There is a fantastic article in today’s New York Times (reprinted here) about growing environmentalism in the christian religous community.

These church leaders, scientists, writers and heads of international aid agencies argue that global warming is an urgent threat, a cause of poverty and a Christian issue because the Bible mandates stewardship of God’s creation.
