We are urging folks to open this URL and sign the petition to let Anheuser-Busch know what you think of their wind power strategy and the virtue signaling in their upcoming Super Bowl ad.  Thanks!!!!

..." Globally, renewable or "green" power supplies about 3 percent of Ford’s energy needs. Ford uses hydro-power, solar and wind power, landfill gas and waste gases, and other sources to supply some of its global energy needs.    " ...  https://www.reliableplant.com/Read/11570/ford-reduces-manufacturing...

Ford has started its campaign, though subtly displayed in the background of its commercials, for the 2019 line. 

This is STATUS SYMBOL recognition tactics.

They all make this green announcement, though some have their own wind turbines, just to make a glory statement and take a pledge to pay 2-3% more for ONLY the electric driven portion of their businesses. -- Lighting for the most part. The energy-intensive needs are still fossil fuel driven.

..." Total theoratical energy required to melt the scrap and to superheat it to the typical tap temperatures requires around 350 – 370 kWh/t-steel. This energy can be provided by the electric arc, from fossil fuel injection or oxidation of the scrap feedstock. In practice, the energy use is highly dependent on product mix, local material and energy costs and is unique to the specific furnace operation. Factors such as raw material composition, power input rates and operating practices – such as post-combustion, scrap preheating – can greatly influence the balance. Actual electricity use in EAFs are reported to range between 300 – 550 kWh/t, and in 1999 reached an average level of 425 kWh/t. Based on 2005 Figures, IEA estimated that reducing the average electricity consumption from 425 kWh to 350 kWh for every ton of steel produced in EAFs worldwide, 0.1 EJ of energy can be saved annually (IEA, 207. pp. 130-131).

So for example, it takes 4 - 3Mw turbines to produce a tonne of steel operating.

 

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.
