What is the rush to construct these windmills around small towns and on the mountains of Maine?

Some say it’s to reduce our dependency on foreign oil. When all is said and done, they will not produce enough energy to make a dent in our needs, but it will make some investors very rich.

To top it off, the energy will be sold out of state. Our electric bills will not go down. Oh, the towns will get taxes, but is it worth it? The mountain landscape will be ruined for many years to come.

Oil baron T. Boone Pickens of Texas said natural gas is the way to go. It’s non-polluting and a near endless supply.

If windmills are so wonderful and a big energy saver, I would suggest to the investors to put them on their estates. And, Wall Street? Put them on their high rises.

Don’t let these investors laugh all the way to the bank while we struggle to pay our energy bills.
