Re: Different premise, different conclusions.
"If you disagree with this premise then of course you disagree that there is an unprecedented problem society will soon have to solve. I suggest you open your mind and consider that there are those who have more knowledge than you about the technology involved that are sounding the alarm."
Or the cynic in your could say they're just crying wolf to ensure there's more business for them. If people smarter than me were crying alarm for something that, should it be averted, would make THEM redundant (IOW, they're saying to do something that would threaten them), THEN I'll listen.
