Re: McGuinty ducks protesters, Hamilton Spectator
Before they sited the industrial wind turbines in Clear Creek, they listened to a local bird society submission and decided to move the turbines further away from a nesting ground for wild birds, therefore closer to the homes of the residents.
Members of the University of Guelph environmental engineering department are currently conducting a study on the effects of renewable energy, i.e., wind turbines, on farming operations — chicken eggs, etc.
Yet every time a human being either expresses concern about, or complains of, illness related to the proximity of these turbines, people like Premier Dalton McGuinty and Joe Mancinelli, vice-president of Liuna and a local Liberal, say in effect: “Oh well, too bad,” ridicule them and completely ignore the demand for health studies.
At the risk of sounding incredibly arrogant, when did wild birds and farm animals get a place higher up on the ladder of our society than humans?
