Dalton McGuinty’s government has chosen to ignore empirical evidence that strongly suggest serious health problems do occur with the installation of industrial wind turbines.
Consider, if you will, that gasoline engines will be a memory in the not too distant future. Ethanol is another pie in the sky fuel as it takes fuel to produce it, therefore defeating its very purpose.
So, it would seem that electric cars are definitely going to be a part of the mix folks.
We have seen new technology and amazing discoveries that will make us all wonder why we ever used the internal combustion engine for as long as we did.
There is a company in California that has come up with an electric engine that is just as fast as most cars. Yes, it’s out of reach for most of us right now, but it will not be long before it’s available to us all.
The problem however, will be where are we going to get all this electricity from? It certainly will not come from industrial wind turbines. If Premier Dalton McGuinty thinks it’s a problem in summer now for the grid to cope, he ain’t seen nothing yet! It will not matter that the cheap time for recharging your car might be after midnight because the demand for power is going to rise steadily. Think about it, how many nights has the wind kept you awake? No! Well what’s going to make the turbines spin?
We need a program of nuclear power station building like we have never seen before if we are to meet what’s going to be the largest demand for electricity the planet and Canada has ever seen.
As an ordinary citizen, it bothers me that the powers that be spend our tax dollars on industrial wind turbines without any thought given to the ongoing health, massive property value loss, and a source of power that is going to be the single most expensive utility that the homeowner will ever encounter, it will even cost more than property taxes, in most areas, and that’s really saying something.
The demand that will be needed in this country for manufacturing will far exceed the supply the province can ever hope to produce in peak periods, let alone when air conditioning starts up.
Or perhaps by then, they will use the “smart boxes” to shut our air conditioners off?
