A Mainer whose Family Dates Back to 1698 Writes "Ten Ways to Kill Big Wind"

Mike Bond is a Maine native whose family arrived here in 1698. Although he now lives out of state, he returns to Maine regularly. He has done considerable environmental work in Maine and beyond and would be happy to help us out in keeping these horrible wind projects out of his and our beloved state.

Please read the following document from Mr. Bond entitled "Ten Ways to Kill Big Wind" and heed it well. It is made available in both Word and PDF:

Ten%20Ways%20to%20Kill%20Big%20Wind%20Mar%207%202013%20Nat%20Wind%2...

Ten%20Ways%20to%20Kill%20Big%20Wind%20Mar%207%202013%20Nat%20Wind%2...

Thank you for taking a hard look at this.

good one..and Gary Kay and Kevin with David and others' help did just that with Bowers..we have done our best with oak field but maybe we could ahve done better..it should be STOPPED..the lakes are way too beautiful for this ruination..

Whetstone is correct..it is theft of our trees, our views, our solitude, our health, our peace, our family gatherings, our tradition and history, our animals and birds and wildlife in general..our rights.

Industrial Wind Development in Maine's countryside, that which keeps us all here and/or brought us all here, is the same as poaching, THEFT.

Time to put an end to it once and for all. The heinous expedited wind law, which was in essence written by the out of state wind industry, must be repealed.

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.
