Dirty Business: the reality of Ontario’s rush to wind power
Finally, wind power in Ontario explained. And it’s not pretty. Or “green.”
Ontario’s government counted on “renewable” sources of energy such as wind and solar to create jobs after the failure of the auto sector. But at what price? Wind power generation is now being seen around the world as an expensive boondoggle, in which money is spent by the billions to create an unreliable, inefficient and expensive source of power.
What is the situation in Ontario? Why didn’t the lessons learned by Germany, Denmark and Spain get any attention? Why did Ontario, with its vast expanses of unused land, opt to put huge industrial power generation projects next to homes and communities?
“Urban Ontario, including city-bound journalists, are largely unaware of the corrosive effects some wind developments are having on communities, neighbourhoods, even families. This is expropriation without compensation.” –Tom Adams
