Most of the conversation is about whether guns increase or decrease the risk of homicide or suicide. I’m pretty well convinced that the most likely victims of guns in the house are the people in the household, just as most car accidents happen within a short distance from home. But that’s not what I want to talk about. I see another problem that I think is quite significant.<br> Tue, 12 Feb 2013 20:30:00 +0000 Stephen Gottlieb 58090 at http://wamc.org Steve Gottlieb : Capitalism, religion and global warming http://wamc.org/post/steve-gottlieb-capitalism-religion-and-global-warming <p>Global warming is the earth&rsquo;s response to unrestrained capitalism. Everybody gets to make, buy and use whatever they want without regard to how it affects the sustainability of the environment and everyone in it. Drilling in the Gulf, the Arctic or anywhere, hydrofracking in New York, Pennsylvania or anywhere, turning food like corn into oil that can be burned, all make carbon based fuels that contribute to global warming. &nbsp;<br /> Tue, 07 Aug 2012 19:45:00 +0000 44973 at http://wamc.org
