Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts Perils of Renewables and Offshore Wind

Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts Perils of Renewables and Offshore Wind
 
Thursday, July 22, 2021, Michael Shellenberger will be presenting about the perils of renewables and offshore wind from 5-7 pm.

Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance will be hosting the open Town Hall event
"One of the country’s largest offshore wind farms is about to be built off of the coast of Martha’s Vineyard. There is no doubt this will disrupt the fishing industry and countless maritime animals. Maine just imposed a halt to any offshore wind. While you and I may think this all sounds ludicrous, to State House leaders, its a key point to their environmental agenda."
"On July 22 at 5pm, Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance will be hosting an open Town Hall event on the subject of the proposed wind farm off of Martha’s Vineyard. Our special guest for this event will be Michael Shellenberger, author of Apocalypse Never: Why Environmental Alarmism Hurts Us All and a noted expert on nuclear energy and climate change. Shellenberger is one of the foremost authorities in his field and has made many media appearances over the years on the subject, including The Colbert Report, debating Ralph Nader on Crossfire, and being named a Time Magazine "Hero of the Environment.”"

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.
