Religion, Science, and the Environment

Here is the website of the "Religion, Science, and the Environment" movement I mentioned in section today. Dr. Jane Lubchenco of Oregon State University among other scientists were invited to participate in this international symposium, which recently met in Greenland to discuss the role of religion and science in the face of climate change.

As a side-note, Jane founded the Aldo Leopold Leadership Program that teaches environmental scientists to be effective communicators of scientific information to the public, policy makers, the media and the private sector--definitely an important skill for science to influence conservation measures.
