Is it "political" to note the gulf between rich and poor - illustrated by the fact that it is the poor who die of mosquito-carried diseases - or just a fact that religious folks might have an interest in? Likewise, is it political to recognize that many European countries have better mass transit than we do and much smaller carbon footprints, or another fact that is worth considering when imagining changes we might make? Why make an issue "political" that concerns all of us and may already causing harm to the poorest among us?
