1,000 words: Where wind turbines come from
This is an iron mine. Steel is made of iron, and wind turbines are predominantly made of steel. So when the anti-uranium brigade bemoans the incurable dangers of mining and then bows to wind turbines, they’re not being straight with you. Mining isn't pretty but thanks to modern technology and smart engineers, it's perfectly safe and absolutely necessary.

Should we require that all wind turbines, solar panels and transmission lines are made from locally-sourced organic materials?
