still plan on coming to Dixfield Thursday?  A B&B in Andover will provide room and breakfast if you guys do not want to drive back that night.  My brother's house is right in Dixfield and we will have extra beds that night.  May be air mattreses but still comfortable.   Otherwise, get in touch and let us hope we can sink some sense into the DEP that not is all well with these big turbines coming to our mountains.   418-4404

Alexander Glad to know you're keeping tabs on the offshore wind efforts  As the University’s own researchers nervously acknowledge in their new report, there are ecological complications that were not being considered by DeepCwind until very recently. And the funding feds at the Dept of energy aren't all that thrilled either.

as before, if you can come to Dixfield March 10 for a Public Hearing with DEP on Saddleback wind project.\; we will feed you and pay for your gas  (If it is an F-150 you drive we will scrape more money up. )  Just kidding'

I know you know what we are fighting.  We need alternatives to the grid.  Mainers are essentially independent .  We need engineers as you and Jim Labreque to keep experimenting and inventing.


Come see the show.

Alexander, welcome  to  the  Citizens  Task  Force on Wind Power,  an  organization that  was  born in November 2009  out  of  desperation when we  realized  what  was  about  to  happen  to  Maine if  Governor  Baldacci, and a  misguided  DEP, LURC and MCDC had  their way .

We have analyzed  every  angle  on  wind power, the medical, economic, technological, environmental and political. We have knocked  on the doors of every  state agency, only to be  met  with  arrogance, rejection, mockery and obfuscation - pretty  much what you  described  in  your  oped.


But times are changing and we are gaining momentum and  we  need  all the  brains and common sense  we  can  get.   That is  why  we  are  proud  to  welcome you to our  organization.  Please invite your friends to join us.

Call me or Steve Thurston if you have any question about the organization.   We hope you will consider testifying at legislative committee hearings this spring as legislation we have sponsored is considered.   864  5423

Monique  Aniel, Co-chair  CTFWP

Good going and welcome to the Task Force. Jim LaB has told me much about you and all of it is favorable. I certainly enjoyed your letter to Campus. You have committed a real public service.

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT


(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 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?" 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.”

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.
