Biden goes nuclear to save the planet. What's Mills to do??

The Biden administration is quietly admitting it can't achieve zero-emissions without a national fleet of firm, reliable, thermal power plants. Are they talking nuclear power? To quote from the article I've posted below, it sounds like Joe has seen the light.

Reality has abruptly dawned on the technocrats and climate zealots that the net zero scheme to run our economy with wind and solar is a fools errand. One practical reality, the shear scale of landmass required to achieve zero-emissions with wind and solar has hit home. To keep the net zero ball rolling, Biden is quickly pivoting the discussion to include subsidies (PTC) for NPP - similar to the decades long handouts to wind and solar. Joe is also getting pressure from his cronies in organized labor who are licking their chops at the prospects of cashing in on lucrative contracts for NNP upgrades and possibly new construction going forward. The punch bowl of funding laid out in the infamous boondoggle called the infrastructure bill has the usual suspects fighting for a place in line at the ATM.  But the bottom line is clear - they can't get to zero with unreliable, intermittent renewable schemes like wind, solar, and costly battery packs.

So what's Gov. Wind Mills going to do now? According to her dear leader in DC, relying on 100% renewable energy to power your economy at net zero is not doable, Destroying Maine's iconic ridgelines with hideous wind turbines or littering valuable, scenic farmland with highly-inefficient solar plants while turning Maine into a high voltage transmission Xmas tree won't cut it.

Someone needs to ask her what she's has in mind now that Joe is going nuclear.

Newt Gingrich: In My Mind “There Was No Question” all of the Close Battleground States Were Stolen in 2020 Election (VIDEO)

The tide truly is turning when Newt can go on FOX News and not be lectured for making such a bold and honest statement. Of course, Maria Bartiromo is not your average FOX News host.

What do we think of NECEC? how about Seth Berry and Nicole Grohoski plans to get Pine Tree power Auth?  How about Gov Mills and with Berry and Grohoski and now Rick Bennett on board with a public broadband auth. Gallo[ping Socialism as I have said time and again

Penny, they definitely have Joe Biden in a vice and the Party of Davos is all in on the CCP way of doing business. Not a word from those goons complaining of the devastation and havoc their virus has inflicted on the world - not a peep. Taking back our country is my priority. Be well.

Good question, Richard McDonald.  Who are Greta's advisors?  They are falling down on the job.  Shame on them! And more to the point, shame on China.  But what does the CCP care, they own us, or will very shortly unless we smarten up.

Mills's plan calls for 141,000 EV's by 2040. As of 2019, Maine had 1.6 mm vehicles (all classes) on the road. CO2 puking China will eliminate any CO2 reductions by Maine in seconds. A new report stated that it would take 16 days for China to negate Australia's proposed annual emission reductions in 16 days.  Why isn't Greta in Beijing shaker her finger at XI?

It took how many years to figure this out? Fifty?

What? They don't believe their own propaganda? What genius spilled the beans?

But I've got bad news. Even nuclear won't solve the transportation problem which is 30 - 50% of the carbon issue. According to one climate forum, Maine needs to sell 240,000 electric vehicles by 2030 just to keep up. How about using an ion drive to make the Earth spin faster so the winds will blow harder and ... ?

Well there is always geothermal ... ?

Never mind.

The Brits have plans to build 8 compact modular reactors based upon a Rolls Royce design taken from  their nuclear sub experience. They're built in a factory and delivered to the site - no massive construction project/cost overruns. Costs about $1 billion for 800MW. We'll spend $1 billion screwing around building some useless transmission corridors to interconnect useless wind and solar.

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."

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT

******** 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.
