Lisa Linowes: The founders of Windaction.org have launched the Wildlife, Energy & Community Coalition (WECC).


Join the Wildlife, Energy & Community Coalition

Many of you may already be aware that that the founders of Windaction.org have launched the Wildlife, Energy & Community Coalition (WECC). 


WHAT IS WECC? WECC is an alliance of grassroots environmental and community organizations, scientists, and conservationists working to protect communities and wildlife threatened by irresponsible energy development – specifically industrial renewable energy projects. 

WHERE CAN YOU FIND US? We’re on the web at www.wecprotect.org or you can like us on Facebook here. Our Frequently Asked Questions page provides more detail on what WECC is and what we're looking to accomplish.

WHO CAN BECOME A MEMBER OF WECC? Anyone who is working to stop industrial renewable energy projects and supports others who are doing the same is invited to be a member of WECC. To be a member, we ask that you align with Our Mission and agree to help other WECC members in their efforts. You can meet many of our current WECC members by visiting our members’ page. Unfortunately, we’re so busy keeping up with the high interest that our members’ page is a little out-of-date but we’re working as fast as we can to get everyone listed. If you're a member and do not see your name on the members' page please check back again soon or contact us at energywildlife@gmail.com

HOW TO JOIN THE MOVEMENT? It’s easy to join. Just visit this page, complete our form, and we’ll do the rest!. 

As members you will benefit by direct and easy access to other WECC members via SLACK. You'll also be invited to our monthly WECC ZOOM calls with featured speakers. Our WECC team is ready to assist all of our members in producing Stand Together! events aimed at highlighting issues in your community or region. Check out our recent Stand Together: Maryland! virtual event where we discuss Maryland's aggressive in-state solar mandate and the risks to Maryland's prime farmland, open space and forested areas. Other Stand Together! events in the works focus on offshore wind and threats to local control in Indiana, New York State and elsewhere.

IS WECC SEPARATE FROM WINDACTION? Yes. WECC is a membership coalition that proactively engages with communities and the media on large-scale renewable energy developments. Windaction.org remains a policy-oriented research resource with its expansive (and expanding) repository of news stories, documents, and media library. The missions of WECC and Windaction may differ but they share a core objective, to help others protect their communities and the natural environment around us from industrial-scale renewables.

PLEASE CONSIDER JOINING WECC! IT’S TIME TO UNITE AS ONE VOICE!

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.

“First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”
