“Forgive Us Earth, for We Have Sinned”?: Environmentalism and Religion

MLA 2008 in San Francisco
Panel sponsored by the Association for the Study of Literature and Environment

airplanes all over the world, for example, while chastising Americans for
their excessive carbon consumption. Many environmentalists preach one thing
and live another, as Janisse Ray recently contended in her _Orion_ article,
“Alter Call for True Believers.” She asks, what does it mean to preach to
(or be in) the “choir” of an environmental movement?
