Deborah Andrew commented on John F. Hussey's blog post Stop subsidizing the Big Wind bullies
"How annoying to allow the people to voice their concerns.  Wha ashame, to not be able to simply always get your way.  The people should just get out of the way...right?  I don't think so!"

Deborah Andrew commented on Eric A. Tuttle's blog post Cumberland considers putting solar array on landfill
"I  wonder: how much CO2 would be sequestered if the land fill were to be covered with trees?  Can this be done?  The mining and manufacture of solar panels is extremely harmful to the environment.  Additionally, as the sun not…"

Deborah Andrew commented on Long Islander's blog post An Order Establishing the Maine Wind Energy Advisory Commission
"The problem: the public is not directly involved.  This sort of effort is best undertaken by individual towns, or groups of towns at the most.  Service on such an ad hoc committee must be open to all who are interested, regardless of…"

One approach for communities concerned about Industrial Wind Turbine development: get your town gov. to establish an ad hoc Wind Advisory Committee.  The most courageous towns allow anyone with an interest to join the committee.  This eliminates bias and has the best results I know of.  Ck out Renneselaer, NY (or ask me to attach cc.  The town decided, based on their recommendation, to ban IWTs.

Downsides of Solar Panels, Solarphotovoltaics - Paul Ackerman post

I am among the very few I know who question solar.  My perspective is based on the writing and research in Green Illusions, The Dirty Secrets of Clean Energy and the Future of Environmentalism by Ozzie Zehner.  A blog post by Paul Ackerman indicated that he has spoken to an aeronautical engineer about the downsides of solar.  I would very much appreciate receiving more detailed information, including sources.  Good and well-intended people I know simply are unable (and unwilling) to even…

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.”
