CBC “Land and Sea” looks at wind opposition in Nova Scotia

While the government is pushing wind power, not everyone is in favour of it. There’s concern about the whirring of the turbines. In some parts of the province people are pushing back, and in other parts, people are applauding.

  1. Not a very well done report. He states one of the wind farms will power x amount of homes “at any given time”.

    How can a reporter even think about saying something like this. No grasp of science?

  2. CO2 is irrelevant, so get over it. It has never been a driver of temperature in the past. All the ice core samples show the same thing: temperature leads CO2. The AGW theory is clear that as the surface warms the troposphere will warm faster, but both satellite and weather balloon data shows that it’s not. A satellite monitoring heat escaping the Earth has found that six times more heat is escaping than the IPCC has stated. In fact, much of what the IPCC has projected has been proven wrong.

    Data trumps models.

    Science is not about consensus, but testing hypotheses.

  3. Notice how the developer never talked to anybody who has a problem while denying there are any problems. Same old same old, although he was sensitive to move turbines further back. In Ontario they just scheme with the McGuinty Government to get them close to our homes and roads.

    In Wisconsin, a member of the Wind Siting Council argued that safety is relevant and that it should be called a courtesy setback, which ended up being 1.1 times the turbine height from a property line. That is about the same as the CANWEA blade length plus 10 m.

  4. My comment should read: In Wisconsin, a member of the Wind Siting Council argued that safety is relative…

  5. CBC is just another “Bought Out Media Lapdog of The Politicians”!

    When was the last time you ever a well researched story by a REAL reporter?

  6. Saftey is relative… Of course…

    “When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone, “it means what I choose it to mean, neither more nor less.”
    “The question is,” said Alice, “whether you CAN make words mean so many different things.”
    “The question is”, said Humpty Dumpty, “which is to be master – that’s all.”

    So there you have it…

    May the turbines fall on the debaters heads…

    How many of them passed even high school physics?
