I love how safe and clean wind turbines are...

    People killed in the US due to wind turbines: 67
    People killed in the US due to nuclear power plants: 0

    Just saying...

    On a population of 300 million 67 deaths over the years is peanuts.
    The disaster in Tsjernobyl took a toll of 50.000+ deaths and the same could have happened in that mile island USA and more recently Japan.

    Saying that wind energy is more dangerous than nuclear energy is just ignorant.

    Chernobyl was a joke standard wise compared to the US standards and as long as you don't build plants on fault lines or in a place prone to earthquakes & tsunamis it's the safest, most effective source of energy.

    I'm sure the numbers would look very different if you didn't just pull them out of your ass.

    Land made uninhabitable by radioactive fallout: *insert random number*
    Land made uninhabitable by wind turbines: 0

    Just saying...

    I didn't pull them out of my ass, I said IN THE USA, which isn't a backwards country like Ukraine, yet.

    Well on the plus side we're getting there by the DOW going down over 600+ points today :D

    That makes it what? 1200+ points down since we raised the debt ceiling? Lol, I see that's working well...

    In soviet russia, statistics pull YOU our of their ass.

    seriously though, I put no value in a random number you put up on the screen. even the chernobyl numbers run between 64 and 985,000 depending on how you count them.

    the fact that it's zero is really suspicious too. Clearly those numbers are being limited to only those directly associated with radiation from nuclear power plants while the wind turbines numbers get to include people who have been electrocuted or fallen off the towers.

    I'm glad to see you hold your co-earthlings in such high regard.

    What is your point there? Fact remains that the US and Japan also almost suffered a nuclear disaster like Tjernobyl. It doesn't matter how save US or German or whatever Nuclear facilities are. One mistake.
    One. miniscule. mistake. And you potentially have the deaths of millions of people.
    Put your damn nationalist feelings aside for one moment will you.

    Also, wind turbines ARE cleaner since the amount of coal nuclear facilities need is pretty high.
    And then i'm. not talking about the nuclear waste.
    Which is left to rot in the oceans and space.
    For thousands of years.

    You get the drift

    Well. The solution is quite obvious. See all you have to do is get a USB Power cord. Plug one end into your USB port and the other side into your power cable port. INFINITE ENERGY.

    Also,
    >implying wind energy isn't clean or safe.

    Instead of comparing Wind / Nuclear. How about we compare Wind/Nuclear to traditional sources of energy. Coal, oil, Etc. Those are the ones we are supposed to be moving away from and to be quite frank, switching to EITHER wind or nuclear as a majority source would be fantastic.

    Since debt law was signed...

    Google - 604 down to 544. (-60 or -10%)
    Cisco - 15.7 down to 13.79 (-1.91 or -8.2%)

    I've seen it. I was thinking about a clip from a simpsons episode though, but since FOX doesn't want to share the simpsons with youtube I can only show you this link: http://www.snpp.com/episodes/AABF11

    Neither of them are dangerous. Objects are only dangerous in the hands of people who deserve to get hurt by them through ignorance and missuse. People who think they are dangerous are idiots.

    I would buy a house next to a nuclear plant and not worry at all.

    Im looking forward to the point where its cheaper to simply round poor/stupid people up and convert them into energy.

    Some total creeper made a movie about that. Answer: Just don't.

    EDIT: Oh look, somebody beat me to it.

    And yeah, Nuclear Plants are only as dangerous as the planning committees are stupid. Nuclear plants in japan were always a risk. It's a highly unstable area. Also, whoever planned the INSIDE of those facilities... Lacked common sense. You know where they stored the spent reactant*? In a concrete bunker. Located ABOVE the reactor. WHYYYY? I always thought that kind of stuff went underground...

    -

    *Used the word "reactant" because I couldn't be bothered to go and look to confirm if the proper term for Nuclear Plants was cores, rods, tanks or something else. I don't tend to keep that kind of info on the quick-access portion of my brain.
