In response to the letter by Gideon Forman, Wind trumps nuclear (Dec.26): Forman mention’s “the new study,” but gives noindication of what the study is or who conducted it. He goes on to say: “Windmills produce no smog, no acid rain, no toxic ash, no radioactivewaste, no cancer.” I wonder if Forman has ever looked into how these structures are produced and from what they are produced, what their longevity is and what happens to them when they fail. His letter is about as far from accurate as one could get.
Many of Ontario’s residents arereporting health problems they claim are caused by wind-turbine syndrome, butletters such as Forman’s suggest they are all liars or possibly, it’s in their heads. There are way too many persons claiming ill effects by wind turbines, sodismissing them all is not credible.
Green energy? Hogwash.
The only thing green about wind-generated electricity is all the extra green each Ontarian has to pay for this “green energy.” Wind is notoriously unreliable, blowing when not needed and needed when not blowing – which means if the so-called non-green production is cut too much, we’ll not have the capacity needed to heat or cool our homes during severe periods of weather, resulting in the death of vulnerable people when the power fails.
