Hide the Decline II

It seems a certain Professor and key proponent of Mann-made Global Warming is displeased with the video "Hide the Decline" published online by Minnesotans for Global Warming. Via Anthony Watts:

Penn State University’s Michael Mann, one of the central figures in the Climategate scandal, has threatened legal action against Minnesotans for Global Warming (M4GW) over the group’s popular satirical YouTube video “Hide the Decline.” The No Cap-and-Trade Coalition, a group that includes M4GW, responded today at an event at the National Press Club, releasing Mann’s threatening letter and an updated version of the “Hide the Decline” video.

“We understand why Michael Mann is eager to silence public discussion of the hockey stick scandal,” said Jeff Davis of No Cap-and-Trade, “but truth is an absolute defense.”
In response, M4GW have released an updated - I think better - video, Hide the Decline II.

Hide The Decline II from No Cap And Trade Coalition on Vimeo.

Update: I've linked to this video at Vimeo, since the sheeple at YouTub have decided to take it down. It should work OK now.

Despite continued decline in Ontario's electricity demand, prices are soaring as we move away from coal towards "green" energy.

Price of electricity jumps 12 per cent
The price for the energy portion of an electricity bill is going up on May 1
Ontario is rapidly pricing itself out of the market when it comes to electricity.
Ontario is getting less and less electricity at higher and higher prices. It's only going to get worse
And cheap electricity has long been one of the big attractions for industry to locate here. Industry that provides jobs.
