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
- 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.
