For years I had an office right beside that wind turbine in Pickering. For the whole summer, it never turned! You could hang clothes on it to dry! Now they want to install a bunch of them on a 'shallow reef' out from the Scarborough Bluffs. Hello? Have you seen all the seismic work we did out there? There is no shallow reef! It's all drifting silt.
Another case of geology being ignored for the greater cause of getting something approved. But, as we've seen with the Niagara Collapsing Tunnel, geology always bites back!
