Every single time that you fire up your fossil-fueled vehicle you're releasing deadly fumes into you, your family, the community and the Earth as a whole. You're releasing a significant amount whether it's immediately harmful or it has an accrued effect from many users. Who knows? There could be immediate effects to you and yours, and maybe the gas industry has paid off everybody to just not mention it. They certainly have enough money and political influence to carry such a thing off. How long was it actually known that asbestos and the formaldehyde in your furniture and carpets were deadly before it was made public?
A container for thorium could easily be made and be made small and light enough to safely use it in any vehicle you can imagine. Sure some terrorists could use it as a weapon. They have also blown up oil wells releasing tons of toxic fumes already. I don't see anybody crying in their beer about that! Do you?
Not to mention the PCB's that were dumped along our North Carolina highways. It had been done for years because it saved a few bucks. They knew it was deadly. The government knew. It took a whistleblower to bring it to the publics attention. Everybody except John Q. Public already knew about it.
