WITHIN THE PAST  THREE  YEARS , ROLLINS, ROXBURY , OAKFIELD 1, AND SADDLEBACK APPEALS TO THE SUPREME COURT  HAVE  ALLOWED THE MAINE  JUSTICES TO HEAR THE OTHER  SIDE  OF WIND  POWER .

ROLLINS, OAKFIELD  AND  ROXBURY  APPEALS  HAVE  ALL  BEEN DENIED AND  SADDLEBACK HAS BEEN  HEARD  BUT NO OPINION  HAS  BEEN  GIVEN YET.

THE APPEAL OF THE OAKFIELD 2 PERMIT WILL BE HEARD BY THE LAW COURT THIS COMING WEDNESDAY.  PLEASE, IF  YOU CAN, SUPPORT THE  CITIZENS WHO ARE APPEALING THE  INSTALLATION  OF  50 TURBINES  IN THE OAKFIELD AND  ISLAND  FALLS REGION IN  NORTHERN  MAINE BY ATTENDING  THE  HEARING.

 

WHEN ? WEDNESDAY 12-12-12   AT 2 :05 pm

WHERE ?  AT THE  Courthouse at 205 Newbury St, Portland, ME.

Take Rt. 95 and go onto Rt. 295 in Gardner, right past Augusta.  Exit 7, Franklin St., in Portland.  When you exit, you are on Franklin, continue past two lights, and the next St. is Congress St.  Turn right and on your right is a parking lot, best place to park.  Exit the parking lot, and in front of you is a park, walk past the park, and you are at the court building.  Walk along the side of the building (you can't enter the door on the side of the park) and on the other side is the entrance.  There is security there, so ask the guards how to get up to the Supreme Court court room.  
 
 
THANK  YOU

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.
