Read the full article. They also lost drivers hitting poles on feencing and had several die from the horrible condition known as Basilar fracture where your head separates from the spine. All due to no run off areas and a concrete walls at the end of a fast straight. Spaulding spaulding 11th January , Whether it makes sense or not, alot of drivers in the past have been resistant to improved safety.
Dale Earnhart was vehemently against the HANS device or any other similar device while he was alive yet the injury that killed him, a basal spinal fracture, would have never happened if he was wearing one. Even the fans are resistant to some of the changes, like safety fencing, because it takes away from the excitement of the race. Even the teams were resistant to changes like getting rid fo the highly flammable magnesium tubs.
Until recently, the only people who ever really forced safety in motorsport were the non-viewing public and the people in charge of the sport. BasCB bascb 11th January , Looks like an interesting addition to any dedicated F1 library. Thanks for the review Keithcollantine , otherwise I would have probably missed hearing about this book.
I think Dale Earndharts collision was measured at 65mph. AndrewTanner andrewtanner 12th January , Sounds like a good read.

At the very least it was quite powerful. Definitely worth the watch. It was all so preventable…. An area's carrying capacity is not static.
The carrying capacity may be lowered by resource destruction and degradation during an overshoot period or extended through technological and social changes. An example of dieback occurred in Ireland after a fungus infection destroyed the potato crop in During this potato famine approximately 1 million people died and 3 million people emigrated to other countries. Increased food production due to improved agricultural practices, control of many diseases by modern medicine and the use of energy to make historically uninhabitable areas of Earth inhabitable are examples of things which can extend carrying capacity.
The question is how long will we be able to keep increasing our population on a planet with finite size and resources? Population Impact Homo sapiens is a species possessing a diversity of individual needs. Thus, sub-populations will have different requirements and different impacts on the environment.
For example million vegetarians will have a significantly different environmental impact than million meat-eaters.
This can be demonstrated by comparing the affect on water supplies by both sub-populations. About tons of water are needed to produce 1 ton of grain.
Add to this the amount of water that goes into the production of meat, and you can see that meat comsumption places more stress on global water supplies than grain consumption.
