The Wind Industry Does Not Want Mainers to See this Video

Not as long as we get Noreasters.

The AWEA claims that wind "farms" survive hurricanes:

"In summary: wind turbines can survive hurricanes. It’s up to existing projects, project developers, turbine manufacturers and the industry as a whole, to update the public on how turbines handle extreme weather events".…

DOE Secretary Perry Urges FERC to Take Swift Action to Address Threats to Grid Resiliency

9/29/17

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Today, U.S. Secretary of Energy Rick Perry formally proposed that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) take swift action to address threats to U.S. electrical grid resiliency.  Pursuant to his authority under Section 403 of the Department of Energy Organization Act, the Secretary urged the Commission to issue a final rule requiring its organized markets to develop and implement reforms that would…

Wind Industry Crying About Department of Energy Decision Today

The American Wind Energy Association said Perry’s proposal “would upend competitive markets that save consumers billions of dollars a year.”

“The best way to guarantee a resilient and reliable electric grid is through market-based compensation for performance, not guaranteed payments for some, based on a government-prescribed definition,”…

LePage wants to develop a new gas pipeline from Quebec

Environmental groups in Maine have been fighting pipeline expansions, favoring investments in efficiency, wind and solar........In his remarks to the gas group, LePage blamed “liberals” who have pushed policies to subsidize wind and solar energy for Maine’s above-average electric costs, noting that nearly half of the state’s electricity is generated by gas. …

CMP/Avangrid/Iberdrola Transmission Scheme

They are at it again!  Beattie Township on the Quebec/Maine border is an odd place to bring Canadian power into Maine, as the prime sources of newly developed and planned hydro is northeastern Quebec and Labrador, especially the massive Churchill Falls site. What this line WILL do, however, is provide Avangrid with a trunk line to develop wind power projects in the Boundary Mountains and Moosehead Lake…

This Bipartisan Senate Bill Could Enable US Offshore Wind to Take Off

Guess who is sponsoring this Bi-Partisan Senate bill? Three guesses and the First two don't count. What's worse, she may be signing on to be Governor after LePage terms out. OUCH!!!! At all costs, we must end her misguided attempt to be anything more than a RINO Senator. Sorry I have to get so political, but when I think of the hours and hours I put in on every one of her campaigns, how much money I spent…

EU Utilities Say Plan for CO2 Cap on Power Subsidies Will Raise Costs

The EU is finally admitting that wind power will not be able to provide enough energy for their needs without backing up with coal or gas plants for baseload. They are misguidedly phasing out reliable nuclear. Energy prices in the EU are already some of the highest in the World and looks like they are going to go up. This puts their industry in peril. Everyday Germans are already having to decide whether to pay for their energy or buy food. The fantasy of wind and solar is that no matter how…

Wind and water: Powering our past, and future

More from the unhinged left. This time it's from the New Hampshire press which has been co-opted by those from Massachusetts plying their idea that huge offshore wind developments would save our planet. They would be building one a week until 2030 off the Maine Coast and he wonders why New Hampshire should not get in on the action. Anybody see the pictures of what happened to the turbines in Puerto Rico…

I am an active user of Facebook and belong to two groups organized around hiking in Maine.  Whenever someone posts a photo from a Maine mountain that includes wind turbines I always make comments critical of the turbines.  If you are using Face Book, I suggest you do the same.  Just search FB for Maine Hiking.  Today, someone posted some really nice photos of Saddleback in Carthage and, unfortunately, chose to add this photo of the wind turbines.  Here is my comment:

First Evidence That Offshore Wind Farms Are Changing the Oceans

Surprise! Surprise!  There is evidence that offshore wind farms will be changing the ocean. We already know it is causing whale communication problems and strandings.  

The interesting part of this article comes in the very first paragraph; "Offshore wind farms are becoming increasingly common in our oceans. In Europe, the goal is for them to supply over 4 percent of the continent’s electricity by 2030.  And that’s triggering a wind power boom—the amount of electricity…

CONFRONTING MAINE AUDUBON reps. at Common Ground's environmental tent.

Confronted the people from Maine Audubon yesterday at Common Ground on their support of wind farms. 

 They were very defensive, and had a scripted response which evaded specifying wind farms; but what emerged is they don't directly do any investigation of bird or bee kills or the effects of herbicide spraying in transmission R.O.W. or destruction of bird habitat; they rely on third parties to do that. 

Take some pic's of dead endangered species and keep confronting them. Find…

New Scare Study! Beware . . . Peddling The Scam

Professor Daniel Rothman, another of the NWO "scientists", is putting the blame for "Mass Extinctions" purely on the back of the CARBON pollution we have brought on by our industrial modernization. He says that by 2100, in the lifetime of our grandchildren, we could see many mass extinctions and that they are already happening. What he neglects to throw into the equation is that most of the mass extinctions we have experienced in our own lifetime have NOT come from carbon pollution but from…

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.
