Multi-Millions Gone With The Wind in Massachusetts That Installed Known Stolen Technology

As a Massachusetts resident I feel sorry for our Northern neighbors burdened by our policies.

It's pretty bad when 60 Minutes finds interest in the renewables sector here.

Jan. 2016

Massachusetts' American Superconductor AMSC became the subject of CBS 60 minutes “The Great Brain Robbery” regarding the theft by China’s Sinovel of AMSC wind turbine technology.  This is an International industrial espionage thriller yet to be written. …

Massachusetts' GREEN SWAMP needs to be DRAINED first, Mr. President

I'm probably too annoyed to write about the most recent of MA Public Officials writing green rules that ultimately benefit them.  But, this swamp drained will benefit New Englanders and silence is the voice of complicity. 

There were zero comments on this Boston Globe 1/18/17 piece I read this AM which demonstrates very troubling public apathy.

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/
