    Imminent danger for birds flying the Eastern Seaboard/Atlantic migratory route

    Dear National Wind Watch, I have lived on Monhegan island in Maine for 30 years. Monhegan Island is a small island (1 mi × 3/4 mi) that is located 13 miles off of the coast of Maine, USA, and is a stop-off for many species of birds traveling the Eastern/Atlantic Migratory Flyway route north in the spring and south in the fall along the Eastern coast. In many cases the island is the first piece of land that birds see . . .

    Oakfield ruined by First Wind (SunEdison, whatever!) turbines: latest photos

    An erstwhile wind warrior grabbed his camera this week and sent in these sad photos of the Oakfield Wind project, still under construction, but with enough turbines up so the impact is clear. First Wind bamboozled the Town of Oakfield with a so-called collaboration with a poor town that was eager for tax revenues and landowners eager to get leasing income. Again, First Wind laughs all the way to the bank, having taken over the town at a cheap, rock-bottom . . .

    Killing Maine, a novel by Mike Bond

    Buy at Amazon. Some of America’s most corrupt politicians can be found in the windswept wilds of Maine. The Pine Tree State rates next-to-last in citizens’ trust of their legislators according to the Gallup Poll (April 4, 2014), and the Center for Public Integrity gives the state an F for corruption. Maine politicians appropriate taxpayer funds for their own companies, while governors pass legislation for huge energy projects which they then create companies to run. And energy companies write laws . . .

    It’s Time to Reconsider

    If you can’t see grid scale wind turbines from your home and don’t think they affect you, it may be time to reconsider. Maine is being permanently scarred and its “Quality of Place” jeopardized by industrial wind projects. Wind industry advertising and PR tells us that wind power is high benefit and low impact. But the very opposite is true. Calling them “wind farms,” wind developers promote a warm, soft image. But reality paints a different picture. The turbines being . . .

    Tell Maine DEP: Stop Oakfield Wind!

    First Wind of Boston is seeking to drastically change the size and scope of the proposed Oakfield Wind Project. First Wind (Evergreen Wind Power II, LLC) is seeking to build 50 wind turbines, almost double the original number proposed in their original application. The new turbines will stand at 459 feet tall – the equivalent height of a 45 story building. The proposed modification amounts to an enormous change; and the differences in the impacts of noise and vibration between . . .
