Here is how the BDN edited Dudley Gray letter to editor !

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER BUT KNOWLEDGE OF THE MEDIA GIVES US A BETTER WAY TO FIGHT POWER !  

Monique Thurston 

From Dudley Gray :

"The BDN mistakenly printed my piece on 03/11 and 03/13 and edited it as follows:

MY Title- "more electricity price Pain"

BDN Title  Alternatives failed us

Para 1. I wrote-"100's of thousands of solar panels and 1000 or more wind turbines have been installed"

edited: too many solar panels and wind turbines have been installed

Para2  BDN deleted entirely

I wrote "our public advocate,Mr. Harwood responded to this writer by blaming high natural gas  prices.Well,from a one month high of $8.41 per million BTU last August to the present March price of $2.45 should it not follow that the current price decline would announce an imminent supply price reduction to be reflected in our bills ?  I'm patiently waiting."

Para3 I wrote" creating a self service public boondoggle"

edited to What I think will be a self serving public boondoggle

Para 4. I Wrote "overturning the referendum"

edited:  overturning the referendum, as I expect

This is so typical of  BDN. Convert any opposing point of view to their agenda, turn mine into Milquetoast then run it

Thanks Arthur, My hometown newspaper "The. Ellsworth American printed it on -03/16. verbatim. The BDN has been an adversary of  my late Dad and me as well, since the 1960's. I will send it along with a  note to Susan Young editor

Dudley,hope you sent your comment to BDN! They must be directly confronted. They always treated anti wind  opposition with disdain.  They are a branch of " The Pravda Press,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/

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.
