"Thank you for the analysis. I suppose some in fantasy land will tell us wind power will provide all the electricity.....and I thought only sailboats at sea got stuck in windless weather. Next it'll be cars on the Interstate waiting for a breeze."

""Sustainability" is a largely misleading , if not meaningless term that probably tested well in renewable energy focus groups years back. It sounds good until questioned, as Mr. Brigades has done here. It's vague enough that it can…"

Blood on the Blades: Is Bird Life Facing Global Catastrophe from Wind Turbines?

My master’s thesis was on the mortality of birds due to powerlines and wind turbines in the special protected area of Alentejo grasslands in Portugal. The region is populated with turbines, and the great Bustards face considerable mortality from them.Wind turbines have a special liking for raptors and can be blamed without doubt for their rapid decline in regions that host wind factories.A 2018 specialized study on the impact of wind turbines on raptors concluded that “Collision mortality,…See More

Town Hall - The Reality of Industrial Wind Power

Arguably, there is no other energy production system that takes up as much space as wind does. As an example, the newest General Electric-built turbine will be 853 feet tall, close to the height of the Eiffel Tower, with each blade longer than a football field. As the country’s energy needs continue to grow, using wind energy to meet those requirements will call for a significantly greater amount of land than would traditional energy sources. In sum, it’s important, in considering the wisdom of…See More

Green China? The Country Could Mine 400 Million More Tons Of Coal

China could add as much as 400 million tons of coal capacity over the next two years, according to analysts at the consulting firm Woods Mackenzie.

That’s about a 10 percent increase in China’s coal production capacity, which is a stark contrast to the country’s talk about closing coal mines to reduce excess capacity and fight air pollution, according to Bloomberg. “For all its talk…

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.”
