New book release: How the world’s religions are responding to climate change: social scientific investigations

Anew book, has just been published on how the world’s religions are responding to climate change through social scientific investigations. The book breaks new ground in looking at climate change with stories and analysis of how different religions are responding to climate change, both positively and negatively. According to the publishers, a great number of voices propose that while those governing the world do not do what is needed to avert the climatic crisis, the world’s religions may play an important role in this field.

There are already faiths addressing the consequences of climate change for humanity and especially for the poor. The writers, sociologists, anthropologists, geographers and other social scientists, use social sciences to explore how religious institutions, groups and individuals contribute to public awareness on climate change. The effect religions are having, the obstacles they run into or create and the significance of their contribution for the struggle against climate change is assessed.

The book is available from Routledge
