Rigging the internet message - Seeing is believing

Check out Google's search engines vs. Bing search engines on your own and remember, Google is heavily invested in eagle slaughtering wind energy. Google search engines also filter into their searches, more fraudulent propaganda links.                                                                                                                                                 …

Sun Journal - U.S. fishermen fear forests of wind turbines

East Coast fishermen are turning a wary eye toward an emerging upstart: the offshore wind industry......For fishermen, the broader concern is that offshore wind farms will only lead to more stifling restrictions.

When Too Much Wind Is Too Little Electricity, A Government Solution

Two Illinois nuclear plants were in jeopardy of closing because even at a low cost of five cents or so per kWh, they were losing a combined $100 million per year because they could not compete with cheap natural gas and wind energy that is subsidized at 2.3¢/kWh. Illinois taxpayers subsidize solar energy at 21¢/kWh. This bill provides these nuclear plants with just 1¢/kWh, and only until market conditions change.

New York’s new Clean Energy Standard includes the…

Interior Department's 12/22 MBTA opinion - An obvious sellout

It is incredibly naive to expect the swamp to fix the swamp. Or in this case, expecting the Interior Department to protect our rapidly disappearing migratory bird species from the biggest threat facing birds in the world today, wind energy developments. Instead of protecting migratory species from this industry, the Interior Department has been colluding with and protecting this industry for decades while 200-300 million birds, along with tens…

Massachusetts Court Shuts Down Falmouth Wind Turbines- Maine Next Target ?

Massachusetts has a renewable energy goal of 2000 Megawatts of renewable energy by the year 2020.

The only way to achieve this goal is to place projects in Maine!

Massachusetts town bans wind turbines 101-22

The criminals in the wind industry and Mass legislature leadership will want to look towards their Maine wind plantation more than ever. 

Voters in this tiny Berkshire County hilltown, population around 800, overwhelmingly banned all new wind turbine development at a special town meeting. Thursday night's vote was 101-22, far more than the two-thirds majority needed to amend the town's zoning code.…

TROUBLES AHEAD ?

Remember when the 100 megawatt cap on hydro law was challenged every year in the Maine Legislature ?

Remember how the wind and solar zombie representatives said it would wash out all the opportunities for wind and solar, so they refused to remove the cap ?

Well, the people in charge of reliability of New England Electrical Generation have something to say:

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.

“First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”
