Buddhist Climate Project

Read the article about Tibet and China: Climate Crisis at the Earth's Third Pole. It talks about the glaciers melting and the impending water crisis that will hit Asian countries to produce a food shortage. The impact is enormous and is being caused by coal fired plants. It is imperative that we stop adding CO2 to the atmosphere if we are to survive.
