Indeed, Christianity, with its incarnational orientation, has the unique power to affirm the sacredness of embodied life, fire the imagination, and empower the will to break the cycle of addiction to nonrenewable energy.
Culture, Religion, Ethics, and the Environment
The environmental crisis, he argues, is a crisis not of the head but of the heart. The problem is not that we do not know how to stop climate change but rather that we lack the spiritual resolve to redirect our culture, our economy, and even our religious faith toward a sustainable future. Bold and courageous, Wallace's book is a call to hope, not despaira call for readers to discover meaning and purpose in their embodied lives through a spiritually and erotically charged commitment to saving the Earth.

Green Christianity : Five Ways to a Sustainable Future by Mark I. Wallace (2010, Paperback)
Privacy Copyright. It should be noted, however, that these figures include both public and private expenditures and that the final level of public spending is subject to political decisions. Of these a third are to be covered by the public sector. Financing must cover domestic as well as assistance to developing countries for mitigation and adaptation activities as a result of historical responsibilities, taking into account the need to further reinforce support for humanitarian aid, expected to require increased resources.
A key priority is the power sector and the energy system as such, including specific energy sector adaptation. At regional level, however, action is best coordinated by the EU, including to an important extent allocation of financial resources. Supranational action is required to ensure that all externalities are factored in. The EU budget can internally assist in reducing emissions and diminishing the adaptation burden for those member states that will suffer the most and bear the heaviest financial consequences of dealing with emissions. The former is in accordance with the subsidiarity principle, the latter with the principle of solidarity in the EU.
Externally, the EU can participate in financing the global obligations in the fight against climate change. Coordination of external actions is better served in a common approach. The EU budget seems thus to have potentially an important role to play in mitigation and adaptation actions.
How the EU budget could or should contribute has, however, been scantly discussed. The objective of the Task Force is to create political momentum to ensure that both the new European Parliament and new Commission understand the conditions required for the EU budget to reinforce EU climate mitigation objectives.
A briefing in May and a detailed report in autumn will be distributed widely to all relevant personalities and institutions.

I should have been warned by the title that the book was not about Christian Animism. I though it would, due to a recommendation of the author in a Jesus Radicals article on the subject.
This book was all over the place beginning with a vague introduction to christian animism, moving to his and others' interpretation of Jesus foot washing as an erotic experience, then moving into how we can challenge corporations through political action to making a more sustainable world and then finishing up I should have been warned by the title that the book was not about Christian Animism.
This book was all over the place beginning with a vague introduction to christian animism, moving to his and others' interpretation of Jesus foot washing as an erotic experience, then moving into how we can challenge corporations through political action to making a more sustainable world and then finishing up with a review of a documentary series.
The book suggested that our daily fight against the powers and simple things such as eating organic are the beginnings of solutions to living in harmony with the earth.
I do not believe the book goes far enough or addresses the problems with our civilization itself and its timetable for the destruction of the earth. Feb 25, Paul Rack rated it liked it.

I knew Mark, the author, in seminary. This is a good book that takes some unusual approaches, and does offer some positive alternatives. He builds on his "Christian paganism" thing, and it's actually more useful in terms of bringing it to local congregations than some of his earlier more incendiary stuff.
