…On A Little Bit of Context

Posted by Steve on August 4, 2009

Overall population of the world: ±6,000,000,000 people.
Population of the United States: ±300,000,000 people.
Annual traffic fatalities in the US: ±40,000 people.
Traffic death impact on US population: -.013% per year.
Annual change in US population despite that: Increases.
Annual change in world population: Increases.

Not going to go into more details, but I attended a conference where I thought that was some badly needed missing context.
