U.S. Wind Energy Prices Continue to Fall

We currently have five wind turbines installed off the coast of Block Island amounting to our entire "offshore" wind generation. There is a "pipeline" to build out 24,564 MW of new offshore wind across 13 states. While this sounds HUGE, let's try and convert some of these outlandish sounding numbers into something we can all understand.…

Interesting take from an Iowan Newspaper.

Wind power, jobs and the gullible

We often hear wind power is generating lots of jobs for Iowans. How true is this? Wind power is subsidized by taxpayers, because it cannot support itself or the jobs it claims without subsidies in the form of tax credits. This means we, the taxpayers, are paying for the jobs claimed by wind power. Check out the Production Tax Credit (Iowa Code 476C) if in doubt.…

BY CILLIAN ZEAL 

JANUARY 23, 2018 AT 2:42AM

We’ve been told over and over again that wind power is one of the cleanest power sources on earth, all by people like Al Gore. And why wouldn’t it be?…

New Ruling: Solar Incentives Thrown a Curve Ball!

Maine’s top court says appeal of changes to solar incentives must go to lower court

It's time to dry up all incentives for all "renewable energy" sources.

Wind and solar have been around for as much as 40 years producing less than 10% of our national power, and still they want to be propped up by subsidies and tax credits. On a percentage basis, they get 40 times the benefits other producers…

Enviro group: Hydro contract bad for Maine

Whitewater Rafting in the Kennebec Gorge

Susan Ely, from the Natural Resource Council of Maine, is joining the Sierra Club and explains why the 145 mile transmission project is a financial scam by CMP will do nothing to reduce emissions and will destroy much of the wilderness of Maine. It is very clear that CMP is trying to usurp large amounts of cash…

The Sausage-Making of Wind Power vs. the Military

It is clear that the wind lobby has infiltrated every level of our media and government, both state and federal, and are NOT stooping their intrusion into everything that we hold dearly.

Now they are fighting to make our military less safe and for that matter all of us, too. Obama and his administration took off the restrictions for having wind turbines near military bases, airports, and other sensitive sites because…

Power Worth Less Than Zero Spreads as Green Energy Floods the Grid

Wind and solar farms are glutting networks more frequently, prompting a market signal for coal plants to shut off

The disruption of grid energy by renewable energy continues to grow, even in places that have touted wind and solar for years. Prices have been driven to ZERO for producers like coal and gas and even hydro in places where wind and solar are plentiful. The problem is though that wind is expensive…

The Spanish coal power plants public aids system under the European Commission’s scrutiny

Does anyone remember how the Spaniards were put in our face during a time of the buildup of wind energy? How OUR energy company, Iberdrola, a Spanish Company, was making huge developments in wind was our future? And how MISERABLY Iberdrola failed in Spain?

Well thank goodness we don't have anything to do with the EU anymore, or the Paris Accord or fake energy news. Spain is trying to open new coal plants and trying…

Wind power in Europe is madness; offshore wind power is off-the-scale madness.

The scientists in Europe are finally starting to get a leg up.  They are challenging the non-scientific bureaucrats who have been promoting wind and solar and are finally getting the truth out. Germany has realized it, France has resisted it and has the cleanest of all energy in Europe with their nuclear and hydro power, but energy is getting so expensive . . . . and they have no coal left or oil or gas.  They have had to depend on imported gas from Russia at a…

Let's Put an End to the Whole CO2 Driven Climate Change Scam

Climate Change is based on a flaw in the IPCC's beginning premise. It breaks one of the basic laws of physics: 

That Big Idea is impossible because it violates the Equivalence Principle of physics. The Equivalence Principle says if data cannot distinguish between two things, then the two things are identical.

The IPCC claims…

Just Thinking . . . . . .

Anyone watch the Tony Awards last night? I know I didn't and probably you didn't either. But it has been all over the news today. These leaches are part of the Progressive Elite that live off the underclass (you and me) and our stupid politicians, also part of the elite. I honestly have not listened to any "Late Night TV" since Jay Leno left or been to a Movie theater since Butch Cassidy.

One thing I have my Google…

Looks Like November Will Be For Our LIFE!!!!!

Where the Democratic Gubernatorial Candidates Stand on the Issues

Whoever we get for a Dem Candidate in November will be a disaster for us. All support "Renewable" energy though most skirt the wind problem. Almost all call for TOTAL 100% renewable by 2030 -2035. Does anyone know what a mess that will make of our state. All will NOT support a gas pipeline for our heat…

Promises, Promises, Promises = FAIL

The Town of Kittery Looks To Remove Defunct Wind Turbine

In 2008, the beginning of our twisted love affair with wind turbines, The town of Kittery voted to add a new turbine on their landfill and were promised that it would save them $8,000 a year in energy costs. It cost them $185,000 to install it and within a year found that it only produced about 16% of what was promised. They investigated many options for repair…

Our Politics Has Turned Childish and Vindictive

Cicilline Says Offshore Wind is Rebuke to President

Rhode Island has taken a step to broaden their development of offshore wind. My take is to let them make the mistake, as long as it does not hurt us here in Maine.…

MidAmerican will be first to create enough wind energy to cover 100% of consumer use

More Lies and Hype From the Wind Industry.

Iowa is promoting to their population that they will soon be able to produce 100% of their electricity from "Cheap" wind power. Of course we all know that is TOTALLY impossible, and even they know that because in the text of the article they say "Given that wind energy won't always be available to cover demand, MidAmerican said it would still need to rely occasionally…

Another Swamp Dweller Influences Corrupt Politicians

Baker adviser helped energy firms land big Mass. contracts

From the Boston Globe is an article that proves that those making our decisions for us are motivated by cash in their own pockets, not the good of the people. Jim Conroy splits his time between promoting politicians like Charlie Baker and being a promoter for Vineyard Wind LLC and Central Maine Power Co. Isn't that a…

The World Meteorological Organization Predicts 2018 Will Be The WARMEST EVER!!

More non-scientific drivel from the far leftist WMO that says the last 5 years have each one been hotter than those before, and 2018 is going to set new records. We are in big trouble!!!!!!, IF you believe their lies. Our own weather charters, NOAA, fudged their data in 2015 to show a rise right before Obama went rough and signed the Paris Accord without Congressional approval. The good part of that was Trump was able to pull the plug just as…

Maine Cited In Washington Wind Turbine Tourism Study

Energy sprawl threatens Kittitas County tourism

Washington's Governor, Jay Inslee, Commented "As a state, we could learn from Maine’s moratorium on permits for new wind turbines. Gauging effects on rural tourism is an important issue for our state. “We cannot afford to damage our natural assets in ways that would deter visitors from returning,” according to Gov. Paul LePage."…

A Must Read!!!

Recently released by Marc Morano, this is a very easy to read and understand expose' of the weapons that have been leveled at REAL science by the enviros and their leftist, NWO backers. Since all this nonsense started 40 years ago, we have lost our standing in the world and have been caught up in an extraordinary spending of unneeded resources when we have all we need right here at home.

Maine as Third World Country:

CMP Transmission Rate Skyrockets 19.6% Due to Wind Power

 

Click here to read how the Maine ratepayer has been sold down the river by the Angus King cabal.

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT (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  http://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?"  http://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.” http://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.
