Maine enviros' attack on the poor a vulnerable and exploitable underbelly

Excerpt from PPH today!

That decision keeps Maine manufacturers from taking full advantage of the gas boom that is lowering energy prices for their competitors in other parts of the country.........................families in Maine need the kind of good-paying manufacturing jobs that come along with lower energy costs.

[OP]

It's interesting that in advocating for Mass to back off from its natural gas blockade of Maine they talk about the relationship between energy prices and manufacturing jobs. But they don't touch the blockade's attack on poor and middle class Mainers.

I suspect that in lending its qualified support to natural gas for Maine, something fought tooth and nail by the PPH's allies in the Maine environmental-wind cabal, it may have steered clear of discussing the attack on the poor and middle class, because the environmental left purports to be on the side of these groups.

The reality is that all of the anti-gas and pro-wind policies represent a laser sighted attack on the poor and middle class. The last thing the environmental left and its sock puppets in the media want to be blamed for is an attack on the poor and middle class as it is fully antithetical to who they claim there are.

If this is true, then it would seem that a very effective criticism of wind could be its direct attack on the poor and middle class, particularly the poor. I don't think the environmental groups would like to be painted with this, so I think it makes sense to shame them as such every opportunity we get.

It seems that in the weeks leading up to Earth Day, (April 22) the enviros step up their letter writing and opinion pieces. We can do the same and I think hammering away on their attack on the poor would get their attention. In large part, the environmental groups have been enjoying a free lunch, courtesy of the wind industry donations, etc. for at least 10 years. Public shaming might make them rethink how "free" it really is.

After having tried to have or join in on a conversation with these Enviro's & my (better known to them) Colleagues in Augusta, one word seems to come to mind.

DEPLORABLE'S

Most of Maine citizens can not afford to contribute, but even if we could, we would be a lesser lifeform to them, thus the greater influence comes from away.

I believe if you review in depth, Maine's Real Financial History with Massachusetts and the other 3 Southern New England States, we have always been treated as a Plantation State. A State where they reap the benefits of the Natural Resources sometimes by suppression of Value/Price Equality.br>
This time they wish to Rape what is left of our Resources (Tourism, Water, Mountains, and what little forest that remains) to the extent that they are willing to deprive Maine Citizens unless we succumb to their demands of more Wind, Solar, Transmission lines, and what they deem as Renewable Forest Energy Sourcing. Forest Product Sources that produce more, pound for pound, CO² than Coal.

What may remain after all Citizens are driven out, are the Elite taking over what little remains of unspoiled lands. Those lands that are not secretly holding 24 foot diameter subterrainian pillars of Concrete where Home foundations cannot be placed.

If memory serves, the great fire of 1825 from Bangor northward still has never fully recovered though some was converted to pasture lands, Barron lands of today due to Wind and Solar clearings and their remains, may never stand a chance at recovery.

We in Maine it seems are not worthy of a decent standard of living, just a few Nancy Pelosi "Crumbs" so that we survive long enough to become the next Servants to the Elitists.


Even Slaves are given just enough to stay alive, so long as they conform.

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."

******** 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.
