A Reef of Shifting Silt


Toronto Hydro wants to erect up to 60 turbines in Lake Ontario on a reef that runs two to four kilometers offshore, from the east end of Toronto to Ajax.

There's no stinkin' reef out there! I've done the geophysics out on the lake. There are these huge megadunes of shifting silt that roll over the exposed bedrock. They will have fun anchoring windmills in that loon shit! Oh, well, perhaps they can find some unemployed BP geologists to do that for them. :)

You must be available?

Nobody wanted my advice when I was available - shattered their dreams. Remember when I said they could never build a nuclear plant on Lake Erie because of the ice? They just said they would build a plant that doesn't need water!
