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.
