I am all for windfarms and the idea of "goin green" but I do agree that the only way forward for reliable "clean" energy is Nuclear.

Weren't there really??? Better get your facts right!!!

In the 1920s there were more deaths on British roads than there are now - and no these are NOT adjusted figures!!!

"In 1934, 7,343 people were killed on Britainís roads, despite there being just 2.4 million vehicles on the road, 1.5 million of which were cars, compared to over 30 million in 2003"

Couldn't find the actual figures for 1952 but they do say it was really bad because of all the smog!!!!

"In 2002 more than 300,000 people were victims of road accidents, of which more than 3,400 were killed and 36,000 seriously injured. "
Guardian Jan.004

Sorry codders- you were right - but just look at the victimes and seriousely
injured- pretty alarming- I suppose in 1952 there were no air-bags and safety belts- but 300.000 victims that's a lot of people

Yes but when you look at number of injuries for miles driven etc the figures are very low - you are probably safer in your car these days than at home!!!
