Notable quotes about this lying loser of an industry

From April 7, 1985 -"Tax credits guarantee a market" and "Federal tax credits are scheduled to end after this year."                                                                                                                                                                        From Dec 17 1980 - "Wind is not the solution to the energy crisis."   They knew it back then and they still know it. In other words, since it is not a solution that can meet…

Grid Reliability: DOE Throws Down Red Flags On Unreliable Wind And Solar (Forbes)

What’s notable about the report is the absence of a monomaniacal advocacy for renewables, combined with a sober description of grid engineering and physics. That tone, by itself, is a sea change.........And for discerning policymakers, the key takeaway from the report amounts to a go-slow for those eager to rapidly force far more VRE on the grid – VRE, variable renewable energy, is DOE’s euphemism for solar and wind.........We also find DOE saying that when it comes to…

Are there more than 11000 bald eagles living in the New England and Mid Atlantic states?

Are there another 27,000 bald eagles living in the Great Lake States?  No but greedy wind developers and the Interior Department want you to think so.  These numbers are not real. These are fake Interior Department numbers created…

Enviro Elites' War on the Poor

Members of the environmental left like to portray themselves as do gooders - social justice warriors who walk on a higher plane, saving the planet and saving its unwashed ignorant commoners from themselves. Their advocacy of wind power (which they often do because their funders instruct them to do so) hardly constitutes "social justice" and disproportionately harms the poor.

Unlike the wealthy who can lawyer up, the poor cannot as readily fight off wind developers. The wealthy…

It's Time To Tell Massachusetts To Take A Hike - - - Like They Told Us!

On July 27th Massachusetts closed their bids for clean energy. Over Four Dozen bidders including Emera and CMP put in bids for Maine Wind. 

Several months ago Massachusetts told us that they would NOT approve running a Natural Gas Main through their state for us here in Maine to allow gas for heating and…

New Grid Study Finally Released, And The Winner Is … Wind Power!

I'm not sure, but I happen to believe there is a wolf in the sheep herd by the name of Rick Perry. Perry, a strong proponent of wind power and now the head of the energy department, seems to be corrupting the very study he asked for. The study that was just released this week that we covered earlier, proposed that renewable variable output energy should be replaced by baseload energy from gas and coal and nuclear and steer away from feckless, expensive wind and solar for stability and…

Wind Energy Isn't A Breeze

Iowa, the largest state in the Union supporting wind power, created by and strongly supported by Republicans and Democrats at the state and local level, has completely sold out to the wind industry. Most of these huge wind farms are being built in the rural farm areas of the state, which is MOST of the state. Farmers were excited in the beginning, 1983, that they would be able to reap, or rape, the wind industry of "leasing money" for use of part of their farms to build turbines. Well, it's…

DOE Grid Study: Green energy industries DO pose a significant threat to the U.S. electrical grid

"Solar and wind power, alongside natural gas, have made the grid much more complex and less resilient.........The agency’s findings run contrary to a report from unnamed sources earlier this month that suggested green energy industries do not pose a significant threat to the U.S. electrical grid.......The DOE’s study comes after Perry said in early April that he and international counterparts discussed the need for a diverse supply of electricity during a G-7 Energy Ministerial meeting in…

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.
