Cash strapped taxpayers pressured to leave South Portland by costly environmental and climate action

Unrest growing in South Portland as political divide widens

Some frustrated residents say the City Council is unrelenting in its pursuit of costly progressive goals at a time when cash-strapped taxpayers fear they may have to leave the city.

The council is raising hackles with two proposals in particular: one is a tree protection ordinance that would be the most restrictive in Maine and require the city to hire additional staff to enforce it; the other is a $4.5 million bond issue on the November ballot that would be used to buy open space. Critics note that South Portland already has plenty of trees, here in the most forested state, and it already owns or manages 375 acres of parkland, far exceeding the national average of 245 acres among cities its size, according to the National Recreation and Park Association.

Pride said councilors support the proposed tree ordinance and the $4.5 million open space bond referendum because preserving trees and open space has been identified as a community goal to fight climate change.

"Pennsylvania Disgusts Me The Most"

Seven minute interview with trend spotting data analyst who points out that Pennsylvania had an incredibly reliable predictor that Trump, who won the state in 2016, would win in 2020. That predictor is that between 2016 and 2020, Republican to Democrat new voter registrations ran 21 to 1 in Pennsylvania.

Those open spaces are needed for tent cities, and RV parks, to house those evicted from their houses.

They will be called climate refugees, and likely will qualify for various government poverty programs

The rich who are stupid enough to stay, will pay through the nose; they are the milked climate victims.

The misguided idiots of the city council of South Portland must be democrats because only democrats believe in the myth of global warming and therefore they will wring the pockets dry of the taxpayers who will flee in great number to avoid further taxation without representation.  Property values regardless of the location, location, location will plummet because nobody with even half a brain will want to willingly pay increased taxes that in the end, serve no purpose whatsoever.  Global warming is in the same league as critical race theory, another Marxist ideology that snuck into the classrooms over the past few years to indoctrinate and further segregate humanity.  Get rid of the democrats in the next election and watch the entire area return to normal.

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/
