Please click on the PDF file below entitled "Maine’s Wind Goals, CO2 and the Forest." The document is intended to put Governor Baldacci's wind goals into perspective.
NRCM has published figures on CO2 emissions avoided by various Maine wind farms. Then, to try and argue that the clearcuts and clearing needed for these complexes, their roads and transmission lines should not be seen as significant, NRCM also provides figures on how many acres of forest would capture the same amount of CO2 as the CO2 emissions avoided by the turbines.
"Maine's Wind Goals, CO2 and the Forest" uses NRCM's own figures to demonstrate that all the envisioned wind farms produce major degradation of our state for wholly minor effect on CO2 reductions.
Think about it NRCM. What are you doing?
