Posts Tagged ‘fossil fuel business funding wind groups’

Now that the corporate wind lobbyists, the corporate wind developers and the urban media are focusing on the Ontario government’s moratorium on offshore wind development, these groups are also calling into question who is really funding the dozens of seemingly grass roots community groups across Ontario—and around the world. In Ontario, they claim it’s the nuclear power folks, or maybe Big Oil.

The truth will surprise them. And here it is:

Yup. All the work we do is with donations, small and large, from people in our communities.

That plus a LOT of volunteer hours donated by hard-working people who truly want to protect their communities, the health of their families, friends and neighbours, and who have spent time doing their own reading and learning to discover the truth.

Wind doesn’t work.

It will never replace coal as a power source.

It will not result in reduced CO2 emissions.

It will not create thousands upon thousands of jobs.

It will not “save” the family farm in Ontario.

It will, however, result in higher electricity bills for people; it will create profits–from taxpayer and ratepayer money–for huge corporate wind developers; and, it will mean more natural gas for Ontario to serve as the necessary fossil-fuel back up for industrial-scale wind turbines. And, it’s causing health problems for the people who have to live near them, who have had no choice in the matter.

Ontario’s rural communities are speaking out.
