Not exactly sure who the other named partner is - DNV GL. But from their website, it would appear that they are headquartered in Norway. Why is so much U.S. taxpayer money being handed out like candy to foreign countries for basically useless endeavors? https://www.dnvgl.com/about/in-brief/our-organization.html
Bowling for subsidies continued. So long as there is an endless supply of ratepayers who have been hoodwinked by the media to believe wind power is a viable and necessary electricity source, there will be an endless supply of hucksters looking to take advantage. Why is nuclear power almost never mentioned by the media? Why are the true costs of wind power almost never mentioned by the media? Did a university ever see an opportunity for grant money it didn't like?

For me, a very interesting look into today's college students and how they think. Particularly interesting is the second half, where at about the 31 minute mark the reporter attempts a conversation with the college's "Environmental Justice" group. The reporter stays composed throughout and patiently hangs in there, eventually demonstrating it's possible to have a productive discourse, even when people disagree. These are young kids, most of them seemingly good kids. It's probably a good bet…Continue
The more you look, the more you find. Even out energy siting require wind farms to have Environmental impact statements.

Big bucks....windturbines catch fire don't they?

Ignoring these costs is simply Rigged Game 101.
(1) Transmission costs are much higher than those of other types of electricity, but they are not charged back to wind and solar in most studies.
(2) With increased long distance electricity transmission, there is a need for increased maintenance of transmission lines. If this is not performed adequately, fires are likely, especially in dry, windy areas.
(3) A huge investment in charging stations…Continue

Politicians like to envision a shiny future of solar and wind and electric cars...........................
Maine has roughly 500,000 homes. And while some are newer and energy-efficient, most aren’t. Upgrading them will take time and money – and at the current pace, many decades.
That timetable could be accelerated, if weatherization becomes a priority for the new…Continue

THE CASE AGAINST INTENSIVE FOREST MANAGEMENT IN MAINE http://www.forestecologynetwork.org/BANDY22.htm

The forestland of Maine is sometimes referred to as the Northern…Continue
Say the name Audubon and birds will likely come to mind. When I hear this name, thoughts of total disgust and corruption flow into my mind.
Audubon has a net worth of nearly half a billion. Why?
One primary reasons is because they have chosen to be silent about the biggest environmental disaster to ever hit bird species, wind energy. They have also completely avoided scientific research, even though they could afford to conduct their own credible…Continue
The University of Maine at Orono will develop an alternative floating substructure design for a 10–12 MW wind turbine in place of the currently planned two 6-MW turbine floating offshore wind demonstration project planned for deployment off Monhegan Island, Maine.
Is planting trees in naturally open canopy areas such as the savanna needed to absorb mankind's "unnatural" CO2 emissions or is it mere disregard for the law of unintended consequences? Alternately, would simply letting forests do what forests do best be more sensible? If the latter is pursued and a naturally heavily forested place like northern New England alters its use of forests to heighten carbon capture, what are the local economic effects, particularly given the biggest CO2 emitter is…Continue
Think what you like about Alex Jones. I love him. But whatever you think, you can't deny that he hit it perfectly when he named his website Infowars. What we see playing out today is a war of competing information where completely fabricated lies often outnumber the truth.
That the media have incessantly lied about wind power…Continue
