We live in an unprecedented age of information and computing power — yet whether publicly or privately, we still make decisions largely on how we feel rather than based on hard information. With this massive influx of data and computing power, when it comes to issues like global warming or gun control — and much of what is being shown as data is false — we are more likely to decide based on how we feel about an issue than spending a comparatively little time figuring out the facts and then making what would be the right decision for us.
