Maine's AG Janet Mills Mills has not discussed investigating the collapse of SunEdison

Despite the group’s infatuation with clean power and stated purpose to protect existing green energy policy, the group doesn’t seem to have much interest in following up on the recent downfall of a major clean energy producer in the U.S.

Mills and her coalition cohorts have not discussed investigating the collapse of SunEdison, one of the world’s largest global renewable energy development companies, which has pending projects in Maine. SunEdison is on the verge of bankruptcy despite the $1.5 billion it has received in subsidies and loan guarantees from the federal government. Currently, the Justice Department and Securities Exchange Commission are investigating SunEdison’s finances and the disclosures it made to investors before the company’s stock recently went into total freefall.

I've known Janet for years.  Generally speaking, she's not naturally stupid.  She has to make an effort.  Her motives come more from ambition than ideological conviction.  I'm pretty sure she hopes to run for governor when LePage leaves. She understands that the nomination has become unattainable without MPA  support.  She may choose to pirouette around the wind mills, but no Democrat can escape the Global Warming Crowd.

The hypocrisy is beyond embarrassing.  To place tobacco in the same category as fossil fuels is downright bizarre.  Remove all fossil fuels from our current society, every last drop, and what would remain?  Do they even think about such things in their political witch hunt?  Remember the line, "The future is in plastics"?

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/
