Noah and the Ethics of Environmentalism

By Eric I.B. Beller

Eugene Borowitz, November 13, 1981

The author aims to prove that environmentalism and religion are not mutually exclusive. He draws on the biblical story of Noah's Ark to advocate a form of conservationism that is rooted in theology. Just as Noah was obligated to preserve all life as if it were his own due to the knowledge of impending doom, the author asks his readers to do the same.
