What does this mean for the people in the Moosehead Region and the Sun Edison plan for a wind project? I am praying for a return to a traditional forestry focus!Continue
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.

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…Continue
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…Continue
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…Continue

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…Continue
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 -…Continue
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.Continue
Here is an excerpt from an update by Lisa Linowes of wind Action regarding the PT'Cs - Thank you Lisa for all you do!
Hi Folks. I’m long overdue in sending out this update re: the Wind PTC and what’s happening in Washington.
Where things stand: As you know, the wind PTC expired December 2014. Due to the “begin construction” language in the…
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.
What’s phony is: corporations bureaucrats guys with hard hats bulldozers earth movers tree pulverizers dynamite to blow up ridgelines lawyers guys with badges public meetings town boards public service commissions—and all that. Bogus, all. Inventions, all. Diversions from truth and all that really matters.…Continue

With the wind industry confidentially agreements are signed by employees, lease holders and even conservation groups. If you take their money there are huge hooks attached. Take a look at what Audubon agreed to with the Altamont Settlement ...................
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…Continue
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…Continue
