(p.111) Chapter 4 Religious Environmentalism in Action
A Greener Faith

Roger S. Gottlieb

Oxford University Press

This chapter elucidates religious environmentalism as a worldwide movement of political, social, ecological, and cultural action. As expressions of a particular religion, in ecumenical alliances with other traditions, through loose networks of spiritually committed activists, and in coalitions with secular environmental organizations, hundreds of groups have resisted global warming, destructive economic “development,” dangerous toxic waste dumps, reckless resource extraction, mindless consumerism, and simple waste. Believers have shown, in a wonderful pattern of interfaith cooperation, that they are capable of actively working with people whose theologies are quite different from their own.

Keywords:   religious environmentalism, worldwide movement, ecumenical alliances, secular environmental organizations, global warming, destructive economic development, interfaith
