An ill-wind in Ontario

2014_06010079Toronto Sun, Tom Harris
Environmentalists often talk about people whose lives are ruined by man-made global warming. But they never mention the lives that are devastated by misguided climate change policy.

There is no better example than the debilitating human health impacts of the hundreds of thousands of industrial wind turbines (IWTs) that are being erected around the world to supposedly mitigate climate change.

In “Adverse health effects of industrial wind turbines,” a 2013 paper in the magazine of the College of Family Physicians of Canada, Dr. Roy D. Jeffery, Carmen Krogh, and Brett Horner explained, “People who live or work in close proximity to IWTs have experienced symptoms that include decreased quality of life, annoyance, stress, sleep disturbance, headache, anxiety, depression, and cognitive dysfunction.”

“The problem is not just cyclical audible noise keeping people awake but also low frequency infrasound which can travel many kilometres,” notes Dufferin County-based Barb Ashbee, who says she was forced out of her Amaranth, Ontario home by the siting of IWTs too close to it. Read article

  1. Yes indeed,and Agenda 21 pops up with there phoney climate changes that we the useless eaters are causing.
    Blame it on the masses and give them an excuse to capitalize and brainwash the masses.
    Government is a tool to profit on the human resource in there domain and register all of them as corporate little silly citizens as it will be a proud flag waving sponsor of a corporate flag called corporate CANADA also traded on the New York stock exchange

    Yep and people reading this will just continue on as corporate citizens and nothing changes as far as getting pubic servants to be servants.
    Back to sleep everyone carry on with the bull crap and keep taking it in

    ‘Environmentalism Gone Mad’

    Mr. Carlin worked for the EPA in Washington from 1971-2010

    [Mr.Carlin] ” The climate-industrial Complex or ‘CIC’. The CIC includes the science elites, main stream media, environmental groups, leftist politicians, ‘green’ energy, and fuel producers and promoters, pr myth-makers and others who-profit financially, professionally and personally from foisting a future climate fantasy on an unwary public.”

    Same thing is taking place in Canada and why rural Ontarians are not being heard at QP.

  3. Thanks for the link, Barbara, but the article is now no longer available on the WT site.
    That book is available through Amazon. It sounds like a thorough assessment of the ‘CIC’. People need to know how all of the agencies work together to hide the truth.

    I think that the reason that rural Ontario’s are not being heard is because their paid and elected Municipal leaders have not gone en masse to Queen’s Park to assert ,in a responsible way,on our behalf.
    Are they all afraid of losing their positions?

    Would that happen if hundreds of them went together to push back?

    We need a turning point here in Ontario and we need it now.

    Wayne County in a financial emergency, review team concludes
    Snyder now has 10 days to agree or disagree with findings

    Wayne County is in a financial emergency, the state’s five-member independent review team has concluded after less than three weeks of pouring over the county’s books.

    According to a release from the Michigan Department of Treasury, the county’s past four audits “revealed notable variances” between revenue and expenditures in the county’s $500 million general fund as first budgeted, then as amended and then as actually realized. Actual expenditures in three of those four budget years also underestimated revenue by between $16.7 million and $23.7 million.

    Unfunded health care-related liabilities are estimated at $1.3 billion, the release says.

    Other factors in the review team’s determination were that there were also unbudgeted expenditures, violating the state’s Uniform Budgeting and Accounting Act, and that no consensus exists on whether to complete the failed Wayne County Jail project in downtown Detroit or abandon it in favor of renovating existing correctional facilities elsewhere in the city.

    In June, County Executive Warren Evans asked the Treasury Department to determine whether a financial emergency exists. Two weeks later, the Financial Review Team was appointed.

    Since that time, the review team has met with elected officials, department heads, union leaders and others on the financial state of the county, which says it has a $52 million structural budget deficit caused in large part by falling property tax revenue, significant legacy costs and budget overruns by some county departments.

    Evans said in a statement that the review team’s determination “validates the work done by my administration to reveal the true financial status of Wayne County.”

    “Our $52 million structural deficit in Wayne County is real and unless we solve it now, it will continue to grow year after year,” he said. “While we have already taken significant steps forward to stop the debt from accumulating, there is still much work to be done.”

    Since taking office Jan. 1, Evans and his team have taken measures that have accounted for about half of the deficit, most recently a lawsuit settlement with certain county retirees expected to save the county about $20 million a year in expenditures for health care benefits .

    The county has a pension system that’s only about 44 percent funded, and its bond rating has been downgraded to junk status by ratings agencies.

    Gov. Rick Snyder now has 10 days to determine whether he agrees or disagrees with the review team’s assessment.

    If he agrees with the review team, county officials can select from one of four options: a consent agreement with the state, appointment of an emergency manager, a neutral evaluation or Chapter 9 municipal bankruptcy.

    Members of the review team are:

    Clarence Stone, director of legal affairs for the Michigan State Housing Development Authority.

    Jeffrey Bankowski, chief internal auditor for the State Budget Office in the Michigan Department of Technology, Management and Budget.

    Tom Davis, deputy director in the Senate Majority Policy Office.

    Sharon Madison, owner of Detroit-based Madison Madison International Co.

    Frederick Headen, legal adviser for the Treasury Department and a member of the Financial Review Team for Detroit.
