The story that Stephenie Hendricks has uncovered affects the entire globe. She charts important connections between Wise Use—a rabidly anti-environmental philosophy—and dominion theologists—far-right Christian ideologues who believe that there is no reason to protect the environment given the imminence of the Second Coming of Christ. But this collaboration also reaches all the way to the Bush administration, whose environmental policies are deeply influenced by dominionist thinking. An in-depth look at the radical remaking of American environmental policy already underway—in terrifying secret.
