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.
