Delingpole: It cannot be said often enough that virtually the entire environment industry is a fraud

So that’s just three out of the hundreds of environmental scare stories which appear across the world’s media every week – every one of them utter bollocks in almost every detail. And people believe them: of course they do! The mainstream media may be ailing but they are by no means dead. For a significant chunk of the population, they are still the trusted, go-to source for information: after all, you wouldn’t want to be one of those crazies who gets their information from all those partisan news sites and blogs on the internet, would you?

This is a major problem.

It cannot be said often enough that virtually the entire environment industry is a fraud.

All those stories you read about anything from climate change to species extinction to threatened reefs, glaciers and atolls – they may sound superficially plausible because they are delivered with passion and urgency and “expert” testimony in apparently respectable media outlets. But they are like elaborate edifices which look magnificent from a distance only to be revealed, on closer examination, to be crumbling facades riddled with woodworm and dry rot, botched with poor materials and third-rate workmanship.

And rather than allow these cathedrals of lies to collapse – as they should have done long ago – the environmental alarmists have propped them up with a succession of jacks and anchors and wedges and flying buttresses.

Worse, I see few indications that this is about to change because the penalties for lying are non-existent.

Yup!  If people only knew what goes on behind the scenes to hide the truth and deceive the gullible public into thinking they noble goals and objective!  It is all about power, money and other selfish goals. However, some people really think there is good behind it!   They have been totally brainwashed. 

I know that to be true...from my previous life!  

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.
