n.— «Calling themselves “Creation Care” activists rather than “environmentalists” (a designation they associate with liberals, secularists and Democrats), they represent the conservative wing of a broader movement within American Christianity that scholars refer to as “ecotheology.” Unlike their generally more left-leaning colleagues, these folks are not tree-huggers: Many are skeptical about things such as the hole in the ozone layer and acid rain, and they are socially conservative on issues such as overpopulation. They nonetheless represent a sea change in the relationship between religion and environmental politics.» —“Is God an environmentalist?” by Mary Zeiss Stange USA Today Apr. 23, 2006.
