Over the years, Jonathan Carter and I have had some widely differing opinions, but, this time, he has nailed it. First Wind and all the other alternative energy promoters have sold the people of Maine a bill of goods with a huge price tag.
Unless the plug is pulled — literally — we are facing exorbitant costs on energy, an ugly landscape, neighbors who lose health and happiness just because they live close to the turbines, and a severe loss of wildlife — migratory birds and others like eagles, lobsters and fish of all kinds. And all to what end?
The biggest con job of the whole climate change movement is that man is responsible for global warming. As a scientist who has taken the time to study more than a mere 125 to 150 years worth of temperature records, I believe Mother Nature has much more to do with it than mankind.
Can anyone explain how the Earth was so much warmer 1,100 years ago, when there were no coal-fired power plants or SUVs spewing out “greenhouse gasses”? That’s when the Vikings named a lush, verdant island “Greenland.” Or can anyone figure out a way to put Maine under a two-mile-thick sheet of ice, like it was only 8,000 years ago? Man is too puny to do any of this.
