Eternal Vigilance is needed. The thieves and self serving politicians of both parties still see free money to made by wind scamming. The environment is never the concern of these scoundrels, taking your money is.

Hinck was beaten in the election by Pious Ali. Poor Pious Jon.

Portland-based green lefties are licking their wounds. Jon Hinck, former Co-Chair of the Joint Committee for Energy, Utilities and Technology (EUT), Jon Hinck, suppressor of public opinion critical of wind energy, Jon Hinck, husband of wind attorney Juliet Browne, lost his City Council position.

We need an investigation of so many things now which heretofore could not be effectively challenged. Start with the media's rigging of the polls. Ignore the "narrative" that they blew it with their methodology. Not a chance, in my opinion. It was all intentional but it just didn't work. Time, with clear head, to get to the bottom of HOW money and bad actors such as George Soros (but many, many others including traitors within) had infiltrated our system and corrupted the media, environmental groups and so many others. Follow the money, drain the swamp, stay more vigilant than ever and never flinch when doing the right thing. God Bless America.

Might Trump/Pence mean an end to the Wind issue??? .............. I, for one, am banking on it!

Please remember where most of the wind developers came from . . . . Primarily one party.  They were the elite taking the "Corporate Welfare" based on their scare tactics about "Global Climate Change" being the greatest threat to our planet.  They are the ones who created "Science" to promote a never ending stream of taxes and fees to put in their pockets and steal from the ratepayer and taxpayer. The facts of their science experiments don't meet the smell test and the results of their findings won't support their funding any longer.  Now maybe we can put our future funds into projects that meet the expectations of the problem, good, clean affordable energy that does no harm.

The stock market last night fell in Futures trading over 800 points. To me that may be a sign that corporate America sees that Trumps future tax cuts will put an end to some of the needless corporate welfare of incentives. Now begins the shift of restructuring their investments as the free money returns may no longer exist. As a former investor in a Green (through recycling) industry I would be in a panic mode to think over 80% of the value of my investment could vanish.

It seems by news through the BDN that most of Maine's Wind Zones have voted Republican. Now to those that support the destruction of Maine's Land (their resort getaways within Nature) we must look at both sides of the equation. Dems that believe in Green Energy, and those Rep corporations that reap the rewards both in our tax dollars which rob the working person and the rates paid by the consumers. A slower transition, with thought and care for our lands and environment must be had, with self supporting industry based on investor financing due to a belief of product must be the path. A Balance where conserving energy must precede the need. As many Dems believe in Greener Energy, they fall short on protecting the land, which is another outcry in Maine. We call for jobs, with little tangable  resources remaining in Maine, however we fail to recognize our vast tourist quality of place driven markets. Preservation of Maine's vast wilderness areas and beauty is key, not industrialization by global forces but relaxation from those pressures.

Yesterdays vote was decisive with a statement that we need to protect this nation from an outside influence and some lead by a self elevation to a global stage while misguiding the voices of reason of others. We can and should use our voices to enrich ourselves with wisdom from the past and though hardships may be endured we know in our minds at days end we have decided to help by not destroying our lands.

Having a Job, creates a sense of purpose and a feeling of being needed. Having a handout creates a feeling of Just existing, and a sit and wait until needed. This election has shown that the Rich Elite and the impoverished voted together for the most part across this nation. The Elite needing the vote, and the impoverished needing the handouts, that never provide a Hand UP.

Commercial Wind is a Corporate Hand OUT, to whom. Surely not the poor, but the wealthy. Surely not to this nation, but to other nations.

Make Maine prosperous by keeping outsiders out of Maine politics, tell us what you need of us, and let us figure out what we can and are willing to provide should you NOT be able to do for yourselves after using your last resources and having conserved to the breaking point.

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.
