You want it simple.. so do we. Just isn't at the moment.
But I bet you do get some "mula" from some oil related secret consortium bent on destroying Earth for us while moving the climate to a warmer more lizard friendly environment.

I kid.
Well you just do a course correction to compensate for minor perturbations you haven't accounted for.

Tell you what though, it would be nice to get paid just for having an opinion. I forget who it was, but some blogger was asked if they got money from oil companies, his response: "I wish."

Maybe we should ask an oil company to sponsor orbiter-forum.com, if we come with a collective statement that it is our opinion that massive fossil fuel consumption is a good idea.

Global warming is being caused by the hot air coming out of politicians' mouths.
