It is summertime in Maine , and there many things for our guests to see and visit!



Come see the Wind Turbines In Danforth Maine (The Stetson Project) and Mars Hill. Ask the residents there how they like them. Visit the Island of Vinalhaven and be awe struck at the majestic machines, as they cause residents to leave their properties for relief from the noise. Visit Freedom Maine and ask the residents there how… Continue

and always remember this: THE DAMN THINGS DON'T WORK ANYWAY!

At the very least, after you stand on the shoulders of Nina(Pierpoint) and Calvin, and others like them, and explain the potent and insidious health hazards; or quote the first-hand accounts of people in Vinalhaven or Falmouth or Mars Hill Maine; or call attention to the work of scientists like Dr. Kurt Fristrup at NPS Sounds Program on the devastating impact of “chronic noise” upon the habitat; you should immediately say: “And the worst thing is, THE DAMN THINGS DON’T WORK, ANYWAY!”

ALWAYS REMEMBER THIS, THEY ARE ALL DESPICABLE SNAKE OIL SALESMEN

"They are neither virtuous nor wise. The developers are mostly cynical profiteers out to make a buck, who pull the necessary strings and grease the necessary palms to win their approvals. They are opportunists who travel to financially stressed rural areas and entice unsuspecting farmers to sign their lease agreements which neuter their rights to their own land. Most of the others are ill-informed and idealistic – and maybe a bit impulsive – who have no idea what they’re in for once the blades… Continue

A Wall Street Journal Repost, The Brewing Tempest Over Wind Power

The Brewing Tempest Over Wind Power

People living near turbines increasingly report sleep deprivation, headaches and vertigo. The wind lobby says there's no proof.

(Doesn't this sound like the smoking and asbestos issues of years past?)

By ROBERT BRYCE

Imagine this scenario: The oil and gas industry launches an aggressive global drilling program with a new type of well. Thousands of these new wells, once operational, emit a noxious… Continue

Big Wind, Big Lies

Lets not talk about the pseudo-green "bling" power potential of Big Wind. Lets talk about the legal process being used by Industrial Wind to site projects. Lets talk about corruption of the legal process in towns, collusion, and political stink at high levels. Lets talk about citizen free speech and transparent process, and breaches in it. Lets talk about an Industry that is in bed with present and past governors of Maine. Lets look at a town like Lincoln where citizens have to fight to the… Continue

The Big Wind Regatta

Many, many people believe in the 'green-ness' of industrial wind, and that makes opposing such developments an uphill battle all the way. As we who oppose the destruction of Maine's iconic mountains work hard to bring the facts to the people of Maine, multitudes are changing their opinions and joining us as we work to stop this misguided plan. In fact, I have not yet met a person who, once armed with truthful information backed by science and sound economics, didn't become a convert... unless… Continue

Is it "Attorney General Mills", or "First Wind Mills"?

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/
