Al Gore's Tentacles in Friends of Katahdin Woods and Waters?

Looking at the board of directors of recently formed Friends of Katahdin Woods and Waters shows that one of the board members is Peter Knight, New York, NY, a Founding Partner of Generation Investment Management which focuses on sustainable investing strategies in public and private markets. This company was founded by Internet creator and hypocritical carbon crusader, Al Gore, who is also their chairman.

Some of the other board members include:

- Cathy Johnson, head attorney for wind shilling NRCM

- Darron Collins, president of carbon crazed College of the Atlantic

- Kim Elliman, CEO of the Open Space Institute and on the board of the wind cheer leading Wilderness Society

- Ken Olson, former Executive Director of The Nature Conservancy of Connecticut (aka "Big Green" the corporate greenwashing sellout)

- Simon Roosevelt, organizer of the Catalyst Dinner, a conference in New York City bringing together world leaders in climate change policy and science with a group of the largest US hedge fund managers.

- Jeremy Sheaffer, Maine State Director at the wind cheer leading Wilderness Society

Other listed board members do not seem to be associated with wind shilling organizations and are well likely commited to the Katahdin region. But it appears that the environmental left has gotten a good jump on populating a number of board positions, as is their MO these days with many of the environmental groups in Maine.

What Does This Have To Do With Wind Power?

It could have everything to do with wind power. One of the big selling points used in promoting this national monument was that it would bring tourism to towns in the Katahdin region such as Sherman, Stacyville, Herseytown and Patten. Unlike Millinocket, these towns receive very little Baxter State Park traffic and could potentially become gateway communities for the monument. This was indeed a big part of the sell. However, if Friends of Katahdin Woods & Waters is serious about building these tourism opportunities  it will fight tooth and nail to stop the tourism-deterring wind complexes that for years (dating back to First Wind) has been on the drawing boards for the tiny hilltops in these towns. It's questionable that this would happen if enough board members have sold their souls to the climate change devil, i.e., the Wall Street globalist crowd which has planned its financial future on exploiting the scam.

It is no surprise that the environmental left has burrowed into the "Friends of Katahdin Woods & Waters". One of the persons who led the effort to create the monument was David Farmer, the deputy chief of staff for former Gov John Baldacci, father of Maine's expedited wind law. Farmer is for WIND, WIND, WIND. Rest assured when an application goes in for wind turbines near Katahdin Woods & Waters National Monument, David Farmer will not be fighting them.

Having received at least three email pr pieces about Gore's latest film ... and responding by sending list of reasons why Industrial Wind turbines are not a viable/sustainable alternative directly to Gore at Generation Investment Mgmt. (the only place he could be accessed)- I have had zero response. 

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.
