Today's Green Nazi propaganda piece


This appeared today in the science section of a California newspaper with a long history of publishing false Altamont wind energy stories. Propaganda is not science.

Expedited Wind Law Expediter Karin Tilberg is Deputy Director of Forest Society of Maine

This is another example of how the pro-wind side has inserted itself in key places such as "environmental groups". Yesterday we saw how 50% of the Maine Trust for Public Lands is comprised of current or former First Wind/SunEdison employees including a senator's…

States Join Forces In Defense Of Clean Power Plan

Maine is one of the states, cities, counties, etc that have joined the "Clean Power Plan".  Here is a quote from NY State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman. 

“The EPA’s Clean Power Plan is a critical step forward in responding to the threat of climate change. The rule is firmly grounded in science and the law,” states Schneiderman. “The rule incorporates successful strategies New York and other states have used to cut climate change pollution from power plants while maintaining…

Maine Trust for Public Land 50% Manned by SunEdison Employees or Former Employees

When the wind industry moves into a state it stacks the deck in its favor as best it can. Some of the groups it invariably tries to win over, whatever the costs, are government officials and environmental groups.

If it can, it may attempt to become part of the very environmental groups it will later go to for seals of approval of its earth scarring, wildlife killing, health damaging and citizen rights crushing wind projects.

It would appear that at least two current…

Money from Dead Eagles

 This article will be published soon.........

                                                          Money from dead eagles


Altamont has been in the news a great deal lately as this wind resource area tries to garner public support for their new huge turbines being installed at Altamont. One of the major selling points for these turbines we are being fed by stories is that these turbines will reduce eagle mortality. Let's look at some hidden facts that say…

Think hard about this!  Maine is 3rd in carbon capture in the nation and we are 7th in carbon emissions. 48% of our emissions comes from the transportation sector, 14% from electrical sector, and 14% from the residential sector. We have no coal fired production facilities and only one oil fired electrical plant on Cousins Island that gets paid $4 million a year just to be at the ready when intermittent energy sources like wind fail.  We have lost 3 of our former larger industrial polluters -…

Yes, there are limits to wind power.....

Researchers at the University of Kansas are looking at how wind turbines affect the wind when a larger number of turbines remove the energy of atmospheric motion.

Where things stand: As you know, the wind PTC expired December 2014. Due to the “begin construction” language in the…

Enron Wind Development, LLC in Maine, Kenetech, Angus King, etc.

It's not very hard to start seeing the connections between Enron Wind (in Maine) and Kenetech and then Governor Angus King who may have been protecting Kenetech - in the 1990's. Their whole master plan has been long in the making.

Donald Trump: Wind power 'kills all the birds'

After his press conference, Trump walked a second gauntlet of well-wishers on his way up the steps, encountering a home-schooled girl named Annabelle and her younger brother – both of whom came with written questions to ask the would-be president for an academic project. 'I've heard you think fracking is better than wind power. Why do you think that?' the girl asked him. 'It's better. You know it's better,' Trump told Annabelle. 'Because the windmills have their place, but they kill the…

The saga of confiscation of anti-wind signs posted by the Moosehead Region Futures Committee in the Moosehead Lake area isn’t over yet but it should be soon. .A “concerned citizen” who contacted the Maine Attorney General’s office learned late yesterday that MDOT is seeking guidance from the AG’s Office.

A memorandum prepared by a public policy and legal consultant to Saving Maine, who has been supporting the Moosehead Region Futures Committee for the past three months, clearly shows…

New England Energy Spectrum, costs per kWh equivalent of all energy sources.

ISO New England? This shows that maybe other New England States have higher energy costs for some sources but also lower on other sources.
If they wish to cut mountains for a few 1/1000ths of a cent in Maine, why have they not first flattened Rhode Island and Massachusetts ?…

Maine as Third World Country:

CMP Transmission Rate Skyrockets 19.6% Due to Wind Power


Click here to read how the Maine ratepayer has been sold down the river by the Angus King cabal.

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.
