Another Green Boondoggle

When the wind blows too hard, and there is not enough draw on the grid, the turbines have to be shut down.  That means that the wind producers can't make money, and they now are being PAID to shut down their turbines.  You just can't make this stuff up.  How inefficient!!!!!  How STUPID!!!!  What a waste.

14,000 Wind Turbines Abandoned in USA

There are currently more than 14,000 wind turbines that have been ABANDONED asross the USA.  I hope this is not the future of Maine.  With the subsidies likely being pulled at the end of this year, who is going to have to pay for removing the towers that have already been put up?  They needed 15 years to fund the removal costs according to Maine Law.  We are not there yet, but it is something to think about.  …

PPH/MST Re: Angus King defends his Wind Career

This may or may not be posted as a comment in the paper.  They are screening and it is "awaiting Moderation".

 

I don't begrudge anyone from starting up a new business that they think might improve the quality of life, create jobs, make a profit, improve technology nad make Maine a leader. But Industrial Wind does nothing of those things. Gov. King's own words prove it. "I didn't see how I could credibly talk about energy in Maine (as a Senate candidate) while I was in a…

Angus King Pickpocketed Us!

Another angle on the fraud and theft Angus and Chellie and Obma have done to us.  It's time to speak out and expose it.

It’s Time To Call Out The Pretenders

It’s time to call out the pretenders.  The article attached to this blog tells us it is time to start asking some deep questions about the alarmists that have an agenda.  The agenda is that gaining control over our economies is a factor of making energy so precious that the governments have to take control of them.  They have to set up agency upon agency to regulate the way we do business, and make it so expensive that no one can build a business to employ citizens, pay taxes, and build…

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/
