Jack Marshall, President of Advocates for a Sustainable Albemarle Population and Brian Czech, President of the Center for the Advancement of the Steady State Economy joined Coy Barefoot on WINA’s “Charlottesville–Right Now!” to discuss the limits to growth, both population growth and economic growth.

Czech describes a Steady State Economy as one that is stabilized and sustainable at an optimum size. He discusses recent national economic troubles as resulting from unsustainable growth. Marshall argues that stabilizing population growth is key to economic and environmental sustainability.

Czech believes that the decline in family farming, urban sprawl, and environmental decline are related to unsustainable growth and will threaten national security, including food and economic security. 

Marshall describes the importance of sustainability as meaning that “we should be making choices today that don’t limit the choices of our children and children’s children.”

Vincent Bugliosi, New York Times Bestselling author of Helter Skelter and The Prosecution of George W. Bush For Murder, joined Coy Barefoot on WINA’s “Charlottesville–Right Now!” to discuss the evidence and his conclusion that President George W. Bush is guilty of first degree murder.

Bugliosi discusses his role and methods as a true crime writer and lays out his case against George W. Bush for pursuing an illegal war for personal reasons that resulted in the deaths of over 4,000 American soldiers. Vermont Attorney General candidate Charlotte Dennett has pledged that, if elected, she will pursue this prosecution. Bugliosi firmly believes that, if brought to court, he will get a conviction.

The main issue is whether Mr. Bush brought the nation to war out of self defense. If it can be proven that the war was made based on false pretenses, as Mr. Bugliosi’s collected evidence appears to suggest, then murder can be proven. Mr. Bugliosi believes that the death penalty may be appopriate if Mr. Bush is convicted. Bugliosi spoke from Charlottesville, Virginia prior to his talk at the Albemarle County Office Building
