Dr. Mary Evelyn Tucker: ecology & religion

Neo Frics

Can religion save the planet?

Professor Mary Evelyn Tucker talks about the role religions can play in addressing the ecological problems of our time. Although all major religious traditions predate our modern awareness of the environmental situation, many are strongly rooted in humanitys dependency on natural cycles and the seasons.

Here, Tucker explains how religions are reawakening this sense of connectedness to nature and gives encouraging examples of how eco-activism is emerging across the religious spectrum.
