Logging Ain't What It Use To Be

On Monday night, I took my last college class and was able to draw a sigh of relief. It was so good to get it finished and concentrate on our Supreme Court Appeal for Spruce Mountain in Woodstock, Maine. For those who are not aware, here in Woodstock we have been working hard to get safe distance and sound concerns dealt with by the DEP and BEP. Both departments have disappointed us by allowing no hearings so that we could counter the projects estimations on their reports on sound, ect.…

There Comes a Day of Doubt

                The news and verification that Bayroot, LLC, is being powered by Yale University Investments, has changed the aspect of our fight. Or has it? For some it is the affirmation of what was suspected and in others it will be like a slap in the face. How can you fight something so big?

                When you consider what their investment is taking away from the Native people of Maine and the seasonal people, it will be a greater loss to the people then to some large group…

Request for financial Aid

Dear Friends and Family,                   

            As the President of Friends of Spruce Mountain it falls upon my shoulders to inform you as where we stand with our Appeal.

            The DEP, did not acknowledge our concerns about the Spruce Mountain Wind Project. I am convinced that LD2283 has left their hands tied and they cannot legally say no to these projects. They are working with what they have been given, which is not much thanks to Ex- Governor Baldacci’s task…

Hi Leola,
Wednesday at 6pm at the Rumford Library, our wind education group of the river valley meets, where we discuss strategy to advance our cause. I would like to extend an invitation to you to join us there, if you can. If not, I will keep you informed.

Hi Leola,
We met in Augusta. I was with Freemont. My name is Dan and we are from Dixfield. If you have been following the wind happenings in Dixfield, you are probably aware of the wind debate taking place Feb 4 at Dirigo High beginning at 5:30 pm. Freemont is making up a poster with photos depicting the beauty of our mountains as well as photos showing the destruction caused by road building and tower erection. I sincerely hope you will attend and perhaps make up a similar poster for the Woodstockscenery. I read your letter to the editor in the Sun. Very well written. I added a comment(macmac is my web name) I would also like to see people from our group put in writing their feelings about wind farms and post on this site where we all may print copies for handouts at the Dixfield meeting. Maybe title it " letter to Dixfield " so we all know the purpose for submission. Keep talking to the folks in Woodstock and Bryant Pond. They will listen and understand why we are right.
 
 
 

Hannah Pingree on the Maine expedited wind law

Hannah Pingree - Director of Maine's Office of Innovation and the Future

"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."

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT

******** IF LINKS BELOW DON'T WORK, GOOGLE THEM*********

(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 https://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?" https://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.” https://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.”
