"It is estimated that the US alone has spent in the vicinity of $2 trillion to promote the ill conceived ideas of wind and solar to power our energy grid over the last 15 years. I happen to think that is a very low number and is probably at least…"

"Thank you, Eskutassis.  It is estimated that the proponent, Cape Wind, spent nearly $60 million to advance the project and the opponents spent nearly $40 million to oppose "discontinued" wind turbines from being deployed in Nantucket…"

"WOW Barbara! Fantastically prepared piece. My only question is "Why aren't most of these guys already in jail?" I only hope that the DOI, DOE, EPA, and all the other alphabet agencies pay attention to statements like yours. At least…"

Barbara Durkin commented on Thinklike A. Mountain's blog post Solar Energy Jobs Are Economic Potemkin Villages
"The jobs claim, I recall, came about when renewables' high cost was revealed. Invented benefits are rarely realized. Contractors tell me it will be two years before solar projects they build will be connected to the grid in MA. MADE BY JINKO…"

Lessons of ENRON ignored spawn Billion Dollar Green LLC Bankruptcies

Lessons of ENRON IGNORED spawn Billion Dollar Green BankruptciesIt was nice to read a piece in the Boston Globe yesterday regarding FloWind because this publication rarely shines their light on green energy failures.  FloWind has filed for bankruptcy protection following a slew of green company failures as the result of the policies of the former MA Governor Deval Patrick Administration;  I believe that MA is the U.S. leader in green company failures.  Off the top of my head these include A123…See More

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.

“First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”
