May 24, 2019

Governor Janet Mills has declared September 23rd through September 27th, 2019 as National Clean Energy Week to encourage individuals, local governments, corporations, and other organizations in Maine to champion renewable energy solutions that create clean energy jobs and mitigate climate change.

“Climate change threatens everything that is fundamental to us as a people and as a state,” said Governor Mills. “Tackling our overreliance on fossil fuels, reducing our carbon emissions, and transitioning our households, businesses and government agencies to renewable energy will create clean energy jobs, strengthen our economy, and mitigate the impacts of climate change. I encourage all Maine people to join with me in observing National Clean Energy Week and recommitting ourselves to a cleaner, greener future.”

Maine is one of 23 states to formally recognize National Clean Energy Week 2019.

Governor Mills’ proclamation follows the announcement that she will be the first sitting governor of Maine to deliver remarks before the United Nations (UN) about Maine’s effort to fight climate change during the UN Climate Action Summit 2019.

Governor Mills has made tackling climate change and ushering in renewable energy a key priority of her Administration. She has signed legislation to increase Maine’s Renewable Portfolio Standard to 80 percent by 2030 and set a goal of 100 percent renewable energy by 2050; set a goal of installing 100,000 new heat pumpsby 2025 and expanded availability of electric vehicles; and established mandates to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 45 percent below 1990 levels by 2030 and 80 percent by 2050 and created the bipartisan Maine Climate Council to provide recommendations to meet these targets.

The full text of Governor Mills’ proclamation is below.


WHEREAS, Maine is committed to a clean energy future and enjoys abundant forms of renewable energy that power homes and businesses across the State; and

WHEREAS, the generation of power from renewable sources, including forms such as hydro, wood, wind, and solar, plays an important role in meeting the needs of our homes and businesses; and

WHEREAS, Maine has increased its Renewable Portfolio Standard to 80 percent by 2030 and has a goal of 100 percent renewable energy by 2050; and

WHEREAS, Maine leads New England in wind-powered generation; and

WHEREAS, the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy ranked Maine 14th in its 2018 State Energy Efficiency Scorecard; and

WHEREAS, Maine supports the strategic electrification of heating and transportation, establishing the goal of installing 100,000 new heat pumps by 2025 as well as announcing initiatives to expand availability of electric vehicles and charging infrastructure; and

WHEREAS, Maine has established mandates to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 45 percent below 1990 levels by 2030 and 80 percent by 2050 and created the Maine Climate Council to provide recommendations to meet these targets; and

WHEREAS, Maine’s clean energy jobs grow local economies and boost economic development; and

WHEREAS, National Clean Energy Week provides an opportunity for individuals, local governments, corporations, and other organizations in Maine to champion common sense solutions that address the United States’ evolving economic and energy needs;

NOW, THEREFORE, be it resolved that I, Janet T. Mills, Governor of the State of Maine, do hereby proclaim September 23rd through September 27th, 2019 as

NATIONAL CLEAN ENERGY WEEK

throughout the State of Maine, and I urge all citizens to recognize this observance.

AKA as "National Nuclear Power Week"

An overt declaration like "Clean Energy Week" will go a long way in producing a spate of media coverage. However, these days the media are often simply government controlled. Whether we're talking about the media's controversial defense of the official JFK story (Warren Report) or the media's oft cheer leading for perpetual wars, rest assured, powerful covert government forces have long been at work. "National Security" has been a long time favorite to justify dubious wars and mammoth profits for the military-industrial-security complex. "Climate Change" arguably raises the ante higher as "International Security", an all purpose way for the power elite to gain global control at the expense of the taxpayer and freedom lover. Do not fall for it. The media are not your friends but rather controlled shills for the power elite (represented in both political parties), controlled specifically by the "permanent bureaucracy", which by the way, is not limited to the U.S. The dream in going to a full globalist society is for its engineers to become bigger fish in a bigger pond, totally at the expense of most of the people in the world. They'll only get away with it if we let them.

Hannah Pingree on the Maine expedited wind law

Hannah Pingree - Director of Maine's Office of Innovation and the Future

"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 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.
