Why Corrupt Governments LOVE Wind and Solar Farm Ponzi Schemes

Western economies have been devastated by overspending, under-taxation, growing energy costs and competition from cheap non-union producers (notably China).
"We" don't make anything anymore.
The Liberal Governed Province of Ontario, from whence I write, is about as corrupt as a "democratic" government can get. Prior to the last election, they wasted $1 Billion to relocate 2 gas plants because there was a risk of losing the ridings. Then they hired an outsider to delete all the emails between top officials.  This, a few years after their Minister of Energy, without authorization, signed a $9 Billion contract with Samsung to build windfarms forever in Ontario.
Ontario can't afford to make autoparts anymore. Energy costs and union wages are too expensive. Food processing is closing down and moving because it isn't feasible to process our own tomatoes here.
So what do the "Lieberals" do? The same as other bankrupt governments.
They cling to the life raft of  "renewables" which not only saves the planet, but also on the surface generates jobs. But, of course, they don't generate jobs because the energy it produces is too expensive - it is not, and never will be, a viable product.
The job "creation" is in fact a transfer of wealth - from taxes of people who pay taxes, to people employed in making "renewables". It's very similar to hiring one guy to dig a hole, and then hire another guy to fill it in. Both of them working long enough that when their jobs are over, they can draw unemployment insurance, which is a transfer of funds from ALL Canadian taxpayers.
Now, with their successfully fooling Ontario residents with this scheme, they can move on to "carbon taxes". Which sucks money out of everyone's pocket, so the Liberals can give it to their friends.
And as evidenced by the last election, which saw the Liberals give huge wage increases to teachers and other union workers, there are enough people on the government dole and in government jobs, to win the election.
Time for the torches and pitchforks.

The G77... There's a "G77"?

I expect that they are 11 times more noisy than the G7....
And collectively have an economy 1/11th of the G7.
And every member is 11 times more corrupt than any member of the G7, which is really saying something.
I suspect that all 77 members have 1/11th  number of patents and books published of any member of the G7.
And I suspect the chatter among themselves is fascinating.

Newsweek: Really Says $1B UN Enviro Bucks Used to Build Coal Plants

So Japan used a pile of UN money designated to save the planet from hated CO2, to finance Japanese companies building efficient, cheap coal generators in Indonesia...

It is not about saving the planet, it's about taking money from one place - successful economies - and giving it to basket-case corrupt economies.

When Environmental Activists Get Their Way... Towns Die....

Protestors Force Plant to Close / Town's Largest Employer & Taxpayer

Richard Brooks, forest campaign co-ordinator with Greenpeace Canada, responded to the Resolute's criticism by saying the company can only blame itself.
"A forest products company like Resolute needs to demonstrate the commitment to sustainability," he said in an e-mail.
"This is where Resolute's leadership urgently needs to re-focus their efforts for the sake of the long-term health of the forest and viability of their operations and the communities that depend on them.”

Remembering Michael Crichton

Michael Crichton was a brilliant and enormously successful writer. He was the prototype of Hollywood heroes; handsome, a doctor, rich. Sort of the exact opposite of Michael Moore; except for the rich part. He would have been expected to be a member of the in-crowd which can be loosely described as liberal, pro-government, pro-wealth transfer, and pro-everything to do with humans wearing hair shirts for driving SUVs etc. But he wasn't.

He is what has been referred to as a "denier"; because he refuses to accept the "consensus" that mankind is causing the global warming that is resulting is us all freezing in our woolies... (note: of course the truth as Crichton knows it, "deniers" are actually the truth tellers and the real consensus does not agree that the settled science is that man is causing "climate change").

From Michael in reference to his book,  "State of Fear".

Imagine that there is a new scientific theory that warns of an impending crisis, and points to a way out. 

This theory quickly draws support from leading scientists, politicians and celebrities around the world. Research is funded by distinguished philanthropies, and carried out at prestigious universities. The crisis is reported frequently in the media. The science is taught in college and high school classrooms. 
I don't mean global warming. I'm talking about another theory, which rose to prominence a century ago.

Occams Razor and Household Waste

Illegal dumping of waste is replacing drugs as organized crime money maker...
More evidence of the stupidity of modern government.
J. Delingpole of the Daily Mail

My comments...
The principle of Occam's Razor is: “Of several acceptable explanations for a phenomenon, the simplest is preferable, provided that it takes all circumstances into account.”
So what would be the application of this theory to garbage pickup and disposal?
The simplest way to deal with garbage in a city is for everyone to simply put out his or her garbage in a bag (or bags) and someone comes along and picks it up. No muss no fuss.
Our current approach to garbage pickup includes centralizing it as much as possible in one entity with municipal employees making substantially more money and getting considerably sweeter
fringe benefits than equivalent employees in the private sector enjoy. It requires residents to carefully sort their garbage into various piles and store it for a week. It is picked up and put on a
truck, taken off the truck and put on a much bigger truck which then drives it about 100 miles, dumps it and then turns around and drives back a hundred miles empty. Certain types of trash:
paper, plastic and organic waste (mixed with nonorganic waste) are treated differently; theoretically it would be sold to be reused.
Problem is that most - almost all -  of these sorted waste products have no buyers or are contaminated so they are stored in warehouses.
Much of the world has taken advantage of new technologies by making a gas from the rubbish or burning it to create additional energy from waste.
This utopian solution works almost everywhere, but not in Canada.
Why? Because this would somehow violate our shepherding of the planet and eliminate a large number of government jobs. This without taking into account the environmental costs of treating
garbage like a VIP limo patron and driving it a hundred miles and then burying it which then results in previously appointed farm land spewing methane.
Is there a prospect that the simplest, least expensive and most environmentally sound method of disposing of our detritus will ever be seen in Toronto?
With the gang now running city hall not any more chance than a householder not having at least one maggot attack during the course of a warm summer.
In a postmodern world garbage removal is like everything else that government does these days: form wins out over function.
