The last few months we have been exploring care for the earth in various First Day Schools.  Here are some links to resources:

Project Drawdown:  If you missed last Sunday's excellent presentation by QEW's Bev Ward on Project Drawdown and a hopeful approach to addressing climate change, you can view the powerpoint slides here and an inspiring video by Paul Hawken here.  Interesting factoid: educating girls makes a greater impact for reducing  climate change than many green technological approaches.  

Quaker Earthcare Witness (QEW) is another excellent resource

Enroads Climate Simulator provides some  interesting comparisons of the impact of various intervantions or combinations thereof. Here is a link to an explanation of how to use the simulaor.
