"Killing Maine" Interviews TV and Radio

A bit late but I just received a schedule of interviews for Mike Bond and his new book, "Killing Maine", that quite accurately describes what most of us have been exposed to with the corrupt wind industry and Legislators in Augusta.

The Howie Carr Show will feature "Killing Maine" this Friday at 6pm.  I know WGAN and WVOM carry Howie.

Since Howie's Show covers most of New England and is national, It would be helpful if many of us would call in an express our frustration and…

PATRICIA AHO LEAVING DEP

Patricia Aho is leaving DEP and going to work for Senator Collins.  I, for one, am very disappointed to hear this.  In my view, she has been an excellent administrator, with respect for Maine laws, and also Maine people. She will be very difficult to replace!…

OBAMA RENAMES MT. MCKINLEY DENALI

This is not about wind - It is about President Obama's Executive order today renaming Mt.McKinley. Not about wind, but driven by the same UNAMERICAN Thinking - A total disregard for this country and our heritage! When I read it all I could think about was Steve Martin's famous line in the movie Parenthood - "Feel like you want to throw up?"…

AWEA’s Eagle Mortality Defense: A Response

By Jim Wiegand -- August 31, 2015

“Wind projects are the number one source of golden eagle fatalities, mortally wounded eagles, and eagle carcasses found in the regions of wind farms. It is very telling that Mr. Anderson would compare this regional slaughter to every other source of human-related eagle mortality on a planet occupied by 7 billion people.”

In the weekend Wall Street Journal, John Anderson of…

Group of 14 Mainers taking ‘climate tour’ of Denmark

I hope while they are in Denmark, they take notice of the cost of energy in Denmark.  It is roughly $.47 per kwh!  We in Maine can not sustain that kind of cost for electricity.  Maine would become a wilderness again as all the businesses and people would move to where they could afford it.  I notice that all these people in the group are from the southern part of the state, where they have yet to put any wind turbines.  They want to send more our way!…

SAY WHAT? Solar advocates see bright opportunity in northern Maine

While I have long been a user of a solar array on my camp that is off the grid, and I support those who want to put solar arrays on their own home, here in Maine, 4.2 usable hours of wintertime sun is hardly a "bright opportunity."  That is just 17.5% of usable power for the array.  As long as this is used by private homes or businesses, I have no problem, but this sounds like wealthy investors might jump into the market for the massive subsidies available.…

Keeping the lights on

Massachusetts is so far behind Maine in clean air and energy yet they are depending on Maine to provide "renewables" (wind) for the future.  Maine is the second cleanest state in the union when it comes to greenhouse gasses due to our use of hydro, gas and biomass.  We can not turn Vacationland into Wind Devastated Land for Mass, Conn, RI and NY.…

JUNKET PLANNED TO EXPLORE CLEAN ENERGY IN DENMARK

A 14 member Maine delegation will travel to Denmark to explore their excellent "green Energy Facilities". Good luck with that at .41 cents a KWH!!  I know people over there who  can't even afford to charge their electric cars let alone turn their lights on!

Energy Delusions

Last week was the big Clean Energy Summit in Las Vegas.  This article was written from our side of the argument so it is like preaching to the choir.  Prepare to get a good laugh at the continuous stream of mis-truths and outright lies as told by our opponents.

Sun Edison is testing for another Wind Farm in Somerset County.

It might take another two years for the data to be collected, but Sun Edison is looking to expand their holdings in Maine.  Let's all hope that the subsidies die out, and there is new blood in Washington that will put an end to the madness.  The folly of wind has got to end before all our hilltops look like Stetson, Hancock and others.…

SunEdison withdraws Weaver Wind application, for now

The proposal from the Missouri-based developer called for 14 turbines in Osborn and another eight in Eastbrook, a wind farm to be known as Weaver Wind.

SunEdison’s application to the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) was accepted as complete at the end of January. A draft analysis of the project was issued in mid-June, in which the Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife (IF&W) raised concerns about bird fatalities it said could result from the proposed…

TWO STATE COURTS WHO RULED AGAINST WIND DEVELOPMENT !

WISCONSIN: You may recall the Town of Forest v. Wisconsin PSC involving the Highland Wind project. In February 2013, Wisconsin's Public Service Commission denied a permit for the project due to noise concerns, but Emerging Energies (the developer) urged the commission to reopen the case, citing new technology that permitted the project owner to…

I'm not sure where all the facts that this article throws out there came from, but I know not one of them to be true.

The Pres gave a speech in Las Vegas at the National Clean Energy Summit and threw out a bunch of pure fiction.  Read it and see if you can't poke a few holes in it.

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.
