Doctors are so wrong on renewable energy  

Credit:  1 August 2013 | www.thespec.com ~~

Doctors urge province to ramp up renewable energy; Increasing reliance on nuclear stalls solar, wind development (Opinion, July 25)

This article is so full of errors and omissions that I really hope these doctors do a better job in the business they should know best – being medical doctors.

They are wrong about the projected jobs, they are wrong about natural gas, they are wrong about coal and nuclear, they are wrong about the health impacts of wind energy, they are wrong that there is no Wind Turbines Syndrome. They are wrong about renewable energy being safer than conventional power and they are wrong when they say that renewables do not impact health.

They are not wrong when they say that renewables will produce only a measly less than 10 per cent of our power needs by 2030.

I am confident that they are wrong when they say that “doctors” urge the province to ramp up renewable energy. It is only these doctors who apparently are not clear about the impacts that the renewable energy policies will have on the future of the health and finances of the people of Ontario. The doctors are the medical officers of health in their respective municipalities (Chatham/Kent and Peterborough) which, incidentally, are municipalities that have bought into the wind energy scam while overlooking the concerns and needs of the residents of their municipalities. It seems they are trying to justify the harm inflicted on the very people they are responsible for in their communities.

I suggest the title of the article should be changed to state: Several doctors urge province to ramp-up renewable energy.
