The Tibetan Plateau: The World’s Third Pole (Video)

The Tibetan Plateau holds more freshwater than any other place outside the North and South Poles, and is the source of multiple major rivers that provide water to people in several countries.

In this short video, we hear part of the Dalai Lama‘s speech to the Canada Tibet Committee on the effects of climate change in the Tibetan Plateau.

With the glaciers in Tibet melting faster than anywhere else in the world, the impact on people living downstream will be huge.
