WLGWAG takes a Different Direction with HAF Wind Energy Project

Thank you for fighting for the people Anne and Ed! Press Release Below from WLWAG:

On the advice of our Lawyer Eric Gillespie, Anne Fairfield and Edward Engel (on behalf of the West Lincoln Glanbrook Wind Action Group), in an agreement with the Lawyers for Vineland Power Inc , have asked for a Consent Dismissal of their Appeal for an Environmental Review Tribunal Hearing and their STAY Motion. Our Canadian Constitution is called our Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Our constitutional question asks if the manner in which Industrial Wind Turbines are being approved is unconstitutional insofar as they allow for the violation of our rights under Section 7 of the Charter, among other things. The Minutes of Settlement indicate that when the matter of the Constitutional Question is decided before at least two other Tribunal Hearings, which are currently in process, the answer will be brought back before the Tribunal hearing the HAF Wind Energy project and applied to our Constitutional Question as well. In the meantime, residents of West Lincoln should watch for announcements of the upcoming information event, Year in Review, being planned for September 25th in the Wellandport Community Centre. This will be your opportunity for “one-stop shopping” for all the information you wish you knew about Wind Turbines in West Lincoln and Haldimand County, and why WLGWAG has been opposing this potential Industrial Invasion for over three years. Mark this “Go-to-Event” on your calendars now and spread the news to your neighbours so they can get involved.

Health issues dominate Dufferin WP hearing

The wind weasels cannot continue to deny the health effects….

Wind Resistance of Melancthon

The Energy Review Board’s hearing into the Renewable Energy Approval (REA) for Dufferin Wind Power (DWP) is progressing into what observers say will be protracted arguments about health issues, and a war of words is continuing in Melancthon apart from the hearings.

Threats to human, animal and plant life are among the issues the ERB is mandated to rule on. Recently, a tribunal revoked an REA in Prince Edward County on the basis of possible serious and irreversible harm by Gilead Power’s Ostrander Point wind turbine project on the habitat of the endangered Blanding’s turtle.

On the DWP hearing, the tribunal was meeting in Toronto rather than Shelburne earlier this week. Part of the time was devoted to procedural issues, according to observers, and some to arguments over light flicker, one of the concerns of the CORE group.

At some point next week, health evidence will be admitted via a…

wind farms are illegal

The sooner we get rid of the wind scam, the better off we will all be.

ScottishSceptic

I received this from George Lindsay. We now have a situation where the international legal basis for wind non-science disappeared in December when the Kyoto Protocol ceased being legally binding and now the Aarhus committee have ruled the UK is acting illegally.

Stand back for wall to wall coverage by the BBC condemning the UK’s illegal pollution of the countryside with bird-mincers. (Who am I kidding?)

TEXT:

Effects of the Aarhus draft decision on planning applications.
The Aarhus Convention Compliance Committee has ruled unequivocally that the UK is non-compliant with Article 7 of the Convention.

The Real story on turbines from Ridgetown

THE TRUTH ALWAYS COMES OUT!!!

Ontario Wind Resistance

turbine-and-truthManitoulin Expositor
While vacationing on the Island a few weeks ago, I read with interest the editorial of July 31, 2013 about the building of additional industrial wind turbines on Manitoulin.

If I were to choose one word to describe the content of this editorial, it would be the adjective sophomoric, to be understood in its plain meaning of shallow, immature, and juvenile. I say this because I live in a community in which a compliant municipal council welcomed the hucksters of green energy, which led to the building of more than 150 wind turbines with more to come, in an area much smaller than Manitoulin, known as the Municipality of Chatham-Kent. The result has been that property values here have fallen, there has been an increase in reports of people suffering mental and physical difficulties and sadly the building of the turbines has caused a sense of enmity amongst…

The great wind power fraud: a tale from two continents

Smarten up everybody….JUST SAY NO!!!

STOP THESE THINGS

The Americans are watching Europe’s wind power debacle in horror – a little like a bunny in the headlights – the glare catches its gaze and it’s just not quite sure what to do next.

But – maybe, just maybe – they’ll hop to safety before they get overrun by the greatest economic and environmental fraud of all time.

Here’s one smart bunny warning his compatriots that it might be time to move.

Germany, Denmark pay 3 times current U.S. rates for energy — and our leaders want us to pay that much as well.

Although blades on the 150-foot wind turbines at the new German offshore Riffgat power plant 9 miles off the North Sea island of Bokum are finally turning, there is one big problem.  They are doing so only because they…

Corrupt Electricity Reporting

Posted by  Adams  on 28 August 2013, 2:59 pm

Here is a time line to help readers understand the background behind some of the Toronto Star’s reporting of Ontario electricity news.

November 23, 2010: In an email exchange Ben Chin, Ontario Power Authority VP, former Ontario Liberal candidate, and also former senior media advisor to then Premier Dalton McGuinty discusses with senior communications staffer, Alicia Johnston, employed in the Ontario Minister of Energy’s office. Johnston complains about negative reporting by Tom Adams and proposes that “We’ve got to get him (Tyler Hamilton) out as an ‘expert’ commentator.” Chin replies, “We need to throw him (Tyler Hamilton) some work.”

Ben Chin has presented himself as an authority on politics and journalistic ethics, including this interview soon after he left his then prominent career in broadcast journalism.

May 3, 2011: The Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO), closely supervised by the Ontario government, released a report on “Smart Grid” development in the province. The Corporate Partners Committee participating in the report included a Who’s Who of international energy technology firms selling Smart Grid concepts around the world. The Ontario government’s electricity policies heavily emphasize promoting Smart Grid. In a footnote, the report thanks Tyler Hamilton for his assistance in preparing this report.

Here are two examples of Toronto Star Business Section articles that subsequently appeared on the subject of Smart Grid authored by Tyler Hamilton. Both news reports omit mention of Hamilton’s IESO funding:

May 11, 2012: The smarter the grid, the less you notice it

June 29, 2012: Smart Grid, Delayed Delivery

Here is the complete response of the IESO, issued earlier today, when I sought details on how much Tyler Hamilton got paid for his work on the Smart Grid report:

Tyler Hamilton was the successful respondent to a competitive procurement process for the delivery of this report.

The IESO uses competitive procurement processes, such as RFQs or RFPs, to evaluate proposals according to a pre-determined set of criteria – including costs and experience. As with standard procurement practice, all bids submitted through this process are subject to non-disclosure agreements.

On Twitter, I have been asking Tyler Hamilton to disclose how much the Ontario government and agents have paid him and his associates like Corporate Knights. As of this posting, no response from Hamilton has been forthcoming.

The evidence presented here indicates that Tyler Hamilton’s electricity reporting in the Toronto Star has been corrupted by a conflict of interest. I have previously reported on evidence of similar politicization developing within the Ontario public service. The Ontario public service has contributed to a cover-up of the gas scandal that includes responding to inquiries from the Information and Privacy Commissioner with information she has identified as “inaccurate and incomplete”.

Given the importance of an independent press and a professional public service in protecting the public interest, the corrupting effects of Ontario’s ongoing electricity policy challenges appears to represent a substantial threat to the province’s future.

Islanders talking about wind turbines

Fight the windscam with everything you have in you!!!

Ontario Wind Resistance

Manitoulin Vultures Waiting forBird Mortality May 9, 2012 (3)Manitoulin Expositor
It has become fairly common these days to hear about various communities in Ontario fighting to stop the building of industrial turbines in their neighbourhoods. The latest to jump on that bandwagon is the Municipality of Amherstburg in Lambton County. That brings it to 64 townships that have said they will not be willing hosts for industrial turbines and 33 that have expressed concerns.

Leamington Mayor John Patterson says after attending the Association of Municipalities of Ontario conference he thinks the provincial government is willing to listen to concerns from across the province. I have yet to see any evidence of that. As far as I can tell, the Liberal government is gung-ho with the subsidies to big wind companies like Northland Power, which is in the process of building the sites for 24 industrial turbines on McLean’s Mountain on Manitoulin Island.

Since my last column on wind…

Today’s Scores From The Arctic – Russian Coastguard 1 Greenpeace 0

Greenpiss picked the wrong people to harass!!!

Tory Aardvark

Greenpeace have just made a massive miscalculation of who to mess with in the Arctic, in this case Russia.

The story goes like this Greenpeace wanted to go the Northern Sea Route in Russia’s Arctic and protest, for that read, interrupt the search for oil and gas in the Arctic, the Arctic is reckoned to have 13% of the worlds undiscovered oil reserves and around 31% of the worlds undiscovered natural gas reserves.

Entry to the Northern Sea Route is by permit only, Greenpeace applied 3 times, and 3 times the Russians rejected the application, so the nobly motivated watermelons at Greenpeace decided they would ignore the lack of permit and go anyway.

A major miscalculation by Greenpeace, the old USSR might be gone, but the new Russia led by Comrade Putin is little changed from the USSR, now instead of the KGB, there are the incredibly rich oligarchs and…

Exclusive: UN ruling puts future of wind farms in Britain in jeopardy

Another blow to the wind industry….the truth will set you free!

Tribunal warns that the Government acted illegally by denying public participation

Margareta Pagano –The Independent —  August 27, 2013

Plans for future wind farms in Britain could be in jeopardy after a United Nations legal tribunal ruled that the UK Government acted illegally by denying the public decision-making powers over their approval and the “necessary information” over their benefits or adverse effects.

The new ruling, agreed by a special United Nations committee in Geneva, calls into question the legal validity of any further planning consent for all future wind-farm developments based on current policy, both onshore and offshore.

The United Nations Economic Commission Europe has declared that the UK flouted Article 7 of the Aarhus Convention, which requires full and effective public participation on all environmental issues and demands that citizens are given the right to participate in the process.

The UNECE committee has also recommended that the UK must…
