Maine Wind Resistance Movement May Have Reached the Turning Point

"You look at these horrible wind mills that are destroying every environment; they're destroying areas, they're destroying neighborhoods; they're killing all the birds; the windmills are the worst of all. And we're backing all of this garbage that doesn't work and it's…

NRCM's Dylan Voorhees: "We're still reeling"

President-elect Trump has said he is not a fan of energy generated from wind and solar power. That’s of high concern for Maine’s environmental groups. Dylan Voorhees, a scientist for the Natural Resources Council of Maine, worries Trump might unravel progress made by the Obama administration on the Environmental Protection Agency’s clean air and power plans, particularly a rule that’s under development to reduce mercury and other emissions that pollute the air.

“We’re still reeling…

Maine towns agree not to enforce limits on political signs on private property

“This issue gets at the intersection of private property and protected speech,” Melnick said. “Yard signs are highly protected methods of communication.”

I pointed out these three legislators last summer in an editorial to the PPH.  I also called the Governor's office to say there was a conflict of interest and I was told all three had been checked out and the Ethics Board approved all three.  Looks like a stalemate to me. We're stuck unless we get a new Ethics Committee. Maybe that's what we should work on next.  As long as Stacey Fitts has KLeinschmidt in his back pocket and Cornell du Houx has the Truman group, and Hinck has his legal eagle wife, we're not going to get any moratoriums passed in legislature because any bill presented will be killed in committee. Let's look into who is on the Ethics Board/Committee and work at changing that.

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.
