Former Florida Governor and likely presidential candidate Jeb Bush delivered a commencement speech at Liberty University over the weekend, where he detailed concern for the environment as one of the key components of his faith.


"America's environmental debates, likewise, can be too coldly economical, too sterile of life," Bush said. "Christians see in nature and all God's creatures designs grander than any of man's own devising, the endless glorious work of the Lord of Life. Men and women of your generation are striving to be protectors of Creation, instead of just users. Good shepherds, instead of just hirelings. And that moral vision can make all the difference."


Last month on a campaign stop in New Hampshire, Bush said he is "concerned" about climate change.
