Frosty welcome for Medical officer of health

Medical-SymbolBy Galen Eagle, Peterborough Examiner
MILLBROOK – Medical officer of health Dr. Rosana Pellizzari got a frosty reception from Cavan Monaghan Township council Tuesday after presenting a health unit report on the human impact of renewable energy projects such as wind turbines. The Peterborough County-City Health Unit report said high carbon dioxide producing energy forms such as coal have far greater adverse health effects on Ontarians as do renewable energy sources.

While there has been some evidence of health concerns for those living in proximity to industrial wind turbines, and there are two major studies on such impacts currently underway, the current provincial setbacks of 550 metres are reasonable, the report states. That message didn’t exactly sit well with a council that is trying to prevent wind turbines in its township and has long been critical of the province’s Green Energy Act.

“The Green Energy Act as far as I’m concerned is a farce,” Coun. Tim Belch said. “The government and the health unit as a mouthpiece for the government, as far as I’m concerned, is selling us a bill of goods that is complete nonsense.” Pellizzari politely took exception to being called a government mouthpiece.

  1. “…The Peterborough County-City Health Unit report said high carbon dioxide producing energy forms such as coal have far greater adverse health effects on Ontarians as do renewable energy sources….”
    What a disgraceful insult and misinformation / manipulation to say that, when Ontario doesn’t burn coal, and when Ontario’s new and expensive renewables contributed essentially nothing to getting us off coal.

  2. The Wynne puppet speaks … pay no attention to that hand up Pellizzari’s backside.

    This woman’s credibility is tainted: she was a co-enabler to FF Arlene King’s assertion that IWTs cause no harm to humans.

    Next.

  3. The Peterborough County-City Health Unit report said high carbon dioxide producing energy forms such as coal have far greater adverse health effects on Ontarians as do renewable energy sources.

    I have a simple question: Would they be so kind as to detail the adverse health effects of “high CO2” — say “0.04 to 0.05” per cent — i.e 400 -500 ppm of CO2 in the atmosphere? I am not aware of any ill effects –so I am willing to be educated. I am aware that the earth is greening due to the modest increase in CO2 over the last 50 years (or so). I am also aware that at 250 PPM the earth faces a crisis where plants would begin to die off.

    Just askin’

    I think we will find that we are dealing with people who are innumerate, illiterate and scientifically challenged — whether they see it or not.

  4. How can the County Health Unit say coal has far greater adverse health effects …..and then Pellizzari says there is not a public health position on energy in Ontario?
    Either there is or their isn’t!

    …”The Peterborough County-City Health Unit report said high carbon dioxide producing energy forms such as coal have far greater adverse health effects on Ontarians as do renewable energy sources……………
    “You make a very compelling case and I will bring your comments forward,” she said. “There has not been a public health position on energy in Ontario. We can let them know that there is an interest, if not expectations that there be something there.”

    Belch deserves a hero award for speaking the truth. Many sit back not wanting to make a fuss or chance that they lose precious funding as the morally bankrupt Carol Mitchell once warned council. The Ontario Liberals are criminal BULLIES!
    DO NOT ALLOW YOUR COUNCIL TO TAKE BRIBERY FUNDS OR YOU ARE DOOMED.

    Oh and by the way, I’ve had two more contacts this week inform me they are abandoning their homes. They are sick and their pets have been sick and they can’t take it any more. This is at two different ends of the province.
    I am so disgusted by this ongoing harm and injustice!

  5. It is the rare medical doctor with the courage to bite the hand that feeds. Instead, they mimic the spin techniques employed by their employers, and count on the masses to be apathetic uneducated, uninformed and not nearly as bright as they think they are. If you get sick because of their unethical behaviour, they count on Big Pharma to keep you docile.

    The only effective political solution is cessation.

  6. While fanciful, cessation is a pipe dream.
    Over the next few years, turbines in Ontario
    will double, triple….nothing will stop them.
    There is no effective political solution. Action
    is needed, not words.

  7. You’ll have to secede within the next
    couple of months, otherwise I think
    you’re out of luck.
