs…

Output from green power drops in Canada

Boo Hoo

Federal statistics show that the contribution from renewable energy sources continues to decline, compared with conventional carbon-based fuel sources.

Submitted on 09/09/13, 07:16 AM

Electricity generation from wind turbines and solar panels across Canada dropped more than 14% in the first five months of this year, according to Statistics Canada.

And I don’t think so!

Feed-in tariffs and legislated renewable portfolio standards are key, but there must be stronger efforts to curtail the growth of conventional energy sources, or the share from renewables will continue to drop.”

This is the End – my only friend, the End

A dream come true for the Aussies!!! Get rid of the bird choppers, and put back hydro. There…problem solved!

STOP THESE THINGS

*****

As Mr Mojo Risin just said: “This is the End”.

In Australia – this is the end of the greatest economic and environmental fraud ever committed on a Nation.

After a decade of lording it over ordinary Australians – you know, the ones who can no longer pay their crippling power bills; the ones who suffer night after merciless night from turbine generated low frequency noise and infrasound; and the 40 or so families who have abandoned homes which are no longer habitable for the same reason – the eco-fascist and greentard journos and bloggers have just been given an “ALMIGHTY BITCH SLAP”.

The Coalition’s brilliant victory on Saturday must have caught them napping.  It’s as if they couldn’t or just wouldn’t see it coming.

The “grown-ups” are well and truly back in charge and have made no secret that the great “green” scam is over.

The Senate make…

Climate Science Exploited for Political Agenda by Richard Lindzen

TUCSON, Ariz., Aug. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/
Climatism or global warming alarmism is the most prominent recent example of science being coopted to serve a political agenda, writes Richard Lindzen of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the in the fall 2013 issue of the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons.

Here is another excerpt from this article.
Lindzen writes: “Global climate alarmism has been costly to society, and it has the potential to be vastly more costly. It has also been damaging to science, as scientists adjust both data and even theory to accommodate politically correct positions. How can one escape from the Iron Triangle when it produces flawed science that is immensely influential and is forcing catastrophic public policy?”

And another.
Escape from climate alarmism will be more difficult than from Lysenkoism, in Lindzen’s view, because Global Warming has become a religion. It has a global constituency and has coopted almost all institutional science. Nevertheless, he believes “the cracks in the scientific claims for catastrophic warming are…becoming much harder for the supporters to defend.”

Wind turbine projects alarm McNaughton

We never needed the useless machines, in the first place!

Wind Resistance of Melancthon

There are more wind turbines coming to the Lambton-Kent-Middlesex riding, and that alarms Progressive Conservative MPP Monte McNaughton.

Already home to about 100 wind turbines, McNaughton said there are up to 1,000 wind turbines in the project stage and are scheduled to be constructed in the near future in the mostly-rural riding.

“We know that more contacts are being approved,” McNaughton said.

As the provincial legislature heads back to work this week, McNaughton said he is preparing to fight against the Green Energy Act.

He said he would like to see municipalities have more veto power about having wind turbines. A number of municipalities, including Dawn-Euphemia, have passed resolutions saying they are unwilling hosts of future wind turbines.

“I am going to hammer the government and encourage them to support that,” McNaughton said, noting that local decisions should be made by local governments.

With a big expansion of wind turbines…

Ontario’s Power Trip: Dear Minister, here’s my plan to not produce electricity

I could be a Billionaire, if only I could find someone to pay me not to do things….

Wind Resistance of Melancthon

Parker Gallant makes a bold offer to Ontario Energy Minister Bob Chiarelli following news that the provinces electricity operator will pay industrial wind firms not to produce electricity.

September 9, 2013
The Honourable Bob Chiarelli, Minister of Energy,

Dear Minister Chiarelli:
It has come to my attention that the Independent Electricity System Operator will start paying industrial wind developers for not producing any electricity, starting on September 11, 2013. I understand that they could possibly receive as much as $200,000 per megawatt of installed power for not producing that electricity.
This leads me to believe that I could also be persuaded to not produce any electricity in order to obtain the benefits of that program. I would start small and perhaps not produce electricity for say 2 megawatts, which would mean a payment of $400,000 per year. In a few years I could expand and not produce electricity for, say…

OCOTILLO RESIDENTS’ WOES CONTINUE AS NEW DUST STORM, FLOODING, WHITE SLUDGE FLOW STRIKES COMMUNITY

Turbines are a source of asthma problems for these people….

Quixotes Last Stand

In a follow up to our article about Octillo, Californiaabout the devastation caused by Pattern Energy’s industrial wind development, the assault on the town’s residents continue.

Miriam Raftery — East County Magazine — September 8, 2013

A new dust storm, flooding and more white foam flowed through Ocotillo today, heightening residents’ concerns about impacts of Pattern Energy’s Ocotillo Express Wind Energy Facility on this desert community.  At 4:40 p.m., a storm hit, sending massive amounts of dust into the air, this time coming directly from project access dirt roads created by Pattern Energy, according to Jim Pelley, who shot this video. Soon after, a storm brought flash flooding, which residents claim is worsened by drainage changes made by the wind developer.  The flood brought a repeat of an unknown white sludgy substance washing across the desert floor and into the town.

“The white foam is back moving across…

Lack of Demand Closes Turbine Parts Manufacturer: Wausakee Composites, Cuba City’s largest private employer, closing : Wsj

July 26, 2013 5:15 am  •  

The largest private employer in Cuba City is closing its doors.

Wausaukee Composites, a parts manufacturer for the wind turbine industry, announced Thursday that it will close its more than 40,000-square-foot facility in the city’s industrial park.

The move, effective Friday, will eliminate 36 jobs from the city and comes after the company went into temporary shutdown mode on June 14 with an unknown call-back date.

“You never want to lose a plant, but the silver lining is we saw it coming and we were able to prepare for it,” said Taylor Gronau, economic development director for the city on the eastern edge of Grant County.

“I think Cuba City will fare well coming out of this. That building and site is incredibly useful. We think we can have this building sold within a year.”

In a letter to the state Department of Workforce Development, Edward Trueman, president and CEO of the company, said 33 employees will lose their jobs on Friday, while the remaining three employees have accepted positions at the company headquarters in Wausaukee, located in Marinette County.

“Wausaukee only recently learned that the primary customer served by the Cuba City facility was closing one of its facilities and would no longer be ordering component parts from Cuba City,” Trueman wrote.

He also cited federal tax law changes and decreased investment in the wind energy industry for a lack of new customers to replace the business recently lost.

The Cuba City employees, who are not represented by a union, do not have bumping rights at the company’s Wausaukee and Owosso, Mich., plants but are welcome to apply for any open positions, Trueman said.

Wausaukee Composites is a subsidiary of Sintex Industries, a multinational manufacturer and distributor of structural plastics and textiles.

Coalition energy document focuses almost entirely on fossil fuels

Only reference to Australia’s $20bn renewable industry is repeat of promise to hold another investigation into the health impacts of wind farms – September 5, 2013 – Giles Parkinson – The Guardian

On wind, the energy document – in an apparent gesture towards the anti-wind members of its constituency – says: “Some members of public have serious concerns over the potential impacts of wind farms on the health of people living in their vicinity.

“The lack of reliable and demonstrably independent evidence on the subject of wind farms both adds to those concerns and allows vested interests on either side of the debate to promulgate questionable information to support their respective cases.

“We will implement a program to establish real-time monitoring of wind farm noise emissions to be made publicly available on the internet.”

The renewables industry has previously said that real-time monitoring would impose unbearable costs on the wind industry, and would be almost useless because of the inability to separate other noise in real-time.

Ontario’s Future: Brussels fears European ‘industrial massacre’ sparked by energy costs

Stop this ridiculous scam, and let the world get back to business.

Quixotes Last Stand

Ambrose Evans-Pritchard (in Cernobbio, Italy) — The Telegraph — Sept. 8, 2013

Europe’s industry is being ravaged by exorbitant energy costs and an over-valued euro, blighting efforts to reverse years of global manufacturing decline.

“We face a systemic industrial massacre,” said Antonio Tajani, the European industry commissioner.

Mr Tajani warned that Europe’s quixotic dash for renewables was pushing electricity costs to untenable levels, leaving Europe struggling to compete as America’s shale revolution cuts US natural gas prices by 80pc.

“I am in favour of a green agenda, but we can’t be religious about this. We need a new energy policy. We have to stop pretending, because we can’t sacrifice Europe’s industry for climate goals that are not realistic, and are not being enforced worldwide,” he told The Daily Telegraphduring the Ambrosetti forum of global policy-makers at Lake Como.

“The loss of competitiveness is frightening,” said Paulo Savona, head of…
