Pete Didisheim at NRCM is busy today trying the spin of calling anti-windmill activists supporters of mountaintop mining, heartlessly willing to let Appalachian children suffer so long as their Maine views are not marred.
Asked for a response by the BDN's Abigail Curtis, I noted that mountaintop removal for the profit of energy companies is as bad an idea here as in West Virginia. Two wrongs don['t make a right.
Destruction of high quality scenic resources of either place harms the ecology, local property owners, local health. The coal miners might be more explosive, but the Mainer mountain removers never go away, they just keep spinning and spinning.
Dno't know when she'll publish the piece; probably the friday edition.
