Muslims and climate change: How Islam, Muslim organizations, and religious leaders influence climate change perceptions and mitigation activities
Jens Koehrsen, University of Basel. WIREs Climate Change

What role does religion play in climate change rhetoric? A growing body of literature has begun to link religiosity to climate change attitudes, but most of this research has focused on Christianity in the Global North. Muslims represent the second largest faith group worldwide, and a significant proportion of the Muslim population lives in countries or areas that are particularly vulnerable to climate change. Given the diverse experiences and backgrounds of Muslims across the world, it is not surprising to find that there is no universal perspective on climate change among Muslims. It is also the case, however, that the social networks that exist among religious organizations provide great opportunities to continue disseminate information and mobilize advocacy efforts around climate change.
