Helping people understand the green economy and green jobs is worth it

The other day, I was in the Steelworkers Centre in Hamilton when a worker who volunteers there came in with a small town newspaper he had picked up when camping. He had marked several stories about the “hazards” of wind turbines and the “wasteful” Green Energy Act. He then proceeded to debunk them.

“These farmers are worried wind towers are going to screw up their GPS. How?? Is the wind going to bounce around satellites in space? This is BS”, he said.
 
And he was just as sure of himself on the criticism of the Green Energy Act. “They’re saying that if I’m against coal plants, I’m against wood burning stoves??? And the green act isn’t working? How come the few good jobs around here are building the stuff?” 
 
Some days it pays to get up in the morning.
