Maine Trust for Public Land 50% Manned by SunEdison Employees or Former Employees

When the wind industry moves into a state it stacks the deck in its favor as best it can. Some of the groups it invariably tries to win over, whatever the costs, are government officials and environmental groups.

If it can, it may attempt to become part of the very environmental groups it will later go to for seals of approval of its earth scarring, wildlife killing, health damaging and citizen rights crushing wind projects.

It would appear that at least two current employees of SunEdison (formerly First Wind) are on the Maine Advisory Board of the Trust For Public Land:

- Angus S. King III

- David Wilby

Neil Keily, formerly of First Wind, is on the board as well, meaning 50% of this outfit's board is current or former SunEdison/First Wind.

I was so much happier when I was ignorant.

SUNE is handing $'s to organizations they can control.

I think if you look around you will find a lot of this type of activity going on behind the scenes, or past ties, with some future hopefuls. I.E. The proposed East West Corridor speared by Peter Vigue, stating that it would be funded by investors, all the while he was / is seated on the board of TD Bank Canada. This along with the fact that TD Bank was investing into the Tar Sands ("Oil Sands") which also tied with the needs of the Irving Oil needs.  If you dig deep enough you will probably find a lot of interbreeding of these plagues on society, from the lowest most innocent appearing organization to the very top of the corporations that seek to destroy.

Correct - Hence the "gift" in the FMM Bingham Deal!  How could anyone who seriously opposes wind sell out so badly?

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/

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.
