    I think few Christians would argue that we need to be good stewards of God’s creation. Where we butt heads is over how to go about that. Should we let government determine what is good stewardship, or the market? History has shown repeatedly that governments everywhere and at all times have a terrible record or protecting God’s creation. The marketplace does a wonderful job by placing high prices on scarce resources and low prices on abundant ones.

    Kudos to you on being the first PowerBlogger to include ONN video in your post.

    I remember the day I lost my hovercraft. I’ve been whistling a different tune ever since.
