The nightmare is real. Fresh introduced comes LD 1810 An Act To Implement the Recommendations of the Governor's Ocean Energy Task Force
If wind extraction technology and operation is subjected to the same standards of the state's conservation and environmental laws and regs as fishing gear, oil and coal plants and other industrial technology is, this discussion would be taking place before the Board of Environmental Protection, and every person in Maine who wanted to would be able to put his or her two cents in.
Instead LD 1810 EXEMPTS GOVERNMENT AND INDUSTRY FROM THESE BASIC ELEMENTS OF DEMOCRACY AND CONSERVATION. TELL YOUR LEGISLATOR TO REJECT IT.

DON'T LET 'EM If they aren't stopped now, this industry will leap onto Maine's bays and coves with nary a review of their impacts beyond the most comically cursory checklist.
Instead of land-rushing Maine's coastal waters with this terrifying LD 1810, let's learn from the mistakes Maine wind developers made on land, and figure out how not to make a mess off Maine's shores. Let the global corporations wait while coastal towns and ocean interests create ordinances and laws to protect themselves from the rapacious investors who are backing this invasion plan to the hilt
