BDN - Yet Another Wind Moratorium in Maine Voted In

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".

Voters in Washington County town approve wind power moratorium

EXCERPTS:

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.

The citizens of these towns chose to learn about the WIND Industry and all the harm it inflicts on Mainers. 43 towns is a lot of citizens that chose to act on a local level.  The citizens of these 43 towns do not travel to Augusta to speak to you.  They do not e-mail of write you.  They are trusting you to follow their lead and stop Industrial WIND in Maine.

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.
