Shaping the laws to their advantage with zero regard for Mainers

As Mainers are kept busy simply trying to keep their heads above water, manipulators in Massachusetts quietly work their plans to grow wildly rich at our expense. The game is truly rigged and none of this happens without unrelenting help from Maine's own wind & transmission cabal consisting of Maine legislators, lobbyists, lawyers, regulators, so called environmental groups and media.

Excerpt:

Throughout the fall, New England Power Pool (NEPOOL), the regional congress of electricity market participants, will engage on a consultative process seeking to reach an agreement among market participants on the changes to the market that will deliver the carbon reductions sought by New England states. This effort was initiated in response to concerns about the proper functioning of energy markets triggered by the recently passed legislation in Massachusetts and the Regional Clean Energy RFP.

Why has there never been a single hearing pertaining to the fraudulent wind energy research that has been produced? This highly organized rigging process has produced bogus research for several decades.

Here are a few examples of this wind industry fraud and deception made legal by rigging laws  during Bill Clinton's corrupt administration.................                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         A recent report from Purdue and the USGS made national news stating that birds from as far as 100 miles away are getting caught in turbine blades. The insanity of this so called news is that the Interior Department (USGS and USFWS) has known this for at least 20 years. It has been no secret, except to the public that the mortality footprint of all wind turbines extends out thousands of miles due to the dispersal and migration patterns of many species. A perfect example of all this took place in Jun 2013 with an endangered White-throated Needletail – the world’s fastest flying bird. This fabulous bird had traveled thousands miles only to be killed by a turbine while hardcore birdwatchers in the UK watched in horror.
                                                                                                                                                              If access had been given to ethical scientists, it would have been proven 15-20 years ago that golden eagles from thousands of miles away in Alaska’s northern Brooks range, were being killed by wind turbines in the lower 48 states. But because of fraud, collusion, and corruption, credible scientific research like this that has been deliberately avoided for decades by the Interior Department.
                                                                                                                                                           Another USGS study from 2015 is embellishing the golden eagle population in a 2000 square mile area around Altamont Wind Resource Area by over 10 times. This is being done to hide the terrible mortality impacts taking place from turbines. This embellishment will also allow this fraudulent industry to build more of their worthless energy inefficient turbines.
                                                                                                                                                               In one year the wind industry slaughters more highly protected avian wildlife than coal or oil ever have. Amazing and disgusting, but true. When doing the mortality calculations for wind energy, no one should rely on or ever believe a word of the industry’s rigged research. Compensations must be made for this industry’s fraudulent research.

In my evaluation of one fake 7 month wind industry study, I believe over 25,000 bat fatalities and about 7800 bird fatalities were concealed. This represents a death rate of 111 birds/MW and 357 bats per/MW or nearly 468 birds and bats killed per MW per year. This was the estimated mortality from just 28 – 2.5 MW turbines in Maryland. Their tiny search areas around the huge turbines amounted to about 68% of a 50 meter distance from towers. These turbines had blades 50 meters in length and search areas and data should have allowed for carcasses and data out to at least 200 meters from the turbines.
                                                                                                                                                              In the mortality report for these turbines it was claimed that searchers systematically searched along predetermined in transects in their search plots. I was told something completely different by an eyewitness (written statement) that he observed on two occasions wind personnel randomly picking up carcasses from around turbines that were at the time also having formal mortality surveys. Two people were seen quickly picking up carcasses from the clear search areas (roads and graveled areas) around the turbines.
                                                                                                                                                            They were seen dumping carcasses in a bucket and driving off to the next turbine. They were not seen with a pen, no hand held devices, a computer, no notebooks, they did nothing but grab bodies and drive off. This eyewitness even talked with them. They were nervous, did not appear to be professional and barely spoke English. He also said he would be willing to testify to what he saw.                                                                                                                                                   This reported activity was likely an organized pre-scan for carcasses ahead of formal searches.
                                                                                                                                                           This observed activity was nothing close to being scientific and took place when formal searches were being conducted on these turbines in Maryland. These turbines are also located in the known habitat of the endangered Indiana bat.I contacted the Interior Department about all this and they never responded back to me.
                                                                                                                                                           About a year ago I had a meeting with a distraught wind tech working in CA. I was shown chopped up eagle images and was told about 5 golden eagles killed in 1 month by his company’s wind turbines. These eagles were not reported. I told the Interior Department USFWS and waited weeks but there was no investigation. Unfortunately this wind tech had unknowingly signed a nondisclosure agreement and did not even know it until I pointed it out in his contract. He wanted to tell this story but the USFWS would not give him immunity. How convenient and how corrupt can you get?
                                                                                                                                                                Besides being able to completely discredit any wind industry mortality study conducted over the last 30 years, I also have excellent evidence of fake searches written up in a mortality study that never even took place. I have told the Interior Department about this as well and again no response.
                                                                                                                                                            These examples are just a tidbit of fraud I have uncovered illustrating the dark character of our world’s fraudulent clean and green industry. An industry not only embellishing their reported energy output, but most importantly hiding millions of wind turbine related bird and bat deaths annually.

Lastly with this information I want people to understand that fraud based solutions being peddled to the masses by corporations, will never solve this world’s problems.

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."

******** 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/
