“Asia Warming”

Tibetans have lived off the grasslands of the Tibetan Plateau for millennia but their way of life is being threatened.
Asia Society has commissioned this exclusive video shot by Tibetan environmentalists throughout 2008,
showing how as the plateau warms up, this environmentally harmonious way of life is now under pressure. Rapidly melting glaciers and thawing permafrost have disturbed watersheds for rivers, lakes and the pastoral ecosystems and the consequences are continental and beyond. Running time 11 minutes.
