Massachusetts' energy NEEDS? I don't think so. Rather the "need" is simply a government mandate engineered by politicians and regulators while the average ratepayer in the state, lied to by the Massachusetts media is oblivious. Anybody think any of those politicians are ON THE TAKE?
Given Quebec’s excellent wind resource and the willingness of dozens of its communities to host wind farms, incorporating wind energy into…Continue
Both Senators want to decorate our mountains and coast with wind installations and transmission - but somehow the article missed this part. How can you be committed to outdoor recreation and support these hideous contraptions? Answer: You can't.
From Maine’s lengthy coastline to its vast forest — and everywhere in between — the outdoor recreational economy is a major driver that injects $8.2 billion in spending to the state…Continue
Just more painful proof that wind companies can't be trusted and there is no such thing as too much financial oversight when these con-artists attempt to operate in Maine. Where is the reaction from the Maine legislature to SunEdison's collapse, given Maine was ground zero for First Wind/SunEdison's wind installations?
SunEdison Inc. won final approval for a bankruptcy plan that will leave what was once the world’s…Continue

The backlash is so fierce that Big Wind has begun suing small towns to force them to accept wind projects. ......The rural resistance to the land-devouring, subsidy-fueled sprawl of Big Wind doesn’t fit the narrative – endlessly repeated by the Sierra Club, Natural Resources Defense Council, Greenpeace and their myriad allies in the liberal media — that wind energy is “green.” Nevertheless, the numbers tell the tale. Since 2015, about 170 government…Continue
Maine needs to wake up and do the same for both lake and ocean shores and all of the interior views which are the foundation for our tremendously vital tourism industry. If the so called representatives, so called environmental groups and media were not on the take, wind power in Maine would not have a chance.
The amendment restricts the use of federal funds to conduct a site assessment or construction and operation plans for wind turbines…Continue
Russia’s Financial Support for Anti-Fracking Groups Is No Coincidence
July 21, 2017 4:00 AM @AUSTINYACK
Aware that fracking could devastate the Russian economy, the Kremlin has secretly financed environmentalist groups across the globe.
In 2014, after multiple European countries banned fracking following protests, NATO secretary general Fogh Anders Rasmussen warned that “Russia, as part of their sophisticated information and disinformation…Continue

Few may be aware of the aggressive role the State played in pushing the project on unsuspecting citizens, and the enormous cost of taking it down.
A survey carried out on behalf of the John Muir Trust (JMT) found that 55% of respondents were “less likely” to venture into areas of the countryside industrialised by giant turbines, electricity pylons and super-quarries. ...The poll has rekindled calls for Scottish ministers to increase protection for wild and scenic areas that, it is argued, will protect rural tourism businesses.…Continue

The Billionaire’s Club gains access to a close knit network of likeminded funders, environmental activists, and government bureaucrats who specialize in manufacturing phony “grassroots” movements and in promoting bogus propaganda disguised as science and news to spread an anti-fossil energy message to the unknowing public. Not only is the system incredibly…Continue
