    MORE LIKELY TO BE HIT BY A METEOR THAN HURT BY WIND

    Homes In More Danger From Meteors & Cars Than Wind Farms

    Mike Barnard, March 17, 2014 (Clean Technica)

    “…[P]ublic health organizations, major utilities, the government, and the wind industry have worked closely together to find [good wind farm setbacks], to establish guidelines and laws, and to put in place modelling software to assist in site planning to minimize impacts…[but anti-wind organizations] are lobbying for much, much bigger setbacks based on no science at all…[A good balance seems to be] 550 meters for smaller wind turbines or groups of wind turbines and up to 1500 meters for larger wind farms…With 300,000 wind turbines or so working today and a large number more decommissioned and replaced, the likelihood of any major event that could possibly cause a human fatality if the circumstances were just right is perhaps 0.01% over the 20-25 years of the wind turbine’s life…Many more houses have been hit by meteorites…[T]he odds of homes being hit by cars is comparatively astronomical…” click here for more
