Blitzkrieg in Maine - Could Triple the Number of Statewide Turbines Overnight and Then Some

This is a full assault that would forever change Maine. The wind law must be changed and local ordinances must be passed if Maine is not going to be totally raped on our watch.

Just some thoughts !

We have exceeded our Federal Requirements for the State of Maine as to our Renewable and Green energy. Now we are being USED and paying for our own eventual demise to provide the requirements for others in New England that have to pull in our respective legislatures and with corporations to utilize Maine as an Industrial Energy Farm or thoroughfare for Canadian Power. Now that any marketable timber is minimal to the point the paper companies are collapsing from insufficient resources and other portions of the forest product markets are soon to follow all that remains is the Biomass (Burn what may remain attitude) which is clearing the way for Wind swept ridgelines and open areas for Solar.  It is High time for a call to remove Maine from this process starting with any law that promotes or allows these insanities to continue. We are a State separate from other states, because we did not want to be a part of a way of life controlled by Mass., yet what they do not control by their legislature they indirectly influence our legislature or utilize corporate power and monetary influences upon our legislature, elderly, working class, poor.
   Local Ordinances ARE needed, prior to the event beginning and to the point where when there are sufficient communities that have these ordinances it becomes clear to the state and our legislators, that this behavior from a Non-Person - Non-Citizen will not be tolerated without first local permissions then the state as a whole. To a point where reversals are in order and prosecutions of those that brought this to be are appropriately punished. Taking by force by any means is Rape. Creation of a poverty state places the state in a position of desperation and submission. 

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.
