Environment Stuff and Mormonism

Stephen Carter has laid out several reasons (partially satirical) why Mormons don’t engage in nature writing or even in environmental discourse at large (as quoted in Dialogue (Summer 2011)).  I quote 2 reasons here:

I know a lot of Mormons who don’t think twice about environmental stuff because they believe Jesus is going to come with his very own Super Fund in just a little while from now.  So why worry?

There’s also the idea that, as gods, we’re going to be big real estate developers in the sky, with no constraints put on our creative abilities.  Which doesn’t lead one to think about resource management.
