Global Climate Stewardship
Scripture informs me, as a disciple and lay-speaker, that humanity has been called to a service of Stewardship to Creation, and that I must witness to others as to this mission as its evangelist.
As an ex urban-planner and conservationist, I studied (and participated in) the long tradition in society of debating the intrinsic versus the utilitarian value of nature. While a Religious Studies minor, I studied the long tradition of devout sisters and brothers who viewed nature as a source of wonder and inspiration, rather than as a source of personal power and corporate profit.
By reason, I find it difficult to believe that human (historic and ongoing) impacts to the composition of our atmosphere wouldn't alter its life-sustaining characteristics in some manner.
My experience as a retired archaeologist and preservationist (and as an old man) have shown me the environmental and cultural impacts of prehistoric and historic unsustainable natural resource over-consumption and exploitation.
