WikiLeaks Document Reveals Dalai Lama Thinks Climate Change Trumps Politics

In a new WikiLeaks document published by The Guardian, the Dalai Lama told U.S. diplomats last year that climate change should be the international community’s main focus, not politics.

“Political agenda should be sidelined for five to 10 years, and the international community should shift its focus to climate change on the Tibetan plateau,” said the spiritual leader.  “Melting glaciers, deforestation and increasingly polluted water from mining projects were problems that ‘cannot wait’, but the Tibetans could wait five to 10 years for a political solution.”

What’s more, the leaked cable alleges that the Dalai Lama said there were “three poles” in danger of melting – the north pole, the south pole, and “the glaciers at the pole of Tibet”.”

Although the Dalai Lama has previously spoken about the importance of focusing on environmental issues, this is the first time he has prioritized the issue or provided any sort of timescale.
