I like this comment from a reader of this article:
The comparison isn't even close. Wind turbines in America probably kill more birds
each month than the BP oil spill in the Gulf.
But what is the public to believe when research is rigged, our government is
corrupt and very little we are being told about renewable energy is the truth?
We are not being told about important turbine impacts like the extinction…
One of the investors in the Somerset Economic Development Corporation is Cianbro...
We can now Identify a common Enemy, not only per this article but also by a long ago article that Vigue of Cianbro who is part or by now whole owner of the former Moscow Over the Horizon Radar station, has stated his plans for 10 Wind Turbines at some point in time. Remember the Somerset County Commissioners sold out the…

This is the message I sent to the Maine Legislature's Environment and Natural Resources Committee, including the photos. It is NOT too late to email or call the Committee members to do the right thing and pass LD 911, which includes a greater scenic impact zone for the ever larger wind turbines and putting cumulative impact into the law as criteria. Here is the link to the Committee: …Continue
The importance of having firm generation capacity as opposed to non-dispatchable sources like wind power may be touched upon today in the discussion of LD 1313. As noted in FMM's most recent legislative update, LD 1313 would remove the referendum requirement for installing nuclear plants that are small. The idea in this Governor's bill is that we need firm generation capacity as opposed to non-dispatchable…Continue

Last week, on Earth Day, under questioning from Rep. Bob Duschesne, Dr. David Publicover, senior staff scientist with the Appalachian Mountain Club and a member of The Governor's Task Force on Wind Power Development that laid the groundwork for Maine's shameful expedited wind law, admitted that the task force never considered the cumulative impact of erecting gargantuan industrial wind turbines throughout Maine.

An effort by opponents to stop a proposed Ohio wind farm, which includes a legally questionable maneuver to prevent property owners from granting variances, has the support of the state legislature’s most outspoken critic of renewable energy."
Government-subsidized, grid-scale wind and solar do not pass the real cost-benefit analysis, and worse they siphon much needed funds away from finding truly clean solutions for a power-hungry planet.
Our energy policies should be based on science, not symbolism.

An "all of the above" strategy is the energy equivalent of making sure that everyone on the Little League team is given a trophy....or perhaps telling little Johnny that 1 + 1 = "Whatever answer feels good for you Johnny". The wind industry uses the phrase "all of the above" all the time, seeking safety in the herd and vampire-like avoidance of sunlight.…Continue
Happy Earth Day windies.
Governor LePage says his goals are simple. "I hope to get four governors to agree that we need a pipeline and we move together to get a pipe line, and that we get together to buy cheap energy from Canada."
