Summary: "No worldwide Church leader has been as internationally recognized for his dynamic leadership and initiatives in addressing the theological, ethical, and practical imperative in relation to the critical environmental issues of our time as His All Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew. Patriarch Bartholomew has long placed the environment at the head of his Church's agenda by developing ecological programs, chairing Pan-Orthodox gatherings and international symposia, and organizing environmental seminars for more than a decade. This book demonstrates just why His All Holiness has been dubbed the "Green Patriarch" by Al Gore and the media. This third and final volume of the spiritual leader's selected writings showcases his statements on environmental degradation, global warming, and climate change. It contains numerous speeches and interviews in various circumstances, including ecological symposia, academic seminars, and regional and international events, over the first twenty years of his ministry. The book also encompasses a selection of pastoral letters and exhortations--ecclesiastical, ecumenical, and academic--by His All Holiness for occasions such as Easter and Christmas, honorary doctorates, and academic awards."--Publisher's abstract.
