Nice hatchet job on Governor…Continue

Health issues such as sleep disturbance, sleep deprivation, dizziness, tinnitus, and constant headaches in humans have been ignored by the main stream media who is eager to promote "clean" solar and wind energy generation
Wind Turbines take terrible toll on animals
Excerpt: "...the sharpest barbs came from the Natural Resources Council’s Clean Energy Director Dylan Voorhees and Environment Maine’s Director Emily Figdor. Figdor criticized Gov. Paul LePage for “obstructing the development of wind power”

Some intrepid opponents of Oakfield Wind have supplied me with the first photo documentation of the destruction taking place. Click here to go to the photo album http://www.windtaskforce.org/photo/albums/oakfield-wind-destruction-july-6-2014
Here are a couple of the photos:…Continue
The companies cited more than 2,100 megawatts of proposed wind power capacity in Northern Maine as the impetus for the project.
Excerpt from Reader Comments:
So, just to be clear, CMP and Emera which operate the distribution system for just Maine electric consumers are going to coordinate their efforts to build new transmission lines in the state to ship power to southern New England. Since CMP and…Continue
This is Amazing! I watched WGME (channel 13 in Portland) 11 pm news on July 5th. Right after sports , on came an editorial. WGME is one of the Sinclair Broadcast Group stations that airs "Behind the Headlines with Mark Hyman". It was a blistering condemnation of the climate change scam. They chose to send this excellent critique out to its southern Maine audience.…Continue
I took the accompanying pictures on Roxbury Pond two weeks ago. A pair of eagles have been raising their young on an island in the pond for several decades. Most eagles hatch 2 or 3, but only one survives to fly. These eagles have rebuilt their nest in the same tree and successfully parented 2 chicks to fly from the nest year after year. The value of their DNA to future generations of eagles is enormous. But with the coming of the turbines, and Obama giving free…Continue
Almost all the rules and regulations governing alternative energy in Maine are new, Joyce echoes. “While there are plenty of the generic old white men in the business world we work in, we’re all learning together. We all have equal footing.”
That means there are fewer of the barriers women often face in more traditional industries, says Juliet Brown, who also works on wind energy as chair of the Environmental Law Group at Portland’s…Continue
Among those stunned by the agency’s move were residents of King Cove, Alaska. Interior Secretary Sally Jewell ruled in December that those in the remote fishing village could not build an 11-mile gravel road to a nearby airport because it would affect eelgrass that serves as a way-stop meal for migratory birds.
“We’d have much less impact on the birds with our road than these wind farms have on the eagles,” said Della Trumble, a spokeswoman for the King Cove…Continue

Any tax breaks or bribes will be quickly lost when we all have to pay for new transmission lines, and town officials go on a spending spree. It is not worth throwing one’s neighbors under a bus in support of a developer who does not even live near his proposed turbines.…Continue
After the vote results were announced, Julie Beckford had this to say:

First Wind's lead attorney Juliet Brown:
"The industry has some very vocal opponents who are well funded, who are very ideological, and who are motivated to show up at public hearings and legislative hearings, and that tends to be the noise that you hear," Brown says.
It's all right here:…Continue
Can't thank everyone who has donated to the Saving Maine campaign so far. Today was a great day at the "donate" button. Every dollar we raise goes to telling the truth about wind power and other environmental challenges facing Maine. So thank you all and tell your friends to show their support for the new campaign. We're in the Sun Journal, Kennebec Journal, and Morning Sentinel on Tuesday. We hope you like the ads and the messages - stay tuned. More good things on the way.

Let us see if we understand this correctly -- Maine Audubon acknowledges that bat colonies in Maine have been decimated and this has put human health at risk. Yet after suggesting in 2011 putting restrictions on industrial wind with regard to bat endangerment, in December 2013, Maine Audubon essentially green lighted industrial wind sprawl in Maine.

The Camden Hills and the islands of Penobscot Bay are one of Maine's treasures. Several wind warriors and I hiked up Bald Mt., from which summit there is a sweeping view of the islands of Penobscot Bay. Even on a hazy day, the controversial wind turbines on Vinalhaven stuck out like a sore thumb! This beautiful island has been desecrated by ugly wind turbines.…Continue

We are working on a plan to include radio this Summer. As always, this cost money and we appreciate all of you who have contributed over the past couple of weeks. Keep hitting that "donate" button at…Continue
