Forget the human density. What we really want to know is how much pressure we are putting on the Earth.
And for that we need to know the surface area of the soles of our shoes (and the local gravity).
1. Great, I want all the data on how to make an atom bomb provided in a neat easy to use format.
2. I accept that the viewer is ultimately responsible for their own due diligence, but why am I paying for a newspaper if the media aren't being held to reasonable standards of diligence?
Asking a scientist to show you their data before they have had a chance to analyse it is like asking a novelist to show you their storyline notes before the book is written. Or asking an office worker or government official to show you an incomplete report.
Generating the data is part of a process. You wouldn't interrupt any other professional half way through a major project and demand they give you what they've got and then judge them on it.
'Hey builder, I've paid for the frame you've built for my house. Now, despite our contract, for you to build me a house, I'm going to demand that you give me the frame, so I can get someone else to finish it. No, it doesn't matter if you've already bought the bricks, or if you already understand the plans, I'm sure someone else can do just as good a job.'
Please, give me a break. Scientists are paid to generate science, not data!
Forget the shark-mount. I have to turn my own pages!?
Oh well, I guess I'll just stick to buying books that are advertised as page turners.
