Swedish couple purchase large chunk of Eastbrook land
Ellsworth American - Thursday, November 20, 2014 

On Nov. 3, Anders and Christina Höglund of Vara, Sweden, bought two parcels totaling 5,600 acres of timberland in the vicinity of Sugar Hill and Molasses Pond Road. Their attorney, Gordon Scannell of Perkins Thompson in Portland, regularly consults on large land sales and said the nature of timber holdings in Maine has changed dramatically over the last 20 years. Most of the land before that time was owned by paper companies — such as International Paper and Great Northern — which divested themselves of their land holdings. “Now a lot of it is owned by timber trusts or real estate trusts or high net worth individuals,” Scannell said. Asked why the Höglunds bought the property, Scannell said: “Rather than invest in the Swedish stock market or buy a vacation home in Spain, they thought it would be fun to own some timberland in the U.S. in Maine."
Inside the Maine family-run zoo, star of new reality series ‘Yankee Jungle’
Bangor Daily News - Thursday, November 20, 2014 

Lions roared and wolves howled in reply, their wild chorus echoing through the tall white pines of Mount Vernon, Maine. Tundra is the eldest lion at DEW Animal Kingdom and Sanctuary, which is home to more than 200 exotic and domestic animals. On the blustery day in mid-November, DEW was closed for the season. Nevertheless, behind the cast iron gates that barred the entrance, the sanctuary was bustling with activity. It’s no surprise that this strange and exciting place has been chosen to be the subject of a new TV series, “Yankee Jungle,” set to premiere on Animal Planet at 9 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 29.
Letter: King, not Collins, correct on pipeline vote
Daily Bulldog (Franklin County) - Thursday, November 20, 2014 

Senator Collins, in spite of her folksie political advertisements about her love for the environment, voted yesterday with corporate interests over the interests of the people of Maine and its coast line in favor of the Keystone XL pipeline. Senator King being more true to Maine's interests voted against the pipeline and for that I commend him. ~ Ed Miller, Farmington
Letter: Fair and fowl
Bangor Daily News - Thursday, November 20, 2014 

Once again the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife have given waterfowl hunters, especially for Downeast, the worst hunting season time frames. Waterfowl hunting should be open in all zones through October and into November. There should be no coastal zone. What are the biological reasons for setting the seasons the way they are set? December and January should be for sea duck hunting only. Black ducks are under physiological stress as the sea duck population has been decreasing. What has the IF&W and the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service done to restore these populations? ~ Fred Hartman, Whiting
Lobstermen steer clear of measures to save cod in Gulf of Maine
Portland Press Herald - Wednesday, November 19, 2014 

Federal regulators voted Wednesday to exempt the lobster fishery from measures aimed at saving plummeting cod stocks in the Gulf of Maine. The vote to protect the lobster fishery came as the New England Fishery Management Council endorsed some of the toughest regulations the region’s groundfishermen have ever seen.
‘Next big thing’: Demo of machine that extracts meat from crustaceans draws seafood industry execs
Bangor Daily News - Wednesday, November 19, 2014 

With a loud beep and a whooshing intake of air, a roomful of Maine seafood processor representatives got an up-close look Wednesday at a machine intended to address several problems the industry faces. The device, about the size of a dormitory room refrigerator, was brought to Maine by representatives from Xifuri, the Chinese firm that developed it, as a possible solution to Maine’s green crab problem. Fisheries officials have been looking for an effective way to process the creatures, which are smaller than Jonah or rock crabs and pose a more complicated meat extraction challenge. But industry officials who gathered Wednesday for the demonstration seemed more interested in the device’s potential impact on a different species: lobster.
Blog: King works the press – again
Other - Wednesday, November 19, 2014 

Angus King did not kill the Keystone XL pipeline project. There’s a mythical idea in Congress of politicians who cast “the deciding vote” on an issue, such as Tuesday’s vote on the authorization to move ahead with the Keystone XL construction. The premise is that a wavering pol falls on one side of the other of a vote thus determining its fate. In this case, there are two flaws in that theory – the first, that King was going to be anything other than a vote against the polarizing project; the second, that his vote somehow was more consequential than Sen. Barbara Boxer’s against it or Sen. Mary Landrieu’s for it. Let’s be clear: King is a master (if genial) politician. ~ Rebekah Metzler
Judge’s ruling keeps Old Town mill purchase in play
Bangor Daily News - Wednesday, November 19, 2014 

A judge’s ruling on Wednesday will keep the Old Town Fuel & Fiber pulp mill running for the next two weeks in anticipation of a $10.5 million sale that still needs court approval. The agreement for Wisconsin-based Expera Specialty Solutions to buy the mill from New York-based private equity firm Patriarch Partners sets out a tight timeline for gaining final approval for the deal. That will go before the court in a Dec. 5 hearing, a moment for determining the bankrupt mill’s longer-term future.
MMA Railway bankruptcy trustee casts wide net for corporations to pay Lac-Megantic victims
Bangor Daily News - Wednesday, November 19, 2014 

The bankruptcy trustee in the Montreal, Maine and Atlantic Railway case is casting a wide net in an effort to reach into deep corporate pockets to create a fund to compensate victims and help pay the enormous costs related to the Lac-Megantic rail disaster in Quebec last year. In September, Robert Keach of Portland asked a federal bankruptcy judge to order nine international companies to turn over all documents that discuss the sale of crude oil obtained from the Bakken Foundation in North Dakota, then, shipped by truck and rail into and across Canada. The derailment and ensuing fire and explosions killed 47 people, forced another 2,000 from their homes and destroyed much of the downtown core in the village of fewer than 6,000 residents.
Tough questions about spoiling view at Baxter State Park
Friends of Maine's Mountains - Wednesday, November 19, 2014 

Last week, EDP Renewables, a Texas company that wants to build Maine’s largest industrial wind site in Aroostook County, just 30 miles from Baxter State Park, held its Number Nine Mountain Wind Project Public Informational Meeting at the high school gym in Mars Hill. Chris O’Neil, a government relations consultant to Friends of Maine’s Mountains, asked some tough questions.
Democrats Win KXL Vote, Open Defense of Obama's Climate Agenda
Other - Wednesday, November 19, 2014 

InsideClimate News - Senate Democrats held together just enough votes on Tuesday to defeat, at least for now, legislation to build the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline. The bill's failure, by 59 yeas to 41 nays, lets President Obama off the hook for a possible veto at the start of this lame-duck session of Congress. Sixty votes were needed to avoid a filibuster and move the legislation along. The House had passed it last week. Relieved environmentalists celebrated the brief reprieve. So did the Senate Democrats who are about to relinquish their majority. It was the first defense by besieged Congressional Democrats of President Obama's entire environmental and climate agenda, which they fear may be going down the drain.
Editorial: Ignoring science will limit the Gulf of Maine to a bleak fisheries future
Bangor Daily News - Wednesday, November 19, 2014 

The shock of shutting down a fishery is real, but the Gulf of Maine’s fishing history has been building up to this moment of uncertainty over the future of Maine’s fishing economy. As regulators institute emergency cod fishery closures, fishermen and some politicians are questioning the science behind regulators’ decisions. But there’s little reason to doubt the science behind the cod catch limitations — and it’s self-defeating. Plus, there’s an undeniable history of overfishing in the Gulf of Maine that has led to Gulf of Maine cod stocks at 3 percent of the target level for a sustainable population. It’s tempting to doubt generally accepted science one finds unsatisfactory. But doubting the science, then failing to take any action in response to warning signs, sets up the Gulf of Maine for a bleak fisheries future.
Dear snow-trolls: Winter weather does not refute global warming
Washington Post - Wednesday, November 19, 2014 

If you live in the U.S., you have been feeling insanely cold lately. The area south of Buffalo got 5 feet of snow this week and the Weather Channel says parts of the Midwest and Great Lakes region may experience “one of the longest sub-freezing spells on record for the month of November.” We’ve been through this drill before — last winter, actually. And it’s important to keep in mind that just because it is very cold in the U.S. doesn’t mean that you should question the overall warming trend for the planet. Weather shifts heat and cold around — we know that. We also know our own local experiences inherently bias us, since we only live the weather in one place. But the total global picture remains one of warming.
Regulators Reject Lobster Restrictions in Gulf of Maine Cod Spawning Areas
Maine Public Broadcasting Network - Wednesday, November 19, 2014 

Federal regulators have voted not to restrict lobster fishing in cod spawning areas in the Gulf of Maine. The New England Fishery Management Council was considering a proposal to prohibit lobster gear from those areas out of concern over unintentional cod by-catch. At a meeting in Rhode Island, many lobstermen opposed that idea, arguing that the data being used to justify the motion was unreliable. That's also the position of Maine's Department of Marine Resources. The council ended up passing a motion calling for more study on the issue.
My Maine - Changing Maine
George Smith's Outdoor News Blog - Wednesday, November 19, 2014 

Maine has changed a lot in my 66 years here, but in many of the ways that count with me, it’s changed very little. I was born a Maine sportsman, raised a Maine sportsman, and will die a Maine sportsman. My heritage is wild and native brook trout and white-tailed deer. I didn’t need today’s Hooked-on-Fishing-Not-On-Drugs program offered by Maine’s Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife. I became addicted to our colorful brook trout at an early age.
What First Wind’s sale could mean for wind development in Maine
Bangor Daily News - Wednesday, November 19, 2014 

SunEdison’s plan to buy wind developer First Wind for $2.4 billion would place its Maine wind projects in the portfolio of the world’s largest renewable energy company. The deal also would hasten a shift in how renewable energy projects are financed. If the deal closes as planned early next year, First Wind’s turbines would become part of a relatively new trend in renewable power that allows a company to turn its promise of regular returns from long-term electricity buyers into cash it could invest in new projects. The investment from SunEdison also displaces Emera’s stake in First Wind, leaving the Nova Scotia-based power company with cash that it could invest in new power generation assets in New England.
Ruling seen as a setback for drone operators
Associated Press - Wednesday, November 19, 2014 

The government has the power to hold drone operators accountable when they operate the remote-control aircraft recklessly, a federal safety board ruled Tuesday in a setback to small drone operators chafing under Federal Aviation Administration restrictions. More than a million small drone aircraft have been sold worldwide in the past few years, and a growing number of them are turning up in U.S. skies near airports and airliners, posing a risk of collision. Congress directed the FAA to safely integrate drones of all sizes into U.S. skies by the fall of 2015, but it is clear the agency won’t meet that deadline. [In June, the National Park Service prohibited launching, landing, or operating unmanned aircraft on lands and waters administered by NPS.]
Skiing in Maine, you can find cheaper thrills on small hills
Associated Press - Wednesday, November 19, 2014 

If you aren’t hung up on big resort names and can draw satisfaction from schussing down trails only a fraction as long as those at the big mountains, skiing on the cheap can be easily done at smaller, lesser-known places — especially in Maine, which has some big resorts like Sunday River and Sugarloaf, but is also scattered with small, family- or club-owned ski hills. At these smaller ski areas, a day’s lift ticket might amount to $10 or $20, and a season’s pass to what you’d pay for a couple of days at a large resort. That compares to the $80-a-day or so a larger resort will charge.
Opinion: Portland needs a fair, reasonable, enforceable noise ordinance
Portland Press Herald - Wednesday, November 19, 2014 

In 2010, Portland adopted a strange noise ordinance. The decibel scale is nonlinear, like the Richter scale for earthquakes. It begins at 0, which denotes the lowest threshold of normal hearing (the softest sound you can hear), but because the range of hearing is so large, the scale is based on powers of 10. So 20 decibels does not describe an intensity that is double 10 decibels, but rather a sound that is 10 times more intense. Portland’s threshold for unacceptable noise is 92 decibels, measured outside, 8 feet from the venue’s door. The sound of a jackhammer barely surpasses 92 decibels. Let’s put a reasonable limit on noise in Portland that honors our reputable entertainment venues, protects residents and allows for easy enforcement. ~ Margaret Broucek, Portland
Letter: Bear vote was Democrats’ undoing
Portland Press Herald - Wednesday, November 19, 2014 

Re: “Election’s outcome redefines the ‘two Maines’“ (Nov. 14): By allowing the Humane Society of the United States to put the bear-baiting proposal on the ballot, Democrats created fear among hunters concerned about threats of gun control and limits on hunting, energizing that crowd to action. It is probably a safe bet that many in this group lean to the right politically. Gov. Paul LePage won by 32,000 votes but would have taken the election by 46,000 votes if we exclude Portland. It is quite possible that the Democrats could have prevailed in their bid to unseat Gov. LePage had they prevented Question 1 from being on the ballot. ~ Michael A. Smith, Wells
Letter: Bear cleanup
Bangor Daily News - Wednesday, November 19, 2014 

Now that the election is over, let’s ponder this question: After Maine hunters participate in a day-long bear hunt, who is going to pick up all the trash, buckets, barrels and plastic left behind in our beautiful Maine woods? ~ Vivian Long, Caribou
Boston’s First Wind acquired for $2.4 billion
Boston Globe - Tuesday, November 18, 2014 

Wind power has long been considered alternative energy, a niche source of electricity that mostly kept environmentalists happy. But the $2.4 billion acquisition of Boston’s First Wind Holdings Inc. by two companies shows that wind energy is not only serious business, but big business. In a deal announced late Monday, SunEdison Inc., a Missouri solar energy company, and Terraform Power Inc., a Maryland company mostly owned by SunEdison, said they would buy First Wind, which owns and operates about a dozen industrial wind projects in six states, including Maine, and has several projects under development. First Wind chief executive Paul Gaynor said, “In the era of renewables, we’re only in the second inning.”
Regulators cut New England cod quota by 75 percent
Associated Press - Tuesday, November 18, 2014 

The maximum amount of cod that fishermen can take from the Gulf of Maine will be reduced by 75 percent next year, a federal regulatory council decided Tuesday. The New England Fishery Management Council voted to reduce the total allowable cod catch limit from 1,550 to 386 metric tons. Regulators have said the level of cod spawning in the gulf is at an all-time low – 3 to 4 percent of its target level, a steep decline from three years ago.
Psst! Wanna see some carbon dioxide?
Summit Voice - Tuesday, November 18, 2014 

How do you tackle odorless and colorless heat-trapping gases like carbon dioxide and methane NASA, the government agency that literally has the best global perspective on climate change, has just released a new computer generated animation that help show the source of greenhouse gases and how they disperse around the planet. The new visualization helps simulate how those gases will affect our future climate, showing how the plumes of carbon dioxide swirl and shift as winds disperse the greenhouse gas away from its sources. The simulation also illustrates differences in carbon dioxide levels in the northern and southern hemispheres and distinct swings in global carbon dioxide concentrations as the growth cycle of plants and trees changes with the seasons.
MPBN Fails to Cover Both Sides of the First Wind Story — Why?
Citizens Task Force on Wind Power - Tuesday, November 18, 2014 

Where is your reporting on the other sides of this story, MPBN? Would you please show some balance and now do a story speaking with wind opponents and not interview anyone from the wind industry? That would be only fair right? How about digging into the companies' backgrounds to see if there is any Enron lineage? Wouldn't that be in the PUBLIC interest?

Trade deals criminalise farmers' seeds
What could be more routine than saving seeds from one season to the next? After all, that is how we grow crops on our farms and in our gardens. Yet from Guatemala to Ghana, from Mozambique to Malaysia, this basic practice is being turned into a criminal offence, so that half a dozen large multinational corporations can turn seeds into private property and make money from them.

Op-Ed by Ben Martens - On Nov. 5, the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission’s Northern Shrimp Section met in Portland and, after a scientific presentation, voted unanimously to close the shrimp fishery for another year. The handful of fishermen and processors in the room pleaded for a short season - anything to keep boats on the water. However, the results of the annual survey and stock assessment showed the second lowest biomass on record (the lowest was in 2013).

But Finland’s organic fruit farmers have a swarm of new allies in the battle against grey mold. Dr. Heikki Hokkanen, a researcher at the University of Helsinki, has enlisted bees to carry biological treatments from flower to flower, warding off disease as they pollinate.

High prices for corn and other crops (in part driven by the growth of ethanol) made feed costs incredibly high, while at the same time, environmental and animal welfare advocates have been winning ballot and marketplace battles to shift more meat production out of intensive confinement and industrial systems.
