Charts: a decade of rapid growth for wind power in Maine

Here was my comment to this absolutely bogus report about wind in Maine.

Statistics! The writer has picked and chosen minuscule data from a government statistical report on energy in the State of Maine. It is possible to make any single month look good for any industry by using statistics. This term was popularized in the United States by Mark Twain (among others), who attributed it to the British Prime…

When We Are Confronted By European Renewable Touters

Europe's Bogus Clean Energy Claims

Very often when we make comments to news articles, we are attacked by environmental whackos that constantly tell us we are falling behind the rest of the world, especially Europe, in developing renewables. Well Europe is not in great shape either, and they have a very dirty little secret they have been hiding regarding "renewables". They are depending on…

AWEA Blog has some really interesting "Fact Check" Lies we should all be aware of.

The AWEA Newsletter is spreading Wind Power propaganda and there are some really interesting articles. They are touting a wind development in Colorado that is going to be able to produce energy at $18.00+ per Mwh and saying that by the time kids born today are turning 21 wind will be the cheapest form of power out there.

Building more wind farms doesn’t make sense

wind turbines

A very poignant article from middle America who went out and did some research into why so many wind turbines were being proposed and built in Iowa. She starts off quoting Warren Buffett when he says wind makes no sense unless there are tax subsidies to write off your profits from other businesses. She goes right to the top of the wind food chain in Iowa, MidAmerica Energy's President, Bill…

Lower corporate tax rates no boon for renewables, analysts find

Analysts are examining the impact the new tax laws will put on all kinds of businesses. While the subsidies were somewhat spared for the foreseeable future, the lower tax rate will make it harder for investors like Warren Buffett to reduce their tax burden by investing in wind and solar. 

This does NOT, however, hurt the electric companies that supply our homes and businesses with power. Every American should be…

Fossil fuels: Don't bury them yet

This recent cold snap may have been a blessing in disguise. By exposing the reality of the fact that wind and solar can not perform the level of energy needed during high demand periods, the greenies in Massachusetts had to turn to coal and oil to supply themselves with energy, pumping dreaded CO2 into the atmosphere at rates previously unheard of. ISO-NE is sounding an alarm. FINALLY! …

More scare tactics from the loony left. Enough is enough!

Alert! Alert!  Political Comment!!!

Jay Inslee, the Governor of Washington, just announced that we only have 59 days to turn the tide of "Global Warming".  The scientist and inventor of the internet wholeheartedly agrees with him. Inslee just announced a plan to raise carbon taxes at the same time. What a coincidence!…

The largest deep-ocean silicic volcanic eruption of the past century

This is a pretty neat article. I wonder how many more of these go off and we don't know about them. I also wonder how much CO2 is generated into the atmosphere. Nature seems to be doing as much as man.

Will Global Warming Freeze Us to Death?? (from BDN)

David Emerson is a professional scientist at the Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences who studies bacteria that live literally between a rock and a hard place. 

But I am a little perplexed by his "scientific" credentials.

Here is what I commented:

Hey Mr. Emerson;



You are a scientist? You study oceans? Have you happened to be on any of the recent voyages in the last decade to study the North and…

New England Liberals Shut Down Coal Power Plants, Now They’re at Risk of Freezing

Officials at ISO-New England, operators of the region’s power grid, said energy demands during the recent arctic weather have placed major pressures on energy generators, forcing power companies to rely more on coal and oil to produce electricity,” the Hartford Courant reported this week.

New England's blind unscientific devotion to…

Spain Scuttles Clean-Energy Subsidies; Promptly Watches The Industry Go Down Like A Sinking Ship

Serious question, greenies: is a nation justified in completely running its economy into the ground, with all of the hardship and heartache that ensues, if it’s all for the sake of instilling the populace with what the government deems necessary environmental virtue?

This article is old, but still tells the story. This is the best hope we have for…

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.
