How is wind energy not safe?

As far as I know, there are only two safety factors: the first

is the support and rigging system. In adverse weather, if the

rigging is not sufficient or proper, the entire unit could fall

over. The second is not really aimed toward people, but most people

care about it. Birds tend not to notice some turbine designs,

resulting in injury or death of birds. The only other hazard

(electric shock) is present in every method of energy

generation.


Wind energy helps in

the creation of millions of jobs, generates electricity, and

reduces greenhouse gas emissions. Until recently there are some

concerns regarding the protection of birds, there are however

measures that can be taken to reduce their fatality. P
