BOWERS PROJECT DEFEATED!!

AN EPIC FAIL FOR FIRST WIND

The Maine Supreme Judicial Court issued its decision denying Champlain Wind LLC's appeal concerning a permit for its Bowers Wind Project in Carroll Plt and Kossuth Twp. Champlain Wind is a subsidiary of Maine's largest wind developer, First Wind. The decision marks the end of a six year process of hearings and appeals which pitted the wind developer against local residents, professional guides, traditional sporting camp owners and loyal visitors to Maine's famed Downeast Lakes Region. Spearheading the opposition was the Partnership for the Preservation of the Downeast Lakes Watershed (PPDLW).

Wind Farm Asks permission to Murder More (endangered) Bats, Nene

When you can't and haven't been obeying the law, just get your corrupt friends to change them............They have been slaughtering the hell out (excessive numbers ) of these endangered species for years without permission, just like the industry has done with all the hidden eagle carcasses being sent to the Denver Repository. Now these dirtbags want to change the laws they have been breaking for years because the public is catching on to their fraudulent research and the fake reporting for…See More

"Keep in mind that these comments are posturing or fraud because the Department of Energy is corrupt. Wind energy outputs reported by them are embellished and their website info about wind energy looks like it was taken directly from wind energy…"

The voice of 28,600 dead eagles 2 Replies

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

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

    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/
