The United Methodist News Service posted to its website a comprehensive and complimentary article about Hospitable Planet: Faith, Action, and Climate Change. This resulted from the United Methodist Women selecting Hospitable Planet for its 2018 reading program. You can find the article at this link: http://www.umc.org/news-and-media/using-biblical-texts-to-guide-climate-action
I am very grateful that the book is receiving this exposure for, after more than two dozen talks at congregations, I continue to believe that members of the Christian and Jewish communities can serve as powerful forces urging action on climate change.
Reminders of biblical teachings, coupled with scientific reasons for action, bring essentially uncontestable arguments to the debate: an energy company executive, or a politician, is not going to challenge a teaching of Jesus or a verse in Deuteronomy.
Let us put our beliefs into action and call for Environmental Protection, not Environmental Destruction.
