YOU'VE GOTTA ASK YOURSELF WHY!

So 2 years ago the Maine legislature voted to increase the spend limit on the Maine Turnpike to  70 MPH - The result - a 3% increase in carbon emissions from our transportation sector!  What are we doin' here folks?

A Fond Du Lac Farmer has regrets about agreeing to host a wind turbine--

Why can't he speak openly about it?



When you sign a 20 to 30 year contract to host a wind turbine on your property you may be signing away many rights you're unaware of. A confidentiality agreement in the contract may mean legal action can be…

In the USA - Putting people in jail for holding the wrong views on global warming

Their allies on the left have now voted in the United States Senate to repeal the First Amendment.  Not in a blanket basis. It came up in a specific sense.  But there was a vote on repealing the First Amendment.  It's all about climate change.…

A few weeks ago this CEO said he would be just as happy if the PTC went away. They didn't NEED it.

Ahmad R. Chatila, the CEO of Sun Edison, said a few weeks ago he didn't need the PTC to develop wind farms in the USA.  Now it seems he can't live without them.  This extension is criminal and just proves that it doesn't make any difference which party is in power, they are both interested in their own pockets, not ours.  I'm truly sick.…

THE WIND INDUSTRY CONTINUES TO CROW

With the boost from Congress and 5 more years of propped up support, the wind industry continues to spread their myths.  I for one wish they would start telling the truth...forget about capacity- tell the truth about production!

M.D. Harmon:Thankfully, the COP21 farce doesn't have the whole wide world in its hands.

What do you get when 40,000 people fly to a luxurious destination on carbon-spewing jets to save the planet from, well, carbon-spewing jets (and everything else powered by oil or natural gas).

There are some wonderful parks in South Portland that are just right for a Solar Farm!

For the reasons of climate change and  the lowering  of CO2 levels (and  the prevention of  Portland  sinking into the bay which is imminent) this must be done. Who cares how much land is used!

Ex. Rep. Jon Hinck and his enviro-lawyer wife Juliot ( "Windmill" Hinck) Browne may even  support it (if there is money to be made) so it must be a wonderful thing indeed. 

Who cares if all the power leaves the area and increase S.Portland's electrical…

The taxpayer and ratepayer lose again to the deep pockets in DC.

Looks like we are going to be able to ship oil overseas when we have finally gotten to the point we do not have to rely on Arab Oil.  If we could build the pipeline and frack for gas and oil we would have enough for the next 1,000 years.  But these clowns in Washington are so used to big money, they really don't understand that the money has to come from somewhere and that is from the small ratepayers and taxpayers like us.  They are going to push oil back up, and electricity rates up…

Donald Trump loses Scotland wind farm battle at Supreme Court - will continue the fight

A spokesman for the Trump Organisation promised to continue the fight and claimed the outcome demonstrated the “foolish, small minded and parochial mentality which dominates the current Scottish Government’s dangerous experiment with wind energy”......

......"A decision to this effect will be a relief for the Scottish Government, but Mr Trump may still not give up just yet. He has one last avenue open to him, the option of taking his case to the European Court - which he has…

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/
