a religious social base?

ch.2, ec-p.7 – life beyond this writing kept me busy yesterday, so two posts today to keep the pace. here’s a transition paragraph moving from discussing sociological interest in the general social bases of environmentalism to work focusing the relationship of religion with environmental concern in the next section of the chapter…

“Although most contour lines of environmental concern remained relatively well mapped, some received less attention than others. One area of primary research neglect included exploring the association of religion with expressions of environmental concern. Hints of its role appeared in early investigations (REFS), and some briefly mentioned it (Kanagy, Humphrey and Firebaugh 1994). Recently, analyst’s attention has turned more toward better understanding aspects of environmentalism’s religious social base, especially with increasing faith-based activism among believers on environmental issues and climate change (REFS).”
