How about some reporting on all the corruption that supports Maine wind and its requisite new transmission?

I don't believe this was ever reported by the Maine media, just like they never reported that Ex-Gov John Baldacci, the creator of Maine's pro-wind industry expedited wind law of 2008 became vice-chair of Avangrid (Iberdrola/CMP) back in December 2015. Avangrid is the nation's second largest wind company.
Why will the Maine media publish an article about a wind company hosting a hot dog cookout…Continue
The governor's veto is narrowly sustained amid warnings that L.D. 1504 would raise electricity prices, leaving a plan to phase out financial inducements for rooftop panels in effect.

Con Ed is proposing a partnership with a group of energy developers called Maine Power Express LLC to deliver northern Maine wind power to Boston markets. Under the plan, MPX would build a 630-megawatt wind facility in Penobscot and Aroostook counties called County Line Wind. Then the partnership would deliver that power via an underground power line on an existing energy corridor that eventually connects to an underwater transmission line to…Continue

RGGI proponents want us to believe that the program is delivering on a global environmental promise, but the reality is the nine-state cap and trade system is a colossal failure of resource allocation that should be repealed to leave more efficient market forces.

Massachusetts' energy NEEDS? I don't think so. Rather the "need" is simply a government mandate engineered by politicians and regulators while the average ratepayer in the state, lied to by the Massachusetts media is oblivious. Anybody think any of those politicians are ON THE TAKE?
Given Quebec’s excellent wind resource and the willingness of dozens of its communities to host wind farms, incorporating wind energy into…Continue
Both Senators want to decorate our mountains and coast with wind installations and transmission - but somehow the article missed this part. How can you be committed to outdoor recreation and support these hideous contraptions? Answer: You can't.
From Maine’s lengthy coastline to its vast forest — and everywhere in between — the outdoor recreational economy is a major driver that injects $8.2 billion in spending to the state…Continue
Just more painful proof that wind companies can't be trusted and there is no such thing as too much financial oversight when these con-artists attempt to operate in Maine. Where is the reaction from the Maine legislature to SunEdison's collapse, given Maine was ground zero for First Wind/SunEdison's wind installations?
SunEdison Inc. won final approval for a bankruptcy plan that will leave what was once the world’s…Continue

The backlash is so fierce that Big Wind has begun suing small towns to force them to accept wind projects. ......The rural resistance to the land-devouring, subsidy-fueled sprawl of Big Wind doesn’t fit the narrative – endlessly repeated by the Sierra Club, Natural Resources Defense Council, Greenpeace and their myriad allies in the liberal media — that wind energy is “green.” Nevertheless, the numbers tell the tale. Since 2015, about 170 government…Continue
Maine needs to wake up and do the same for both lake and ocean shores and all of the interior views which are the foundation for our tremendously vital tourism industry. If the so called representatives, so called environmental groups and media were not on the take, wind power in Maine would not have a chance.
The amendment restricts the use of federal funds to conduct a site assessment or construction and operation plans for wind turbines…Continue
Russia’s Financial Support for Anti-Fracking Groups Is No Coincidence
July 21, 2017 4:00 AM @AUSTINYACK
Aware that fracking could devastate the Russian economy, the Kremlin has secretly financed environmentalist groups across the globe.
In 2014, after multiple European countries banned fracking following protests, NATO secretary general Fogh Anders Rasmussen warned that “Russia, as part of their sophisticated information and disinformation…Continue

The assets were initially seized in March from Arena and permanently confiscated on Monday after further investigations indicated they were mafia controlled, according to police.…Continue
