REPLACING GASOLINE AND DIESEL FUEL WITH BIOFUELS

The main purpose of replacing gasoline and diesel fuel with biofuels is to reduce CO2eq emissions. This analysis found:

 

- Replacing gasoline with 100% ethanol reduces CO2eq from 1504 MMt to 1431 MMt, or 4.9%

- Replacing diesel fuel with 100% biofuel reduces CO2eq from 587 MMt to 234 MMt, or 60.1%.

 

These values are less than are usually stated, because upstream CO2eq emissions were included.

In case of ethanol, E100, the combustion CO2eq…

Heat pumps in Maine: Set it and forget it? Or turn it off for the winter?

The state's energy-efficiency experts promote the latest versions for winter heat, if they're installed and used correctly, to reduce fossil-fuel emissions. But some installers say it's best to use them any time but winter.

To the metal beasts on the hilltop

One generation of elites forced open-pit mining onto southern Appalachia, and another is forcing grotesque wind turbines onto northern Appalachia. The connection is powerlessness, and the belief of one group of people that they have the right to destroy the homeland of another group of people. We are a dumping ground, and no one will hear our voice........

The Big Dipper and Orion, each in their season, have climbed above the hills of dozens of home valleys, to be seen by…

Maine land-based wind power - gubernatorial candidates' positions (Maine Sunday Telegram)

- Mills would rescind LePage’s ban, and is supportive of well-sited wind projects to cut fossil fuel demand.

- Moody’s position is more in line with LePage. He expresses concern for visual impacts around the Moosehead and Rangeley lakes regions, for instance. “We can’t be shortsighted in promoting the wind industry at the expense of our tourism industry,” he says.

- Caron says he wants to “move carefully,” gaining a better understanding…

NECEC New England Clean Energy Connect Cmp bait & switch

Thank you,Christopher Hyde for explaining so well why dams are bad and contribute to...not help eliminate...unclean power and are just no damn good!

1. NO hydroelectric dam is without environmental consequences. One reservoir, the size of Connecticut (about the size of some built by Hydro Quebec) displaces entire forests of CO2-absorbing trees.

2. No fish grown in these waters are edible, because of mercury contamination.

3. Hydro-Power can replace some fossil fuel generated…

NECEC a real bad deal for Maine



Dear County and State Leaders,

We are a group of 4,000+ members, including concerned Maine Residents and Taxpayers, from diverse backgrounds who are opposed to CMP’s proposed New England Clean Energy Connect Project. NECEC is a 145-mile transmission line that would installed from Beattie Township on the Canadian Border through the Boundary Mountains, under the Kennebec River gorge, and expand existing corridor south to Lewiston. A new substation would be constructed in Pownal,…

Maine likely to get hit this winter with huge energy cost spikes thanks to environmental activists

Last Year’s New England Winter Was Brutal on the Energy Grid. Get Ready for Worse.

Posted to Energy October 17, 2018 by Michael Graham

The New England region will be the hardest hit—right in the wallet– due to the region’s disproportionate reliance on home heating oil. The EIA anticipates that propane prices will remain flat, electricity costs will rise 3 percent and natural…

World Health Organization: Wind Turbine Noise as a Health Hazard

By Sherri Lange -- October 17, 2018

“The wind industry has denied and ignored evidence directly linking wind turbines and sleep disruption leading to negative human and animal impacts worldwide. Expect WHO’s new Guidelines to give rise to new standards to mitigate if not eliminate this ongoing suffering.”

“The burden of environmental noise with wind turbines is not episodic or random: for the most part its effects are constant and unrelenting…. This is an…

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/
