Notley Vis Klein and the Electrical power.

When @Ralph Klein privatized the electricity in this province businesses of all kinds packed their bags and left.  Sunland Biscuits on the Yellowhead Trail closed their doors and moved to Brampton Ontario.  Until this time they were shipping 5 -10 truckloads of cookies to Brampton prior to this singular catastrophe.

The well established fiberglass plant at Nisku lasted a year longer but, they gave up the ghost too and left Alberta.

An Air Conditioning manufacturer in Calgary employing 200 people  closed their doors overnight and moved their plant to Minneapolis where they undertook to manufacture heat exchangers for the tops of buildings.

Now, hungry  for her moment under the Sun, Rachel Notley had declared she is going to do away with coal fired electrical generation!  Unless she plans on going Nuclear and I don't think that is the case it means a doubling of our electrical power bills in a very short period of time.

Now, she has announced she is going to New York to look for new business on the strength of much  higher electricity costs and marginally cleaner air.

90% of the world's electricity is generated by burning coal!  What she is saying is she is prepared to go up against the world in energy pricing and hopes to bring in new business because of it.

There is new technology and emerging technology, the latter still in the labs looking for a province or country to support their research.  It is all about Carbon Capture in an actively burning coal plant; pulling Carbon Dioxide out of the smoke stack.   This is a good time to mention that Alberta is blessed with far more than our fair share of coal much of it not opened yet.

The NDP have elected to pay the billions for the carbon dioxide pipeline started by the Conservatives.  According to Notely again this is because too much money has already been spent on the lines.  Yet, there is not sufficient carbon dioxide to fully utilize the pipeline.  The NDP have hung their hat on the Shell Peace River operation for Carbon Dioxide but that project is for sequestering the gas in the lower reaches of the aquifers and it is a long way from the path of the carbon dioxide pipe she has supported.

This can only go two ways.
The first, she has no intention of doing away with the coal generation; it is all for show on the world stage.  Or; she can invite one of the start up or even mature carbon dioxide collectors to join the fray in Alberta and truly become a world leader even making money on the development.

All in all;  I think she is taking some very bad advice!

PS: An interview in the press yesterday has Notley telling the news guy she would never do any thing to hurt Albertans.  By her standards she will happily kill us with kindness.

A reason to rethink immigration!

Here is a broad discussion that demonstrates just how dumb we are to open our doors because of some kind of mid-east crisis.

Add to this a first hand view:

Third World Invasion: Eyewitness Description, September 5, 2015

An eye-witness account from Kamil Bulonis, a Polish travel blog writer, who was present on the Italian-Austrian border on September 5, 2015,
as swarms of Third World nonwhites  poured across the border to invade Austria and Germany (A translation from Polish): 

(Please note: all pictures from the Hungarian-Austrian border)

“Half an hour ago on the border between Italy and Austria I saw with my own eyes a great many immigrants …

With all solidarity with people in difficult circumstances I have to say that what I saw arouses horror … This huge mass of people – sorry, that I’ll write this – but these are absolute savages … Vulgar, throwing bottles, shouting loudly “We want to Germany!” – and is Germany a paradise now?

I saw how they surrounded a car of an elderly Italian woman, pulled her by her hair out of the car and wanted to drive away in the car. They tried to overturn the bus in I travelled myself with a group of others. They were throwing faeces at us, banging on the doors to force the driver to open them, spat at the windscreen … I ask for what purpose? How is this savagery to assimilate in Germany?

I felt for a moment like in a war … I really feel sorry for these people, but if they reached Poland – I do not think that they would get any understanding from us … We were waiting three hours at the border which ultimately could not cross.

Our whole group was transported back to Italy in a police-cordon. The bus is damaged, covered with faeces, scratched, with broken windows. And this is supposed to be an idea for demographics? These big powerful hordes of savages?

Among them there were virtually no women, no children—the vast majority were aggressive young men … Just yesterday, while reading about them on all the websites I subconsciously felt compassion, worried about their fate but today after what I saw I am just afraid and yet I am happy that they did not choose our country as their destination. We Poles are simply not ready to accept these people – neither culturally nor financially.

I do not know if anyone is ready. To the EU a pathology is marching which we had not yet a chance to ever see, and I am sorry if anyone gets offended by his entry …

I can add that cars arrived with humanitarian aid – mainly food and water and they were just overturning those cars …

Through megaphones the Austrians announced that there is permission for them to cross the border—they wanted to register them and let them go on—but they did not understand these messages. They did not understand anything.

And this was the greatest horror … For among those few thousand people nobody understood Italian or English, or German, or Russian, or Spanish … What mattered was fist law… They fought for permission to move on and they had this permission— but did not realize that they had it!

They opened the luggage hatches of a French bus—and everything that was inside was stolen within short time, some things left lying on the ground …

Never in my short life had I an opportunity to see such scenes and I feel that this is just the beginning.”


And who pays for ISIS, remember the young boy's body was found on a Turkish Beach!
