    • Hi Susan – as you can see, this page is still “under construction” and does not contain links to most of the material posted on this site – in the next year, we will be converting this site into a searchable database of resources, at which point this “resources” page will be replaced. In the meantime, if you simply search the site for “Muslim” and then for “Islam” you will be able to see most of the posts related to Islam, including some with links to Muslim statements on the environment. I hope this helps. Best wishes, Greg Hitzhusen
