Monique, are you still involved? I tried to call you about Dora, but ... So does Maine vote for Attorney General? You have a Public Advocate, something the lower three states does not. Ineffective.

Good day, Monique, and to all! I just sent a email to Gary S. in Lincoln with information that should stop the take-over of the hill and mountain tops in Maine by industrial wind generators! When First Wind applied to have Bowers put back on-line they stated that the wind law allows clean feasible energy to be forced down the state departments, and our, throats!! Now that we know they are not cost effective and definitely not green we can use the law to protect us from non green projects! It cost more in different fuels and electric use, and increased prices, then it will generate in its 20 life span! And there is the environment cost as well to consider, when the cement for the base for the generators is processed the pollution involved is staggering and if you add in the cost to get it to the site, etc., then a true picture of all the cost can be slowly identified!! I hope someone has started a list of all of the true cost associated with the wind generators complete life cycle to show a net loss, and also how many good jobs lost because the Federal Gov. is funding the wind generators companies that could instant fund more needed projects like making new housing for people when there is a natural disaster!! Truly yours, Lenny Murphy  phone no. 207-746-9212

My thanks for your encouraging words.  My chief source of information on Maine's Wind Power fantasia was J. Dwight.  The KJ/MS column your posted has more extended counterparts on the and  The latter has prompted a response from a fellow who clearly suspects me of evil motives.

How did he discover that?  Are there no secrets any more?

Yes, it is crazy what they are doing up here to Spruce Mountain. We can see two of the wind towers from our dining room, about 1 mile away. These things are monstrous! It's ridiculous

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 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?" 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.”

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.
