Christopher G. Weeramantry, Tread Lightly on the Earth: Religion, the Environment, and the Human Future
Most religions tell us that nature is the beautiful and perfect handiwork of God worthy of respect and protection. These principles should be integrated into international law if we are to address the current crisis facing humanity. Christopher Gregory Weeramantry discusses these ideas comprehensively in his book. The work received support from the World Future Council (WFC), an independent think-tank founded in 2007 in Hamburg, Germany, whose members are active in governmental bodies, civil society, business, science and the arts. The WFC’s primary focus has been on the issue of climate change by promoting laws such as the renewable energy Feed-in Tariff.
