The clash between religion and the environment
What do palm fronds, statues of Ganesh, and eagle feathers all have in common? They are religious objects that pose a challenge for the environment. Jay Wexler is a professor at the Boston University School of Law. He specializes in environmental law and church/state issues. His latest book is When God Isn't Green: A World-Wide Journey to Places Where Religious Practice and Environmentalism Collide. With humor and a hope for raising consciousness and finding balance, he makes the case for continuing the conversation between the needs of religious and environmental communities.
