#3895: Comparing apples and oranges, again.

Because that's the only way to make nuclear power worse for birds than windmills. And even then, the anti-nuclear gits have to make shit up.

Simply put, the guy who made that asinine claim includes birds killed in the mining of uranium for nuclear power plant fuel. But that's not nuclear power generation; that's mining. And at the same time, the guy cherry-picks data to make it look like mining uranium kills a shitton of birds.

In order to make the comparison more apt, then, the guy should include the mining of materials used to build windmills. That means copper, rare-earth metals, and aluminum. How many birds die at those mines?

It's just more anti-nuclear propagandizing, and that's all it is.
