I have no idea how you missed this story…

http://www.theglobeandmail.com/report-on-business/25/james-cameron-explorer-by-heart-filmmaker-by-trade/article1789930/

In executive suites across the country, James Cameron’s much-publicized September visit to Alberta must have set tongues a-clucking. After calling the province’s oil sands a “black eye” for Canada, the supremely confident Hollywood director had been invited to come see them for himself.

Mr. Cameron ended his brief tour – which included meetings with local politicians and aboriginal leaders – by calling on the Alberta government to do a better job of managing oil-sands pollution. To his credit, he showed a sophisticated knowledge of current conservation efforts. And as a native of Chippawa, Ont., Mr. Cameron couldn’t be written off as a Yankee megastar delivering Canadians a patronizing lecture on the environment.

On that note, Mr. Cameron also admitted that he used to be hotheaded and rude on the set – a leadership style he now regards as counterproductive. “You have to inspire people to do their best by respecting them,” he said. “Even going into a room where you know going in that you’re probably going to disagree with almost everything the other person says, if you respect them, you’ll still find some way to be constructive. And if you don’t, then you can yell at them.”

But standing you up for a debate? Another matter…

A confidential document on The Energy Policy of the Governing Liberal Party was released today in Ontario by the opposition Conservative party. The Energy Policy of the Liberal Party is widely considered to be a failure — with skyrocketing energy prices and increasing health concerns over the noise from Industrial Wind Turbines.

Excerpts from the document:

**************************
* “In this it will be critical to ‘confuse’ the issue in the political/public/media away from just price.” (p.2)
* “Lack of considerable economic investment (jobs) to yet come online (lots of announcements to-date but few have actually been realized yet).” (p.3)
* “Residential rates will increase another 36 percent in 2012.” (p.14)
* “ Research needs to support this, and should be coordinated with MEI and OPA.” (p.7)
* “In order to talk past the noisy activists (Hey, that’s us!) and editorial positions, there needs to be a coordinated, paid, earned and social media campaign.” (p.9)
* “Further research is also required post spike in bill fury, including focus groups to colour, wording and emotion to craft effective, targeted messages”. (p.8)
* “Perception that the pro-renewable sector (industry, ENGOs, etc.) have been too quiet and need to be mobilized. This needs to be addressed immediately!” (p.4)
* “Goal is to have $300,000 in hand through contributions from developers and manufacturers to seed the campaign. Each developer asked for a financial contribution of $15,000-$30,000 to support this effort. Anonymous contributions to the campaign are possible.” (p. 11)

*********************************

The renewable energy sector is heavily subsidized via Income Tax credits and direct charges added to energy bills. In other words — taxpayer dollars.

The Liberal Party is no asking that some of the money be returned to the Liberal Party and it’s organizers to further the campaign to extract more tax dollars to pay for over-priced wind and solar energy.

This is the new frontier for the Green Movement — Energy!

This type of campaign will be coming to a place near you. Hang onto your wallet!
