Taken for Fools by Our Elected Officials in Maine

The Presidential election this year looks to be shaping up around the theme of corruption - the game being rigged - our elected professional politician officials selling out the masses to line their piggish pockets. There is no question - we have been betrayed.

 

Here's a quick glance at what has been happening in Maine. This is likely just the tip of the iceberg.…

But numerous property owners have signed leases which will pay $15,000 per year for every turbine.....

In other words, these persons have made a decision to sell out their neighbors by putting their own welfare ahead of their neighbors' to a magnitude that will forever change the lives of their neighbors, harming their health, happiness, property values, etc.

So in this case the neighbors are fighting back which is the only thing to do when a neighbor and perhaps so called friend decides to sell you out. Don't let them tell you that you are interfering with their property…

Sen. Brian Joyce Massachusetts Wind Turbine Advocate FBI IRS RAID

State Senator Brian Joyce a Milton Democrat has agreed today to cooperate with a state ethics investigation that he used his office to benefit clients of his law firm........Massachusetts has a failed financial fiasco when it come to the state commercial wind turbine renewable energy goal of 2000 megawatts of renewable energy by the year 2020. The state has only installed around 107 megawatts of commercial wind because of litigation over the poor placement of megawatt turbines in…

2 UPC Renewables transmission towers in Ilocos Norte bombed

Two transmission towers operated by wind farm developer UPC Renewables collapsed on Thursday night, following a large explosion, Pasuquin town mayor Peter Felix Aguinaldo said on Friday.

Residents in the mountainous village of Tadao, about 25 kilometers from Laoag City, reported hearing an unusual sound on Thursday evening and discovered the toppled facilities that transmit electricity produced by wind farms here.

Police said they received reports that bomb fragments were…

"Maine can export this energy to other resource deprived states"

I wonder how the author of this article would enjoy a 500' tall pounding and flashing industrial wind turbine right next to his home keeping his neighborhood free of eagles, bats and home buyers. I wonder whether he believes Ct and Mass are truly "resource deprived", or just really lacking in people who can be walked on. This article cries out for rebuttal.

"Maine’s potential to grow solar, wind, biomass, wave…

Very Important EUT WEB TUNE IN ALERT at 1PM

Rep. Dion's bill LD 1513 will create a loophole so companies like Iberdrola (where ex-Gov Baldacci is Vice Chair of their newly formed Avangrid affiliate) will be able to own wind projects. Presently a transmission company cannot be in the wind business. That is about to change unless the handmaidens of the special interests can be stopped in their tracks. Baldacci committed himself to this in September 2009 upon his return from a trip to Europe where he met (as Governor) with Iberdrola. It…

PPH - Wind power critics upset by scale of newly proposed Maine projects (Tux Turkel)

Woodcock was reacting to the release Monday of the names of 51 separate projects throughout the region from 23 different development groups that responded to a joint request from Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island.........One plan from SunEdison is a massive, 600-megawatt wind farm called King Pine. Another involves two projects from EDP Renewables, Number Nine Wind Farm and Horse Mountain, that together would add up to 650 megawatts.........“This will turn Maine into a wind…

Were Ex-Maine Gov Baldacci's (now quietly Vice Chair of Avangrid, Iberdrola's wind division) and Iberdrola's Smart Meters Built to Support Wind Power Expansion in Maine?

In December 2015, ex-Governor John Baldacci, architect of the wind power virus in Maine, became Vice Chairman of Avangrid, Iberdrola's wind power division. Not a single word on this has been reported by the media.

Aside from the $1.4 billion ratepayer funded MPRP transmission buildout handed to Iberdrola by Governor Baldacci and his henchmen, there was also the extremely high priced smart meter program which Iberdrola got to build. Both of these were put in place for the…

What's it going to take for Mainers to rebel?

How about taking a step back and simply looking at how our government has crushed us. For example, for starters and in no particular order:

1. The Maine senate president Justin Alfond is caught red handed conspiring with the wind industry to pass the laws they want. It is documented by the Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting.

2. Former Governor (and now US Senator) Angus King…

Blitzkrieg in Maine - Could Triple the Number of Statewide Turbines Overnight and Then Some

This is a full assault that would forever change Maine. The wind law must be changed and local ordinances must be passed if Maine is not going to be totally raped on our watch.

If You Don't Mind Being Raped and Robbed Mainers - Just Ignore This

If you think it's OK for Iberdrola, ex-Gov Baldacci's new employer and the second largest wind company in the U.S., to be able to get the law changed so it can start building wind projects throughout Maine to feast on U.S. taxpayer dollars while holding up ratepayers, then pay no attention to this week's EUT meetings. No need to heed what the EUT does if you are OK with the planned explosion of wind projects throughout the entire state.

Several bills are scheduled for work…

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/
