Quote of the Day:

Earth’s atmosphere contains 1.6 x 1044 atoms, and each breath we take consists of 8 x 1022 atoms. To get some sense of that last number, if each of those atoms of air were a grain of sand, every breath you took would cover the entire United States to the depth of an eight-story building… each breath you take includes air that passed out of the lungs of everyone who has ever lived, at least up to a hundred or so years ago.

I think we are beginning to see a sort of nervous breakdown or identity crisis among the more bombastic and public knee jerk skeptics. It is kind of fascinating to watch them unravel.
