Ecobuddhism: Climate Crisis Response

Please take a few moments to review "Tibet and China: Climate Crisis at the Earth's Third Pole," and then sign "A Buddhist Declaration On Climate Change." The Dalai Lama was first to sign, followed in short order by a number of other world leaders.

Under a tree the great sage Buddha was born.
Under a tree he overcame passion
And obtained enlightenment.
Under two trees he passed into Nirvana.
Indeed, the Buddha held trees in great esteem.
—Dalai Lama XIV

I couldn't imagine Dharma entangled in that gossip. Degree up, degree down.
I like trees, and birds, and meadows, and rats. I don't like fake prophets ranting out of greed of power.
Data. Just data.

Headed for China beginning of next month. Would you like me to bring anything back for you?
