Response to Maine Audubon study condemning Maine to be a Turbine Plantation

I wrote this and posted it in response to a letter to the editor from a known wind power shill:

I was at the Maine Audubon meeting where this sham study was presented and I have read it.  It is so poorly researched that it never should have been published.  Other than saying, in order to appease the AMC, that elevations above 2700 feet are not good sites for wind power development, the reports essentially sacrifices the entire rest of the the great state of Maine's  "expedited wind…

Letter to Maine Audubon from James Lutz

Mr. Lutz had difficulty posting, so asked that we post this heart-felt letter to Maine Audubon for him.

Dear Friends;

I have long been a supporter of the Audubon Society, admiring your policies on saving our environment and our birds.  I have a camp on a Maine lake that only recently (in the last 15 years) has had several pairs of our most beautiful National Icon, The Bald…

Levelized Cost of Wind Power is $151/MWh

We have recently been bombarded by supporters of wind power saying that the cost of wind generated electricity is at or near parity with conventional generation.  As usual, the zealots have found ways to twist information and conveniently ignore information in the perpetually desperate scheme to push acceptance of wind power.  Willem Post is a brilliant analyst with great credentials.  His conclusion: the total levelized cost* of wind energy averages $151/MWh…

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.
