Maine Wind Resistance Movement May Have Reached the Turning Point

"You look at these horrible wind mills that are destroying every environment; they're destroying areas, they're destroying neighborhoods; they're killing all the birds; the windmills are the worst of all. And we're backing all of this garbage that doesn't work and it's really destructive.

     - Citizen Donald Trump

The left is synonymous with renewable energy and supports a plethora of environmental front groups which push for wind power.

Although the Center for Responsive Politics operates OpenSecrets.org,and they claim to be non-partisan I detect a decided tilt towards the D's (in favorable light) ,though to their credit they post all the donation information they can get from the FEC and states.It is a very useful website,and from there you can begin searching the entities or persons contributing,either thru non-profit information aggregators such as Guidestar or Charity Navigator,and then thru various states that have online reporting compiled from their Ethics Commission re: funds donated to both politicians and to groups pushing ballot initiatives etc 

Yes,there is corruption on both sides,though I'd bet a cup of coffee that one party has a decided advantage in deceptive organizations and funding efforts to manipulate the public thru the ballot box or regulations.

 I'd love to see a more illuminated money trail - particularly with the NGO's. There is so much to piece together. Some of that has been started at the website called Discover the Networks. This site focuses on the left. But the other side has their own dubious networks too. I believe that President-Elect Trump is aware that corruption comes from both sides and that the bottom of a drained swamp will expose both parties. The "Deep State" is deep.

I see that DE Shaw put $4,660,000 in contributions to PACS in the 2016 cycle,wonder how many PACS of the recipient group were getting that money out to schmooze their way into Maine towns?

Well, we know Trump didn't make these negative and politically incorrect comments about wind mills to get votes.  Let's see what happens next.

Companies Weigh Impact of Donald Trump's Win - from the WSJ

 Harold Hamm, Mr. Trump’s chief adviser on energy issues, said subsidies for renewable energy like solar and wind, and credits for electric cars, should be eliminated. “None of it should be subsidized, none of it,” Mr. Hamm said Wednesday. “If it makes it in the market, fine.”

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/
