I'm glad to hear the suggestion that care for the earth is a spiritual issue. Now that we know what the problem is, what has caused it, and what can be done to begin to mend it, the failure to do what is necessary is a moral failure, a failure of compassion. And, as with all moral failures, ultimately, we will not be able to avoid reaping what we sow. What would the world's climate be like if everyone obeyed the simple command to love our neighbors as we love ourselves?
