90 or 95%?

Whaddya think, does this passage have 90 or 95% too many words?

The effort of many different views on the issue that has taken place was needed to get to the point where we are right now in dealing with the consequences of drinking.

Uh, I was going to try to edit the sentence to see how many words, in fact, it takes to convey the meaning. But then I realized that it doesn't actually mean anything.

I hope your grading torture is done soon. :-)

A little late on the ball, but I'd go with 100% personally!
