One often hears of the ways that religions promote climate denial or justify people’s right to wealth and privilege. More recently, however, some of the world’s religions are finding resources within their traditions to support climate justice and care for the earth. Professor Philip Clayton will share with us examples of faith-based communities working constructively together with environmental scientists. The partnerships that result can contribute to environmental activism, decreasing the tensions between religious and ecological thinking and forming fascinating and sometimes unexpected new alliances. Philip Clayton studies the relationships between contemporary science and the world’s religious traditions. A professor in Claremont, CA, he is the author or editor of several dozen books and the president of the Institute for Ecological Civilization (EcoCiv.org).
