Now the loonys are advocating using Wind to bring in more Refugees . . . And comparing us to Iowa.... Geeze!

This writer thinks we should be more like her home state of Iowa.  Anybody out there think Maine is like Iowa? Anybody you know goes to Iowa for vacation?  Anybody here think we need more unemployed refugees?  How about jobs using wind and solar to provide them?  

This is nothing more than lunacy from those that brought Maine into the "Renewable Age".  The media at PPH and BDN just don't get it.  They didn't see, apparently, what happened yesterday.…

For third straight time, Earth sets hottest year record

The Boston Globe is beating the climate change drum again with new readings saying the Earth has set a new record for warming and this is the third year in a row.  I have a few questions about this though, like what happened to the temperatures of the 1930's which were significantly higher than the ones today, and what about the flat lining of the temperatures of the last 18 years?  And what happened to the Medieval warming Period? And what about 1997?  All these were a lot higher than this…

DOE Annual Energy Outlook projects doubling of wind energy

BOY!  WOULD I LIKE TO GET SOME OF THE STUFF THESE GUYS MUST BE SMOKING! I have never read so many out and out lies from the DOE/AWEA.  This is the biggest puff piece I think I have ever seen.  After reading it I can see turbines in everyone's back yard.  They are going to be able to supply 12% of the US energy grid by 2023.  I don't think they are at 4% yet.  When you get into the analysis, they do hedge a little, A LOT, on the cost of wind compared to fossil fuels.  Their analysis pegs gas…

Assessing recent warming using instrumentally homogeneous sea surface temperature records

Boy!  Here is a challenging article for you to read.  I read it, with some difficulty, and still don't know exactly what it says.  It tells about four different ways they take sea water temperatures and the variations they have. In the past most of the sea water temps were taken by ships using buckets, or water taken through water intakes in a kind of random sampling method.  In the last ten years or so, floating, drifting buoys have been used, and now also satellites have been added.  There…

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.
