Divided views?

If we have divided views on God, do we also have divided views on nature?

World religions disagree on their perceptions of God, on how people should relate to God in its singular or various forms. Yet, at the core of every religion we have people and their faith; the same people who destroy the environment in order to sustain themselves and/or make gains in material possessions.

How would such world religions respond to a concept like environmentalism? Would they support their followers in order to win and keep their faith? Or would they agree, like some environmentalists do, that people are expendable in order to protect nature and celebrate the sacredness of Mother Earth?
