As we humans drive our fragile planet toward ecocide, what force can stop us, change our behavior? Can religion, espousing an environmental ethic, change how we act? The Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, the first major Christian leader to make the environment a moral imperative, is a man on a spiritual mission to save our earth, save God's Creation.
