Buddhism and Climate Change

If you're interested in the intersection between Buddhism and climate change, here are a few good sites and articles.

At Spirit Rock Meditation Center, where I work part time as a Retreat Manager, we have a Green Group that meets somewhat irregularly. Our original focus was on helping reduce Spirit Rock's ecological footprint. This group was started after I attended a Climate Action Workshop at the Ecology Center in Berkeley. I highly recommend this workshop for anyone who wants to reduce their footprint, and learn more about climate change and ways to be active.
