The fossil fuel lobby with its paid trolls were back at it again attacking this Budweiser Super Bowl ad that had racked up 14 million views on YouTube even before it appeared on TV.
Members of the County Sustainable Group in Prince Edward County were not surprised. They had experienced the fossil fuel industry’s wrath that led to the cancellation of Trillium Power’s Project that would have provided 3.5 GW of clean, reliable and affordable energy and then the cancellation of the White Pines Project 9 wind turbines with a nameplate capacity of 18.45 megawatts (MW). Even the reaction to the CSG’s movie Up in the Air brought forth a spate of virulent commentary, supposedly from ‘citizens’.
When the CSG quickly produced a 20,000 signature petition to protest against the cancellation of the County’s wind projects, our local MPP, Todd Smith, didn’t even bother to show up.
