How big a deal was Congress extending the renewable energy tax credits? A very, very big deal.

How big a deal was Congress extending the renewable energy tax credits? A VERY VERY BIG DEAL!!!!

Again we got screwed by Harry Reid when he said the whole deal would fall through for the release of oil sales abroad if the PTC and ITC were not extended to drive renewable energy.  So we take it on the chin for a phony scam promoting wind and solar for probably another decade…

Today Was A Big Day in Augusta. Bids were due for new projects in Maine for Mass, Conn and RI.

Why Do We Have To Be The Industrial Center For New England???

The southern New England states are making deal to desecrate more of our hills and mountains with wind turbines and build transmission lines to get the power there.  The plan calls for the builders to send the bill to those southern states, but we all know if 1 kw of…

A New Monkey Wrench That May Slow Down The Wind Industry.

Maine Senate president aims to cap electric rates

Though the cap rate is kinda high at 10 cents per kwh, it is a start!  Now if they can just get the subsidies reduced so the windies can't make any money, we will be rid of the scam artists defacing our mountaintops with industrial machinery.  Let's get to our legislators and push the vote for LD 1339.  …

Excellent Scientific Explanation by MIT Scientist as to Why We should NOT Embrace Wind.

The way the wind blows in New Hampshire  

Fred Ward, an MIT trained PhD from MIT, discusses why wind power in New Hampshire will not work.  The same arguments pertain to Maine, Vermont and anywhere else wind towers would be built.  It is all so simply scientific and factual.  Why can't…

Truth About the Costs of Renewables

Federally imposed renewables come at a cost

Though the EPA tries to spin the advantages of renewables and the dubious fact that it will be cheaper for the consumer, this author exposes the real truth about what this CO2 bill means for us. …

What If?

This is a post I made a few years ago.  It seems it needs to be addressed again with all the AGW decisions that have been made by some pretty dubious scientists and some very political non-scientists.

I have a few questions for the AGW alarmists that are really puzzling. 

The IPCC has based all their science on a computer model comparing average global temperatures since the turn of the last century (100 years +).…

2016 Will Be The Big Push Year For Wind

As the subsidies drop each year from 2016 to 2020, this will be the big push year for wind.  With the new UT bill, we have to close as many mountaintops and wilderness areas as possible to throw a monkeywrench into the plans of the wind industry.  The more fights they have to respond to, the fewer sites will be approved until we can get this whole "Renewable" Energy scam thrown out.…

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.
