Getting the wind up about atoms

According to Caithness Windfarm Information Forum at www.caithnesswindfarms., 35 fatalities were 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 although nuclear energy accounts for about 9% of American energy production and wind energy for only 0.7%. Multiplying this 0.7% and its associated number of wind farms and fatalities until 9% is reached yields a country consisting almost exclusively of wind turbines and corpses. Facts facts facts.
