Great Read: Renewable energy mandates, GE and other cronies

 

EXCERPT:

But even better for GE is the fact that wind turbines last 20 years- at best. Thus, over the 60 year life of a typical coal plant, not only do ratepayers need to pay for a new 1,000MW (GE) gas generator, they are also compelled to buy 1,000 MW of  GE wind turbines AND replace them at least two more times over 60 years.

Thus, through the magic of EPA regulation, coupled with high level PR  air support from willing accomplices like Sierra Club and furthered by renewable energy mandates like the one SB310 hopes to freeze, corporate giant GE has struck a largely tax free green bonanza.

Ohio is the first state of the 29 with renewable-energy standards to pass a reduction of the standards in both legislative chambers.

The Ohio House voted 55-42 to approve the legislation, Senate Bill 310. The Senate quickly followed with a concurrence vote.

How will Americans ever grow out of "keeping up with the Joneses"? I am amazed at the Sheik who has 98 monster yachts, including the world's largest. Or the guy in Georgia who chartered separate Lear jets to send his dogs to Cal. for obedience classes? The dogs couldn't ride on the same plane because they didn't get along. It may be hopeless to expect people to act rationally.

50s child remembers 'GE brings good things to life'. Do you? I was very protected against advertisements of any kind through no TV etc., but the message that electricity and specifically electric stoves, vacuums, etc were better for post-WWII women permeated. It was me, still on the rubber knee-pad scrubbing the floor and dusting, and outside raking and composting. But my points are that the electric dream was costly and rejected for natural gas appliances, quite a long time ago; 2) we did physical labor more than appliances or weed-wackers, and maybe 3) should be that we recycled not just through hand-me-downs but through heirlooms. Legacy is experience and spoken word. Down here, I am disgusted by the 'earth-moving' equipment even thoigh I lived in John Deere home of Springfield Illinois, but I am more disgusted by wasted energy in that sector. I am more disgusted by the 'need' of Americans to have monster trucks and SUVs and to demonstrate their sense of personal wealth not just by owning, but their personal sense of security by leaving it running for the 10 minutes that they pop in the store. We waste so much and that is what should be addressed.

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.
