Now come the climate authoritarians’ (We are seeing a pattern)

We’re still battling the coronavirus tyrants. Now come the climate authoritarians.

More than 200 climate scientists — and that’s “scientists” with an eyeball roll — have gathered to put the final touches on an agreement that will take the lessons learning from the coronavirus, meaning the idea that fear sells and sells well, and apply them to the field of environmental regulation.

The headlines have already started the buzz.…

Fight between rival energy companies threatens to delay CMP’s $1 billion energy corridor

CMP parent Avangrid is locked in a bitter dispute with rival NextEra over the upgrading of equipment at the Seabrook nuclear station, without which the 145-mile corridor can’t connect to the New England grid.

By Colin Woodard Staff Writer

A heated dispute between Central Maine Power’s parent company and rival energy giant NextEra is threatening to delay the completion of CMP’s controversial 145-mile transmission corridor.…

Billionaire Space Travel – the Final Frontier of Climate Hypocrisy

“Bezos, please stay up there. Do the world a favor” tweeted Tulsi Gabbard in response to the launch of Blue Origin’s rocket, carrying the Amazon founder and other passengers into space earlier today.

The billionaire space race is accelerating, with Bezos’ trip to space coming in the same month as Virgin Galactic founder Richard Branson’s. Both Virgin Galactic and Blue Origin are competing with SpaceX — another rocket company run by another billionaire, Elon Musk.

Berry Bill Buried - Mills vetoes bill calling for forced buyout of CMP and Versant Power

The governor calls the performance of Maine's electric utilities 'abysmal' but says the bill to form a consumer-owned utility was 'hastily drafted' could create more problems than it solves.

EXCERPTS:

Supporters already have begun laying the groundwork for a separate, statewide referendum on whether to force Central Maine Power and Versant Power to sell their assets to a new Pine Tree Power Co.

The bill’s chief sponsor, Democratic Rep. Seth Berry of…

Mills signs new law that prohibits offshore wind projects in state waters

Three miles is nothing. But why is the setback on inland wind turbines only 1.5 times the height of the turbine, i.e., less than 1,000 feet?

SOME NE STATE GOVERNMENTS PLAY DECEPTIVE GAMES WITH CO2 EMISSIONS PER KILOWATT-HOUR TO HYPE EVs AND HEAT PUMPS

New England states are aiming to reduce CO2 emissions to “fight global warming”. The federal government and each state provide various subsidies to investors to build energy systems that have minimal or no combustion CO2, such as wind, solar, nuclear, hydro, biomass (i.e., wood chip burning), farm methane, etc. Those subsidies enable investors to sell their electricity at lower prices to utilities, that are under statutory obligation to buy the electricity.

Trend is apparent. Mainstream media is controlled.

It may not be a state-run industry but it’s far worse because they’re choosing to quash the truth. What we’ve seen (and conspicuously not seen) with coverage of Russiagate, impeachments, Hunter Biden, Antifa, January 6th riots, elections, and vaccines tells us we’re not facing an incompetent, biased mainstream media industrial complex as many have…

Wildfire threat looms large as Maine’s prolonged drought continues

Unfortunately, when a wind turbine catches fire hundreds of feet above the ground, fire personnel often cannot reach the fire and simply wait for the fire to burn out. That might be adequate on the Great Plains, but what happens in remote and bone dry Maine forests?

Excerpts

Maine’s prolonged drought, now more than 16 months long and impacting the whole state, has exacerbated the threat of wildfires by creating an earlier…

J.D. Vance: Biden’s War on Energy Is a Forced Transfer of Jobs to China

J.D. Vance, Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate seat from Ohio and author of Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis, noted Friday how the Biden administration’s “war on American energy” facilitates the loss of manufacturing jobs to China.

Democrat proposals to further subsidize electric vehicle technology amount to a subsidy for China given the one-party state’s dominance of the production of electric-vehicle batteries, Vance noted on SiriusXM’s Breitbart…

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.
