Conservatives should offer solutions on environment, not ignore it

"Conservatives should offer solutions"


♦───♦♦♦───♦



... Most political issues have not just one solution,

but a whole variety of proposals that could address the problem
at hand. Unfortunately, often one faction is successful in dominating
the conversation about the issue to such an extent that their solutions seem to be the only ones available. This makes their opponents feel trapped, and so rather than offer their own ideas, they deny that something is a problem entirely.

I don't do Facebook, so I sent the guy a message. Not too well worded as I was too miffed.

But had to throw in my 2 cents worth.

My comments added to the article, for what they may be worth.

The ghost of Teddy Roosevelt has surely been pacing the shoreline of Mattawamkeag Lake wanting to know why Land for Maines Future's  shoreline acquisition on Mattawamkeag cared not about the soul of the lake which has now been desecrated by the defunct First Wind. It was where young Roosevelt communed with nature and it is now defiled by confidence men of the present day - some of whom have never set foot in Maine.

First Wind is gone. A ghost itself. Its owners are yet more insanely rich as a result. Does US Congresswoman Chellie Pingree's former (?) husband, S. Donald Sussman, who owned all of the largest newspapers in Maine which cheer leaded the wind developers relentlessly still benefit from his $28 million stake in longtime First Wind owner D.E. Shaw, the stake that created D.E. Shaw. What a cesspool. Our lakes should not have to compete with cesspools and Susspools.

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/

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.
