How I felt upon hearing that the United Arab Emirates is stalking American government subsidies throughout the hillsides and mountains of these United States, sea to shining sea, was quite indescribable. When industrial wind reared its head in Maine, I set out to learn more about it.
It is fronted by other utility organizations and subsidized to the tune of millions and tied to an Arab group that we’ve made rich by rebuilding their oil supplying wells and is now using that wealth to fleece us within our own boundaries. Then add environmental injuries, American citizens’ personal losses and ask: Who is watching out for us?
My age of complacency and trust in most politicians is at an end.
Promoters of big wind, knowing the facts full well, carry on with the groundwork for these short-lived and ineffective turbine sites, looking very like they plan to sell their vile accomplishment to the fourth-largest utility in the entire world, Iberdrola. Iberdrola proved to be the underbelly of Arabian interests with it’s signing of a contract with the Emirates in 2008, according to Reuters. Such prostitution!
The selling of our landscapes, environment, our pleas and wishes, birthrights and our homeland at so cheap a price, all the while disguised as “patriotic and as power independence for America.” It seems we’re all in somebody’s sights, and we aren’t expected to come out the winners.
Do they grin and wink at each other behind closed doors?
