Peterborough Examiner, Re: “Energy plan must shrink nuclear and grow renewables” (Column, July 23) –
I am very disappointed that our medical officer of health, Dr. Rosana Pellizzari – along with Dr. David Colby, medical officer of health for Chatham-Kent – both of whom were “technical experts” for the infamous May 2010 King Report – would allow their names to be added to the opinion piece published in Monday’s Examiner.
The College of Physicians and Surgeons in a report noted that Dr. Colby’s “expertise is in medical microbiology and infectious disease, an area quite distinct from audiology or other fields related to the physical impact of wind turbines on human health.” He simply does not possess the necessary credentials.
Most of us know that Gideon Forman is simply a paid pawn for an organization that has questionable ethics.
I for one am very thankful that Ontario has not reduced “our reliance on nuclear power.”
Did Pellizzari, Colby and Forman not know that earlier this month when we were at record highs for the year in terms of power demand and temperatures, the industrial wind turbines in Ontario were at times generating as few as 3MW while nuclear power generated close to 11,000MW.
As for their closing comment re “human health,” will Pellizzari and Colby now “fess up” to knowing back in May of 2010 that the indirect causal links were willingly omitted from the King Report? That is a query I posed to Dr. Pellizzari in a Jan. 2, 2013 letter that she has not yet responded to.
