Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg vowed Thursday to stem rising traffic fatalities by imposing a host of fresh restrictions on everyday drivers while boosting those who choose to walk or use bicycles.

To that end he seeks more dedicated bus and bike lanes to get people out of their cars, retimed signals to favor pedestrians, enhanced speed cameras, greater traffic law enforcement and lower speed limits as part of the plan.

Please all read CTFWP member Paul Ackerman's much needed comments

Updated 1/25/22

EXCERPT from Paul Ackerman's comments:

When the inventor of the MRNA technology,Dr.Robert Malone, risks his life** and reputation to call out the completely irresponsible use of the very technology he created to foist these "experimental vaccines" upon mankind, and the suggestion is made that one "...doesn't understand intelligent people thinking the Covid vaccine is a bad thing.." perhaps that reflects a deeply misinformed…

Dr. Malone (mRNA Researcher/Inventor) Gives Memorable Speech at Huge " End The Mandates " Rally in DC Concerning the "Leaky" Vaccination and "We The People"

"Wherever he appears, Malone is billed as the inventor of mRNA vaccines. It’s in his Twitter bio. “I literally invented mRNA technology when I was 28,” says Malone, who is now 61. If that’s true—or, more to the point, if Malone believes it to be true—then you might expect him to be championing a very different message in his media appearances. According to …

How unmitigated wind development threatens the environment and human livelihoods


The growing wind industry is increasingly looking to offshore to capture ample wind resources, especially in the Northeast U.S. However, the impact of this development on commercial fishermen, endangered species, and grid reliability is being ignored. Hear from a group of Rhode Island fishermen who are suing the federal government to properly enforce its laws and how Texas could be impacted by the outcome.

My CMP Bill

People in the Central Maine Power service area in Maine are going to see a little cruise missile in their power bills this month. The electricity portion of our home's electric bill went from $.064494 per kilowatt hour to $.118161, an 83.2% increase. That's almost doubled, overnight.

If the price we paid through December 31st would have remained the same through the January portion of our billing period, we would have paid $58.68 for power. If the new rate would…

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 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/
