Bill Clinton’s keynote at CES 2013 this week is something to watch. He covers quite a bit of global ground in just twenty minutes.

Clinton sees the three biggest challenges facing the world as inequality, instability, & climate change. He notes that none of these can be solved unless we commit to a progressive vision.

My favorite part is when Clinton talks (at 13:00) about our “unjustifiable neglect of gun safety” to large applause. He says the he grew up in a hunting culture, but that this is “nuts” because “why does anybody need a 30 round clip for a gun? why does anyone need one of those things that carry 100 bullets?”

Clinton says that half of all mass killings in the United States have happened since the expiration of the assault weapons ban in 2005. That’s a shocking figure.

He goes on to say that the Internet can bring us together to help strengthen gun control. I think he’s right and I think it’s incredibly important we all join in demanding a plan

When street artist My Dog Sighs finds litter scattered on the sidewalk, he takes advantage of the situation and turns it into artwork. The artist paints faces on all kinds of crushed cans, giving personality and character to each selected canvas. He says he is “drawn to novelty like a magnet, and loves reaching out to touch every person or thing that is fascinated with its newness.”
