I was writing under the assumption we'd be familiar with basic real world total MWhour generation statistics and you would read the link to the post above.
For example looking at the biggest windfarm in the southern hemisphere like the Macarthur Wind Farm https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macarthur_Wind_Farm
Published real world total generation for 2015 977.9 GWh or 977,900 MWh.
977,900(MWh) / 8760(hours in a year) = 111MW average power generation
obviously we are talking about different "real world numbers".
I also gave you a link.
German offshore wind capacity in 2017: 3,295MW
German offshore wind farms generated 4.8 billion kWh of electricity in the first quarter of 2017
1st Quarter of 2017 was 90 days or 2160hours
4.8 billion kWh / 2160h = 2,2GW average
Btw, this is a capacity factor of 67%, imho quite good and much higher than capacity factors of coal power plants and similar to capacity factors of nuclear power plants in UK

Everyone on ES with their ebikes find it quite important to have a wattmeter on their ebike but weirdly enough you will find these billion dollar projects struggle to find their wattmeter data or post it on very dubious renewable energy news websites.
Maybe in your country. In Germany this is easily available: https://www.eex-transparency.com/
If you're happy to produce more radioactive waste in a foreign country via wind turbine production then a nuclear power-plant and pretend its useful power generation that's fine, I would bet there are a lot of people who are happy with this arrangement even China, but don't pretend it's not happening.
I still don't see where a wind power plant produces more radioactive waste than a nuclear power plant inkl uranium mining.
Having cheap electricity is more effective on having a better performance economy than even having a cheap currency Chinas government know this and have their policies in place as this is key. The core part of the game is to fool other countries into deliberately increasing electricty prices.
Countries with more expensive electricity won't even be able to compete on basic stuff like this guy making springs

Or this business start up merely trying to process and export milk products
well, maybe you are into something here and this is the reason, why Germany's industry has so many troubles to export their products, especially since we stared to use significant amounts of renewable energy since 2000.
There is only one wind turbine producer that doesn't use neodymium magnets in their turbines (thus requiring a lot more gears/things that wear out) and they freely admit they require a lot more maintenance and thus openly against offshore windfarms claiming the complexity/expense of maintenance offshore makes it completely unviable.
Well. It's possible to build wind power plants without neodymium (as it is possible to buld electric vehicle without it), but so far this seems to be a Chinese problem only. we are not responsible how China is using its mines.
Obviously you seem to care less about their coal or uranium mines and obviously you need to oppose electric vehicle, too, which also use their significant share in neodymium. *)
But maybe we are able to get some numbers straight:
Chinas neodymium mines seems to have produced 90,000 tonnes of thorium waste.
Let's say all of it is related to wind power plants world wide.
Can someone put a activity number on 90,000 tones of thorium in Becquarel? I can not find relibale data on that.
Can someone put on all radioactivity from uranium mines and nuclear facilities waste in Becqarel, too?
In relation to the GW capacity installed this would give at least a rough estimate
I would also like to see numbers on radioactivity released by coal power plants.
Tschernobyl: 4,000,000 to 6,400,000 TBq
Fukushima: 500,000 to 1,000,000 TBq
Kyschtym: 400,000 to 8,900,000 TBq
*) edit: I looked into your posting history and found out about your agenda:
You can do whatever you like, it doesn't bother me. Increasing co2 helps plants grow. Unless the media is manipulating us everyone should know that as basic common knowledge.
Unless of course its not known then it really does highlight manipulation to help push more political power and money in someone's way.
I'm sorry, that I wasted my time doing some research for numbers
Maybe they are useable for other readers.
