Oh No! The Seas Are Falling The Seas Are Falling!!! Despite Climate Alarmism, Global Sea Levels Fell Last Year

Obama was right when he told us he would stop the seas from rising during his first campaign. In spite of the fact that he failed to get the CO2 levels from continuing to rise and the world temperatures were level for his whole administration (The Pause), sea levels actually fell for the last two years. ??? Does any of this fit the IPCC or Globalst narrative?

NASA and satellites have just put a stick in the religious alarmism that is "Climate Change."  It's worth a read. AlGore's new…

From Plymouth, MA . . . Emera Officially Plans To Build Subsea Line to Plymouth.

Plymouth is celebrating a bid form CMP/Emera to run a line bringing 1,000 MW of Canadian wind and hydro power to Massachusetts using the connection at what will soon be the retired Pilgrim Nuclear plant. Pilgrim could probably go on for another 20 years, but they have experienced a few problems over the last several years, not major ones, and then there is always the issue of spent fuel rods. This beats the…

Offshore wind energy’s future is major farms, not failed A.C project

From Our View in NJ, the people have spoken and told the wind farm planned off the coast of Atlantic City that a rate of 23¢ Kwh is not acceptable. Dong Energy operating in Europe seems to think they can deliver for under 10¢ with a massive offshore development and that will be the future. The problem is though, that the components are all from overseas and…

Tragic yet Kinda Funny: GreenFail: Taxpayers Foot $107K Bill for Wind Turbines That Don’t Work

The State of Washington is wasting more of the taxpayers money. In an effort to make a shoreside park more inviting to tourists, they chose the most RIDICULOUS draw they could. They installed three giant wind turbines that produce no power to speak of at great expense. Wait till they go to tear them down in a few years. LOL…

The Totalitarianism of the Environmentalists

For the past several years I have been proposing a very skeptical view of "Climate Science" as espoused by the IPCC, the Obama Administration, The EPA, The Democrats, the AEI, NOAA, NASA, and an alphabet list of agencies that have taken up the cloak. NOTICE:  All those in this list are GOVERNMENT CONTROLLED agencies, all with an agenda. Even the leaders at the IPCC have said point blank that the whole…

EPA proposal could impact local ethanol, biodiesel production

While this article does not exactly relate to our plight with industrial wind in Maine, I think it is indicative of the direction this administration is taking with regards to energy. The health bill got a "Cornhusker Bailout or Kickback" when it was passed, but they have been getting BILLIONS of dollars to produce corn for making ethanol to put into gasoline. In fact it is estimated that between the time it…

100 percent renewable energy: 100 percent possible, 100 percent happening.

From Environment Maine and Rob Sargent come this unbelievably lunacy driven rant about how Wind and solar can take over the total energy needs of our country. It's hard to believe these people really exist. The "facts" he throws around about how polluted our cities are and how the "potential" for utility scale solar especially is so great that we would be able to provide 100 times the energy we now…

Global Warming Study Canceled After Humiliating Discovery

An expedition designed to gather evidence of global warming and “climate change” in the Arctic was canceled last month after a humiliating discovery was made: There was so much ice in the Arctic that the icebreaker it was going to use was needed elsewhere.

How positively ironic. The trip had been planned just…

Could an energy boom save Trump and the GOP in 2018? YOU BET IT CAN!

Our government (Obama) spent the last eight years denying our country has energy superiority in the world and trying to make sure we did everything to destroy it. Remember this quote? “Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.” 

Fracking became a…

More of Our Money to the Elite!

Well it seems that Tesla has a dilemma. The $7,500 Production Tax Credit for those buying Tesla vehicles starts to expire when the manufacturing numbers reach 200,000 for any manufacturers. Doesn't sound like a problem since they are only STARTING to make the Model 3 this Friday, and will have 30 by the end of the month, another 100 by the end of August and 1,500 by the end of September. They do believe they will hit the 200,000 mark in the middle of next year counting ALL the models they…

Wind In Maine: Facts and Fiction

Our friend Jeremy Paine has come out with the latest PDF on what wind did in Maine last year. Of course the numbers are in nameplate levels, and the rest of the numbers probably bear close scrutiny. 

One of the savings they touted was the lack of use of WATER! That's right WATER as in hydro power. ????? Does that seem a little questionable? Last time I looked at a dam that was making electricity using WATER, it was coming out the other side the same as it went in. Maybe they meant the…

Sure am Glad We Are Out From Under The UN Thumb

The march toward a new world order where we would be controlled by the UN has come to an end and NOTHING makes me happier. One of the nations that is in the EU, however, Malta, is faced with stiff penalties if they don't meet their goals for solar power. They are a very small island that has a limited amount of land available for renewable energy. They are VERY sunny, however they are also the densest…

Upstate NY residents are Fighting The Same Battle We Are: Two divergently different LTE's

Residents of Hopkinton, NY are facing the same antagonists we here in Maine are facing. A letter to the editor in their local paper and a reply to it are very interesting to read. I'm not sure where all the PRO facts came from, but the answer to it was spot on.

The first letter:…

Our Rate Subsidies and Tax Sucking Policies At Work: Electricity market: Pricing change can mean free power

About eight years ago ISO NE developed a scheme to allow a few large customers to buy their power directly from the grid based on prevailing rates on an hour by hour basis. During periods of low usage in Spring and Fall, these customers can "buy" power at $0 or even get a credit. This is made possible because ISO NE is MANDATED to energy from wind and solar generators and ask the reliable base load producers to reduce their input. At that point, the wind and solar…

As Beijing Joins Climate Fight, Chinese Companies Build Coal Plants

We hear from the trolls in the comment sections of the PPH, BDN and other papers all the time about how China is beating us now by cancelling new coal plants. The number thrown around is between 100 and 108 cancellations. But a pretty reliable source, at least with the leftists, The New York Times, (All The News That Fits The Print) is saying that that information is inaccurate . . . . in fact REAL inaccurate. While they may have mothballed 108, they are currently building or have in the…

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/
