Dalai Lama: Caring for Our Global Environment

Postby Seeker242 on Mon Dec 07, 2015 2:41 pm

His Holiness the Dalai Lama speaking on taking daily responsibility to change our environment in response to global warming in this short clip from an interview given to Sofia Stril-Rever in Oxford, UK on September 15, 2015.

How does one take daily responsibility to protect the environment?

Thanks for sharing the video.

Caring for our planet is crucial as its the only one we have.

Recycling is a big things and reducing the amount of waste is a big thing.

Carbon Emissions is another; I have recently bought a new car which is very economical and thus road tax is free.

Anything which is gentle to the environment and not toxic.

Saw five planets in early morning today before much morning twilight.

Counting from low at the east-southeastern horizon, Mercury, Venus, (Earth), Saturn, Mars, Jupiter, and the Moon.

Five planets in the sky, one underfoot, accounting for all the Terrestrial planets, and two gas giants. These are all the planets known (visible-to) the ancients, also (Uranus and Neptune requiring some optical aid).

Yes, let's treasure and protect the Great Earth. It's our best bet.
