Let us all vow that Rollins the the last project to get built in our state!!!

Let us all vow that Rollins will be the last wind project to get built in our state!!!

Today is Thanksgiving. I give thanks to all the wonderful people I have met in our cause to stop the proliferation of industrial wind across our beautiful state. I give thanks for the local victories we have attained as well as the progress we are making state-wide with our ever increasing visibility. Special thanks go to those who have helped to fight the tough battle in Lincoln Lakes. Let us all vow that Rollins will be the last industrial wind project to get built in our state!!!

One of our Friends of Lincoln Lakes has shared a few photos with Gary and me and I share them here as a reminder of what we will be destroying in Lincoln Lakes. Larry Arthers lives on Caribou Pond, at the base of Rollins Mt. Below is a photo of a summer idyll of Larry and his dog this summer, relaxing at home. In the upper part of the photo is a bit of Rollins Mt.ridgeline:

On Thanksgiving Day, Larry sent us the picture of Reed & Reed's crane, put in place to start erecting turbines on that ridge:

Wherever in Maine you are, dedicate yourself to making sure that you never, ever have to see Reed & Reed's crane on any ridge or mountain near you and your neighbors!!!

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/

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.
