Penny Gray commented on Willem Post's blog post GERMANY, CALIFORNIA AND VERMONT STAGNANT CO2 EMISSIONS
"Any talk about reducing CO2 levels that doesn't include a discussion about integrating more nuclear into the grid is wasted energy.  If people were truly serious about the subject, we'd be building molten salt reactors."

Penny Gray commented on Long Islander's blog post Massive solar project planned near wind farm in Maine
"Just think, most of the UT could be carpeted with solar panels in a few years.  All of rural Maine could become a huge industrial power plant feeding intermittent and unreliable energy into the southern New England grid!"

"Judging from the drone shots of the turbine, the generator is burnt toast.  And officials aren't sure if it will need to be replaced?  Perhaps that's their way of saying...why bother?"

Penny Gray commented on John F. Hussey's blog post Turbine fire Schuylkill NY State last night!
"There's fire on the ground underneath it.  This is going to happen in Maine, too.  In dry windy conditions, many thousands of acres could be burned in a wildfire."

Audubon op-ed needs comments!

Just stumbled across this op-ed from the president of Audubon in Huffington Post.  Part of a membership drive promoting wind power.  Hypocricy at its worst.  http://www.huffingtonpost.com/david-yarnold/why-each-of-us-can-make-a_b_8922224.html

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.”
