"Renaissance Thinking About the Issues of Our Day"
The Good! *German Bank WestLB* Last week - the German bank announced that it would not provide any financing for offshore oil or gas drilling in the Arctic Ocean. WestLB's sustainability manager - Dustin Neuneyer - said that the risks of drilling in the Arctic were simply too high. The Bad! *Missouri State Rep. Dwight Scharnhorst* Scharnhorst is a co-sponsor of the state's so called "Don't Say Gay" bill - which would prevent teachers from talking about LGBT people and issues in public schools. And the Very Very Ugly! *John Harris* Harris - president of the Tennessee Firearms Association - expressed outrage when Republican state politicians refused to support a gun bill that would allow people to bring guns to work - provided they left them in their cars.
