      In science class in third grade, we read about how the sun would go nova one day and turn the earth into a ball of lifeless rock.

      Our teacher asked us if we thought that was true.  When the class assented, she said that she didn't believe it, because God had said he would take care of his people.

      is the much wider community of people who mean well but who honestly seem to think that doing "the right thing" will prove profitable enough to companies that we don't have to rethink our economic approach in order to address social or environmental justice.

      I run into them daily. They're running our state EPA. I live with it, because encouraging companies to do what they can do without losing profit is better than nothing. But there will come a point where we need to highly prioritize factors other than profit, and get to work making policy that provides for needs other than those of corporate balance sheets.
