[5]Ethics And Global Climate Change
    Links:
      5. http://b.rw/pUPV5K

Anonymous | Philosopher's Beard | 27 September 2011

Well-argued case for adopting a pragmatic approach to climate change. It's
  "wrong to fixate on an impossible problem and seek a perfect solution
  without reference to wider ethical issues, and political and practical
  feasability" [6]Comments

Joe Brockmeier | ReadWriteWeb | 28 September 2011

Clever take on Kindle Fire tablet. Specifically its custom browser, which
  uses Amazon's cloud services to speed up web pages. If let loose on PC
  market, could threaten Google Chrome. So using Android hasn't made Amazon a
  Google ally [8]Comments

Larry McMurtry | NYRB | 1 October 2011

Scathing portrait of Republican challenger as "another slicked up
  trashmouth". His "only salient principle seems to be that all attention is
  good." Lazy. There's a bit of Reagan about him, but it's Reagan's bad side,
  not his good [10]Comments

Stephen Moore | WSJ | 1 October 2011

Too bad fossil fuels aren't in vogue. Harold Hamm thinks he's sitting on 24
  billion barrels of prime US oil. With more drilling he claims he could raise
  $18 trillion in royalties for the government. What if he's even half right?

Esmeralda Bermudez | LA Times | 1 October 2011

"By the sixth night, David La Vau was convinced he was going to die."
  Injured, he lay stranded in a remote forest. His only company? The ruins of
  the car he drove off a cliff face. And the decomposing body of the man he
  crashed into [14]Comments

Paul Hayward | Observer | 2 October 2011

On Man City footballer's refusal to go on as a substitute. Today's "one-man
  corporations" no longer loved symbols of aspirational society. They operate
  in swirl of greed, restlessness, insecurity. And fans can turn on them
  quickly [16]Comments
