Can Mormons Go Green?

I had a great opportunity last Thursday to be part of a panel discussing Mormonism and the Environmental movement. The show was an hour long and aired on KRCL's daily program, RadioActive, from 6-7pm here in Salt Lake City. The other panelists were George Handley, Rachel Maybe Whipple, and Peter Ashcroft. I loved hearing from the other panelists and thought that the questions presented by the host, Troy Williams, were relevant and timely. I hope you'll take the time to listen.

Here is KRCL's page on the show along with the option to listen to the entire program.

Oh yeah Mormons will definitely go green. It's popular, close to nature which is close to God, and generally the "right" thing to do. It will probably take some time before any major changes though.

I think we can! We just can't get discouraged and have to keep spreading the green word.

So glad to have stumbled upon your blog. Happy to know there are other green Mormons out there. Just created a fb group for green Mormons. I hope I'll end up with more than 3 people will join.

Thank you for your thoughtful post. I am an active Latter-Day Saint, a professor of environmental science, and owner of an online natural products market. LDS doctrine unquestionably falls in line with most elements of the environmental movement. Unfortunately, LDS culture does not. This unfortunate confusion between culture and doctrine lends itself to challenge. That said, I have felt increasingly compelled to use what influence I have to see a meaningful marriage between LDS culture and environmentalism. I don't know how it will happen, or what exactly my role will be, but ultimately The Church will one day lead the sustainability movement.
