Abstract

This presentation considers a dialogue between climate scientists and Christian theological discourse on the natural order in the context of the Anthropocene. The presentation discusses principles concerning the natural order articulated by contemporary theologians to guide human reflection and action on behalf of environmental stewardship. The presentation also presents scientific understanding of climate change and environmental degradation in the current context of the Anthropocene, a concept used by cultural anthropologists, climate scientists, public intellectuals, and community organizations to guide research, environmental public policy, and activism on behalf of environmental justice. Scientific and theological perspectives on climate matters will be discussed within an ethical, empirical, political, and justice framework.
