The reality hurts their cause.

Nuclear accounts for about nine percent of America’s energy, according to the Energy Information Administration, and has yet to cause a single fatality here. Wind, on the other hand, provides the United States with only 0.7 percent of its energy, and has been responsible for 35 deaths in the United States alone. So if we’re trying to weigh the costs and benefits of each, it seems wind fares far worse than nuclear. Yet no one seems to be discussing plans to halt production of all new wind farms until Americans’ safety can be guaranteed.

Your analysis is excellent. But facts make no difference to True Believers. Using its successful tool of incrementalism, the hard Left (which counts Cuomo as a member) will create a power shortage, increase prices astronomically and get away with blaming it on “Republican greed and obstructionism.” Just wait and watch.
