Hucksters in the Hamptons - Hundreds Mobilize Against D.E. Shaw Deepwater Cable

The five-turbine Block Island Wind Farm to the island had become exposed in shallow water. In remarks to that newspaper, Jeffrey Grybowski, Deepwater Wind’s chief executive officer, cited “more sand movement than had been anticipated.”

The beach “is already prone to erosion” and “will be forever altered by a for-profit (hedge fund-owned) company,” it adds. The D.E. Shaw group, an investment and technology development firm, is Deepwater Wind’s principal owner........................................

What they haven't tested for is the resonant sound emitted by the wind turbine blades as it effects humans and land animals, they need to test for this on sea creatures also! As with the blight of the mountains moves to the sea! Testing needs to be done on the effects of these mountain top turbines on the effects of that sound on wildlife, as in does it drive wildlife away from their habitats as I suspect, or not. And it needs to be an independent study not one done by the failing wind industry!

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT (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  http://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?"  http://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.” http://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.
