Religious beliefs strongly influence attitudes to the environment

Религиозные убеждения сильно влияют на отношение к окружающей среде

New research shows that Christians are concerned about climate change and environmental issues in General, when they show religious materials, in which the man is positioned as the guardian of nature.

According to psychologists from the University of Illinois (USA) and the University of Warwick (UK), an important factor influencing how Christians relate to environmental issues, may be their view of humanity as the most important or dominant species on Earth. Religious materials, defending these positions, can affect people’s opinions and even enhance the care for the environment. The corresponding article was published in the journal Psychology of Religion and Spirituality.
