This could affect wind warriors in Maine

I apologize for this being seemingly off topic but it really isn't. The entire wind industry is based on big lies which President Trump wishes to expose. The vampires on both sides of the aisle are reacting violently to the sunlight. I'll go a step further and say that "the aisle", that is the two party system, is to at least some extent illusory. Despite the high profile signature issues of each party, they share 90% identical DNA and one strand of DNA they have in common is they are not…

Comments on Monhegan Island Offshore Wind Project to DOE

This is to call your attention to a situation in Maine which I believe is a poster child for how the forgotten American is being robbed and disrespected by the renewable energy special interests and their coterie of shills. As you will see, there is a time sensitive element to…

MORE REALISTIC ENERGY SOURCE FACTORS

This article deals with the energy from source to electrical energy user. The complete pathway must be used to enable evaluation of one energy source pathway versus another. First some definitions:

 

1. Source energy is the energy taken from mines, wells, forests, rivers, wind, sun, etc.

2. Primary energy is the energy arriving at an entity, such as a power plant. It is source energy, less processing energy (mining, refining, transportation, etc.)

3. Gross…

WORLD ENERGY VERY SLOWLY TRANSITIONING TO RENEWABLE ENERGY

Many people think we can have at least 70 to 80% of renewable energy for 10 billion people and their economies by 2050, or 2100. Prorating the $33 billion cost of Vermont’s energy transformation for 10 billion people would be $33 b x 10000/0.625 = $528 trillion, adjusting for per capita income would be 12,380/47,000 x 528 = $139 trillion.

 

NOTE: The gross world product was about $78 trillion, or $78 trillion/6.3 b = $12,380/capita, in 2014. Vermont’s GDP/capita was…

Vermont Public Service Board adopts 35 dBA nighttime noise level for wind turbines.

The PSB just issued its new rule, which has been submitted to ICAR.  See this section, excerpted from the rule, below.  This is a huge victory for us!!  They adopted the German nighttime standard of 35 dBA and the highest standard in Denmark for daytime of 42 dBA, plus a setback of 10x the total height which is what Poland requires and the Cape Cod Commission recommend.  The wind industry just sustained a huge loss.  This comes as a big surprise, and we will have to defend this through the…

EDP Renewables: "We need to lay low with this type of president"

Trump, whose animosity towards wind energy has put the industry on edge, was a major topic of discussion at the summit, the first large gathering of industry leaders since he took office. Some of his policy priorities, they agreed, have generated significant uncertainty for the industry......some of the changes being proposed could curb the availability of tax…

THE HYDROGEN ECONOMY WILL BE HIGHLY UNLIKELY

As part of the quest of having energy sources that produce near-zero CO2 emissions, energy systems analysts have looked at hydrogen as one such source. They see hydrogen as a possible fuel for transportation.

 

In California, the hydrogen economy movement has received support, in the form of subsidies and demonstration projects, from the state government and environmental groups, often supported and financed by prominent Hollywood actors.

 

Current Hydrogen…

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.
