Uranium[edit]

I find it hard to believe that 5.2 million tons of Uranium are carried by this current each year. I'm not even sure that much Uranium exists on this planet. I've added a request for a cite. I'm tempted to remove it outright. (Sonlee 14:24, 1 January 2007 (UTC))

I took it out, even though it has a cite, because it seems like an odd factoid. I think it may well be true - not having looked at the calc or anything - but unremarkable.
For ref, twas:
There is a concentration of uranium passing through this current every year (between 5 and 6 million tons).[1]
