Energy analyst: Wynne’s plan to double-down on wind projects is “really drastic stuff”

Brian LilleyArchive

If you live in Ontario, you know that the government has messed up one file more than any other and that is the energy file. And they’re about to mess it up even more.

The province is putting out more contracts for windfarms despite the fact that the big push for green energy that pays well above market rates, causes us to produce more power than we use which we then sell at a loss, is it possible that they’re going to be building even more?

I interview Tom Adams, an independent analyst and commentator on energy and environmental issues to see if he can help us understand what they could be thinking.

This is a fantastic documentary on the Ontario Wind Energy Scam…

DOWN WIND – Wind Farm documentary – FULL DOC in HD

Talks about how Ontario loses $1B a year just in selling excess power to neighboring jurisdictions.

Wynnie’s got to keep dancing for those interest payments. She doesn’t give a damn what the people want, she wants to remain in power, so that the take down of Canada can continue. Roast in hell Wynnie!

And with every new tower, and with every turn of every tri-blade, sooner or later, millions of innocent birds and bats are going to be decimated, including endangered species… So much for “Green Power”… Care to explain Winnie The Poo, Gerald Buttskie, Saint Suzuki. Chubby Chicken Al Gore, Catcher’s Mitt Notley?…

I am looking forward to when the “Panama Papers” are released disclosing the names of Canadian citizens. I would not be surprised if we see past and current Liberal Politicians on the list! I would bet that millions in bribes have been paid to politicians in connection to Ontario’s green energy programs. I know for a FACT that a former Minister of Energy has a home in Costa Rica. I wonder why?

To be sure it is madness to continue building these wind farms that produce energy we don’t need a prices we cannot afford but what bugs me is the inept reporting on this subject that usually concludes that the Liberals are incompetent or “mad”. There is one obvious explanation for the continuance of these programs. CORRUPTION! You can be sure that Liberal party insiders are getting very rich off of these scam energy projects and this has been going on for over 10 years!! One of the early wind farm contracts (worth $450 MILLION) was awarded to a former Liberal Party of Ontario (and Canada) President despite the fact he had ZERO experience in the Power industry!

This Queens Park Hansard from 2004 shed’s light on the CORRUPTION inside the Liberal government. We have been getting scammed by the Liberals for over ten years!

“This has to be deliberate, even a 10 year old kid could do better than this.”
What it proves is that a 10 year old is smarter than a Liberal politician.
Get out of Ontario while you still can get some $$ for your homes, Ontario is circling the bowl and its only a matter of time until the creditors pull the handle.

“Is there any limit to liberal stupidity? Do they realize money is finite?”
Socialists think the gravy train is unending, in some cases they simply print more money if they cannot get it from the people as history shows, which of course in turn sets up a rapid decline in their economy. But trying to explain economics and accounting practices to a socialist is akin to talking to a box of rocks, a futile effort.

I thought Ontario had sunk as far as they could go but I was wrong. They were paying gas fired plants not to generate power because they had a surplus and couldn’t store the energy. This is the same time they were selling electricity at a discount to Michigan and New York. Manufacturers moved from Ontario to Michigan and New York because electricity was too expensive in Ontario. So now Ontario is basically giving away electricity for free or maybe Ontario is now paying Michigan and New York to take Ontario electricity because they have too much electricity and cannot store it and have a continually weakened demand. Ontario has current contracts for wind farms being installed for power Ontario does not need and cannot sell above one cent. Chiarelli announces a new round of contracts for more wind farms for what was the reason again. Did I understand this madness correctly? This has to be deliberate, even a 10 year old kid could do better than this. This makes about as much sense as negative interest rates as the last ditch effort to squeeze a little more money before the entire house of cards come crashing down. Wynne needs a good exit strategy planned but where can she go? Who the hell would want that thing?

If we were able to look into Wynne and her Gang of Idiots,finances I am sure we would find that they all have large investments in the Wind Turbine Manufacturing industry.

Cows in fields with Turbines, have an average milk production, that is 20% less than cows that are away from turbines. The noise makes them nervous.

Crops in fields of Turbines do not grow well and only 50% of produce is of any use. Worms and other critters move away from Turbines because of the vibrations, this results in poor soil quality.

Correction… “Not let” should have been “Notley”

How thankful I am to have Brad Wall as my Premier. He is everything that Wynne and Not let are not. Starting with being practical. Unfortunately with equalization we cover for the horrible Green Energy boondoggle. One has to ask "Is the Dominion still working for the West anymore? "

George Dyer pretty much, i am sure they think they can tax us 110% if they need to,
commented 2016-04-06 18:55:21 -0400
And because Wynne’s “green” plan is working so well, Notley is going to adopt it and do an NDP " improvement to it.

Yes, yes, I know what you are thinking. You are thinking, “How could Wynnie’s green plan be improved upon, it is just so gosh darn good!” Well, I say to you, Notley’s gangrene thumb is far superior to the Liberal plan because the NDP are, well, just so gosh darn better at wasting the tax payer money that Wynnie.

Expect great things from Notley’s plan. Yuppers! Expect the best!

Contracts go out. Payments are made. Winning vendors kickback large amounts of cash to Notley.

Rot in hell Notley you nazi filth!!!

Finite money? The eco-whackos (mis-)use the word sustainable so much that they think it also applies to our money.

Spreading the green ideology on the backs of tax payers and at a cost of their standard of living. The liberal vision realized. They asked for it, but the problem is Ontario’s problems are Canada’s problems so these problems are spreading to people that didn’t vote for them.

Thanks to equilization

Insane…. more wind more CO2 |(from the back-up power)…. overall, a net increase…. BTW, hydro electric generation in BC costs 5.8 center per Kw/h… how does Ontario wind compare?
