The United States and European Union Join Assault on Ontario’s Green Energy Act

This fall looks like it’s turning out to be a dark one for the Ontario Liberal Party. Two weeks after Japan filed an official trade dispute over the Green Energy Act to the WTO,  it looks like two more major world powers have taken issue with McGuinty’s controversial energy policy.  Last Thursday the United States [...]

Mr. Suzuki, it’s evolution not revolution

When Solar make sense

Solar power -  its abundant, clean and good for the environment providing electricity that is carbon free and renewable. But is it affordable?

Former OPA head has the right idea

This is an oldie but a goodie.  The fifth estate did a story in 2008 entitled  “The Gospel of Green”.  The piece basically praises the renewable movement in Germany under the divine supervision of Hermann Scheer or as he has been aptly nicknamed  ‘Europe’s Al Gore’.  The piece then goes on to question the conventional [...]
