Ok let's say that only 60% of experts agree that man is the primary cause of the current trends. A number that I pulled out my anus, and is surely way too low.

I'm going to go with 60% of the experts.

Incidentally, those are the 60% that aren't on the payroll of the oil or coal industry.

congratulations, you correctly identified that not everything in the list was a fact. here's your cookie.

the OPINIONS of the people on that list were ultimately formed based on facts, either real ones or fake ones doled out by alarmists, quacks, or fox news. my point stands.

because the topics mentioned aren't opinions, they are facts - there is no room for someone to have an opinion on whether "the Earth is getting warmer mostly due to human activity" for instance. Either it is, or it isn't, and facts overwhelmingly point to yes. By denying those facts we are totally fucking ourselves in the ass, pardon my french.

holy crap facebook should pay you a million dollar salary for noticing the glaring flaw in their solution. it's a shame that their team of experts were unfamiliar with this 'hard drive' technology you speak of. If only they had done more research!

Good thing we have you, stoned_ritual, expert on the subject, to chime in with a better solution!
