The Question: Humans seem to be “hard wired” for religion. Michael Crichton, Ian Plimer, Joel Garreau, and Robert Nelson argue that environmentalism is taking the place of religion in today’s urban society. In this essay, draw on the the article by Chernus and explain the role religion fills in society. Then review the salient aspects of the argument made by Crichton, Plimer, Garreau, and Nelson. Do you agree or disagree with these authors? Given religion as a cultural system, has the environmental movement become the religion of choice for many in the U.S.?
I prefer that you have NO (zero, zilch, none) quotes in your essay. Paraphrase articles instead. Then cite article, book, video, or lecture to show where you got your information. You should have two or three citations in each paragraph in the body of your essay
