How a 100-turbine wind farm is about to change Newport County's oceanfront views (Rhode Island)

Zane Wolfang

September 19, 2022

Within five years, Rhode Island’s horizon will be unmistakably altered to any beachgoer, fisherman or waterfront homeowner gazing out to sea, and the coastal Atlantic from Martha’s Vineyard to Long Island will be dotted with wind turbines arranged in orderly grids like trees in an orchard.

They will…

Maine wind training program is struggling to attract students

"I think if you look at the interest in wind, wind power, I think people are still skeptical that that has a bright future," says NMCC President Tim Crowley. The state's changing political landscape, he says, also may have affected interest in the program.

Some industry observers say interest has shifted toward solar. And Jeremy Payne, executive director of the Maine Renewable Energy Association, says…

Wind Scam Artists strategies to destroy "America the Beautiful".
 
This is long, but it is worth scanning all of it. Be sure to download and search for your Reps. and Senators too. Don't forget to share with all.
This shows the backroom dealings of these wind scam artists and our politicians ramming this "Rip Off" unreliable and unproductive wind energy crap down our thro@@t.
 
Don't miss there campaign to save wind jobs that cost the American Taxpayer in excess of $8,000,000 each also, why because it come our of our wallets and purses.
Be sure to check out all their propaganda goals to destroy the Beautiful United States and make each of us pay for this destruction from "Fake Renewable Energy".

Ok lets update Americas status first there are millions of abandoned homes from foreclosure, there is less electricity for lights,furnaces,etc. being used today  so we all can relax with the scare of congesting our grids. There is plenty of current being generated at the moment. So what steps do we take to rid our lands of the dinosaur turbines that this foreign company called first wind first and they are not from New England originally folks. The office in Boston is just a front to be what they thought was going to be action. Obama our fearless leader wants to keep this going,The wasteful spending, allowing the companies to change names as fast as the sun sets,how they do business,How they are awarded these funds I'll never understand because there is in my opinion no practical method in deciding who gets funding for these energy projects. I am disgusted at this administration, If you were working in my company I"d fire you for insubordination, you know your not suppose to use public money for your personal interests. It has to be personal because it surely is not a public interest  Shame on you ----- Got Vision

Thanks for the link to the report. Geeze, these guys say just what industry pays them to say. Wow! The Name Norm Famous reminds me of one of the Lounge Lizards wannabe types. Very interesting to know he is the husband of Marcia Spenser-Famous. I had a sneaking suspicion he was. The name is unusual, if not famous. Heh. Another conflict of interest, ya think?

Investigative reporting.... We need to whip this beast a little better.

Interesting to read Tux Turkel's piece this morning. While his focus was narrowly on noise, and only at Vinalhaven, it surely helped puncture the huge bubble just a bit. More noteworthy than what he wrote was what he did not write.

How he could interview Hanna Pingree and NOT ask her why she withdrew her turbine noise bill is either abject stupidity or laziness. Legislators regularly rush to the statehouse with a new bill whenever a constituent says "there oughtta be a law..."

Could it be that he didn't ask the Speaker of the House (who can get anything she wants to a public hearing) why she doesn't think this is worthy of a bill, or why she isn't raising holy hell over getting a hearing???

It would be one thing if her district was Old Orchard Beach, but these are HER constituents who are under the bus!! Investigative reporting??? Please. One doesn't need to be a political veteran to know that the ties that bind among the Pingrees, Baldaccis, Adamses, and the wind mafia are very tight indeed. Turn a blind eye to a monumental calamity in your state, district, and town why? To repay political favors? Now that's a story that'll sell papers.

Turkel needs to pursue this angle. He also needs to expose the tragic economic realities of this trojan horse that has been wheeled into 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.
