Just go to the following links, click the arrow in the upper left and turn on your speakers. Mr. LaBrecque, who is Gov LePage's technical adviser on energy, makes some excellent points on energy that are grounded in the real world. For example - how a penny more per kWh here and a penny more per kWh there quickly turns into many, many millions of dollars that can chase companies out of Maine and scare prospect companies away.
Mr. LaBrecque condemns the wind/solar industries for lies and the media for "putting out garbage". He also reprises and adds to his criticism last week of the UMPI wind turbine. Among the other subjects covered are dispatchable vs. intermittent power, deregulation of electricity, hydro power and even Furbish's Lousewort.
Finally, near the end of Part B, Mr. LeBrecque advises that he will be running for the state senate in District 9 - Bangor/Hermon. He cites a number of reasons for his decision, including the need to fix energy and hold the media accountable.
Please have a listen.

From the desk of James LaBrecque
"I’m running on the basis that I am dissatisfied with the legislature, the judicial system and the press when it comes to complying with our constitution, basic laws and looking out for the best interest of Maine people.
I have been an effective advocate for 25 years dealing as mostly a free advocate with issues from child protection, the disabled, energy and the courts, and believe I could now be more effective working behind the closed doors where legislators and lobbyists tend to forget who is really the important party."
