Saving Maine web site up and running with new look and donation option.

The Saving Maine web site , www.SavingMaine.org, has been renovated and is up and running with a new donation option, a "who we are" page, and more. Our plan calls for an entirely new site over the coming weeks. We want to thank everyone for their positive comments and their encouragement. We look forward working with you all as this effort rolls out. We have a lot to do and will need everyone's help to make this effort pay. So, try out that donation button and use it often. Thanks.

Richard, I have submitted and had published several letters in the last six months.  They limit my postings, but as soon as I can, I will.  They are very familiar with me.  LOL

Jim: Would you be willing to write a letter to the editor or a guest column in the BDN in support of Saving Maine's campaign to educate the citizens of Maine about the exploitation of wind developers, et al? Merchandising the campaign in this manner can go along way to extend the media buy. We'd appreciate your support.

Sorry Richard.  I was looking at the Task Force web site.  I went to Saving Maine and found it.  I found it to be well written and researched.  

]Sorry again.

Jim: The home page I see does not say anything about Truth about wind in Europe. The headline of the home page is Truth About Wind in Maine- then a quote from Thoreau. The NREL Maine map is to your left. Thanks for the donation and we may take you up on the writing offer. We are a small shop working many hours a day to keep this effort going and spending all of funding on ads and creative production.

Most of the posts I have seen on this website are well written and concise.  I'm not sure what Janice is talking about.  I will volunteer to rewrite anything that needs it.  I think Log Islander will vouch for my abilities.

Richard.  I see "Truth About Wind in Europe" and "Maine's Wind is Poor" but no truth about wind in Maine.  I have been a member for four years and written many BDN articles and blog posts.  I did make a donation also.  Thanks

Jim Lutz: The Truth About Wind In Maine is on the homepage. Thanks for coming to the site and don't forget to use that donate button.

I can't find the tab "Truth About Wind In Maine."  Am I mising something?

Janice: We appreciate your comment and will take a look at the text you referred to and make the necessary adjustments to clarify our position(s). It would be wonderful to have a professional writer working with us. Maybe you'd like to make a donation to Saving Maine to help us augment our budget to afford a professional scribe. Are you a professional writer? If so, would you'd be interested in working with us on a voluntary basis? Thanks again for your comment.

Although I admire the effort and passion, I suggest that you hire a professional writer and immediately re-write the copy on your site, especially the tab Truth about Wind in Maine. That page in particular is a mish-mash. I wasn't sure if you were pro-wind or anti-wind when I looked at that page. If you're going to entitle a page Truth About Wind, don't follow it up with bold statements like WIND IS GOOD FOR THE ENVIRONMENT and WIND IS AFFORDABLE. Totally confusing. If you hire somebody with some basic writing skills you can probably get all that corrected relatively cheaply. Good luck, and thanks for fighting the good fight!

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/
