I was respondign to this

there were 145 wind farm fatalities in the UK alone from 2009 - 2013 145 people died working on wind turbines

The report says

"Fatal accidents
Number of fatal accidents: 105
By year:
Year 70s 80s 90s 00 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 10 11 12 13
No. 1 8 15 3 1 4 4 4 5 5 11 8 7 14 14 3
Please note:
There are more fatalities than accidents as some accidents have caused multiple fatalities.
Of the 146 fatalities:
- 89 were wind industry and direct support workers (divers, construction, maintenance, engineers, etc), or small turbine owner /operators.
- 57 were public fatalities, including workers not directly dependent on the wind industry (e.g.
transport workers). 17 bus passengers were killed in one single incident in Brazil in March 2012."

From your link, "17 bus passengers were killed in one single incident in Brazil in March 2012", is there a Brazil in the UK ?

Dont get sucked in by prooganda.

It would be easier to accept if the numbers where not coming from an anti-wind farm group, but to answer my own question, deaths can occure from wind power from
  - Transport/Construction
  - Structual failure (from storms)
  - Ice throw (impact within 140m)
  - Turbine failure (anti-wind farm group says turbines need to be 2km away to be safe)

It looks like a large chunk of the 146 deaths in the history of Wind Power are attributable to transport and consturction. Which i think should be attributable to general construction risk, unless there is specific evidence that wind tower transport and construction is inherently more dangerous that other things like tall buildings.

Forbes artical says 150 deaths deaths/trillionkWhr from wind power, but your link cant find 150 total deaths in the history of wind power.

Total energy consuption in 2008 was 143,851 TWh, and wind in 2010 was 2.5% of the total energy generation (and growing fast), perhaps its was 1.25% in 2008. So 143851*0.0125 =1798 TWh from wind.

Your link says 150 deaths per TWh, which equates to 270,000 people beign killed eveyr year from wind power. Do you believe that ?

You do society a great injustice by spreading mis-truths.

If he is new to electronics he would have already experienced many different methods of physically locking things in place, each with its own advantages and disadvantages.

Can you explain why you think physically locking things in place is NOT a trivial exercise for a phone ?

I would fight for their right to express those views

But would you fight for the right to express your views if you dont have the right to record the experiences that document where those views come from.

In my initial post i was tyrign to highlight the hypocracy between promoting freedom of speech (right ot be a bigot) and a right to privacy in public (banning google glasses).

Freedom of speech is pointless is your expreineces are limited,
or do you think freedom of expression is only necessary for fiction.

In other news in Australia our Attorney General is defending free speech, in particular the right to express racist views.

So if you record someone being a racist in a public place, the racist calls the cops and get the witness to racism put in jail.
