I went to the Maine Audubon Society presentation on climate change.  It was, quite frankly, shameful. Not one word about bird migration paths in Maine! And paid for by First Wind and a phony "environmental" not for profit donation!

Isn't it amazing that the ABC is more concerned and active than the Grandfather of Bird societies, Audubon.  Audubon has sold out to the idea that "Climate Change" is more important than defending wildlife.  All the donations that my Mother and I made in years past to Audubon will now go to ABC.  Audubon should just dry up and wither away until they get their priorities right.  I think there are places to use boycotts.

Using the chart, that is quoted by many sources if Green Energy is to be 100% (which it is not now) the bird kill on a proportional ratio will far exceed what Oil is currently stated.

I am not finding yet, as to any acceptable allowance for incidental kills for Fossil Fuels.

Some Biased Information with Cats as Bird enemy #1 (bottom paragraph) https://thinkprogress.org/chart-how-many-birds-are-killed-by-wind-s...

But did they count the # of chickens the world kills or game birds......... Naw !!!!

Read and believe with caution as the article mentions.

Are oil companies granted "incidental take" permits for migrating birds or endangered species?

For those that want a more direct access.

I have done that - it is very helpful!

Too late for the many birds killed by the Bull Hill project!

Though the Bingham Project was built in the middle of Maine's largest Bird area of concern if you research the Conservancy website and look under Wind Power concerns (you would need Google Earth to download and use their KMZ file overlay)  

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/

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.
