The Legislative Abomination Called Expedited Wind Law Pl-661

Expedited Wind Law (Pl-661) of 2008 removed civil rights from thousands of Mainer's in the state for an ideology, and for self-serving interests. How many politicians now feed off of this scam for long term employment? Do you want a list?

It was in effect an illegal taking of process and land by an elitist cabal , that was the essence Baldacci's Expedited Wind Law of 2008. The expedited wind law removed full DEP review of massive  projects in Maine. Lobbied special interest elitist global warming zealots basically excluded public input until after its passage. Global warming was the ideology , and wind turbines were the enablers of the ideology. There was no real emergency in the legislation that was introduced as an emergency. There was no legislative debate when it was stuffed through at the end of the session.

It was a horrible error of the legislature, which allowed the scheming wind industrial complex to metastasize in Maine. Hopefully, all local control of towns and areas will no longer be "expedited" after review. All these laws will be under review. New ordinances which are controlled constitutionally by towns and areas, will be restored. Every local ordinance that was lawfully in place prior to this quasi "law" will be looked at as an example. Full DEP review of every project , from decommissioning to noise, is on the table. Towns and territories are restoring their local control which they had under the Maine constitution prior to "Expedited Process".

Poor law breeds poor results, and as far as Expedited Wind Law of 2008 goes, it was a legislative abomination .

After 10 years its about time every aspect of wind permitting comes under close scrutiny by A government body. ITS About time.

LePage has done the correct thing to initiate a full moratorium of the wind industry in Maine.

His moratorium for review is fully constitutional by law,which indeed differs significantly from the “legal” process utilized by the Wind Mafia in Maine that gave birth to the abomination called Expedited Wind Law.

Damage to the state's environment and people and civil process has been done , all for a fickle trickle of intermittent electrons which is being shipped predominately out of state, for carbon credits, for an ideology.

It is indeed time for a thorough and total review of the PL-661 disaster , this time with independent research and review.

While the Moratorium will hold off any further installation of Industrial Wind Turbines allowing residents of Maine to become fully informed regarding IWTs, their real costs - financial and environmental (far broader than the devastation of irreplaceable ridge lines and mountain tops, which is damage enough), but will allow a public conversation about the Mandate - no public representation, in secret, and no clear charge indicating that any conclusions must be based on solid research carried out by credible arms-length sources.  Mainer's would be wise to insist on these changes.

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.
