Windy response  

Credit:  Bangor Daily News | Posted July 31, 2013 | bangordailynews.com ~~

In his response to the Department of Environmental Protection’s denial of the Bowers Mountain Wind Project, John Lamontagne of First Wind reminds us of the old saying: “Denial isn’t just a river in Egypt.”

In his July 25 statement, he said: “This draft decision runs contrary to the views of the people of Carroll Plantation and surrounding communities who were very supportive of this project. … The Department of Environmental Protection instead adopted the position of a small minority.”

Really? The public hearing testimony on the Bowers Mountain project, at last review, yielded the following statistic: 345 of 379, or 91 percent, giving oral or written testimony opposed the project. Evidently, a Land Use Regulation Commission denial, the DEP denial and public hearings that reveal overwhelming opposition aren’t enough to stop First Wind, in its desperation, from stating bald-faced lies.
