What's below is sponsored by a pro-wind government sponsored "working group" here in Michigan.  Be sure it will be a hatchet job.  May be it's time for the rest of us to show up in force to make a…Continue

self guided wind farm tours with google earth

Google Earth has collected "street view" imagery for a high percentage of America and Europe's rural areas and most of that work has been done very recently so street view can be used to explore many existing wind farms.

Below are some screen shots of a 250 turbine wind farm near Zeewolde, Netherlands. The wind farm is old enough that GE imagery shows the turbine pads. To explore the wind farm go to Layers in Google Earth and turn on "street view". Then go to Gallery and turn…

Good news for the NIMBY's, reinforcements are on the way.

The Nimby club is about to get a LOT larger because a Canadian developer has proposed to put 165 windmills on Lake St. Clair. This may be the first time in the US there is a proposal to put windmills in full view of a major metropolitian area and on water as precious to the locals as Nantucket Sound is to people on the east coast. (Where are those native american sunrise worshipers when you need them.)

Suppose the Canadian side of the lake is fully developed wiith turbines.…

How to Fight the Big Wind Onslaught

Calvin Luther Martin, January 2009

Yesterday I turned 61. I've been fighting the wind bastards well over 4 years. Four years devoted to almost nothing else. Put a big book on…

What I envision, is two mills in the middle distance, and a forest of windmills in the background.
The two mills are in state waters, just beyond is federal waters, where the Ocean energy Institute wants to build an untold number of windmills in their quest for ....ammonia!

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 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?" 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.”

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.
