What are the historical-cultural roots of our current environmental crisis? Do you agree with White’s assessment that it is our Judeo-Christian dominance model that has led to our environmental crisis? Why or why not? Read Genesis 1-3 very closely and compare White’s reading with that of Dobel. Which account do you think is closer to the truth? Explain your answer. Finally, if one does not accept a theistic version of creation, does either St. Francis’s “alternative Christian” view of “universal brotherhood” or the stewardship (or gardener) model make any sense?
