"For more than 50 years I have understood that humans need to reduce their fossil fuel consumption, and that green technology, giving us solar, hydro, and wind power, are great alternative options. Through my association with the Lobster Institute in Orono, I have participated in multiple research projects and backed others with financial support.
At the Cranberry Isles Fisherman’s Co-op, in 2019, we invested in and installed on all our buildings solar roof panels. I’m a supporter of green energy. I believe in the potential of wind energy.
Why then am I appalled by proposed wind platforms off of Maine’s coast? I had to ask myself is this simply a “not in my backyard” knee-jerk reaction?
The answer is unequivocally no."
