Some Perspective

Before you sell your uranium shares it might be worth realising:-

Over the next five years some six and a half million people will be killed in road accidents and a further five million will be seriously injured or maimed for life.

Over the next five years it is possible but not certain that a few dozen people might die as a result of the Fukushima nuclear plant incident with a few hundred being seriously injured or maimed for life.

If we removed motor vehicles from the world and reverted to horse drawn traffic we could save more people than Hitler managed to burn in a similar period. Of course, they won't admit it but in fact that's what the Greens would like to see. Terribly organic, those horse drawn buggies.



Then the Greens would complain about the poor bastards who got kicked to death on the corner of Queen St and Wellesley St when a document courier's steed panicked after seeing a reflection of Winston Peters in a shop window.

Good post Adolf, but this part is not strictly correct-

"If we removed motor vehicles from the world and reverted to horse drawn traffic we could save more people than Hitler managed to burn in a similar period."

We wouldn't save anyone. Deaths would increase for many reasons. Not the least because of the drop in living standards that such a move would cause. Less prosperity means less health and less life span.

The Watermelons never cost their anti-prosperity ideas in loss of life, when they should. Its all part of their inherent dishonesty.

We must work hard to destroy them and their agents in the media and the education system. All they have is deceit, and we must puncture that deceit.

Sorry to burst your bubble Adolf, but you are wrong when it comes to the walking cans of Fido/ Pal. Here is an excerpt from Levitt & Budner's book superfreakonomics pgs 8-11:
"at the turn of the C20th some 200k horses lived and worked in NY city, or 1 for every 17 people.
But oh the troubles they caused!
horse-drawn wagons clogged the streets terribly, and when a horse broke down, it was often put to death on the spot. This caused further delays....
it was frighteningly easy to be struck down by a horse or wagon, neither of which is as easy to control as they appear in the movies, especially on slick, crowded city streets. In 1900, horse accidents claimed the lives of 200 NY'ers, or of every 17000 residents. In 2007, meanwhile, 274 NYers died in Automobile accidents, or i of every 30000 residents. This means that a New Yorker was nearly twice as likely to die from a horse accident in 1900 then from a car accident today."
So someone has actually studied the incidences, and horses are more dangerous than motor vehicles. If you add in the inflation that would be caused to food prices to feed the blighters, and then have to add in the Carbon taxes to cover their emissions, you are on a hiding to nothing. The greens should get their heads out of the horses arse and actually recognisse that the world today is a much safer and sustainable place than anytime in history.

sorry, that should read 1 of every 17000 residents for the equinocides, and 1 of every 30000 for the automobile.

Why what's happened in Japan should be an ENDORSEMENT of nuclear power.

Redbaiter - the Greens, and people like them have been with us forever. It's just for some reason in our 'enlightened' times we take too much notice of them.

Back in the late 1800's the then version of the Greens were proclaiming the world was going to die under a mound of horse poo, and we should all go back to walking. I kid you not.

Of course history shows just how off track they were. Thank God for the arrival of the automobile.
