I'm new - what should I do? -- Take a deep breath. There is lots of help available. A good place to start is the "Websites" tab on this page. It will take you to a listing of a number of local Maine wind groups. A good strategy is to review these sites and contact a group in your area of the state. There is often a good chance that members of that group will be in a good position to give you advice that is most relevant to the area in which you live. And by all means, please sign up as a member here. It's 100% free and you will be able to start communicating with CTFWP members right here - right away.

DEP Presentation to the EUT March 3rd 2015

DEP Presentation to the EUT March 3rd 2015This video was recorded in Augusta, Cross Building, Room 211. It is about an hour long. Commissioner Aho makes reference to seeking that the legislators provide some sort of protections for the UT's that they do not have equally to towns such as the ability to create ordinances or other methods.(maybe a hint that communities should be doing so?)…See More

Call for unity

As a dedicated supporter of all anti-wind groups, especially those based in Maine, I am mortified to learn of the recent intramural backstabbing in our "movement." I just don't understand why someone thought it would even remotely be considered a good idea to foment dissension within our ranks. We are ALL on the same team. We may disagree with each other about strategy, tactics or decisions, but we ARE ALL ON THE SAME TEAM! We are at a distinct disadvantage, in peril because our opponents are…See More

An update on North America's eagle slaughter by wind turbines

This fraudulent industry has voluntary regulations. With these voluntary regulations this fraudulent industry has reported very little of its eagle mortality. Yet since 1997 and including 2014 numbers about 31,000 eagle carcasses have been shipped…Continue

The voice of 28,600 dead eagles 1 Reply

The wind industry is currently asking for 30 year eagle killing permits. It is long overdue that the public took notice to the Putin style politics taking place with the Interior Department and the wind industry. Most of the public is not aware…Continue

    Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT (excerpts) From Part 1 – On Maine’s Wind Law “Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine if the law’s goals were met." . – Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting, August 2010  http://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-power-bandwagon-hits-bumps-in-the-road-3/From Part 2 – On Wind and Oil Yet using wind energy doesn’t lower dependence on imported foreign oil. That’s because the majority of imported oil in Maine is used for heating and transportation. And switching our dependence from foreign oil to Maine-produced electricity isn’t likely to happen very soon, says Bartlett. “Right now, people can’t switch to electric cars and heating – if they did, we’d be in trouble.” So was one of the fundamental premises of the task force false, or at least misleading?"  http://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-swept-task-force-set-the-rules/From Part 3 – On Wind-Required New Transmission Lines Finally, the building of enormous, high-voltage transmission lines that the regional electricity system operator says are required to move substantial amounts of wind power to markets south of Maine was never even discussed by the task force – an omission that Mills said will come to haunt the state.“If you try to put 2,500 or 3,000 megawatts in northern or eastern Maine – oh, my god, try to build the transmission!” said Mills. “It’s not just the towers, it’s the lines – that’s when I begin to think that the goal is a little farfetched.” http://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/flaws-in-bill-like-skating-with-dull-skates/

    Sign up today and lend your voice and presence to the steadily rising tide that will soon sweep the scourge of useless and wretched turbines from our beloved Maine countryside. For many of us, our little pieces of paradise have been hard won. Did the carpetbaggers think they could simply steal them from us?

    We have the facts on our side. We have the truth on our side. All we need now is YOU.
