Matthew T. Riley and Whitney A. Bauman (eds.) “Wicked Problems in a Warming World: Religion and Environmental Ethics,” Special Edition of “Worldviews: Global Religions, Culture, and Ecology,” 21(1) (2017)

We live in a warming world. Human activity has increased the carbon in the atmosphere, depleted the Earth’s capacity to adapt to change, and temperatures are rapidly rising. Whereas environmental ethics have historically focused on climate change as a crisis to be averted, in this issue we consider climate change as a present, ongoing reality with which religious communities and practitioners are already deeply engaged. In this special issue of Worldviews we focus on climate change as a shifting ethical problem that demands new ways of moral reasoning that are dynamic, multi-generational, pluralistic, and unequivocally global.
