Moral Ground: Ethical Action for a Planet in Peril

READ AND DOWNLOAD

Moral Ground brings together the testimony of over 80 visionaries ? theologians and religious

leaders, scientists, elected officials, business leaders, naturists, activists, and writers ? to present

a diverse and compelling call to honor our individual and collective moral responsibilities to our

planet. In the face of environmental degradation and global climate change, scientific knowledge

alone does not tell us what we ought to do. The missing premise of the argument and muchneeded

centerpiece in the debate to date has been the need for ethical values, moral guidance,

and principled reasons for doing the right thing for our planet, its animals, its plants, and its people.

This book encourages a newly discovered, or rediscovered, commitment to consensus about our

ethical obligation to the future and why it’s wrong to wreck the world.Contributors include: Fred W.
