Nice to see the media assist in leading our kids down the garden path at the same time not a single major newspaper in the state reported that the University of Maine's sole onshore wind turbine was completely destroyed by fire on 4/1/18, almost a year ago. And zero reporting ever since. You don't suppose they'll do a retrospective on the defunct turbine's 10 year anniversary this coming May 15? I know there was no such 10 year (or any) retrospective on the 2008 expedited wind law, perhaps one of the most far reaching land use laws in our history.
Nor did any Maine newspaper report that all six of Maine's land based wind project bids were rejected by the state of Connecticut in December 2018.
2019 Maine State KidWind challenge in Portland
PORTLAND, Maine — Twenty-eight teams competed in the 2019 Maine State KidWind challenge at the Ocean Gateway Building Wednesday. Eighty students, ranging from middle school to high school ages, experimented with turbine designs and analyzed data in front of judges for a chance to compete in nationals.
Goodwin also teaches engineering design at King Middle School in Portland. Goodwin also says he uses wind turbine education to teach his students about climate change, adding that this is a way they can help find a solution and help.
