There have been several times when comments I have made have been "reviewed" and rejected.  I have taken them back and revised them slightly and then they have been posted.  I use Disquis instead of Facebook.  Last week I was replying to a particularly smarmy lib who takes delight in being belittling and nasty.  He has been on for a long time and has always been the same. "Yessah!"  I think you know who I mean.  I contacted the BDN about it and I think you know I have always been a responsible poster.  I brought that to the attention of the BDN Editor, they reviewed what I said, and posted my reply immediately.  I also did not see any more posts from our friend, who always has a smarmy reply.

This "news" site has removed several of my comments about Iowa's coal use & CO2 emissions going up despite increased wind penetration and relatively static demand over the past decade.  Also comment about Habitat Fragmentation, bird/bat kill, redundancy that ratepayers/taxpayers are footing the bill for, etc.... 

DIRTBAGS!!!

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/
