First Wind Accepted New York State's Code of Ethics : Why is this conduct not expected in Maine?

Maine Needs This , Desperately...Maybe Alfond Should Should Read this?

If nothing else , he should try writing his own bills for the wind lobby (without using the words  verbatim   from  a Verrill Dana lawyer who works for First Wind).

Maine is Being Ripped up by a new Wall Street Derivatives Scheme called the " Yieldco"

Is This what "Green Power" really means to some Maine high level politicians and,

How long will Mainers allow themselves to be taken by   "the Yieldco"?

Remember that famous movie's  saying about "Plastics" ?

Well, the wind scam's   only future may indeed be  "In Yieldcos", but trust me, they  will always  try  to lower their  financial  risk by screwing the Initial Public Offering investor .

The Wind Liars Continue to Lie Openly and Poor Mainers will soon Pay More for Their Lies!.

Two of the earliest  industrial wind  projects in Maine , to this day, produce a fraction of their potential fickle intermittent trickle of electrons!, WHY? Do your representatives care? (or are they part of the problem?)

What wind  turbines do produce at full capacity is Renewable Energy Credits for the pseudo  market created by  your government via  the likes of DE Shaw   and other elite derivative investors on Wall Street. Those like Alfond,Angus King, Sussman,Kurt…

The Lies Continue.....Maine , a very politically dirty little state

After years of dealing with the wind issue, I can say with sadness that Maine is a very dirty little state, politically.

It is a shame how unctuous political elites have manipulated the legislative process as it concerns the wind scam. 

Governor LePage should immediately place a halt to all…

Who First Wind is, (down to the basics )

First Wind et al is comprised of a cadre of well connected subsidy seeking liars, who deceive and pervert the permitting process for their own ends.

They deserve to be removed from Maine's permitting process as contenders for any other projects in Maine.  

This was a good wake up call for the industry as well. They have everything on their side except the truth, and…

Wind Warriors vs "The Big Lie" of Wind

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

Why Do Wind Lies Die Slowly? The answer from the expert.

Why do the Big Lies of Big Wind persist , and why are  perpetrators like First Wind successful?

You ask "Why?" here's a quote that explains ....."..... in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they…

THE ALLURE OF TECHNO-GLAMOUR (from the WSJ)

When Robert J. Samuelson published a Newsweek column last month arguing that high-speed rail is "a perfect example of wasteful spending masquerading as a respectable social cause," he cited cost figures and potential ridership to demonstrate that even the rosiest scenarios wouldn't justify the investment. He made a…

Confirmed again, and again,The Big Liars at First Wind

Oakfield Left Blowing in the Wind

An unprecedented number of articles recently published in newspapers across this state, and beyond,

expose the lesser known side of the wind energy industry. Political connections, questionable business

practices, and general disregard for the well being of those in proximity to their wind developments

have become consistent criticisms leveled against what had previously been a public relations success

story.

This creates an… Continue

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

KING , The Self-Server Snake Oil Salesman

Mr. King, and his son Angus King III, are the best examples of scheming, subsidy pigs that Maine may have ever seen. They are one of the reasons that this country is going broke.

They never had the financial capacity to fund Independence Wind from the start. The only way they can try to make millions from it is to remove money from tax payers all over this state and country, with feckless wind power scheming. Ask Mr. King what his plans are for this Green Power? Do you think he really… Continue

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/
