Description


Anthropogenic climate change is among the most significant and far-reaching social issues of our time. Although climate scientists are near unanimous about potentially catastrophic consequences, mobilizing a meaningful response has proven to be a real challenge. Among the significant but understudied responses has been that of religious groups. Numerous statements on climate change by faith-based actors and institutionalized religious groups have occurred in recent years. This book fills the gap in research on faith-shaped action by religious institutions, groups and individuals.
