FARM NEWS – Turbine Power Challenged in Court – MPP Calls for Moritorium of Wind Energy Projects in Ontario – US Corn Crop Very Healthy – November 4, 2009

wind Boy Turbines are a hot political topic on both sides of the border.  If you drive on Highway 11 in Upstate NY it looks like a bit of a Stanley Kubrick movie as these massive turbines gently turn in the wind.

L I N K Here in Ontario the government has embraced them as an energy source of the future, but there seems to be a lot of resistance to them. ( MPP CALLS FOR MORITORIUM) Is it just politics?  Is it a NIMBY issue?   What do you think Cornwall?

Woohoo! Lets hear it for biofuels! Nothing like subsidizing Monsanto and ConAgra while at the same time starving the third world! As for the Windmills… they are awesome!
