How safe is wind energy?
Wind energy is safe and, unlike coal-fired power stations, they do not produce toxic cancer causing dioxins, or the particulate pollution in the air that is highly damaging to human health. Nor do they contribute to climate change - the biggest environmental threat we face, a bigger threat than global terrorism according to the UK Government's Chief Scientist.

Safety levels for construction and maintenance staff are similar to equivalent industries. (1)
