Wind turbine blades for recycling at GFS.

Wind turbines generate clean and renewable power, but when their blades reach end-of-life, the options – burning or landfilling – aren’t so…

NOVA SCOTIAN SUBSIDIARY OF AUSTRIAN COMPANY TAKES SECOND AIM AT ANOTHER SMALL RURAL TOWN

The current Pisgah Mountain LLC wind energy facility here in Clifton is not enough for the foreign SWEB corporation. Starting in 2016, SWEB has been getting its ducks in a row for another attack on our community. In 2016, it bought out about half of Pisgah's land area, over 100 acres, to add to its 49% ownership of the Pisgah facility and SWEB took out a 5 year option to buy an adjacent large tree growth parcel whose owner had refused to support…

FOLLOW THE GREEN BRICK ROAD TO THE WIZARD BEHIND THE CURTAIN

Jumping off from Gov. Mills reference to her 20 buddy governors on their hunt for a green new deal:

Climate change is ‘hammering’ our state, Janet Mills says

A new report released by Environment America outlines ways that U.S. governors can immediately address climate change and protect the environment. Here is Gov. Janet Mills' response.

Climate change is a priority issue. Our Office of Policy Innovation and the Future is preparing a climate agenda which I will…

We Don't Need Solar And Wind To Save The Climate -- And It's A Good Thing, Too

Basically this article is supportive of nuclear energy, but it has some other good points and facts. And gives the real data for contradicting the Denmark and Germany wind energy fable of happily ever after.

We now know that, in the real world, electricity grid managers cope with the unreliability of solar by firing up petroleum and natural gas generators.

As such — while there might be good reasons to continue to subsidize the production of solar…

Searing Heat Is Hurting Texas Wind Power

Wind farms -- which now account for about a fifth of the state’s power mix -- are forecast to generate significantly less electricity this week as the heat builds and keeps turbines from spinning. Wind generation may peak at about 5,900 megawatts on Thursday and 6,900 megawatts Friday, less than two-thirds of what they totaled a week earlier, according to grid manager Electric Reliability Council of Texas, or…

THE BIG DISCONNECT BETWEEN POLICIES AND REALITIES

Don't know about anyone else, but last week's few days of bitter cold weather didn't make me any more or less believing in 'global warming'.

We need more than weather statistics and computer models to justify all the consequential, societal, environmental and economic upheaval that has come as part of the energy policies foisted on us by the climate change enforcers.  …

PISGAH MTN LLC TRIES FOR A 'PROTECTIVE ORDER' FROM THE MPUC

Thank you those who have made comments to the PUC relating to Pisgah Mtn LLC being morphed into Austrian wind company WEB and how that looks to be contrary to the intent of the Community-Based Renewable Energy Program. Today Pisgah filed a new motion with the PUC asking for all information to be kept confidential. In other words, asking the PUC to not expose their attempt to conceal the LLC's lack of financing.

If you can, please go to the Maine PUC website and go to case file…

Hannah Pingree on the Maine expedited wind law

Hannah Pingree - Director of Maine's Office of Innovation and the Future

"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."

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT

******** IF LINKS BELOW DON'T WORK, GOOGLE THEM*********

(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 https://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?" https://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.” https://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.
