Toxic wind, rare earth minerals, carcinogens, radioactive waste, extortion, weapons trafficking, murder and executions

To the friendly readers at Citizens' Task Force on Wind Power-Maine:

As an anti-wind campaigner since 2004, I was initially solely concerned about damaged aesthetics associated with offshore proposed Cape Wind, now struggling for survival :)  For the past decade, I have been researching wind energy as a private citizen, and I'm encouraged that finally the truth about this ENRON business model is surfacing.  I extend credit and thanks to all who have looked behind the curtain to see that wind developers' promises are rarely, if ever, kept.  Most  look forward to the day when the public, fed an endless stream of wind rhetoric, will be able to examine the full life cycle of wind energy as this will create a better understanding that wind energy is a dirty business, and not just due to the dirty politics involved.  

Question:  What does Molybdenum, a rare earth mineral used to make wind turbines, have to do with toxic waste, carcinogens and radioactive waste, extortion, weapons trafficking, murder and executions?

Rare Earth Mineral Molybdenum is: “The metal is used in oil pipelines, new thin-film solar panels, in the steel used for wind turbines, as well as in traditional coal/fossil fuel power stations. In the case of oil pipelines, it takes 2.6 million pounds of moly for every 1,000 miles of pipe.”

Question:  So, just how dirty is so-called "clean energy", wind energy, that incorporates the rare earth mineral Molybdenum?  Let's ask (wind loving) Greenpeace toxics expert-

 

“Jamie Choi, an expert on toxics for Greenpeace China, says villagers living near the lake face horrendous health risks from the carcinogenic and radioactive waste.”

 

There’s not one step of the rare earth mining process that is not disastrous for the environment. Ores are being extracted by pumping acid into the ground, and then they are processed using more acid and chemicals..”

Liu Han is former chairman of Sichuan Hanlong Group that holds controlling stake in Moly Mines, and the fully permitted U.S. rare-earth mineral mines, Mt. Hope Project and the Liberty Project in Nevada.    

 

General Moly:   "We own two world-class projects: an 80% interest in the fully permitted Mt. Hope Project and 100% of the Liberty Project, both in Nevada, U.S.A."

Hanlong Group that owns controlling interest in General Moly had committed to invest $665 million in the Nevada mines, but the founder, Liu Han, has been executed in China.

On Feb 9, 2015, rare earth mineral mining tycoon Liu Han, his brother, Wei, and three others were executed by the government for running a “Mafia-Style Gang”.  Thirty seven were charged with crimes including, assault, illegal detention, blackmail, extortion, illegal gaming, weapons trafficking and murder.

HONG KONG — A Chinese billionaire who was building a mining empire in Australia was one of five people executed Monday after a court last year sentenced them to die for running a criminal gang that engaged in murder and extortion.

Liu Han, 49, his brother Wei, and three associates were executed on Monday, the state-run Xinhua news agency reported, citing the Xianning Intermediate People’s Court in the central Chinese province of Hubei.

The men had been sentenced in May for running a criminal syndicate that killed at least eight people, ran extortion schemes, trafficked weapons, and operated gambling dens.

China Executes Mining Tycoon Liu Han For Running 'Mafia-Style' Gang

The Chinese government on Monday executed a former mining tycoon with links to the eldest son of disgraced security chief Zhou Yongkang, media reports said.

 

The High People’s Court in the province of Hubei ordered the execution of Liu Han, former chairman of the Sichuan Hanlong Group, who was found guilty of 13 charges including murder and illegal firearms sales. He was sentenced to death last May for murder and running a “mafia-style” gang along with 36 others.

 

Liu Han was executed along with his younger brother, Liu Wei, and three other associates, Tang Xianbing, Zhang Donghua, and Tian Xianwei, the South China Morning Post (SCMP) reported.

The case against Liu Han is reportedly one of the most prominent charges brought against a private businessman. Liu Han, who was in 2012 listed as China’s 148th richest person by Forbes, reportedly ran a criminal gang, responsible for the deaths of nine people. Police seized hand grenades, submachine guns, pistols and other firearms in a raid in 2013, the Guardian reported

Thank you, all at Citizens' Task Force, for offering this forum to those who wish to independently investigate and report their findings regarding TOXIC WIND ENERGY.  As many readers here understand, we won't be reading these facts anytime soon in local news publications that BIG WIND appears to control.  And, here, I won't be edited, deleted, or blacklisted for speaking the truth about TOXIC WIND ENERGY

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.
