Paid to twist the Eagle Raptor Kill and Mininize Mortality, got you!

I am just coming from an Appeal Hearing for 12 50 story killer Windmills at Altamont Pass. We were allowed 2 minutes each but when Dr. Smallwood came to represent the windmill co. Well it all changed. He was questioned given as much time as needed, about what I had just presented and he was named in some of the reports, along with Granger Hunt. Well he had no idea were any of this information came from, lie. Information that Smallwood and others that are paid by windmill co. well they have…

BDN Omits Baldacci Wind Company Vice Chairmanship from its Energy Retrospective

This article, which looks back at recent Maine energy legislative activity, entitled "Who benefits from this year’s changes in Maine energy laws?", makes no mention of ex-Governor John Baldacci's connection to this activity.Nor is the heinous LD 1513 mentioned by name. This is the same type of reporting that has allowed scores of wind articles to unfailingly regurgitate the wind industry's false claims, e.g., "such and such wind project will power 20,000 homes".

WHY DOES THE…

Something Is Illegal With Maine's Renewable Pricing Methodlogy

   If Maine had a real Attorney General, she would challenge the legality of the Alternative Compliance Payment rules in the Renewable Energy Portfolio Standards of Maine. The ACP is the cap price applied to electricity costs associated with the development of renewable forms of electrical production.

   The 2008 initiation date set this price at $57.12 per megawatt-hour. Annual price changes with the consumer price index and has risen to over $66.00 per megawatt-hour…

Why I can boldly proclaim the Interior Department to be a corrupt government agency in collusion with the wind industry

From the recent AP article announcing a plan that would allow wind companies and other power providers to "kill or injure up to 4,200 bald eagles a year without penalty" the USFWS gave out  official numbers pertaining to the current population status of Golden eagles. A population I might add that has been rapidly declining in the western US.

This man’s expertise, enthusiasm have driven Maine’s energy dialogue for decades

He has decried the development of wind-driven power generation for its drop-in-the-bucket inadequacy.

“At age 97, I am free to say it,” he wrote in an unusually acerbic style. “Maine people are stupid when it comes to electric energy options.”…

Trump calls climate change a hoax

Trump, who fought a three-year battle to stop a wind farm within sight of his Scottish golf resort and last year told a 12-year-old girl in New Hampshire that windmills “kill a lot of birds,” not so much. While Trump said in January he was joking about blaming the Chinese for fabricating the concept of climate change, he still argued it is a “a very expensive form of tax.”…

The Biggest FRAUD and PONZI Scheme Ever Perpetrated Against Maine's Citizens in the State's History?

First Wind/SunEdison  was said to have Financial Capacity  for Wind Projects in Maine ,BUT NEVER DID!

So,here is the "difficult" mathematical analysis that any 9th grader could have done.

The basic math...SunEdison  is now stated to be worth .0018 of its stated pre-bankruptcy value!!

 They stated they were worth $10,000,000,000(TEN BILLION),when in fact, cash on hand was  a mere

$18,000,000(18…

More Alarmism From The World Bank . . . . When Will The Madness End?!?!?!

It seems to me I have read about droughts happening for thousands of years at various times.  Sometimes they last a few years or a decade.  Many of our large population centers are built in areas that are very arid to begin with.  They were built there because people like to live where the weather is nice, not always raining. This article is calling for sea levels to rise and contaminate ground water.  I wonder how the people in Texas and the mid-west feel about a drought.  We have been told…

Crooked Mass lawmakers are discussing plans to force utilities to enter long-term Maine wind contracts

Wakefield-based Anbaric Transmission and National Grid, one of the region’s largest utilities, are pursuing a pair of projects that would link onshore wind farms in Maine and Vermont, along with Canadian hydropower, to provide electricity in Southern New England.

Lawmakers are discussing plans to force utilities to enter long-term contracts with clean energy providers to replace the energy created by retiring nuclear and coal-fired power plants, while cutting carbon emissions…

Exploding Bat Lungs as the Cause of high death rate from Wind Turbines Known in Maine by Audubon for Years

Yet they do nothing, took the cash from Sunedison /First Wind (and others) in Maine and elsewhere as gifts and donations to support turbine buildout in Maine  and continue to sing "Tweedle DEE, Tweedle dumb, send $$$. Despicable!

EXPLODING BAT LUNGS from Wind turbines known for years.

In actual fact, low pressure gradients created by huge wind turbine blades rotating at near 200 mph at their tips cause sensitive bat lung aveoli to hemmorage causing…

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.
