Since October of 2015, when the "Community Organizer In Chief" signed on to the Paris Accord, I have waited for this day. A day when a real businessman gets into office and begins to look at Economic Reality. This is the new era where we will not subject ourselves to a New World Order and will Make America Great Again.
I've been telling Mike White that this was coming. I know how he feels, as that was the way I felt when the community organizer signed on to this loony contract…Continue

"Transmission bottlenecks that prevent Maine’s wind generation from reaching load centers in Massachusetts and Connecticut could be relieved by allowing large and small generators to pool their interconnection requests."
To me this sounds like the planning of our great "Wind" experiment was seriously flawed and rushed to production to scoff up the huge tax and construction subsidies. We have all known that the current…Continue

The ultimate Hypocrisy of the PPH is overwhelming. They import an article all the way from North Dakota to protest an “Affront To The Legacy Of Teddy Roosevelt.” Where were they when the now defunct and bankrupt First Wind, a spawn of King Angus and his cronies, decided to step all over a 2003 Maine Department of Conservation acquisition of lands and established a…Continue

According to Renewable Northwest, a renewable energy nonprofit organization, the average wind turbine operates at around 50 decibels. However, a 2003 study indicates the during nighttime hours, the sound produced from wind turbines could be 18 decibels higher than the predicted daytime levels due to the lack of ambient background noise. This translates to the average wind turbine being 13 decibels higher than the amount that causes adverse health effects. The study was conducted of wind…Continue

We all know that dense reliable energy sources like oil, natural gas, and nuclear are beneficial and support modernity because per unit of their mass, they produce large amounts of mobile electron generation and power when efficiently utilized. Wind and solar as we all know are expensive low density faddist political "green" costly items that only produce feckless intermittent sources of power . They must be subsidized too at high levels by our tax dollar and must utilize fossil backup…Continue
