Go tell that to the fishermen in Greenland ... The only real objections seem to be from those whose economic interests are threatened by the corrective actions.
I'm not going to get into a political debate on this thread (or this forum), but the prevailing belief that theoretical global warming is backed by science is a sucker ploy brought to you by lobbyists and governments desperate to divert public attention from real problems.
The eugenics/global warming analogy is not mine. It belongs to Michael Crichton, author of such hard science based novels as The Andromeda Strain, Jurassic Park, and Sphere. It is the background subject of his newest novel, State of Fear. You can read an essay from the book comparing eugenics and global warming here.
If you're willing to face the truth of the issue, you'll probably enjoy the book. It's a typically Crichton, fast paced, riveting, political thriller. (Properly footnoted with scientific sources, unlike the screaming headlines so easily absorbed by a mob mentality.)
I really would like to know whether or not there is any truth to the hearsay that CD-RWs can not hold a full 700 MB either on the original write or subsequent ones.
