Governor Mills Statement Honoring Earth Day

Governor Mills Statement Honoring Earth Day

April 22, 2019

Governor Janet Mills issued the following statement in recognition of Earth Day:

“Maine’s natural resources are a cornerstone of our heritage and our economy. Preserving them is vital to our public health and, in a sense, to the survival of our communities. Protecting these precious resources is not some partisan rallying cry, but a responsibility that all of us share and a recognition that the movement toward a clean environment has been led by Maine Republicans like Harry Richardson, Sherry Huber, Joe Sewall and Senator Bill Cohen, as well as Maine Democrats like Ted Kofman, Linda McKee, Senators Ed Muskie and George Mitchell. Maine people have always led the way in the pursuit of clean air, clean water and uncontaminated soils.”

“Today, on Earth Day, we recommit ourselves to that noble goal with more urgency than ever before as climate change takes its toll on our state and our country every day. I pledge that my Administration will work to prevent and mitigate climate change at every turn, helping communities become resilient to those changes already underway and embracing clean energy opportunities to create jobs and wean our state off fossil fuels. We will lead in this effort in order to ensure that our children and grandchildren will enjoy, as we do, Maine’s unsurpassed bounty and beauty.”

Governor Mills also proclaimed April 22, 2019 as Earth Day in Maine and encouraged “all citizens in our state to participate in programs and activities that will protect our environment and contribute to a healthy, sustainable future.” A copy of the proclamation is attached.

OR better still:

WHEREAS climate change is one of the biggest frauds ever perpetrated on mankind by government and the media designed to transfer wealth from the United States to poor nations, with large amounts of this wealth ending up in the pockets of globalist con-artists, both foreign and domestic, and

"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.
