If You Don't Know Moosehead---View This Video. Save Moosehead from the Wind Power Scourge!

Moosehead Lake is simply astounding, truly a natural treasure. The iconic Mt. Kineo rises dramatically from the vast lake. The view from the top encompasses the blue water surrounded by verdant forest and the ancient Appalachian Mountains. Enjoy the vistas in this video, then envision the lake encircled with 50 story wind turbines on every available ridge. Please speak out against the destruction of this unique region that deserves national park status, not industrial wasteland status!

Another source states that Kineo is rhyolite rock, derived from Volcanic activity. Thus this area's mountains could be the ancient rim of one of Maine's largest Caldera, a feature usually formed by the collapse of land, following a volcanic eruption. Moosehead Lake having formed as a result of the collapse. Worthy of a Historic significance? Possibly an answer to the prevention of over development?

Moosehead - Truly Majestic - It is such a crime to even think of a turbine nearby!!

Kineo, is (other than fractures from weathering) a single Rock. More (about 2/3) of it is below the surface than above. It is the largest piece of Hornblend stone on Earth. Fragments of this stone were used as arrowheads due to the sharpness and was traded as a commodity to regions west of the Mississippi into the Plains states. The Kineo House / Resort, now gone, has a unique history of it's own.

I believe Luke Muzzey of Plum Creek is one of the promoters of development in the area. Or was. He is now busy trying to do Plum Creek's deceptive bidding in Somerset county.

Moosehead, one of the largest natural lakes east of the Mississippi, has it's own tide of 4 inches. The mountains that surround it suggest that they may be the remains of a rim of a long ago massive volcano or meteor strike. It has been known to have had whirlpool vortexes as openings below drained water into the cavities.

I climbed it about 15 years ago.  It was spectacular!  I can only imagine what 500 foot spinning blades and flashing lights would do to it.  Criminal.

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/
