Mills vows that Maine will lead in reducing emissions, but state GOP sees 'destructive proposals'

The executive director of Maine’s Republican Party described Gov. Janet Mills’ speech to the United Nations last week as inspiring but not realistic in the long term.

“What happens is Janet Mills and other Democrats make positive speeches that sound wonderful, and what happens to follow it up is a whole bunch of destructive proposals that don’t have the people of Maine at heart,” Jason Savage, executive director of the Maine Republican Party, told The Center Square.

The speech…

Vermont renewable energy trade scheme comes under scrutiny

When Vermont policymakers discuss the state’s rising greenhouse gas emissions, the consensus is that the electric sector is doing pretty well. 

Vermont requires utilities to supply 75% of their energy renewably by 2032 — one of the highest mandates in the country — and multiple utilities are already 100% renewable. 

Nationally, electricity accounts for 28% of greenhouse gas emissions; in Vermont, electricity accounts for just shy of 10%.  …

DARTMOUTH RECONSIDERING WHETHER TO BUILD BIOMASS PLANT

By JOHN P. GREGG, Valley News Staff Writer, Tuesday, September 24, 2019

 

HANOVER — Dartmouth College is reconsidering whether to rely on a proposed biomass plant to heat its campus after prominent alumni environmentalists said burning wood chips contributes to global warming.

 

“At this point, biomass is still on the table, but we are going through a process to kind of confirm if that makes sense,” Josh Keniston, the Dartmouth’s vice president for institutional…

John McClaughry: Climate activist hypocrisies exposed

Other than letters to the editor and a very rare article, has anyone noticed how the mainstream media are ignoring Michael Moore's new anti-renewable energy film, Planet of the Humans? Add this I suppose to the subjects they simply won't touch, the "third rails" of today's nightmarishly fake journalism. There is no question about the mainstream media being controlled.

UMaine awarded surprisingly small share of $26 million floating offshore wind program funding

The U.S. Department of Energy has announced $26 million in funding for 13 projects as part of the Aerodynamic Turbines, Lighter and Afloat, with Nautical Technologies and Integrated Servo-control (ATLANTIS) program. These teams will develop new technologies for floating, offshore wind turbines (FOWTs) using the discipline of control co-design (CCD). Maine's share is $1.4 million, a surprisingly small piece given Maine has prided itself as the U.S. leader in floating offshore wind.…

Corrupt swamp dwelling agency, the US Fish and Wildlife Service has to go

Besides hiding the origin of death for over 57,000 eagle carcasses (since 1995) sent to their facility in Denver, this is another good reason why the government agency known as the US Fish and Wildlife Service has to go. With these guys in charge and if there is a corporate dollar to be made, there will be no wildlife left.

With not one shred of valid research about the Hawaiian Hoary bat, a critically endangered species, the USFWS made these "Incidental Take"…

The UN's Climate Change Agenda is So Extreme Its Own Analysts Can't Defend It

09/18/2019  Robert P. Murphy

Advocates of aggressive government intervention in the name of fighting climate change have posed as the defenders of “consensus science,” labeling any who dissent from their agenda as “deniers” with all of the baggage that term entails. And yet, as I’ve been pointing out for years, the peer-reviewed economics literature does not support the popular United Nations’ policy goals, of limiting global warming to either 2.0°C or the even more stringent ceiling…

Deputy Secretary of Energy: ‘Impossible’ to Reduce ‘Carbon Emissions’ Without ‘Nuclear Energy’

We’re developing technologies in our national laboratories that will allow some of these smaller modular advanced reactors to come online. … Their fuels are … what we refer to as ‘walk-away safe.’ The days of a meltdown, if you will … we can move away from that with some of the newer technologies, and that’s an exciting feature for nuclear…

U.S. Carbon Emissions at Lowest Level Since 1992

“The environmental protection agency reports that carbon emissions from energy use from the U.S. are the lowest since 1992,” Jerome Hudson said.

“Hollywood elites and establishment media are so busy telling us the America must lead and do more on climate change that the don’t realize that America has reduced its carbon emissions for nearly decades.” Hudson said. “Democrats push a $16 trillion Green New Deal plan that will heavily tax the middle class. Democrats can’t explain their…

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.
