Wind production tax credit should be left expired

Here’s a question for Kansas’s congressional delegation: Do you support raising gas and electricity bills in the Sunflower state by more than $750 in the next five years? That’s exactly what’s at stake with Congress’s upcoming vote to renew the wind Production Tax Credit (PTC).

This is what we here in Maine are facing also if the PTC is renewed.  We need to have this letter put into the PPH, BDN, LSJ and other papers around the State, and write and copy this letter…

OUR OPINION: Loss of Statoil stings as Scotland project advances

Kennebec Journal and Morning Sentinel opinion piece that is very slanted toward the Wind side of the argument saying that LePage sent StatOil packing and continues to fight for hydro from Quebec.  They still maintain that wind is priced comparable to hydro, coal, gas, etc.  How do we let these liars and fabricators keep spewing the mis-facts they do?  Offshore wind is going to be extraordinarily expensive to get up and running.…

The needs of developing countries and indigenous communities are being blocked by developed countries, according to the group, which hopes to expose “inequities caused by the unjust, capitalistic systems currently in power” and apply pressure on developed countries to agree to large-scale reductions in greenhouse gas emissions.…

CO2 Given Priority in Military Decision Making?

Islamic State earns about $500 million a year from its oil revenues. But according to former CIA director Mike Morrell, US fighter aircraft have been ordered not to bomb their oil wells in case they cause “environmental damage.”

Yes. That makes sense. Clearly one of the main priorities in any war of attrition should be to do…

George Smith Continues to Pack Up with the Wind Crowd

Angus King, Adam Lee, Maureen Drouin, George Smith. What a crew.

Maureen Drouin, executive director of Maine Conservation Voters, heard Yearwood speak at a League of Conservation Voters national event and invited him to Maine. And I am so glad she did. His speech was provocative and challenging, for sure.

“The fossil fuel industry’s current business plan amounts to a death sentence for young people,” he said.…

Another wasteful way to spend more taxpayer dollars and new creation of more bloodsuckers.

Schneider Electric, Vaisala Sign Global Wind Energy Forecasting Agreement

It seems as if there is free gub'ment money out there, there will be someone to find a way to collect it. And so there is a new alliance of two companies to create a way to predict wind and sell the results to the other Wind Vultures.  What ever happened to standing on a hill and holding your wet finger up.…

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/
