The internet has made accessible vast quantities of faith-based environmental inspiration, yet at times the volume can be overwhelming.  We’ve pinpointed a few excellent faith-based eco-movies, YouTube clips, web sites and faith-based environmental organizations to enhance your environmental education.

Web-based eco-films & YouTube clips

  1. Bishop Eugene Sutton’s YouTube clip on the significance of the environmental sustainability in fulfilling our commandment of loving one another.
  2. PBS’ Moyers on America: Is God Green? Insightful analysis of the internal environmental debate among conservative evangelical Christians.
  3. On Faith & Fracking: An interfaith 10-minute presentation on the connection between our faith and the spiritual role of water and the potential harm caused by fracking. Hydraulic fracturing, a.k.a fracking, is a controversial new drilling method used to harvest natural gas. This video complements the Gasland 1 & 2 movies.
