One of the main questions unanswered here is this: Given that TTA has (presumably) full knowledge of the rail plans, why didn't they offer DOT first crack (or whatever) at the buildings? Would anyone at the TTA talk to you on the record about this? Are the different Triangle transportation organizations in some sort of competition, or are they simply incompetent?
The problem with climate change denialists is the same problem with all the anti-science movement. They do not believe you; not because they are inadequately educated on the facts. They do not believe you because you are _you_ and not _them_; and nothing will change that for them.
"But it's not that simple, some say. Such systems take advantage of old fans by having them invest in a project that's not yet complete, critics say, and create illusions of demand."
Who says such silly things? It would seem that Kickstarter, at least, lets artists presell real, tangible things, for real, tangible money. Is there no penalty for failing to deliver? (because that seems to be the real drawback for fans. Illusion of demand seems to be more of a problem for the artist who - upon getting a new van or whatever - still could show up to an empty club).
I'll echo all the other complaints about appropriate methods of introducing spoilers (hint: it's before, not after. Hope this helps), and add that that Gil Scott Heron reference in the photo caption makes you look like a pretentious jerk, instead of simply a jerk.
So, you got that going for you.
