What is the relationship of the world's religious traditions and climate change?
- Some religious leaders and communities have connected their faith traditions to human responsibilities towards the natural world and future generations, and provide strong moral leadership on the issue of climate change.
- A few religious traditions have connected their faith traditions to beliefs that God, not humans, controls the weather and the future.
- Some analysts compare the “global warming worldview” to a religious movement; see for example “The Religion of Global Warming”
- A study of a religious tradition’s response to climate change is a valuable tool for understanding that tradition’s stand on fundamental moral and theological issues, such as how human beings should act in the world.
