I spent some time recently talking to far right Christian political candidates about the environment. Some acknowledged environmental issues as important but their visceral dislike of the Greens and of environmentalists in general was palpable. For that reason I was pleased to be interviewed for this timely and scholarly assessment of where the Greens stand visa viz Christianity - and the Judeo Christian ethic more generally. I was also pleased to get an honourable mention.
You will find the article at the link below, and I have reproduced it here. What it reveals (in my view) is an increasing schism in Western Christianity between industrial and post industrial values. This is something I explore in more detail in my book.
