Workers killed

For the production of magnets in the wind turbines, the expensive and difficult to extract earth metal Neodymium is required. In Baotou (China), neodymium is separated from uranium and thorium which, along with other toxic chemicals, are dumped in basins and lakes, contaminating groundwater and high levels of toxic air in the air. A serious damage to the environment. The construction of the wind turbines mentioned in the energy agreement kills hundreds of Chinese workers and makes thousands of people seriously ill.
