Title: Christianity and Climate Change: Understanding the Range of Responses

   Since Lynn White's famous article on the relationship between Christianity
and ecological destruction, many environmental activists have accused this
faith community of inaction (or worse - actions that are ecologically
destructive), when it comes to environmental protection and health. However,
recent concerns over climate change have led several scientific and
environmental organizations to begin to build bridges with the range of
Christian traditions - mainline protestant, evangelical, and Catholic -
recognizing that all must be part of the solution to global climate change.
This talk helps get beyond the stereotypes of the relationship between
Christians and the environment. A framework is presented for comparing
Christian traditions in terms of their attitudes toward environmental issues
and policies, along with a discussion of the implications for climate change
