The dalai lama, the religious leader of the Tibetans, the klimaatactiviste Greta Thunberg congratulations on her efforts for the climate. This he did in a letter to the 16-year-old Swedish.
In his letter to Thunberg the dalai lama says that the ‘very encouraging is to see how you and other young people have been inspired to join you and to raise their voice”, sounds. ‘You make people aware of the scientific consensus and the urgency to intervene.’
Furthermore, it sounds that we humans are the only species with the power to change the earth as we know it, to destroy’. “But if we have the capacity to be the earth to destroy, then we also have the capacity to protect her.’
In a response to the Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter says Thunberg due to her busy travel schedule, the letter has not seen it yet. ‘But it is fantastic. I really appreciate it’, it sounds.
The dalai lama wrote the letter in Dharamsala in India. There, he lives in exile since fleeing the Chinese occupation of Tibet sixty years ago. In 1989 received Tenzin Gyatso, his monastic name, the Nobel Peace prize for his nonviolent struggle.
