On September 8, 2005 the Hartford Courant reported, "Leaders from a range of denominations and faiths will gather for the first time Friday at Hartford Seminary to discuss the responsibility of faith communities to care for the environment. Religious communities have become more inclined to embrace environmental stewardship as a matter of faith. But Friday's summit comes at a time when Hurricane Katrina, beyond its scale as a humanitarian disaster, is fueling debate over whether global warming has contributed to the rapid succession of fierce hurricanes in the Atlantic... Summit participants will represent a range of faiths and area religious groups, including Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Baha'i and Jain."
