Former Maine Officials on Redington

The 19 Feb 2007 issue of The Portland (ME) Press-Herald on MaineToday.Com has a commentary by Beth Nagusky and Cheryl Harrington, both recently in state government, published under the headline "Turbines on mountains a better choice."

They make the case for wind power to overcome fossil fuel dependence and to do something about climate change. This despite admitting that "
It is true the Redington wind project would alter views from segments of the Appalachian Trail." They continue immediately by saying, "But every energy project, including renewable ones, faces sincere objection from some individuals or groups."

I don't read the piece as necessarily wanting the windmills on that site, but as something that is really, really necessary somewhere.
