Editror Jane Wilson and Dirty Business: the reality of Ontario’s rush to wind power contributor Dan Scharf appeared recently on the Five O’Clock Train show on the University of Ottawa’s radio station, CHUO.
The hour-long interview with host Denis Rancourt covered the global wind industry’s successful marketing of industrial scale wind power as “clean” and “green,” the huge corporate profits to be made, the potential for health effects, and why the Ontario government under Dalton McGuinty is ignoring complaints about wind power as it’s being implemented in Ontario.
“Wind power is a pretty mediocre technology,” said Dan Scharf. “I really have to admire these guys for the way they’ve marketed it.”
But Ontario’s electricity consumers are suffering under the weight of significant increases in energy costs, and the people who are forced to live near the wind power projects are experiencing property value loss, loss of quality of life, and a significant number are experiencing effects on their health.
“I believe this is a new environmental illness,” said Jane Wilson, who is a registered nurses as well as a health care and business writer.
