The Friends of the Highland Mountains have produced an excellent and informative video, available on DVD, to publicize “the threat to the beautiful and ecologically sensitive mountains of Highland Plantation, Maine. Highland Wind LLC’s proposal to blast and bulldoze these extraordinary landscape features, to construct a wind turbine complex of dubious value to Maine’s energy future, is the inspiration for the video.”
As they state in their introduction, “we need to get the message to all the people of Maine, and beyond, that our state – and many others – are under attack from the dogmatic and overzealous promotion of an industry that could destroy many of our natural and scenic resources.” Contact The Friends of the Highland Mountains at this link.
We, at Allegheny Treasures, couldn’t agree more. We are happy to offer their video in three parts below. What you see here is not unique to Maine. If you have not yet faced the horrible intrusion of these low performance/high cost/heavily subsidized monsters, it is very likely you will. Arm yourself with information such as offered here and the other fine sites we’ve linked at the left. Rest assured, you will not find this information provided by the industrial wind lobby.

Industrial wind’s impact on neighbors is dramatically expressed in Jon Boone’s, Life Under A Windplant video, presented here for your convenience:
Our thanks to The Friends of the Highland Mountains and to Jon Boone for sharing their efforts.
Pingback: Industrial wind message goes far beyond Maine, thanks to The … | Maine Guide
Thank you so much for giving our video another forum! And thanks for standing up and ‘having a say’. I truly believe that as more Mainers have access to the facts about industrial wind on Maine’s mountains, they will do the same thing. They will voice their opposition to this costly plan… costly for our environment and quality of place, and very expensive to Mainers’ pocketbooks.
So… thank you, from the bottom of my heart.

I am going to be adding a link to your site on the windcows site and was hoping you would be so kind to do the same. Keep up the good fight.
Hey, Lynn? What is the windcows site? And would you like a link to it from my blog? (I’d like to see it first before committing, but I’m sure it’s fine.)
Please let me know.
Here’s the link for windcows: http://www.windcows.com/
I like the videos you have posted. It’s amazing that people around the globe are having the same trouble with these things and governments don’t seem to care. Stay in touch with us in WI. Perhaps we can share some ideas/resources and information besides links.
