Wind Farms: As “Safe as Houses”

STT has worked pretty solidly to cover the increasing numbers of turbine blades that routinely unshackle themselves in bids for airborne freedom, troublesome events, which the wind industry euphemistically calls “component liberation” (see our posts here and here and here and here).

But lately, STT has been working over-time to keep up with the wind industry’s diligent efforts to keep wind farm neighbours on their toes, with turbines collapsing in crumpled heaps and/or throwing their blades to the four-winds all over the world.

Whether it’s in Ireland (see our posts here and here); Scotland (see our posts here and here); Devon (see our post here); Nicaragua (see our post here) – BrazilKansasPennsylvaniaGermany and Scotland – turbines have been crashing back to earth and chucking blades around the country-side – like steroid-fuelled, German hammer-throwers – in frightening numbers.
