I had forgot about the internet thing, that is too funny. I think everyone should do their part for the environ, whether it be buying you're own chunk of the rainforest (kinda like the "I have a bridge for sale') or, like me, eating as much beef as I can to help curtail the amount of unnecessary methane being released into the atmosphere...I'm still laughing about time he claimed to have invented the Internet! And how he got caught for running huge amounts of electricity/energy in his mansion!
They got some PR flack to hurriedly issue a claim that he had bought a few acres of rainforest to offset the carbon. Maybe he did, who can tell. Still, wouldn't it be better to buy those acres AND not waste so much electricity?
They're all the same...
Here in Manitoba we export alot of electricity, and because of this we are fortunate that our prices for hydro here are pretty low. They are building more hyrdro dams and other products, they are also looking into the whole wind turbine thingSadly Brent, we no longer HAVE extra electricity to export for greater profit! At least, not here in Ontario.
I remember it very well. To this day around here the Petro stations are the last ones to lower and the first to raise.Are you old enough to remember when they formed Petro-Canada? We were all told that this would give the feds a lever on the gas business, so that by competition they could keep those evil greedy oil companies from gouging us. What did Petro-Can actually do? They bought up lots of corner gas station chains, where they were always the first to jack up the price and the last to lower it.
I agree with this whole-heartedly. We ship mostly south, when it should be going to help out others in the country, but when the american dollar was high, there was more profit to be had southWhat they need to do is not just a few more nuke plants but build some new transmission line corridors from Manitoba and Quebec. They have lots of surplus power to sell us but there are no wires to hook us up here in Southern Ontario. Why not give the money to fellow Canadians instead of buying from the Americans?
I'm strangely okay with this I've never been good at being a sheep and following the flock because someone said it was the thing to doCareful! You're in danger of becoming a DENIER! I have the word of Marilyn Churley that the issue has been settled and we should all shut up and do what she and the folks on her side tell us.
Profit and the potential for profit. We ran to the aid of the Balkans when they self destructed in the interest of humanitarianism and stopping genocide (strange how they have good shipping ports, minerals and more), yet we strangely forgot about places like Rwanda (which has nothing profitiable above or below ground) and seemed to ignore the 2 million people being slaughtered there.So you're right that its all about profit,
