Good to see former EUT Co-Chair Stacey Fitts working for the wind industry he helped while in the EUT. He was also a member of both of Governor Baldacci's wind task forces. And of course heinous expedited wind law creator Baldacci was made vice chair of Avangrid, the nation's second largest…Continue

We all know that dense reliable energy sources like oil, natural gas, and nuclear are beneficial and support modernity because per unit of their mass, they produce large amounts of mobile electron generation and power when efficiently utilized. Wind and solar as we all know are expensive low density faddist political "green" costly items that only produce feckless intermittent sources of power . They must be subsidized too at high levels by our tax dollar and must utilize fossil backup…Continue

Block Island, R.I.Residents Fall For Wind Turbine Story Second Time
A very interesting and scientifically driven study of how climate change has increased the size of plant life, specifically forests, and increased the size of the plants themselves due to climate change. They specifically note both an increase in the temperature and an increase in the water available is the primary reason this is happening. While this is a real positive aspect of climate change, it is…Continue
For the last 30 years the Energy Policy in the US has been backwards. We have spent too much time trying to develop expensive, unreliable "renewables" like wind and solar and have neglected the innovations in nuclear and hydro. It is far cheaper to build hydro but the government has gotten in the way and we have totally avoided nuclear and the new nuclear technologies. China is eating our lunch while we waste our time on fraudulent claims about wind and solar and storage…Continue

Public Service Board retains setback limit of 10 times the height of the turbine; a 500-foot turbine would have to be at least 5,000 feet from the nearest residence.
Obama's Energy legacy is failing New England, and even ISO NE is telling us that the shutdown of coal, nuclear and oil plants in New England is going to leave a massive hole in the grid. They are even saying wind and solar can NOT fill the gap as they are not sufficient, don't have grid support and are not reliable enough to work. Within a year or so, Pilgrim will be shut down and all the coal plants will be gone. The green movement is fighting the gas pipeline at all levels, being headed up…Continue
Citizens in 20 localities rejected wind-power expansion. Big Wind’s lobbyists and promoters love to claim that their projects are being welcomed by rural communities everywhere. The reality is rather different. Last Tuesday, voters in 20 rural towns in Michigan went to the polls and rejected or restricted the expansion of wind energy.…Continue
The Cape Wind Autopsy

Public safety issues had not yet been addressed through Zoning that would eliminate ocean areas from…Continue
