Wind Energy Has Killed More Americans Than Nuclear
The damage done to the nuclear power stations in Japan by the Tsunami, has given every gong banging moon barking Green Libtard the opportunity to bray endlessly about nuclear holocaust scenarios and how nuclear power is finished, and the only answer lies in those globally hated symbols of the Church of Climatology, the wind turbine.
In the United States, since 1970 accidents on wind farms have killed 35 people, in the same time period no one was killed in a nuclear accident.
Wind farms provide America with just 0.7% of it’s energy needs:
There has been quite a bit of hysteria among some major media outlets in the past few days regarding the potential dangers of nuclear power. Some have even suggested that the benefits of nuclear energy do not outweigh its potential dangers to human life.
The dangers of nuclear power, while serious, need to be put in perspective. To that end, here’s an interesting fact you won’t be hearing from the mainstream press: wind energy has killed more Americans than nuclear energy.
You read that right. According to the Caithness Windfarm Information Forum, there were 35 fatalities associated with wind turbines in the United States from 1970 through 2010. Nuclear energy, by contrast, did not kill a single American in that time.
The meltdown at Three Mile Island in 1979 did not kill or injure anyone, since the power plant’s cement containment apparatus did its job – the safety measures put in place were effective. Apparently the safety measures associated with wind energy are not adequate to prevent loss of life.
Nuclear accounts for about nine percent of America’s energy, according to the Energy Information Administration, and has yet to cause a single fatality here. Wind, on the other hand, provides the United States with only 0.7 percent of its energy, and has been responsible for 35 deaths in the United States alone. So if we’re trying to weigh the costs and benefits of each, it seems wind fares far worse than nuclear. Yet no one seems to be discussing plans to halt production of all new wind farms until Americans’ safety can be guaranteed.
It is doubtful that this story will ever appear in the MSM, they are far too busy pushing scary nuclear holocaust stories and acting like the devastated landscapes around the power station were ground zero, not the full force of a weather event, which was not caused by whatever the AGW scam is currently called.
