In the current issue of Rural Voice, publication of the National Farm Union of Canada, is a column by Ontario resident Robert Budd.

Right off, he puts the boots to the notion that we must bring in wind power because people are dying from coal. In Ontario right now, less than 3 % of our power is produced from coal-fired power generation … and we’re only using coal because we need to keep the plants on in case of a high peak of demand. Mr Budd notes that Denmark uses far more coal to create power, and comments, “If people are dying in Ontario from 4 percent coal use, it’s a wonder the Danes aren’t extinct…”

Indeed.

If only these arguments were just silly, and not a horrendous excuse for industrializing communites, wrecking scenic vistas in a thoroughly beautiful province, crushing property values and actually making people ill.

Read Mr Budd’s column here … and be inspired to write something yourself!
