First Wind is an Eagle sponsor to Maine Audubon.. Kill the eagles.

Great waterways. great rivers are migratory passes. Canton Mountain Wind will kill the Eagles along the mighty scrogg. So Audubon, no safe place for a turbine.

should be noted

Woodstock selectmen made a variance on noise and increased the nighttime limit to 50 dBc. Patriot Renewables is held in compliance at 50 dBc not the 42 dBc the supreme court ruled.

Thank God a citizen's initiative caused the legislature to look at this health issue.

Now for the health board in each town to demand they handle the hot line.

WIND is a loss

this intermittent source, off the coast of Maine, had no "idling reserve" for back-up.
Transmission alone would drive electrical rates up.
