Pope Francis’s encyclical, Laudato Si, is an urgent call for politicians, policy makers, and all citizens of planet earth to make care for the environment central in our decision making. He appeals for recognition of the “seamless garment of life” which connects the smallest micro-organism in the biosphere to the life of humans and demands that we extend the notion of rights to all living creatures. Linking environmental degradation to war and poverty, he maintains that only a radical shift in our relationship with the earth will allow future generations to survive and flourish.

Panelists - Jon Erickson, Professor at the Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources, and Fellow of the Gund Institute for Ecological Economics at the University of Vermont - Sister Gail Worcelo of the Green Mountain Monastery - Clive Gray, Retired Third World Development economist, formerly of the Harvard Institute for International Development, share perspectives on the Pope Francis's encyclical Laudato Si.  Keynote address by John L. Allen, Jr. can be viewed here.

Alliance for Community Media says FCC Cable Vote Will Harm Local Media

The proposed rules would allow cable companies to assign market values to these benefits and then charge the amount back to local communities in most cases. Benefits include items like free cable subscriptions to schools, discounts for the elderly, and fiber connectivity to local government buildings like police departments, fire stations, and libraries.
