What are your sources for those numbers? They don't seem completely off, but it would be nice to know what year they were from, etc.

Those 20% include several lumped-together categories. 20% were on different kinds of welfare in 2010, but that includes the disabled (not sure what year your 12% is from, though - hard without sources...), a special early retirement program, and welfare directed to getting people back into work.

Also, note that close to all teachers - from kindergarten up to and including university, most doctors and most nurses are employed by the government in Norway and other Scandinavian countries.

Excerpt:
In other words, CO2 does not initiate the warmings, but acts as an amplifier once they are underway. From model estimates, CO2 (along with other greenhouse gases CH4 and N2O) causes about half of the full glacial-to-interglacial warming.

It's nice that you always remember which buisnesses are allowed to send you newsletters.

Don't you think it's plausible that someone signs up for a newsletter, and when they get it 3 weeks later have forgotten, and mark it as "spam"? Wouldn't that be a problem with the suggested anti-spam system, especially for smaller buisnesses?
