Wind Farm Projects Contested in Ontario


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?

Letter to my Nimby

People unite! = not in anyone's backyard : coal, gas, nuclear.

 Current energy system comes at the expense of water. We absolutely cannot afford this. We absolutely need water. And we absolutely need energy.

 We all can absolutely have both - and more!

Our communities will not be pitted against each other. No matter how much one wants to be a NIMBY, and push their woes onto other communities or disregard the plight of other communities created through our lack of energy sufficiency, what looks like an isolated struggle is the struggle for the whole earth.

The indigenous residents of Coajomulco, Mexico have no water in their homes. The government provides the water beneath them for use in other larger cities -- including a Coca-Cola bottling plant.
