Dalai Lama as a high priest of the global warming cult

Dalai Lama has become one of  the  high  priests of  the  global warming cult

His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, has always been highly respected in the western world for his principled championing of the Tibetan cause. Sadly though, he has recently turned himself into a high priest of the global warming cult. 

Californians are, of course, always an excellent audience, when a celebrity wants to spread the cultist message:

More than 4,000 people flocked to UC San Diego’s campus Wednesday morning to hear His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama talk about global warming and its implications.  

The spiritual leader of Tibet, who is in San Diego on his first official visit, received a celebrity’s welcome. The audience, which ranged from college students in backwards caps to men in blazers, stood and cheered as the Dalai Lama took the stage inside the RIMAC auditorium. When the Dalai Lama put on a UCSD visor, the crowd went wild.
The audience was soon hushed, however, as the Dalai Lama began to talk about the perils of global warming, including rising sea levels and poor air quality. Using a simple but powerful metaphor, the Dalai Lama illustrated just how critical he feels the issues are.
“Look at birds: Even they respect their nests because they know their survival depends on it," he said. "This small blue planet is our only home. If we do not respect it, the entire planet and billions and billions of species will be affected. This is a question of life, a question of survival for the entire planet.”
As he spoke, audience members sat captivated, some wiping away tears or closing their eyes to better absorb what he was saying.

Perhaps somebody should tell His Holiness that at least he does not have to worry about the Himalayan glaciers, which are are growing, despite of the dark prophesies of all doomsday scaremongers!
