The writer remained objective and gave a rounded account of the environment. I thought it was different because it gave a positive outlook on the progress we have made. This is more effective then the usual scare tactics since it shows growth and hope for the future.
I thought it was one sided and didn't have enough facts. For instance the writer often said things like the numbers have grown over the past years, but then didn't give the numbers or statics that seemed reliable. I did think it was a passionate article and that it drew attention and equally passionate responses.
