I’ve been quoted in a recent NBC news article: Climate Blues: How Environmentalists Chill Out in a Warming World, by Miguel Llanos which looks at how environmentalists cope emotionally with a perpetual stream of largely negative news. Worth reading for inspiration, although The author didn’t use any of the comments I made about my faith though.
A second article by Shaun Chamberlin on similar themes is also worth reading. Even though he reckons we’ve run out of time already, he remains positive that there are still things to do.
What I was reminded by thinking through the questions from Miguel Llanos–is that sustainability, in Chamberlin’s words, cannot be our God. We have to step back and see the beauty of creation and the positives of humanity. Otherwise, is it worth saving anything?
