Wind Concerns Ontario’s website today features an interview with biologist and educator Dr Scott Petrie of Long Point Waterfowl. See the full story at http://freewco.blogspot.com/2012/02/wco-exclusive-scientist-university-prof.html
Dr Petrie says that now, under the Green Energy Act, wind power developers only have to follow the very inadequate regulations set out in the act and in the Ministry of the Environment’s renewable energy application process. Wind turbines are being built in some of the “worst” places in North America, he says, which will have an effect on bird populations throughout the continent. “You can’t build office towers there,” he says, “so why can developers build wind turbines?”
Ontario’s government is not only NOT protecting the environment, it is actually sacrificing it for business interests.
