Censored Post --Concerning Property Values, Wind turbines, and Blatant Liars!(This post was censored out of Ellsworth American BTW, so enjoy!)

Blatant Unrepentant Liars

I recently sold a property 2.2 miles from a wind project at 1/2 its accessed evaluation( and I was lucky to sell it at all)
Anyone who believes First Wind/SunEdison / Terraform Power is "nummah than a hake" or a past patient of a frontal lobotomy. Remember this too , infra sound (low frequency noise emitted by these massive feckless turbines) is heard and annoying up to 2.5 miles by many people. Those within 4000 feet (the golden distance for litigation from damages), are sometimes harmed by the noise generated.See the book "Wind Turbine Syndrome" see Nina Pierpoint MD.Also see Killing Maine by Mike Bond at Amazon.com.

There indeed is a place reserved for liars and con artists like Baldwin, and it is called Hades , where he and the wind industry belong.
Also please remember this , sellers and abutters of wind projects often cannot disclose their losses because of legal settlements that have "Squelch Clauses" designed by the wind company, so the loss is kept secret.

What was the post that was to have been censored....... anyone have it that can display it here, or did I miss it?

The Ellsworth American has been reporting accurately on wind and I am surprised they would censor anyone's posts.

I wrote it to DOWNEAST MAGAZINE, since they live off of advertising for scenic estates....got a reply.

If you want action, forget edlets; write the letter to the top ten realtors selling real estate with views of wind farms......then you'll get action!

Suggest you write this as a letter to the editor and send it in.

Readers need to hear individual experience to believe it.

For their hidden slaughter to wildlife and rigged research, industry representatives deserve no more respect than an unrepentant child molester.

Hi all and esp Gary...thanks for that post.

DOCUMENTATION: PROPERTY VALUES, TOURISM IMPACTS

 re property values, finally an unbiased study (but still does not tackle a realtor survey that would collect realtor experiences as they fail to sell properties or must dramatically lower prices. Find a donor who could fund a professional report collecting first person realtor accounts even if anonymous? (ie. Lincoln area realtor)...) 

“...operational wind farm developments reduce prices in locations where the turbines are visible.” Gone With the Wind: Valuing the Local Impacts of Wind Turbines Through House Prices, S. Gibbons, London School of Economics, 2013.

http://www.theguardian.com/money/2014/apr/08/windfarms-reduce-house-prices-compensation

And finally, a decent survey on tourism impacts, one that is not industry biased or coming from a country that has invested too much in wind to conduct a genuine report.

http://www.mcofs.org.uk/assets/pdfs/mcofs-wind-farm-survey-report_2014.pdf

“Two thirds of respondents (68%) agreed that due to the presence of wind farms there were places in Scotland that were already less appealing for walking and climbing.”

 

“Nearly three quarters of respondents (73%) would choose accommodation without a wind farm view.”

From FORBES:

"

Thus, it can take 4-5 wind plants to produce the same amount of electricity as a single fossil fuel plant.

The U.S. Department of Energy has concluded that generating 20% of electricity (which is likely the highest we could go, seehere) with land-based wind installations would demand at least 20,000 square miles, or the size of Maryland and Vermont combined. By comparison, all U.S. nuclear power plants, which produce around 20% of power, occupy only 110 square miles.

One headline is indicative: “Wind farm ‘needs 700 times more land’ than fracking site to produc... 

The main reason industrial wind farms take up so much land is that each turbine can be spaced a half mile or more apart. And bigger, taller, and more spaced apart turbines are better because they can generate more electricity. Standing 650 tall (200 meters), these giant wind turbines dwarf nearby buildings. Along with the complexity of siting, this explains why getting wind farms built is much harder in real life than in the Sierra Club’s mind."

"

But, there’s a heavily funded public relations machine to make Americans think that wind power doesn’t impact property values, and it’s every bit as influential as the “Big Oil” the anti-fossil fuel movement purports to be so against.

Renewable energy and the “environment” are big businesses (see the Volkswagen emissions scandal for proof) and they include not just energy producing companies but also various agencies, interest groups, and even university researchers. Their grant money and careers are at stake."

Sun Edison cries poverty when looking for TIF's yet somehow has money to buy off an ever increasing number of so called environmental groups in Maine.

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/
