That All May Flourish

Christopher Patrick Miller

Dianna Bell

Oxford University Press

This chapter brings together Hindu and Muslim thought on climate change in specific local contexts in India and Mali. The dialogue uncovers deep themes of economic power, environmental epistemology, and power politics that emerge from the intersection of two essays. The power to flourish depends on politics as much as religion, it seems. We will see the roles played by government officials, bureaucrats, and spiritual leaders as both India and Mali negotiate the relationship between citizens and the natural environment. Government and bio-spiritual voices, potentially at odds, would do better to work together. The chapter ends with provocative and practical suggestions toward localizing environmental protection that might be achieved via the collaboration of these two voices.

Keywords:   Hindu-Muslim dialogue, politics and religion, climate change, power, Christopher Miller, Dianna Bell
