Some of the essays in this section are written by Vladimir Tomek and are strongly critical of the Christian churches' lack of reaction to environmental degradation. If you feel that these are not representative of your faith group's stance, we invite you to consider submitting an essay in rebuttal. We will consider publishing it in this section of our web site.
