Dalai Lama: Climate Change will kill India’s water source.

The Tibetan Glaciers serve millions of Indians—and Chinese—and just about everyone in that there part of the world (approx 1/3 of the world’s population). And they’re melting, the Dalai Lama reminded Indians.

“…millions of Indians use water coming from the Himalayan glacier, so you have certain right to show your concern about ecology of that plateau…India, a free country, I think should express more serious concern, that’s I think important. This is nothing to do with politics, just everybody’s interest, including Chinese people also,” he said.

    It does have to do with politics. The false report about the Himalayan glaciers melting at an alarming pace turned out to be false. This is in the literature now. It is worth reading about to understand more about how politics has driven the global warming aka climate change scare. Nasty business designed to enrich a few.

    Taming Anger… Odd…. since I just watched a documentary on it, with photographic and eye witness evidence of the Glacier's rapid retreat up the mountain. If I can find the name of it again, I'll be glad to post it (since it's off of Netflix and can be streamed for free). I'm not sure how false it can been when Forrest that once stood on the glacier no longer exist, and the marker which once stood at the bottom of the glacier only a few short years ago now stands on bare rock. It's melting. Fast. And even if the rate hasn't increased, frankly, if it keeps going at the rate it is, It only has a generation or two left.

    If you have real science, David, I would definitely listen. The problem with global warming was that it was based on false science—which was exposed. When folks like Gore counterfeit science in order to promote a scam from which they stand to profit in the tens of billions, credibility is lost.

    When the folks who falsified records and cooked the peer review process were not removed from the science community, the community as a whole lost its credibility. When Gore continues to have a platform in the climate change community something is seriously wrong as he has been proven to have put out falsehoods.

    When it comes to good science, I am probably leaps and bounds ahead of you, David. But I refuse to accept the politically driven hogwash of the climate change movement, which was spawned with profits and politics in mind.

    Do find the name of it and then check the stories that resulted when it was found the report was based on falsehoods genned up by a photographer environmentalist with an agenda. There was much embarrassment for the Indian gentleman who promoted the "findings" in the climate change community.

    Al Gore also did a film that many people believed but which was filled with ridiculous claims and false science. Do the research and check the facts rather than believe the propaganda being put out by those with two agendas: a) profits from carbon exchanges, b) global political control through U.N. bodies enforcing treaties.

    Take a close look at the "environmental" ban on drilling in the gulf. And then look at the loan we gave to Brazil for deep water drilling at much greater depths. All to profit George Soros and his stake in Petrobras. Look at the fact that Soros' Russian oligarch friends are setting up offshore drilling near Cuba. Please wake up and really pay attention to what it going on.

    Please post the links, or cite the sources to your good science that is "leaps and bounds" ahead of the people actually monitoring ice shelf loss and global warming, because I would love to see that global warming isn't happening either. It would give me less cause to worry.
