Sen. Brian Joyce Massachusetts Wind Turbine Advocate FBI IRS RAID

State Senator Brian Joyce a Milton Democrat has agreed today to cooperate with a state ethics investigation that he used his office to benefit clients of his law firm........Massachusetts has a failed financial fiasco when it come to the state commercial wind turbine renewable energy goal of 2000 megawatts of renewable energy by the year 2020. The state has only installed around 107 megawatts of commercial wind because of litigation over the poor placement of megawatt turbines in residential communities. In 2014 no commercial megawatt turbines were installed.

Maine should indeed rate an investigation on similar issues  as well if the investigative press was at all conscious in the state, or independent. They seem to be neither.

Can we list the law firms either proponents of wind farming or their significant others are affiliated with? Have you flipped this to Naomi yet?

Mike Bond, in his fictionalized account KILLING MAINE, shows to what lengths the wind power crooks will go to protect their scam and prevent citizens from exposing and, God forbid, prosecuting them. Brian Joyce put a real face on these criminals. His abuse of hyper-power is a form of eco-bullyism that is exquisite. Let's see if the corrupt powers that be in Massachusetts have the balls to do anything to him.

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/
