    Is this what they mean when they talk about liberal indoctrination in our schools?

    Meanwhile, the Island Institute’s wind cheerleading has blown up in its face on Vinalhaven.

    A GREAT read that the Island Institute does not want you to read is right here: 

    And the University of Maine, which has flushed more than $2 million down the toilet for a feelgood but feckless wind turbine does not want you to read the following:

      Good for the Vinalhaven students to be looking at ways to conserve energy!   This makes sense, especially with the current cost of wind energy on the island, OVER 13 cents a KWH in March  for JUST the ENERGY portion of the electric bill!   Rates are higher than they have been in years and double what Fox Islands Wind promised at 6 cents a KWH for the energy portion of the bill.  Buying electricity  from the mainland grid would save each ratepayer island family approximately  $20 a month.  Take a look at the two year wind energy history.

    At least it was not an industrial  wind turbine hugging blow in. Reducing energy use is a good idea.

    A good natural gas generator at present and future low gas prices would have been much more economical.
    The residents have learned that wind power is a subsidized farce.
    Enjoy the law suits BTW, for the damage imposed by the turbines against innocent abutters, that drove some from their homes because of the infra sound and other turbine noise.
