I believe that this article is considered one of the classic texts in combined study of environment/religion.
The Historic Root of Our Ecological Crisis by Lynn White Jr.
"What we do about ecology depends on our ideas of the man-nature relationship. More science and more technology are not going to get us out of the present ecologic crisis until we find a new religion, or rethink our old one."
The article is quoted in the Moffat Lecture at BYUH.
