The mainstream "environmental" group "elitists", many whom have never been north of Bangor, are paid very significant amounts of money to push wind and solar, which includes fighting competitors such as low cost big hydro, Maine commoners be damned. They are also given huge grants and the strings attached to those grants call for advocating for a "clean energy future" and the fight against non-existent manmade global warming. The groups funding their global warming efforts use climate change as a principle around which to organize globally enforced mandates and eventually global government. Gases don't know international borders, so it's an ingenious device to attack national sovereignty and borders. "Take America's standard of living down a few notches" is the mantra. We are the fly in the ointment for them.

Be interesting to know if the Maine Office of Tourism touches on the CMP/Quebec transmission corridor and its impact on the western Maine region. This proposal has a lot of people up in arms, where the wind industry has been able to ride rough shod over our mountains with the encouragement of many who oppose the transmission corridor.  Why is that?  The arguments are basically the same with the exception of the sources of renewable energy.  Wind is weak and intermittent and hydro is powerful and 24/7.  Both are all about serving southern New England's renewable energy mandates.

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/
