The Welcome Ceremony at the United Nations World Summit on Sustainable Development was a religion-resembling pageant venerating Mother Earth, according to Bron Taylor in Dark Green Religion: Nature Spirituality and the Planetary Future. Telling the story of a fall from an Eden-like paradise through greed and a callous indifference to nature, the performance called humanity to reverent care for Mother Earth. This video includes excerpts from Acts 1 & 2 of the Ceremony. Excerpts from Acts 3 & 4 are also available on youtube. Information about the book in which Taylor makes this analysis is available at http://www.brontaylor.com or the University of California Press website.
