The Environment:

Tending to Eden – After reading this very readable book with its powerful storytelling and its accessible survey of best practices in creation care, for the rest of your life you will see a bigger picture than you’ve ever seen before when it comes to matters of human poverty, health, prosperity, and security. –author, speaker, and pastor Brian McLaren.  This is a highly personal approach to educating and inspiring today’s evangelical church to think Biblically, locally, and internationally about environmental stewardship. Using conversational narrative, Scott weaves together hard data and personal experience to highlight the issues and to present solutions. Easy to read and practical to implement, Tending to Eden offers a fresh vision of how Christians in this new century can love our neighbors, especially ‘the least of these,’ by caring for God’s creation. –Rev. Jim Ball, PhD, senior director, Climate Campaign, Evangelical Environmental Network.

Climate Cover-Up: The Crusade to Deny Global Warming  –  Canadian environmental activists Hoggan and Littlemore pull no punches in this spirited indictment of global warming deniers. Their well-sourced research spotlights premeditated prevarications about the threat of greenhouse gas emissions by the oil and coal industry, in league with junk scientists, compliant conservative politicians and unsavory public relations practitioners. Persistent obfuscation of science by these anti-environment players is further abetted, say the authors, by a manipulated media that, in a misguided effort toward journalistic balance, pairs scientific certainty about an encroaching climate crisis with quotations from people who make a living denying it. Readers predisposed to believe the worst about the oil, coal and electric industries will find their fears buttressed by the book’s detailed overview of an orchestrated climate coverup by Astroturf (fake grassroots) organizations, right-wing think tank echo chambers, the tens of millions of industry dollars poured into primarily Republican campaign coffers and the PR profession’s Orwellian use of language. But global warming skeptics might also be swayed by the detailed dissection of an ongoing campaign to convince the public that climate change is still unproven.

“Our Father’s World, Mobilizing the Church to Care for Creation”– Our Father’s World is a passionate and practical assessment of the current environmental crisis from one of the leaders of the evangelical creation care movement. This book offers a biblical framework for creation care as well as a practical guide for students, churches, mission agencies and ordinary Christians. It is valuable for both believers and skeptics, especially those who are confused about what the Bible has to say about creation care and the responsibility of Christians. Our Father’s World is also a measured and thoughtful response to skeptics such as E. O. Wilson who have pleaded with Christian leaders to take up the challenge of caring for the environment.

“A Climate for Change: Global Warming Facts for Faith-Based Decisions.” – “In the midst of one of the most heated debates of my lifetime, there are some voices that offer calm and respectful insight to people of faith. Balancing passion with civility, Hayhoe and Farley speak with such a voice. No matter what you believe about climate change’s causes or effects, A CLIMATE FOR CHANGE will challenge you to think critically about both the issue and your responsibility to respond.” (Jonathan Merritt, faith and culture writer, national spokesperson, Southern Baptist Environment and Climate Initiative 2009)”As Christians committed to the truth in both science and faith, Katharine Hayhoe and Andrew Farley present a compelling case for why addressing climate change is a part of what it means to be a Christian today.” (Larry J. Schweiger, president and CEO of the National Wildlife Federation and author of Last Chance 2008)”This engaging book has everything you need to understand the climate change debate: facts, answers, stories, and of course Scripture. It will inform the merely curious or answer the skeptic or equip the person who wants to fix the problem. I loved it!” (Dr. Joel C. Hunter, senior pastor, Northland: A Church Distributed, Orlando, Florida 2009) .   “Climate scientists are best able to tell us if, how, and why Earth’s climate is changing. Ethicists and religious scholars and leaders are best able to tell us how we should respond to the knowledge that science provides. Authored by a climate scientist and a religious leader, this book provides a unique perspective on Christian responses to the findings of climate science. Anyone who is open to messages from both science and Christian Scriptures will be struck by the insight and synthesis of this remarkable author team. With clarity unusual in science reports and impeccable logic, A CLIMATE FOR CHANGE is a compelling call to action.” (James J. McCarthy, Agassiz Professor of Oceanography, Harvard University, and president of the American Association for the Advancement of Science).

    [b]Welcome! [/b]

    This site has been created to help anyone interested in living a long fulfilling life. Cancer is one of the most common health risks — according to the reports there have been over 1,5 million new cancer cases in the USA alone in 2011. Both men and women are equally exposed to danger.
    Main causes of cancer are carcinogens, and there are many natural carcinogens. Carcinogens exist in multitude of forms: aflatoxin grows in fungus emerging on grains, nuts and peanut butter, dioxine, asbestos and others.
