  Turbine trouble in Lee.  Wind turbines on October Mountain? A brand new group, Wise Choices for Lee (WCFL),  has sprung up in Lee, Massachusetts.  They are seeking rational, well-reasoned policies and projects for their town.  The current governing of the town seems fraught with secrecy and behind the scenes political maneuvering by an old boy’s (literally) network.  This is combined with a byzantine system of “representative” government which cuts out 99% of the citizens as only sixty some odd people actually get to vote at town meetings. The flow of information in the town is reportedly a trickle and the town manager, Bob Nason, seems to think he is Joseph Stalin with Lee as his own personal Russia. When WCFL asked to book the town’s meeting space … Read entire article »

ROAD TRIP!!!

UPDATE: Our position on the flawed DEP/DPH is leading the news stories! Ken Kimmell and Alicia McDevitt never anticipated that we would turn out in force, and neither did the media.  But that is the lead story  tonight. One of the most vital meetings we need to attend in as large a number as is possible is in Boston February 14th from 10-1. It is the meeting for the bogus expert panel DEP report. This is a critical time to show up in full force. It is a fantastic media opportunity and not having a presence will give the pro-wind organizations and lobbyists everything they want which is to deny our rights as individuals, spend our tax dollars, and laugh all the way to the bank. A group … Read entire article »

Dr. Ben Luce at Monument Mountain

“Some proponents of ridge line wind assert “we need it all”, that is, all possible renewable energy development. This simplistic assertion does not withstand a careful consideration of the actual potential for wind generation in the Eastern US, or the potential and prospects for alternatives to wind power, or the potential negative consequences of ridge line wind development on both the environment and the progress of renewable energy development in general.” — Dr. Ben Luce Dr. Luce’s formal training as a scientist, along with his work as alternative energy researcher, his love for the environment, and his experiences with legislation and public policy all work together to help him to bring a unique blend of … Read entire article »
