"In the process of rebuilding Maine, we must never compromise the integrity of our environment. It's not only immoral, it's bad economics." - Angus King in the following must see 41 second video:
U.S. Senator Angus King Promotes Book Celebrating Maine Mountains (As in the land features he blasted)
King wrote the foreward to "Enduring Heights". These Maine peaks endure IN SPITE OF mountaintop blasters like King and his enduring blights. His Record Hill wind factory destroyed the tranquility of mountain lake Roxbury Pond and his envisioned Highland wind project would have marred the view of the very high peaks written about in this book. If a mountain were named after King it could be called Mt. Brass.
Note that this book was partially funded by Trans Canada's Kibby Wind TIF. The Kibby wind project has destroyed one of Maine's most hauntingly beautiful places.
