I am just coming from an Appeal Hearing for 12 50 story killer Windmills at Altamont Pass. We were allowed 2 minutes each but when Dr. Smallwood came to represent the windmill co. Well it all changed. He was questioned given as much time as needed, about what I had just presented and he was named in some of the reports, along with Granger Hunt. Well he had no idea were any of this information came from, lie. Information that Smallwood and others that are paid by windmill co. well they have…Continue

This article, which looks back at recent Maine energy legislative activity, entitled "Who benefits from this year’s changes in Maine energy laws?", makes no mention of ex-Governor John Baldacci's connection to this activity.Nor is the heinous LD 1513 mentioned by name. This is the same type of reporting that has allowed scores of wind articles to unfailingly regurgitate the wind industry's false claims, e.g., "such and such wind project will power 20,000 homes".
WHY DOES THE…Continue
If Maine had a real Attorney General, she would challenge the legality of the Alternative Compliance Payment rules in the Renewable Energy Portfolio Standards of Maine. The ACP is the cap price applied to electricity costs associated with the development of renewable forms of electrical production.

From the recent AP article announcing a plan that would allow wind companies and other power providers to "kill or injure up to 4,200 bald eagles a year without penalty" the USFWS gave out official numbers pertaining to the current population status of Golden eagles. A population I might add that has been rapidly declining in the western US.
"The Fish and…Continue
He has decried the development of wind-driven power generation for its drop-in-the-bucket inadequacy.
“At age 97, I am free to say it,” he wrote in an unusually acerbic style. “Maine people are stupid when it comes to electric energy options.”…Continue
Trump, who fought a three-year battle to stop a wind farm within sight of his Scottish golf resort and last year told a 12-year-old girl in New Hampshire that windmills “kill a lot of birds,” not so much. While Trump said in January he was joking about blaming the Chinese for fabricating the concept of climate change, he still argued it is a “a very expensive form of tax.”…Continue

I personally believe this is only the beginning - Now we will see a race to finish the Obama agenda! Killing more eagles and birds birds and pushing harder to get off fossil fuels! Aka- also known as- redistributing global wealth as stated by one UN official!…Continue
First Wind/SunEdison was said to have Financial Capacity for Wind Projects in Maine ,BUT NEVER DID!
So,here is the "difficult" mathematical analysis that any 9th grader could have done.
The basic math...SunEdison is now stated to be worth .0018 of its stated pre-bankruptcy value!!
They stated they were worth $10,000,000,000(TEN BILLION),when in fact, cash on hand was a mere
From the guy that proposed to destroy "Maine's Quality of Life" with an East-West Transportation / "Utility" corridor.
I found this and thought it to be somewhat appropriate as to how we got to the point of destroying our environment and the oxymoronic call to save it. So as they play with their piles of waste............Continue

It seems to me I have read about droughts happening for thousands of years at various times. Sometimes they last a few years or a decade. Many of our large population centers are built in areas that are very arid to begin with. They were built there because people like to live where the weather is nice, not always raining. This article is calling for sea levels to rise and contaminate ground water. I wonder how the people in Texas and the mid-west feel about a drought. We have been told…Continue

Wakefield-based Anbaric Transmission and National Grid, one of the region’s largest utilities, are pursuing a pair of projects that would link onshore wind farms in Maine and Vermont, along with Canadian hydropower, to provide electricity in Southern New England.
Lawmakers are discussing plans to force utilities to enter long-term contracts with clean energy providers to replace the energy created by retiring nuclear and coal-fired power plants, while cutting carbon emissions…Continue
Yet they do nothing, took the cash from Sunedison /First Wind (and others) in Maine and elsewhere as gifts and donations to support turbine buildout in Maine and continue to sing "Tweedle DEE, Tweedle dumb, send $$$. Despicable!

In actual fact, low pressure gradients created by huge wind turbine blades rotating at near 200 mph at their tips cause sensitive bat lung aveoli to hemmorage causing…Continue
