Submitted by robertgnewell on 11 February 2014

How the World's Religions are Responding to Climate Change is a new book that exams perspectives on climate change as they relate to different religions across the globe.

While there is a growing literature in theology and ethics about climate change and religion, little research has been previously published about the ways in which religious institutions, groups and individuals are responding to the problem of climate change. Seventeen research-driven chapters are written by sociologists, anthropologists, geographers and other social scientists. This book explores what effects religions are having, what barriers they are running into or creating, and what this means for the global struggle to address climate change. About.
