A statement by Maine Earth First! followed the Tuesday conviction of two of its associates for their role in a Franklin County demonstration last summer. Maine Earth First!’s Jessie Dowling says the group feels strongly that industrial wind is a false solution to climate change. The Sun Journal reports members remain committed to defending Maine’s mountain forests as a habitat for rare and endangered species. On Tuesday a Franklin County Superior Court justice sentenced Erik Gillard of Plainfield, Vt., and Willow Cordes-Eklund of Minneapolis, both 27, to serve 10 days in jail and pay $500 fines. The two were involved in a protest against a wind project in Kibby Township.
