One is left to wonder as to why so many different groups, some of them so called "environmental" are all based at the same office suite in Boston. And this may only be a partial list. Are they commonly funded and if so, who is behind them?

Gov. Paul LePage is absolutely correct that gasoline blended with 15 percent or more ethanol is bad for the consumer and the environment, contrary to what Rick Santorum had to say in his July 18 OpEd.
In my opinion, the most important issue is that it ruins fuel systems and actually corrodes carburetors and fuel injectors. It eats seals and gaskets and is particularly detrimental to small two-cycle motors. The ethanol makes them almost unusable after only a year or two.
The Maine Conservation Law Foundation has sued the Maine PUC for allegedly approving a funding level of Efficiency Maine that is less than state law requires. Efficiency Maine provides heating incentives for things like switching to natural gas. Hmmm! What could Maine CLF's motivation be?

Wind turbine related nesting failures occur with all birds during the egg and downy stages of a nesting cycle. If an adult is killed by a turbine, there is a 100 percent probability of a complete nest failure because it is simply not possible for a single parent to hunt, incubate or protect their downy young from the elements. Fraudulent wind industry research has hidden these turbine impacts to wildlife.
From the 2015 NH peregrine falcon data..........."Of this year’s…Continue
