Wind turbines: ‘Get used to it,’ says minister Duguid « Wind Concerns Ontario

It’s interesting to see that because there seems to be financial action on the manufacturing of turbine blades, and that Siemens now has cut a deal with Samsung for 600 MW of wind generation, that this is an indication that wind energy has validity, so we better get use to it. Set aside the fact that wind worldwide only provides 1% of the electrical needs after 15 years of hefty European subsidies at 200 times the rate received by any other source of energy. To hell with the idea that places like Germany and Denmark only get 5 to 7% of their electrical needs from wind turbines despite installing 20% of their capacity with wind. Who cares that the industry receives these subsidies for the next 20 years and desecrates prime agricultural land, bird and bat populations and does nothing towards reducing GHG emissions or reducing the use of coal. Clean energy is nothing but a dirty lie! and we are being duped.

  1. I would say to the Minister that he and the idiot they call the Premier, should get use to not having a job in government come election time. Rural Ontario is not their play ground for experimentation. The government’s wind power projects are not only destroying the landscape of rural Ontario and damaging people’s lives, but they are making my electricity usage nearly unaffordable. Don’t demolish the coal plants as OPG has invested millions of dollars to upgrade them so that they run 90% clean. There are hell of lot of other industries and factors that are impacting air quality then a couple of coal plants.
