Anti Wind ads hit Portland Press Herald

Saving Maine's ad campaign has expanded to the Portland Press Herald, with two ads on different pages in the National section.  The ads which started today are this one here and, two pages later, the "Saudi Arabia of Wind" ad that I posted a few days ago that had run in the "Forecaster".

The significance of this ad campaign cannot be understated.  CTFWP, in cooperation with Friends of Maine's Mountains has run ads before and we know they have impact.  Particularly important are Saving Maine's ads in The Forecaster and Portland Press Herald because we are reaching the people who promote wind power because they are not affected or threatened by these huge, ugly, environmentally damaging and health impacting turbines.  "Out of sight/out of mind" is the thinking of people who want to be trendy and be "green" by supporting the wind power scam.

We can turn around the support base of wind power in southern Maine and gain the support of our summer visitors who cherish beautiful Maine.  Please help to support Saving Maine's advertising campaign.  Go to and donate!

Excellent ad!  Thank you,!  Maybe these ads will shame the media into covering industrial wind more objectively.

Providence, RI makes the list of the nation's windiest cities. First Wind's home market of Boston comes in number one. So why build the 500' tall monstrosities in far less windy Maine?

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 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?" 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.”

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.
