A LOOK BACK AT 2015 - THINGS TO BE THANKFUL FOR!

I'm happy to say goodbye to 2015 - Especially after Congress threw every American taxpayer under the bus by giving $700 billion dollars in tax breaks to corporate America and wealthy Americans! Let's not forget next November that Maine's entire Congressional delegation voted for these tax breaks - and to ship American oil overseas.

But here in Maine we do have a few things to be thankful for - and a few people to thank!

Thank you Kay and Alan Michka, Rep. Larry Dunphy and Karen Bessey-Pease for fighting the fight and bringing us LD 828 - which gives citizens in the Unorganized Territories equal rights to fight against wind - allbeit only for 6 months! Your efforts have allowed 14 UT's in the Moosehead Lake Region to petition to opt out of the expedited wind zone! And they will apply to do so on January 4th!

Thank you Kay and Gary Campbell and Kevin Gurall and everyone involved with PPDLW for fighting the hard fight and winning the battle to stop the Bowers Mountain Project. You showed us that local resistance works - and scenic impact still matters in Maine! You have given every local group additional tools to fight wind and provided advice and counsel.  We now have a Maine Supreme Court ruling to back resistance up. 

And always and ever, thank you Monique and Steve Thurston, and Long Islander for leading the charge and keeping us all informed and armed to fight the hard fight against wind! We just can't thank you enough!

 - Lets all keep fighting the fight!

So on to 2016-

Happy New Year Everyone

I'm happy to say goodbye to 2015, always with the proviso that by January 1, 2017 we may have come to look upon 2015 as "happy days."  Aside from that I share Pineo Girl's gratitude.

Thanks for the reminder that we do have things to be grateful for.  We all get discouraged, but there are bright spots in this fight.  One of the brightest for me is knowing that there are others who see the big picture and understand the fraud being foisted on the American public.  Thanks to all who fight for the truth, and who fight for Maine's mountains.  Happy 2016 to all.

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."

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.
