Dr. Patrick Moore, co-founder of Greenpeace speaks out against wind turbines

January 2012 — Dr. Patrick Moore, in a recent speech to 1000 southern Ontario farmers stated — ” the (wind) industry destroys more jobs than it creates, and causes energy prices to climb for all users.”

“The industry is a destroyer of wealth and negative to the economy,” said Moore, speaking at the 19th annual Southwest Agricultural Conference at Ridgetown campus of the University of Guelph.

Moore said there wouldn’t be wind farms in southwestern Ontario if taxpayers weren’t paying the bill.

“They are ridiculously expensive and don’t work half the time,” he said.  “And no matter how many are built, they won’t replace coal, gas or hydro or nuclear plants, because they are continuous and wind is not always reliable.”
