    I am shocked, SHOCKED, I say – to read that a politician did NOT praise windmill farms – after all windmills will SAVE THE PLANET, and the CHILDREN (who may never see real snow!!!)

  2. scizzorbill says:

    97% of wind farmers do not agree.

  3. TomC says:

    NPR, of all media outlets, recently did a report on a wind farm a town was deconstructing because it was leading to depression amongst the local residents. It was also creating a low-frequency noise that was sickening the people who lived around the turbine with vertigo-like symptoms.

    True, and so is global warming climate change. Some call agw a hoax, fine, but I like scam better. The fear mongering Chicken Littles have been crying wolf for decades now with their never ending broken record bullshit in their effort to pull the wool over our eyes and psuh the climate change scam.

    They are slowly but surely waking up from their slumber. Increasingly the media is breaking ranks.

  6. Sparks says:

    The 20% discount will be offset by an increase in electricity prices for the consumer, the so-called new powers will also be used to block fracking if not entirely used for this purpose, it’s a circle of deception, money and politics are involved. What a surprise!!!

  7. Jimbo says:

    The left leaning and Labour supporting newspaper reports the same story.

    But children are taught that windmills make you HAPPY !!…

  9. Ben says:

    97% of wind-farm-bladed birds last words were “I agree with the environment secretary…”

    I have no problem with wind farms where they might make sense (i.e. anchored off of Hawai’i in the trades), but land – based farms are an environmental and aesthetic disaster. The energy density per unit land area is low, and I’d bet that all the ‘conventional’ and nuclear plants combined have killed fewer animals than wind farms do in one year.

    Wind turbines are always an interesting topic here in Ontario Canada!
    http://ontario-wind-resistance.org/2013/06/03/nextera-sues-activist-for-use-of-offending-logo-and-video/

    NextEra Energy has made good on its threat to sue a local anti-wind activist. The company, which has several wind energy projects slated for Lambton and Middlesex Counties, is suing to stop the use of “offending logos.”

    The company has filed a lawsuit in Toronto saying Esther Wrightman’s use of NextError and Next Terror on her websites Ontario Wind Resistance and the Middlesex Lambton Wind Concerns. Court documents say the use of the logos “is false” and is “likely to mislead the public as to the character” of NextEra.

    The company takes issue with being linked to terror. “NextEra is operating in full compliance with the law…the defendant is aware or is recklessly indifferent to the fact that the term ‘terror’ and ‘terrorist’ is reserved or organizations with extreme and violent criminal aims,” the lawsuit says adding the terms are usually linked to organizations such as Al-Qaida and Hezbollah. “NextEra is a law-abiding organization that has consulted extensively in the defendant’s community. It has committed no acts of terror or violence.”

    NextEra wants Wrightman to remove all references to NextError and Next Terror and a video showing the company cutting down an eagle’s next in Haldimand County. It’s also seeking damages saying Wrightman may have gained financially through donations to the website for various wind groups.

    We live in interesting times.
