Corporate wrongdoing by Volkswagon is by Financial Times compared to Enron.  Interesting to note government favor, hiding massive losses, have much to do with ENRON that launched commercial wind in the U.S.  How coincidental that former ENRON execs have reappeared the wind sector?

'Cape Wind Project: A Tale of Crony Environmentalism (Part 4) The Rest of the Story' by Christine Morabito

Rarely does a journalist search out the facts about wind projects that deliver adverse impacts but no benefits.  It would be great if there were more like Christine Morabito, brave enough to report the facts. Crony environmentalism behind Big Wind delivers benefits to carpet baggers and rent seekers feeding from the public trough.  It's vindicating to read the truth about wind ME media is loathe to report.

Toxic wind, rare earth minerals, carcinogens, radioactive waste, extortion, weapons trafficking, murder and executions

To the friendly readers at Citizens' Task Force on Wind Power-Maine:

As an anti-wind campaigner since 2004, I was initially solely concerned about damaged aesthetics associated with offshore proposed Cape Wind, now struggling for survival :)  For the past decade, I have been researching wind energy as a private citizen, and I'm encouraged that finally the truth about this ENRON business model is surfacing.  I extend credit and thanks to all who have looked behind the…

The Great Wind Energy Bait and Switch

The Great Wind Energy Bait and Switch is a scenario that should have been avoided. 

Ratepayers have been assured by the industry that wind energy is a reliable energy

source that would reduce electricity costs, and these promises were parroted by our

policy makers. Only after spending billions of public dollars on wind, we are being

informed by the beneficiaries of our largess,…

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/

Sign up today and lend your voice and presence to the steadily rising tide that will soon sweep the scourge of useless and wretched turbines from our beloved Maine countryside. For many of us, our little pieces of paradise have been hard won. Did the carpetbaggers think they could simply steal them from us?

We have the facts on our side. We have the truth on our side. All we need now is YOU.
