WE MUST STEP UP AND SPEAK OUT! The Wind Industry has public relations professionals working overtime in a desperate campaign to keep the public in the dark about the dismal realities of wind generated power. Only recently have the media in Maine have started publicly questioning the pie-in-the-sky lies presented by the wind developers and politicians. Our persistent barrage of letters to the editor and opinion pieces are making a difference and we need your help to maintain it.

Email or write a letter to our local and state politicians. Don’t be intimidated – these politicians work for you!

Email or write a letter to newspaper editors around the state. We must make them aware of the research that proves that wind generated energy is a failed technology. They have the power to inform the public.

Most newspapers require your name, full address, and daytime phone number with a letter (if your letter is published; only your name and town will be printed).

Here are some issues you might address in your letters:

*   Huge costs to the taxpayers
*   Absurd tax credits to the Wind Developers
*   A failed technology proven not to provide reliable energy
*   Lowered property values
*   Environmental destruction
*   Adverse effects on tourism and the local economy
*   Decreased quality of life for the community
*   Needless destruction of Maine's Quality of Place

Writing a letter or email to a newspaper, magazine, radio station or politician takes only a few minutes but can have a major impact. Feel free to use any information you find on our website to help you. If you feel the way we do, that the people of Maine have been deceived and taken advantage of, make your opinion heard! We've compiled the following email addresses to make it easier for you.
