Proceeds of sales of ‘Blue Deserts’ will benefit the NO To NECEC group.

FARMINGTON – Author Steve Kasprzak’s newly released book, “Blue Deserts,” is now for sale through Devaney, Doak & Garrett Booksellers. A major objective of the book is to reveal that most mega reservoir hydroelectric projects are built and owned by quasi-public entities which are subjected to very little or no environmental oversight.

The author writes, “The primary goal of this book is to inform the public about the profound ecological damage being caused by damming the world’s rivers.”

Kasprzak explains in layman’s terms how hydro dams and their flow regulation have altered marine ocean currents and temperatures, and how they are driving the acceleration of the arctic heat amplification phenomenon with ever expanding global warming feedback loops.

Roger Wheeler, President of Friends of Sebago Lake, Maine, writes: “CMP’s “Clean Energy,” justification for its proposed New England Clean Energy Connect transmission line through Maine connecting Hydro-Quebec’s dams with Massachusetts was the catalyst for Steve to write the book, “Blue Deserts.”

Steve Kasprzak has generously offered to donate proceeds of the first 200 books sold to go directly to: Say NO To NECEC to assist with the legal effort to reject CMP’s destructive corridor through western Maine.

The book, “Blue Deserts,” is for sale at Devaney, Doak & Garrett Booksellers located in Farmington, Maine. To purchase the book, please call: DDG Bookstore at 778-3454 or e-mail: info@ddgbooks.com. The price of the paperback book is $21.95. For more information please contact: Wendy Huish at: 778-2586 or e-mail: wendyhsh@gmail.com.

  1. The main problem most people have with the clean energy connect project is the corridor through Maine and the environmental impact. What most people don’t see is the environmental impact to air quality that has taken place over the last 50 years in the form of air pollution caused by the burning of fossil fuels.
    As a young man I worked on top of Bigalow mountain in 1973 in the fire tower. Back then I could use my binoculars and see cars on Main street in Kingfield most days in the summer. Through the years I have hiked Bigalow and watched as the view has diminished more and more until most days in the summer it is difficult to see the airport at the foot of the mountain. This has happened slowly over time and because it has happened slowly most people have not noticed. What people may have noticed as a consequence of this air pollution is the increase of COPD, asthma and other respiratory illnesses. Do you have a child or grandchild with respiratory problems? Did you have those problems when you were a child?
    The impact of burning fossil fuels to our environment and our health has already been much greater in Maine than most realize. In the future we will need more electricity. We are going to get it some way. We can burn more fossil fuels to get it or we can get it from clean renewable sources it’s really just that simple.
