I too prefer less mathy - well, to be precise I'll actually read the less mathy stuff in the first place.

More to the point, I've stopped listening to news reports about global warming - and this is harming my ability to think rationally about it. I'll change the channel instead of hear someone say "You know how we all thought we've got 50 years to live? Turns out it's only 30/25/20."
