Will you let a lame duck kill a bald eagle?

The lame duck Congress, legal eagles and pro-wind turkeys could very well give the wind industry addicts yet another fix and revive the Production Tax Credit (PTC), a 10 year gift to grifters and grafters coming out of the taxpayer pocket while simultaneously slamming ratepayers. Always minimized in the media as 2.3 cents per kWH, this translates to about a $1.5 Million taxpayer gift PER TURBINE to the slick investor crowd who think nothing of Maine or of you.

Please take a moment to let our members of Congress know that extending the PTC is not acceptable to you. This will take but a minute of your time if you sign the group letter referenced at the Friends of Maine's Mountains website:

And please ask everyone you know who cares to do the same. This should be done over the next couple of days.

Thank you to Friends of Maine's Mountains, Saving Maine for their vital TV/Radio/Newspaper campaign, all the project-specific Maine wind groups and wind warriors everywhere. Thank YOU.
Happy Thanksgiving to all.

An update on North America's eagle slaughter by wind turbines..............This fraudulent industry has voluntary regulations. With these voluntary regulations this fraudulent industry has reported very little of its eagle mortality. Yet since 1997 and including 2014 numbers about 31,000 eagle carcasses have been shipped to the Denver Repository.

 

In a hidden FWS document now in my possession it was reported that wind turbines were one of the primary sources of these eagle carcasses.

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.
