Today, at Northern Maine Community College (NMCC), Angus King talks up wind power at an event hosted by a group called "Focus the Nation".

When one clicks on their interactive map, one sees that Maine has a renewables goal
of 40% by 2017. Yet if you look at where Maine is now, we are already well beyond that figure:
49.87% RENEWABLES IN THE HERE AND NOW!
Now the reason Angus is there, is to tell the students we are still well shy of this 40% goal because hydro is not considered a renewable. In other words, "kid's, please don't pay any attention to those snowstorms, rainstorms and drops of dew".
What is not renewable is the never ending stream of subsidies that are the lifeblood of self-appointed royalty like Angus King whose dependence on commoners Joe Taxpayer and Jane Ratepayer might be compared to "a vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity", to borrow a quote from a book recently written about Goldman Sachs.
The game is rigged folks. The house always wins. Insiders like King make the rules and then profit immensely by the rules. If we have seen one thing, it is that King cares not a tiny drop for Maine's environment and he will say ANYTHING to wrest money away from Joe and Jane.
The $14 trillion national debt was brought to us by politicians like King. It is not compatible with our nation's survival. It mortgages these very students' futures. That is why subsidies for failed wind power will not be around much longer and why Angus King is leading our youth down a dead end career path by encouraging careers in wind power.
