2.
The key factor, apparantly.
I wish I could tell you more perfect news, but were in a rating system here, and the key factor is "sensationalism". They've got you running around in circles, 9-5, and 5-9. Your mine, I tell you what they want you to know, and you concider it the truth. NOBODY IS OPENING THEIR EYES, OUR WHOLE ECONOMY IS DEPLETING THE WORLD OF OUR LIVES AND NATURAL RESOURCES. AND ARE YOU HAPPY. COME ON, I WORK FOR THE SYSTEM!
