This article is being posted on behalf of Lynne Williams. The place described is over a 3,000 mile drive from Maine. But it feels like Maine or maybe Maine feels like Tehuantepec.
To All, Many of the struggles are hidden, like the one described below. Lynne

This is worth noting given how the wind industry and their sock puppets at the so called and on-the-take environmental groups in Maine like to cite Denmark as a shining role model of wind power. DONG is 76% owned by the Danish government. ""Every time we were building onshore, the public reacts in a …Continue

Listen again please, for there is no other way to say it - the Maine Senate just…Continue
