research contradicting Lynn White

ch.2, ec-p.11 – introductory paragraph to summary of religion and environmental concern research whose major findings include an overall positive role of religion with environmentalism, or studies showing a generally mixed association…

“Positive association and mixed influence. TABLE 2.A identifies studies where analysts either find measures of religiosity corresponding positively overall with examples of environmental concern or see mixed evidence of religion’s role in environmentalism. This evidence appears despite Lynn White’s decades-old charge that western Christianity creates contemporary ecological crises in modern societies (White 1967).”
