Against Industrial Wind Power: It's a war...

On December 15, 2011, CHUO 89.1 FM (Ottawa) The Train's Denis Rancourt interviewed two prominent members of the political resistance to industrial wind power in Ontario: Jane Wilson and Dan Scharf.

Both guests are authors of chapters in the new book edited by Jane: "Dirty Business - The reality of Ontario's rush to wind power". Jane is a registered nurse, editor and award-winning writer. She is a member of the North Gower Wind Action Group. Dan has a degree in statistics and computer science and experience in product marketing, sales management, and risk management.

"This is a war between rural residents, landowners, and municipalities on one side and corporations, the provincial government, and environmental NGOs on the other. It is a war fought around a host of conflicting issues -- bird kills, coal plants, nuclear safety, wind turbine footprints, subsidies, energy strategy, property rights, and political agendas. It is a war..." (Dan Scharf in "Dirty Business")
