Faith engages ecology, Rio+20

Pope Benedict has not been shy in regards to issues of the environment. He has spoken frequently about everyone's right to food, right to water and responsible sharing. He has spoken about the real meaning of progress and development and what that means for our planet of limited resources. He has discussed climate change, the connection between science and nature, and how the path of cultivating peace is directly linked to protecting creation.  In preparation for the UN Conference Rio+20, some faith analysis is important reading.  Sell also the Faith, Econ omy and Ecology Transitions webpage.
