Borealis Press: "Those Of You Against Windmills Are Dumb Beyond Thought"

Maine geeting card company Borealis Press says on its website:

"Objecting to windmills when the alternative is fossil or nuclear fuel is dumb beyond thought."

Apparently 100% of the electricity that Surry, ME based Borealis Press uses derives from wind energy. I guess like the Stetson mountain disfigurers at Harvard they know how to cherrypick just those electrons in the grid stream that are generated by wind turbines. (HINT: They're the more expensive ones).

So next time you are in a store and see a rack of Borealis' greeting cards such as their Quote Unquote line, please know that they are made with only the very best electrons!

I wonder whether this card house has heard they may be supporting a house of cards.

OK, I'm off to design a card with the quote "It smarts to be dumb". Maybe we can all send it to them.

Oops... that's not Steven, that's me. Karen. I'll have to tell Mr. Grumbles so he doesn't get embarrassed to learn I sent x's and o's in his name... snicker.

Helloooooo Freemont! You are the perfect pick-me-up this morning! :o)

Keep doing what you're doing, won't you? Spread some of that common sense around. You can never have too much, and it's contagious. As people listen to the facts and learn, they'll stand up with us, and help us regain our power to do the RIGHT thing, and not what the wind industry and our governments tell us we should do.

Hope the morning in Dixfield looks as fine as it does here in Kingfield! xoxo Kaz

"Dumb Beyond Thought", ay?

It seems that the author of that comment has not taken the time to educate himself about the FACTS pertaining to the push for industrial wind in Maine. If he had, he would understand that those of us who are opposing this plan are anything but dumb. Rather, we are common-sensical, patriotic and desirous of obtaining FACTUAL data to prove that industrial wind is anything other than a race for American tax-payer subsidies.

I was in favor of 'wind energy' at the outset... because I BELIEVED--without question-- the lines which the industry and our government spouted. But a careful examination of the FACTS has caused me to adjust my thinking. BIG TIME!!

Mainers (and Americans) should not put their faith in the words of those who stand to gain financially from industrial wind. Rather, they should listen to unbiased scientists and economists who have studied this topic without prejudice.

The facts are readily available. Please take the time to listen, read and learn. Those who question 'the establishment' are not dumb beyond thought. We are thoughtful, so that we will not be taken as 'dumb'. Knowledge is power. And with power comes the ability to shape our own destinies.

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


(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 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?" 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.”

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.
