Funny thing, different perspective is. When I read the list I immediately thought "THIS one represented real progress!" and a heartening sign of practical thinking by a large, important environmental organization.
Those who don't have an answering machine most likely have voicemail. And just about everyone has the option of having an answering machine. I remember manning the phone tree to tell classmates school was closed for the day, and having to call some people back 5 or 6 times. Those were not the days.
 Note, for ghu's sake, that I said "most likely" and not "certainly." Keep in mind that this list, as are many things on the List, is North American-oriented. The Challenger disaster had a far smaller effect elsewhere.
 Before the Challenger disaster, there was Apollo 1. Truly a worse disaster because the men burned to death.
