In the USA this is not a surprise to me, it is a direct result of the media which is sponsored by people via advertisement, and those sponsors want us to keep screwing things up so we buy buy buy. How is this surprising at all? Look at this, made by my state government. In fact, I bet if they refined some of the data by radio station shows people listen to you will find where that 50% is being mislead. I was also going to post a video from Yale University but they seem to have taken it down. Oh well, LET'S GET GARDENING!
