“No economic, environmental sense” – wind turbines in Prince Edward County

September 28, 2017

Destruction on The County’s South Shore : no environmental benefit

 

Bell-Media national affairs specialist Evan Solomon interviewed two representatives of Prince Edward County this week on the White Pines wind power plant under construction by German power developer WPD.

Owner of the renowned Norman Hardie winery Norm Hardie and County Coalition for Safe Appropriate Green Energy member John Hirsch spoke with Solomon about the impacts of the wind power plant on the environment, wildlife, the local economy, and possible effects on human health.

Is this just NIMBY? Solomon asked at one point.

NO! the two men replied, and explained that The County is a destination for eco-tourists because of the huge numbers of migratory birds.

The pro wind answer to all anti wind concerns are the same… just like Glenny Glen Glen Thibeaults answer to our municipality and DDOWTs concerns about health issues… set backs…. etc…

“Are you sure this isnt just another case of NIMBYISM!!!!!!”

Oh Glenny Glen Glen Thibeault … you shouldnt have insulted DD like that!!!

Still waiting for Huron County Health Unit…

An investigation into health impacts of wind turbines was initiated in March 2016. (Ontario’s HPPA, Health Protection and Promotion Act).

Since then we have had one delay after another, and still no remedy for those living under turbines.

As of Sept 19, 2017, Erica Clark informed me they have heard back from University of Waterloo ethics requesting “some final wording changes in the study materials”. Meanwhile I have been told that all communications of the ethics board, including the names an positions of the applicants, is confidential.

I am asking for transparency, and for immediate action on this urgent health issue.

For further details, including correspondence and my own research on Infra sound and wind turbines, please see my web page below.

The sore point to me is that the financial gain to a few offshore companies does not offset the deficits caused locally. Those companies move on but the locals are saddled with the mess and costs forever.
Can anyone prove to me an overall benefit to IWT’S in Prince Edward County?
Stan the power man.

P.S. Finally at home for a weekend.

Norm Hardie is right. This is very “creepy”.

Make sure to try his wine and raise a toast to his courage to speak out!

Ontario is transitioning to “Clean Energy Economy” which eliminates almost all of the use of fossil fuels.

The use of natural gas is just an intermediate step in this pathway to all renewables.

Facts don’t matter to those engaged in this agenda.
