Another voice is heard from - read Phillip Conkling's op-ed in today's on line BDN about the environment and off shore wind. The misinformation never stops coming.
I know it's the holidays, but go to the McLaughlin Group site - go to the bottom of the Homepage and use the "make a comment" feature to thank them for talking about bird/bat mortality as one of the biggest lies of 2013 - encourage them to up the ante on big wind - tell them our story - you never know. Tell them about Angus Kings' wind interest and his son's involvement w/FW - they may say more about it in upcoming broadcasts. Thanks and Happy Holidays!!

Is there some in CTOW who can respond to the NELA letter to set the record straight. We're up to our ears in press work here at FMM and would appreciate someone taking that on. We can't let this stuff go unchallenged. Allowing the public to think/believe that windmills in ME reduces pollution from the Midwest is extremely is a complete falsehood and needs to be called out. Selling REC to Midwest polluters is what's coming from ME wind developers - Thanks. RM

Friends of Maine's Mountains calls on Maine Audubon to disclose its financial ties to industrial wind and retract its new report that fails to…Continue
I'm sure it's due to the Wyoming case where Duke Energy was held criminally (convicted) liable for killing eagles at a number of their wind farms. So, the President is going to ask Congress to pass a 30 year exemption for the developers so they can kill these poor animals without any recourse. I wonder if the developers in Maine have secured their permits to kill eagles - maybe we should call and ask the Audubon Society to comment.
