Ontario Energy Policy What Should it be?

Does Ontario have a formalized energy policy? If so Ontario's so called energy policy is very much in dispute with many different kinds of interests claiming that elusive policy as their own. Take Nuclear Power in Canada - Appendix 1 for example:http://www.world-nuclear.org/info/inf49ai_Ontario_Energy_Policy.html Or consider the following:Excerpted from: What Went Wrong with Ontario's Energy Policy?

Wind Farm Projects Contested in Ontario

http://windconcernsontario.wordpress.com/2010/04/14/oxford-county-wind-p...

Wind Conerns Ontario seems to be commenting on every wind farm and or wind turbine project in Ontario.

At first I thought this group were advocates promoting wind power as an alternative source of energy. In fact, it seems as if Wind Concerns are concentrating on everything that either has or can go wrong with the development of wind power in Ontario.

40 day low carbon lunch challenge

Hey all, I just posted an In Cahoots article from TakingITGlobal, and thought babblers might be interested in this 40 day low carbon lunch challenge.

Personally, I'm horrible at bringing lunches from home to begin with, so I always end up buying lunch at work.  Which is not only hard on my pocketbook but also on the environment.

So I'm thinking seriously about signing up for this challenge.  Anyone want to sign up with me?
