Dozens of faith leaders from across the globe gathered in New York City on Tuesday to discuss how to engage their constituents in the climate change debate.  All acknowledged that religious groups are in a powerful, influential position to push forward climate action in their communities.

"Our political leaders are failing," said Ajarn Sulak Sivarksa, one of the founders of the International Network of Engaged Buddhists.  "What sane people would see all of these signs, but not act? We must demonstrate how the world must be."
