Wind Energy – A runaway failure for nearly 4 decades Part 2 of 3

Figuring out the true value of wind energy is really quite easy if the real numbers were not deliberately being hidden.  But all this has hidden, just like the thousands of eagle carcasses being found under wind turbines each year has been hidden.  Unfortunately, facts like these are hidden because people and corporations with terrible character want your money. …

DOE Annual Energy Outlook projects doubling of wind energy

BOY!  WOULD I LIKE TO GET SOME OF THE STUFF THESE GUYS MUST BE SMOKING! I have never read so many out and out lies from the DOE/AWEA.  This is the biggest puff piece I think I have ever seen.  After reading it I can see turbines in everyone's back yard.  They are going to be able to supply 12% of the US energy grid by 2023.  I don't think they are at 4% yet.  When you get into the analysis, they do hedge a little, A LOT, on the cost of wind compared to fossil fuels.  Their analysis pegs gas…

Wind Energy – A runaway failure for nearly 4 decades Part 1 of 3

Wind Energy – A runaway failure for nearly 4 decades

If you are one of the millions across America, that that believes wind energy will create a better world, you need to read the facts presented here.   This information has been hidden by the media, utility companies, your government and by most of all, a terribly destructive industry seeking profits.   

California’s wind turbines may have started a green revolution here in America. But as readers will learn here, wind…

Assessing recent warming using instrumentally homogeneous sea surface temperature records

Boy!  Here is a challenging article for you to read.  I read it, with some difficulty, and still don't know exactly what it says.  It tells about four different ways they take sea water temperatures and the variations they have. In the past most of the sea water temps were taken by ships using buckets, or water taken through water intakes in a kind of random sampling method.  In the last ten years or so, floating, drifting buoys have been used, and now also satellites have been added.  There…

Maine wind power promises failing

January 6, 2017 on Editorials, Opinion       

In 2008, Governor John Baldacci worked with a very cooperative Legislature to craft a special zoning and permitting process that significantly aided developers seeking to capitalize on Maine’s rural resources for large-scale wind power projects........Maine’s wind power law, as Governor LePage has consistently proclaimed, needs to be drastically changed.…

Wind Opponent Named "Vermonter of the Year" by State's Leading Newspaper

Vermonter of the Year: Annette Smith

Free Press Editorial Board 5:30 a.m. EST January 2, 2017

In February, the state Attorney General’s Office dropped a criminal investigation into a complaint brought by a lawyer who represents a major solar and wind developer that Smith had practiced law without a license in the course of advising those preparing to testify before the Public Service Board.

Private citizens with limited means often find themselves outmatched from…

Climate Change Skeptics Welcome Open Debate Under Trump Presidency

Dilbert creator Scott Adams has compared climate change skeptics within the scientific community to “Shy Trump Supporters” who are too afraid to say what they really think for fear of being ridiculed or worse. As we can plainly see, he wrote, “the cost of disagreeing with climate science is unreasonably high if you are a scientist.”

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.
