"Other than that, windmills are quite good" - President Trump

TRUMP: "The previous administration, they liked to windmills. If a windmill is within two miles of your house, your house is practically worthless. They make noise, they’re intermittent. They kill your birds. They break down all the time. You have to replace them every 10 years because they wear out, and they cost a fortune and they need subsidy. Other than that, they’re quite good. You don’t want one of those windmills within vision. You hear them, they’re noisy. They’ve got a lot of problems."

Here are his words from the Cincinnati, Ohio rally earlier this month:

  • Our shared Republican agenda is pro worker, pro jobs, pro family, pro growth, and 100% pro American. We’ve eliminated a record number of job killing regulations, giving the average American household $3,000 more to spend every single year.
  • The previous administration tried to shut down American energy and close up, totally, close it up. American clean, beautiful coal. That’s what they did. That didn’t work out too well, but you had a suffer. It didn’t work out well, but had [to] suffer for a long time until I came along. You’re not suffering any longer.
  • The previous administration, they liked … windmills. If a windmill is within two miles of your house, your house is practically worthless. They make noise, they’re intermittent. They kill your birds. They break down all the time. You have to replace them every 10 years because they wear out, and they cost a fortune and they need subsidy. Other than that, they’re quite good.
  • You don’t want one of those windmills within vision. You hear them, they’re noisy. They’ve got a lot of problems.
  • No, we’re going to stay with the great energy that’s powering our businesses, that’s creating so many jobs.
  • And solar, you know what? We’ll live with solar, but solar is peanuts by comparison to what you need. But we’re going to stay the way we have it.
  • We’ve ended the war on American energy and we’re putting our coal miners back to work and our steelworkers back to work, and our auto companies back to work.
  • We’ve learned over the last three years the incredible gold that were sitting on top of in this country. We’re very lucky. We’re now the largest energy producer in the entire world, bigger than Soviet Union, formerly.

Media -DEP Ignoring Ocean Turbine Dangers For Political Agenda

Fishing Concerns Over Marthas' Vineyard 220 Kv Electric Submarine Cable & Wind Turbines Spacing Ignored By Politically Charged Media

The Edgartown Conservation Commission on Martha's Vineyard voted in July to deny the ocean wind turbine application to lay transmission cables that would pass about a mile east of Edgartown. The cables carry 220,000 AC volts of electricity each emitting heat, an electromagnetic field and noise.
Commercial fishermen questioned the adverse effects of the cables at the public hearing last month. In addition, the fishing industry is concerned over the spacing of the turbines and the power towers called Electric Service Platforms larger than an office building in downtown Boston.
The ocean wind company has asked the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection a failed state agency for a Superseding Order of Conditions to overrule the Edgartown Conservation Commission.

The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection is facing Regulatory Capture itself as it has in the past brokered loans on the failed land-based wind turbine projects in spite of health and property rights. MassDEP arranged what Falmouth residents thought was a federal ARRA grant to build their Falmouth Wind II second wind turbine. The money was a PRA, Project Regulatory Agreement, with the state agency.
As a result of the loan MassDEP in the past ten years has never invoked its state regulations against a land-based wind turbine.

MassDEP recently held a conference call between the ocean wind turbine company and the Edgartown Conservation Board announcing the day after the public could listen in on the call by dialing a special number. The media went along with pulling the Wool over the public making the announcement the day after the call -no one heard the call.
MassDEP has no qualified people to determine the heat, noise and electromagnetic field from the electric cables but promises a result right away. The answer was known prior to the question. Questioning again the political agenda of MassDEP and the media. In addition, it may be worth mentioning the corruption on Beacon Hill. The last three Speakers of the House Massachusetts were all involved with corruption. House Speaker Sal DiMasi considered the Father of the Green Communities Act severed eight years in federal prison.
The federal government's Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) delayed its environmental approval over the electric submarine cable and spacing of the wind turbines.

IV.i.ii Impact of Electromagnetic Fields
"Research on the effect of electromagnetic fields (EMF) on a variety of species is ongoing, following concerns regarding the behavioral and ecological impacts of submarine cables associated with offshore WEAs. Some fishes such as elasmobranchs, which include spiny dogfish and most species within the NE Skate Complex, are known to sense EMF, and other fishes including sturgeon may also be affected. "
IV.i.iii Impact of Noise
"Noise during the construction phase (e.g., pile driving) and during the operational phase (i.e., turbine vibration under operating conditions) may alter the behavior and commercially exploitable biomass of fishes in the vicinity of the developed WEAs. Research on fish hearing has been performed for more than 50 years, but large knowledge gaps in the understanding of the relationship between hearing mechanism and sound production, and its relevance to fish behavior persist"

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.
