Deborah Andrew commented on Long Islander's blog post Why are we risking the sanctity of the environment for a few bucks?
"As a child I visited a friend whose family owned a home in Quogue, on Dune Road, that had its own private beach.  The changes in Quogue since the 1940's and 1950's are a reflection of both over development, a lack of foresight, and an…"

"Thank you for this excellent posting,  As co-founder of a fledgling organization, Citizens for A Wise Energy Policy, I would like to have your permission to send you a list we have created, of all the reasons why Industrial Wind Turbines are…"

Deborah Andrew commented on Dan McKay's blog post Pledging Blind Allegiance To Party To Kill A Bill.
"The notion that either the Democratic Party or the Republican Party or those politicians aligned with their party of choice are guided by ethics or serving the common good is a myth fiercely protected regardless of the abundance of evidence to the…"

Deborah Andrew commented on Dan McKay's blog post A Process That Brings Government To The People Versus A Government Removed From The People.
"Some thoughts, for whatever they may be worth: Decisions arrived at by majority vote are deeply flawed for several reasons: (1) the majority may not be motivated by the common good, (2) the majority may not be well informed, (3) the minority, no…"

Deborah Andrew commented on Long Islander's blog post Did Maine Rep Janice Cooper Attempt to Besmirch Maine Citizens at LD 1810 Public Hearing?
"In addition to the clear effort to discredit Chris O'Neil's thoughtful testimony, like most legislators, Ms Cooper is not at all informed about the cradle to grave costs of mining, manufacture, transport, installation, maintenance &…"

Deborah Andrew commented on Brad Blake's blog post Testimony on LD 1810 by Brad Blake
"Your testimony is outstanding.  I am not a facebook user, and would like your permission to email information about the potential role of regenerative agriculture as an alternative to the rush to claim that industrial wind turbines and solar…"

Deborah Andrew commented on Long Islander's blog post Maine needs new natural gas capacity to control our energy costs
"As someone living on a very limited income, I understand the need to find sources of heat, electricity that are affordable. However, 'natural' gas is obtained via hydrofracking.  This process uses thousands and thousands of gallons of…"

Deborah Andrew commented on Long Islander's blog post After 25 years of term limits, Maine still has plenty of career politicians
"I am thrown to pose a perspective that is new to me: perhaps we would want 'career politicians' if they actually served the public good.  This is not to suggest that once being elected, those in office are automatically there until…"

Deborah Andrew commented on Thinklike A. Mountain's blog post Climate Groupthink: Understanding Intellectual Error
"I am unable to get to the original document via the link provided in the summary document.  My computer indicates this is not a 'secure' connection.  Is anyone able to get to the original (rather than the summary)?  If so,…"

Deborah Andrew commented on Dan McKay's blog post A Failed Representative State Government
"This is but one example of the discrepancy between what most people believe: that our form of democracy serves the common good, and the reality: our form of democracy is deeply deeply flawed.  This is but one example.  There are…"

Deborah Andrew commented on Long Islander's blog post Fuel security is the greatest challenge to continuing New England power system reliability
"It is my belief that, should all of the subsidies be redirected toward conservation, retrofitting every building/home, legislation that requires 50 mpg or more for all vehicles, and other conservation measures (close all overseas military bases and…"

Deborah Andrew commented on Long Islander's blog post Maine may face brownouts, higher electric prices
"It would be wonderful if 'natural' gas were a wise source of energy.  Unfortunately, the methane released into the atmosphere and the enormous amounts of fresh water that is laced with chemicals, required for each well, contaminating…"

Deborah Andrew commented on Long Islander's blog post Dudley Gray: Put your wind turbines in the Berkshires
"As a Massachusetts resident, I cannot support any project that harms the land, air, water, well-being of the citizens of another state ... especially if it is done, under whatever pretext, to benefit people in my state.  That said, I am…"

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 Long Islander's blog post BDN - Massachusetts picks $950M Maine project as backup option in power deal
"As a resident of MA, I am appalled that my state government would even consider destroying the mountains and beautiful landscape of Maine for any reason whatsoever. Beyond this, neither industrial wind turbines nor solar arrays are benign or…"

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.”
