I disagree. You're not interpretting the numbers correctly. 0.003% of all the gas in the atmosphere is ALOT of gas. 9.4% of Americans of working age is ALOT of people. The percentage is misleading you. There are over 200 million Americans of working age.

School officials fear H1N1 virus......
As schools and colleges prepare to welcome students back into session this month, they face an unpredictable yet unavoidable disruption -- pandemic flu.

Why Liberals Fear Global Warming More Than Conservatives Do
By Dennis Prager
Observers of contemporary society will surely have noted that a liberal is far more likely to fear global warming than a conservative. Why is this?
After all, if the science is as conclusive as Al Gore, Time, Newsweek, The New York Times and virtually every other spokesman of the Left says it is, conservatives are just as likely to be scorched and drowned and otherwise done in by global warming as liberals will. So why aren't non-leftists nearly as exercised as leftists are? Do conservatives handle heat better? Are libertarians better swimmers? Do religious people love their children less?
What percentage of Americans actually pay their mortgage on time? This is not a question that gets asked a lot. For those lucky enough to catch the nightly news tonight, you caught them talking about backlash to the bailout bill passed this week. The most interested part of this whole talk though came right at the very end. Right around the 3:20 mark we find out that 92% of Americans pay their mortgages on time. This number seems incredibly high when all you hear about every night is the number of places falling into foreclosure. Check out the video below to see for yourself.
