Nothing to cheer about in windpower setback: Maine should do a better job indicating where there is room for wind | Portland Press Herald

[Wind energy is going to be a very vital component to an overall energy plan for the future. I see wind turbines all over California and each time I do I think about just how much foreign oil is NOT being burned because of those towers. Mainers really need to look deep within and realize that we cannot drill, drill, drill our way out of the current energy situation. The planet won’t survive that kind of thoughtlessness. – KM]

Some who created wind-power fast track now questioning the goals they set | Bangor Daily News

[Below is a link to the first in a three-part series by The Bangor Daily News in association with the Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting about wind power in Maine. The first part raised some very interesting issues about transparency in passing the law to deal with wind farm development. The first part also pointed out several other flaws in the Wind Energy Act of 2008. I support the idea of alternative, sustainable energy, so I really hope they figure out how to do what’s best for everyone. I’ll attempt to share each part of the series. – KM]
