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).
