Wind, wind everywhere  

Credit:  Bangor Daily News, www.bangordailynews.com 10 December 2010 ~~

We are writing to voice our concerns regarding industrial wind development on the ridges of Maine.

It appears to us that there is no end to the destruction of Maine’s beautiful ridges by the construction of industrial wind turbines. The industrial wind industry is steamrolling through the rural and undeveloped portions of Maine while the majority of citizens in southern Maine can largely ignore the issue or enjoy a “feel-good” mood about it while not seeing, feeling or hearing them.

We do not want our hard-earned tax dollars subsidizing an industry that will not curb our dependence on oil, will provide minimal and short-term job opportunities for Maine people, cannot stand on its own financially and, most importantly to us, destroys the beautiful, wild panoramas that set us apart from almost every other state in the country.
