Hazard at times of high fire
To the Editor:
Emergency wind law was enacted to get us off fossil fuels, create energy independence and reduce Co2 emissions. None of these is a state of emergency. But, I can tell you what is -- fire hazard in the state of Maine.
The emergency wind law did not put any responsibility on the developer when it came to enforcement of noice complaints, bird and raptor kills, protection of children or fire prevention. Instead, the developer forced citizens to create their own complaint protocol by writing letters to the editor in the Bethel Citizen by Spruce Mountain victims.
Inland Fish and Wildlife says chances are greatest of migratory and raptor kills along the “great” river. Lawyers have deemed perpetual easements legal, assuring any children of the future will suffer noise and flicker abuse. Kibby wind project turbine fire makes it to the media three months later.
Who is responsible? Wind LLC? Wrong. Limited liability covers them.
The towns and the state of Maine will be responsible for a forest fire. Protocol is stand back, let her burn and contain the perimeters. Predicted weather through this weekend is high and dry.
There should be an emergency shutdown of industrial wind turbines at high fire.
