This is a real Laugh

I wrote an Email to the PPH editorial board about some rather rabid personal comments made by our friend Mike White on the article shilling "renewables".  They responded back that they had heard some of the off color remarks fron "kenindy" but were not familiar with Mike White.  That is a real laugh.

MaineBiz - Need for clean energy spurs wind farm development — and opposition

The word "need" in the title is bogus. What it really should say is government mandates. Just as the wind industry has "gotten to" key legislators in Maine to put in the fix, they have done the same with key legislators in southern New England with regard to mandating ratepayers buy wind.

Excerpt:

O'Neil counters: "Utilities are thrilled to build new transmission and get their guaranteed 12% return on equity. When you add it all up, building wind is essentially an…

More BS from FMM/CPO'N

The recent claim in the Maine Biz story by FMM/CP O'Neil that they assisted 36 UT's in the EPA removal process is blatantly untrue. Of the 40 files on the LUPC site, 14 petitions were filed by citizens in the Moosehead region - O'Neil had nothing to do with these petitions. I also expect that he had nothing to do with Lexington, Molunkus, and Carroll.

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT WHERE YOUR MONEY WENT

As you pay your taxes today ( or if you are a good one who can't wait to give your money away and pay your taxes early), check out where your money went! Or at least nearly $59 billion of it - to support wind and solar and other renewables.  The Federal  DOE 1603 Program is the renewables grant program - out and out giveaways! The Mercatus.org article details, in particular, the Federal DOE 1703 and 1705, renewable energy loan guarantees.  I feel like I've been had - you might also after you…

Why ABC Birds "Bird Smart Wind Energy" is a bird slaughtering cover-up

According to ABC this is Bird-Smart Wind Energy.

We developed and support the concept of “Bird-Smart” wind energy development, which is designed to minimize bird fatalities. Bird-Smart wind energy adheres to the following principles:

  • Ensures turbines are located away from high bird collision risk areas;
  • Employs effective mitigation to minimize bird fatalities;
  • Conducts independent, transparent post-construction monitoring of bird and bat deaths to help…

BDN - SunEdison to file for bankruptcy as early as Sunday, source says

Such a move would represent a fall from grace for the former darling of Wall Street and the renewable energy sector, whose rapid, debt-fueled expansion with solar and wind energy plants around the world proved unsustainable. 

In January 2015, SunEdison acquired First Wind, which built multiple projects in Maine. In December, the company sold its Oakfield and Bingham wind projects in order to have cash on hand.

It also is part of a joint proposal with Emera Maine and Central…

The Dirty Little Secret of Climate Change

Adrian Vance has summed up the real facts of CO2 and other gasses in our atmosphere and how the Warmers have twisted the politicians, media and public into this multi Trillion Dollar panic.  It is short but good reading.

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.
