The European Model for RENEWABLES is finally giving in to reality. Hooray!!!!

On eve of Paris climate summit, Britain pulls the plug on renewables

While the Wind Industry in this country has looked across the pond to Europe to point out what they are doing right, Europe is finally giving up the fraud of renewable Wind and Solar to power their nations.  Britain is next.

Look closer to home and they are just suing each other - contractors who did the work not being paid, no proper sign-off that the work was complete because LLC was sold just as project plugged in. But the Big Banks get their money no matter how deals like SunEd-FirstWind and its warehouse capitalization go down. We need to be watching public pension funds also, since they have huge amounts of money to invest, or strong pressure to divest, and many are broke.

Policy really should never be about Davey as Energy Minister, or Prince Charlie who says he has been worried about climate change for half to two thirds of his life. Will he give up all those cold castles and vast hunting grounds?

It is not playing in the press, but Trump prevailed finally to protect his Scotland golf resort from wind energy development nearby. Golf courses and casinos do not conserve environment or energy, or serve those of us struggling to survive on what was to be a "middle class" wage or education.

We need the numbers behind this decision. The London Array I remember as a 2010 disappointment for Britain because the "job creation" was all non-domestic Dong. Dong may develop offshore blockade in Massachusetts, though at this point I favor their experience over the mess that inexperienced domestic developers and the state agencies have shown in the northeast.
And maybe we should ask whether Dong is going to be another Pfizer in terms of where corporate taxes are paid.
The cost of electricity has already escalated sharply since "deregulation" was replaced by state-legislated mandates. None of our states have the intrinsic resources unless we want to use a lot of fossil chopping down every tree. And then what?

EXCERPT:

In early 2009 the Socialist government of Spain reduced alternative energy subsidies by 30%.  Calzada continues:

"At that point the whole pyramid collapsed.  They are firing thousands of people.  BP closed down the two largest solar production plants in Europe.  They are firing between 25,000 and 40,000 people...."

"What do we do with all this industry that we have been creating with subsidies that now is collapsing?  The bubble is too big.  We cannot continue pumping enough money.  ...The President of the Renewable Industry in Spain (wrote a column arguing that) ...the only way is finding other countries that will give taxpayers' money away to our industry to take it and continue maintaining these jobs."

That "other country" is the United States of America.

Wonderful news!  Go Brits!

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.
