The precise boundaries of the northeastern megalopolis vary slightly by information source. At a minimum, it stretches from Boston to Washington, DC and some sources have it stretching as far north as Brunswick, ME.

A picture being worth 1,000 words, the U.S. Census choropleth map below, with each white dot representing population of 7.500 as of 2010, tells a pretty good story of where the country's population is. Note the extraordinary population just south of Maine.  This juxtaposition of strikingly different population densities is a part of the reason we're known as "Vacationland". 

Give Maine your tired of urban life, your poor of natural environment, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free and Maine will give you respite. That is the promise of Vacationland. 

Do our representatives in Augusta really want to infest our incredible mountains, ridges, hilltops, forests, farmlands, seacoast and islands with giant out of place industrial wind installations and requisite transmission gashes all so that a small handful of super wealthy insiders in distant places can become yet wealthier at the expense of Mainers and our visitors who so faithfully depend on Maine being Maine? So far, the answer seems to be yes.


Note that because one white dot represents 7,500 people, it means that many of the white dots could represent far, far more. Considering this, the  abovemap likely does not tell the full story as to the the extent of population difference between Maine and its neighbors.

Compare the last map in the posting to the new LUPC proposed Plans for Commerical (Gold Zone) 

Also, compare with the (Gold Zones) and Conservation Lands superimposed.

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT (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 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?" 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.”

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.
