Let's see how this goes. The wind industry's rigged polls tell us a majority of people like wind power. Yet greater than 90% of votes on moratoriums in Maine towns go against wind. In other words, when people stop to study the issue, they quickly see that wind is nothing but a fraudulent house of cards harmful to human health, the environment and the economy. Or as the wind industry itself has privately acknowledged in discussing the public's views on wind power "the things people are educated about are a real deficit for us".
The Columbia moratorium was approved by a 28-16 vote at the annual town meeting on Monday night. The town’s Planning Board sought the moratorium in order to allow time to consider enacting local guidelines for the project, Selectman Mark Howe said Wednesday.
“It gives us time to put together an ordinance,” said Howe.
The Apex Clean Energy project may involve more than 30 wind turbines and several pieces of property, according to Howe.
The firm also has worked on the First Wind turbine energy projects in Maine at Mars Hill and Danforth.
