Bill aims at requring Maine’s fleet of 3,000 school buses to be all-electric

Young people without insider connections must leave Maine to find decent work while the lunatics running the asylum steadily waste tax dollars to further destroy competitiveness.

                                            

Electric school buses latest stop on Maine’s climate-change journey

Just like cars, e-buses are more expensive than their internal-combustion peers – $300,000 or so compared with less than $150,000. Range is an issue, too. Today’s batteries…

Are Maine’s clean energy policies working?

Stewardship of our natural world is certainly a good thing. However, a huge divide exists between urban centers divorced from the natural world, and a rural population who daily live in it. The urban population uses virtue signaling through environmental mandates that sound good, but don’t actually work. Meanwhile, rural folks have to live with the visual impacts of mountain top wind turbines that kill birds and bats by the thousands, forests torn by transmission lines, and the economic…

What the global warming advocates really have in mind

If successful, the global warming hustle will reclaim power from the people and return it to the kings and queens, lords and ladies who mean to rule over what's left of the world they destroy.  It will be the greatest con ever executed.  The charade is so vast and so vile that if it comes crashing down, not a single Western government will survive.  These are the stakes they created to swap freedom with…

Thorium

One keeps hearing about Thorium as a possible breakthrough energy source. It would appear there could be something to it. Certainly, given the vast amounts of money invested in other sources of energy it would not seem far-fetched to think that entrenched interests would want to keep Thorium down. What if the subsidies given to the failed energy source of wind power were instead directed to Thorium or other potential true breakthrough energy sources? Do we want to direct resources into…

750 Billion Rea$on$ Why Goldman Is Rooting For Greta Thunberg's Success

Having lost much of its central banker incubation skills over the past decade, and handing over the crown of Wall Street's most profitable trading desk to Morgan Stanley, in recent years Goldman Sachs has been best known for enabling and profiting wildly from Malaysia 1MDB criminal fraud, which culminated with the arrest of former Malaysia PM Razak, but not before Goldman made billions in illicit profits from selling bonds offered by the country's sovereign wealth fund.

And while…

China slams U.S. for not doing enough for environment ahead of U.N. climate summit

Climate Depot’s Marc Morano, who plans to attend the Madrid summit, accused China of leveraging the global-warming issue to hobble its international competition while boosting its own image.

“China is at it again, posing as a ‘climate’ concerned country while building seemingly endless new coal mines,” Mr. Morano said. “China’s false image as some kind of climate champion is aided and abetted by the media and climate activists. China is enjoying condemning the U.S. while also…

Rebranding the Term ‘Climate Change’ for Greater Shock Value

by Thomas D. Williams, Ph.D.29 Nov 2019

Climate change alarmists are pushing for a change in vocabulary to scare people into taking global warming more seriously, starting with terms like “global meltdown” and “climate collapse.”

Writing for AdAge this week, Aaron Hall argues…

College Campus Climate Change Conversation

For me, a very interesting look into today's college students and how they think. Particularly interesting is the second half, where at about the 31 minute mark the reporter attempts a conversation with the college's "Environmental Justice" group. The reporter stays composed throughout and patiently hangs in there, eventually demonstrating it's possible to have a productive discourse, even when people disagree. These are young kids, most of them seemingly good kids. It's probably a good bet…

What Might the Indirect Costs of Wind and Solar Be?

Ignoring these costs is simply Rigged Game 101.

(1) Transmission costs are much higher than those of other types of electricity, but they are not charged back to wind and solar in most studies.

(2) With increased long distance electricity transmission, there is a need for increased maintenance of transmission lines. If this is not performed adequately, fires are likely, especially in dry, windy areas.

(3) A huge investment in charging stations…

Reforesting is a good idea, but it is necessary to know where and how

Is planting trees in naturally open canopy areas such as the savanna needed to absorb mankind's "unnatural" CO2 emissions or is it mere disregard for the law of unintended consequences? Alternately, would simply letting forests do what forests do best be more sensible? If the latter is pursued and a naturally heavily forested place like northern New England alters its use of forests to heighten carbon capture, what are the local economic effects, particularly given the biggest CO2 emitter is…

Understanding the Climate Movement Part 3: Follow the Money

Conclusion.

"The total amount of money invested in businesses and organisations that are dependent upon the myth that CO2 emissions from burning fossil fuels is causing dangerous global warming (and all the follows) is probably between $1 trillion and $2 trillion. That is about the same size as the total GDP of Australia or Canada. With that comes enormous incentive to maintain the myth, to lobby government and disparage or destroy any opinion to the contrary. Many of…

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.
