Million dollar plus homes in Washington County to escape climate change

"There's a sucker born every minute"

Luxe homes in rural Maine will ready buyers for a sustainable, or unsustainable, future

As eco-friendly luxury homes fetch hefty prices from affluent buyers, Washington County may soon lure ones preparing for Armageddon.

A development group plans to break ground in late spring on the first of 50 sustainably designed homes that offer amenities like chef-grade kitchen appliances, housekeeping services, and shower filters that infuse water with vitamin C. Owners will also have access to a common lodge with a commercial kitchen and bar, a private beach and sauna, a meditation center, recreation facilities and more. Home prices will range to over $1 million.

But the Merriwood Sustainable Community, on 1,000 acres along Howard Lake in Robbinston, is also intended to be a haven from COVID-19, the effects of climate change and doomsday in general.

There will be a 100-acre organic farm that "can provide for the full nutritional needs of the community," according to a news release. A first-aid clinic will be onsite. Internet service will be available through a dedicated fiber-optic line and satellite backup system. Independent power generation, utilizing solar and perhaps wind technologies, will allow Merriwood to go off-grid if necessary.

Randall Solomon, who lives in New Jersey and is launching Merriwood with three partners, said it will cater to buyers who want an environmentally sustainable home for vacationing or year-round use — but also want a "plan B" if times get tough.

I've been booted off Facebook and my posts are sparse, non-violent and don't violate any of their policies.  Just sayin'...

 Fifty more well to do carpetbaggers, just what the state needs! Most likely fifty more Sara Gideons wanting to turn the state into a socialist stronghold.

Now, I'd shell out a million bucks for a shower with vitamin C infused water, if they didn't build that darn shower so near the soon-to-be-flooded coast. I'm sure the locals will enjoy the show.  Errrr, shower.

JFK had a bullet go through the front of his neck. But if you don't believe he was killed by Oswald from behind, you're a conspiracy theorist. If you don't believe that two planes knocked down WTC 1 and WTC 2 but also a third building, WTC 7, a 47 story steel skyscraper not hit by a plane, you're a 9/11 truther. If you are skeptical that man's effect on the climate may not destroy the planet but rather simply enrich Wall Street hucksters, then you are a climate change denier. What do you suppose they will label good, honest, patriotic Americans who know there was unprecedented fraud in the 2020 election? "Baseless Claimers"?

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


(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 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?" 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.”

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.
