Matt Ridley notices Rich Fisher’s observation, and further notices that it’s not noticed by journalists and the main stream media:

Rich Fisher: “One German organic farm has killed twice as many people as the Fukushima nuclear disaster and the Gulf Oil spill combined.”

    Spurious comparison…. why not contrast motorcycle deaths, malnutrition deaths, deaths from arson, coal-mining etc etc ?

    it only makes sense to someone with a political axe to grind

    I think those comparisons are valid also.

    I think his point, and mine to, is the concern about over-reaction. If the same number of people who die in car crashes per year lost their lives instead due to airline crashes … you’d be sure something would happen. Wheras, for whatever reason, death by car crash, apparently, is “expected” whereas death by air crash, is not. It’s funny world.
