New feature article - "Climate Change: towards a Buddhist Response"

FWBO News is pleased to present another article in its occasional series of Feature Articles. ‘Climate Change: towards a Buddhist Response’ is by Akasati, a long-standing member of the Buddhafield team. Her long and thoughtful piece includes – among other things – the following sections

• climate change: causes, evidence and impacts
• some objections & arguments
• offsetting?
• sustainability: ‘the third revolution’
• the great turning
• climate change in the context of traditional buddhist teachings (a detailed look at ethics, the notion of ‘hidden dukkha’, the teaching of ‘no separate self’, emptiness and compassion, and finally, revisiting the simple life)
• levels of action
• further reading
• other resources

Highly recommended!
