The historic Christian attitude towards the environment has made heavy use of the concept of "dominion", stemming from Gen. 1:28. Some Christians thus describe creation in terms which suggest that it exists for humans to use as they see fit. There is another current of thought, which has grown in influence in recent years, which re-casts the relationship between humanity and the rest of creation in different terms and provides a different understanding of dominion.
