|The Maine Judicial Supreme Court scuttled a $100 million wind project planned for Penobscot County, with 16 wind turbines generating 48 megawatts of electricity, because it was found to impinge on scenic views from nine nearby lakes. Around the same time,Portland, Maine voters decisively rejected a controversial ordinance meant to protect scenic views of Casco Bay threatened by intruding building developments.|
That's extremely interesting, Kathleen Nelson. Well worth researching.
So what's this I read in my local Vermont paper today:
USDA Giving $4.6 Million to Conserve Western Maine Mountains
"Augusta, Maine (AP) - The U.S. Department of Agriculture is providing $4.6 million in support of conservation efforts in the western mountains of Maine.
Members of Maine's congressional delegation who announced the funding say the money will assist private landowners in improving fish and wildlife habitats between the White Mountains of New Hampshire and Moosehead Lake.
The Trust for Public Land will lead the project along with several partnering organizations.
Sens. Angus King, an independent, and Susan Collins, a Republican, say the project will increase financial and technical assistance for private forest owners. They say it will also provide incentives for managing forests for habitat diversity."
Maybe someone up there in Maine ought to find out where this money is going. It is an election year you know, and public pacification is the name of the game when you want the obvious losers to score a few points. It stinks like weasel piss.
