Yes, this is more of a public service announcement. I did not find a story on Google yet but I will, still I thought as a safety issue I should at least bring this up.

Liberals and Democrats, Green Renewable Energy lovers, have a tendency to stare at these things a long time hence they increase their chance of an, "Ice Throw" from a turbine blade hitting them in the head.

I am being a little funny here but at the same time this is a serious issue that is being discussed in the industry. Setbacks for Wind Turbines is a critical issue to ensure public safety.

In the cold areas of the country people should be cautious of the danger.

For wind, the easiest thing to do is adopt a minimum safe distance between wind farms and human habitation and activities. Scanning various attempts and incorporating oddball issues like spinning blades hurling chunks of ice hundreds of feet, it appears as though a mile or so is a reasonable set-back distance to use as a safety measure.
