WASHINGTON : A recent series of record-breaking snowfalls in Washington, DC, has sparked debate among global warming pundits – both its supporters and detractors – as to the extent of humanity’s impact on the environment.

While the pundits debate, eco-conscious DC-area Muslims are promoting a message of environmental stewardship to both Muslims and non-Muslims in their community.
