I Have Waited More Than A Year and a Half For This!!!

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…

Emera wants to connect northern Maine wind to Massachusetts with undersea cable

The parent company of the electric utility Emera Maine hopes to establish an undersea cable linking electricity generators in northern Maine, Newfoundland, Labrador and Nova Scotia with users in Massachusetts.

Does This Mean All Our Maine Windfarms Are Non-Functional?

"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…

The inconvenient fact about Renewables??--.Permian Basin adding billions of cubic feet of gas .

 FLOOD of Dense NATURAL GAS for years to come. 

The U.S. has been floating on a cloud of excess natural gas for the past decade and the oil-rich Permian basin is set to add to the gas glut, write Tim Puko and Christopher M. Matthews.

Technological innovations in shale oil drilling have opened the spigots for crude as well as…

COP21, WORLD RENEWABLE ENERGY AND WORLD TRADE

The purpose of this article is to present major topics relevant to COP21. Independent articles represent most of the topics. The independent articles should be read in sequence.

 

The entire article and the independent articles are updated/revised as new information becomes available. In that manner, the articles continue as living, real-time documents, instead of remaining a dated, stationary slice of time, a major benefit for the readership made possible by Internet…

Can the PPH Be More Hypocritical? I don't think so!

Refinery plan called affront to Teddy Roosevelt’s legacy

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…

Is ‘big wind’ making people sick?

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…

For those of you who remember the movie, "The Graduate""The future was in plastic" Well......the future is in METHANE HYDRATES!

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…

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.
