An interview with green evangelical leader Richard Cizik
- Wednesday, 05 Oct 2005
The Bible calls on humans to watch over and care for earth's bounty. Richard Cizik, of the 30-million-strong National Association of Evangelicals, thinks it's time Christians start taking that directive seriously. He's pushing "creation care" and finding an increasingly receptive audience.
Cizik spoke to Grist recently from his hotel in New York City, where he was preparing to appear at a religious rally and wax evangelical on climate change -- a crisis, he says, of "biblical proportions."
