The most important topic on Earth is how we are going to save it.  If we don’t, nothing else matters.   These sites are a handful of the many that provide basic information, and a few ways to act on our concerns.

Please let me know if you think any of these groups engage in “greenwashing,” i.e. the cooptation of environmentalist groups by corporations to enhance their public image.

I will add more to this list later, so please check back, or post a reply if you are concerned about this issue.
