While it is true that the original scope of the intelligence community were not to enforce the law, that role is increasingly becoming part of their previously secret budget. Or that budget just increases with the collaboration between the different alphabet soup agencies. A microscopic gap indeed. That gap is non-existent to foreigners especially if you are in certain regions of Pakistan and Yemen under a CIA drone.

Here are your citations! plantsneedco2.org says warmer is better then colder. They have lots of facts that seem logical and scientifically sound. Like this bit:
We have determined that CO2 's influence, while significant at low concentrations in the atmosphere, is of minor impact as more and more is added to the atmosphere...
It must be true because that is what I have been saying all along without any research or experimentation. [end sarcasm]
Honestly, what is even more troubling to me is other potential problems that might be caused by co2 like the acidity of the oceans.
Yet, when I talk to a self-identified Conservative that denies global warming and I mention other potential risks of co2 (such as the aforementioned) the response is childish at best. We can agree humans are putting a lot of c02 in the atmosphere at unprecedented rates. Yet, global climate change is outside of our influence.
How many papers have been published and peer reviewed in journals that support the current consensus of the scientific community? Isn't it like 97-98% of all papers submitted in regards to global warming have verifiable data to reach the conclusion that we are indeed impacting the climate in a warming sort of way. How many for the deniers???
I will just leave with this quote from plantsneedco2.org and let your head explode.
CO2 (carbon dioxide) is one of the drivers and while everyone agrees that CO2 does contribute to climate change as a greenhouse gas, the magnitude of CO2 's influence has not been settled within the overall scientific community, the political systems, the media or the population in general.
I like my coal smug cloud.
employer started demanding constant unpaid overtime
There is a difference between your employer demanding OT and you feel obligated/want to put in additional OT. Either because you have a vested interest in the project your working on or your the only one putting in the minimum when everyone else (including the founders/owners who are developers) put in OT.
Similar situation as you (4 years experience with undergrad). I love my job and the company/people I work with, however, I feel I do not carry my weight if I do not put in at least 45-50 hours a week. The job market is strong enough to easily relocate. But the OT is a small price to pay for who I work with, where I work, and what I work on.
I only have 4 years in the workforce and in that time I had a few bad places to work that had a direct effect on my health. I can only imagine after 20 years of crappy jobs you finally find one that is what you have been looking for. The only thing, OT is an unwritten rule. I already made the choice to go with OT to at least have the satisfaction and enjoyment of the work I do with the people I work with.
