Raspberry Pi

The technology you're born with has no history. There's no instinctual difference between animal husbandry and the internal combustion engine, for example - you've had them for your whole life. And the radically new stuff, which to us seems controversial, or faddish, or dangerous, is completely normal to kids. And in 20 years, we'll all think that way, and we'll move on to having the same argument about some new doodad.

Lots of raw numbers, but I think everyone should have them committed to memory when it comes to climate change.
