Rick Gerhardt :: Should or can we stop burning oil?

  • “There’s certainly a place for us to continue to extract oil,” says Rick Gerhardt, Biologist and Christian Apologist. “But there also needs to be scrutiny on how we do that.” The issue of oil extraction and greenhouse gases is complex because of how dependent our society has become on oil. That doesn’t mean that we can’t adjust how we burn it or change how we use it though. As Christians we have a responsibility to scrutinize how we are treating the planet. “It’s a Christian approach to environmental stewardship that ultimately provides the logical grounding for it and the hope and the optimism that there’s actually worth in caring about these sorts of things.”
