The commission said this has raised “troubling questions” about the reliability of wind energy, electricity prices, social disruption, human health and environmental impacts, aesthetics, property values, tourism and false claims about environmental benefits.
“We are also troubled by the state’s energy policies, the state’s permitting process, and the ease with which the public good as expressed in our municipal and regional plans can be overridden by people who may never have even visited our region,” the statement says.
Mike..."How can we get Maine officials to smarten up?"
Our officials have had ample time and have only listened to corporate money. Seems to be a trend. Maybe now we are going to have help . The dirty banks and wind farm money just might be drying up. No money for bribery....truth will start popping up all over the place.
"regional plans can be overridden by people who have never visited our region." Sort of defines our legislative body. I remember during the Saddleback fight how they all sat there in that room and admitted they hadn't visited Webb Lake or Mount Blue State Park yet were more than willing to give control of the area to wind developers--- carpet baggers waving fistfuls of dollars..."tangible benefits" = legal bribery.
Good common sense and values rushing in to fill the vacuum left by all the bribery money suddenly drying up...Banks in trouble/wind farms have a sudden loss of cash flow...HMMMMM
Let's never forget the ones who would only listen to positive wind farm information ...somehow never could quite understand the difference in hype and fact. Not only our elected leaders but our ME mainstream media.TV and print news.
IF money can affect values, the values should be called something else...maybe bottom line.
