Tell a lie, a little lie…actually tell a great big whopper

The left wing like to tell lies. Big lies.

Danyl McLauchlin is no different. With his post about energy deaths he tells a lie, but buries the lie inside a bit of truth. He posts the following image:

The infographic is true, it comes from here. But then Danyl tells the lie, and it is quite a whopper. I’d point it out in his comments but he deletes every comment I make there. Another nice left wing trick, suppression of information they don’t like. Still, Danyl tells the lie:

The fatality rate of renewable sources like wind and hydro aren’t included, but they’re smaller than nuclear by a significant margin.

Sure they aren’t included in the infographic but the stats are included at the link and as you can see Danyl has lied big time. Renewables are included, even hydro and wind (bold) and they are in fact larger than nuclear by a significant margin.

Energy Source              Death Rate (deaths per TWh)

Coal – world average               161 (26% of world energy, 50% of electricity)
Coal – China                       278
Coal – USA                         15
Oil                                36  (36% of world energy)
Natural Gas                         4  (21% of world energy)
Biofuel/Biomass                    12
Peat                               12
Solar (rooftop)                     0.44 (less than 0.1% of world energy)
Wind                                0.15 (less than 1% of world energy)
Hydro                               0.10 (europe death rate, 2.2% of world energy)
Hydro - world including Banqiao)    1.4 (about 2500 TWh/yr and 171,000 Banqiao dead)
Nuclear                             0.04 (5.9% of world energy)

So despite Chernobyl and Fukushima, nuclear energy remains the safest and ironically the greenest source of energy known to man. But Danyl didn’t want you to know that, he preferred to tell a lie.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
