WASHINGTON — The Dalai Lama sees a practical side to receiving America’s highest civilian award next week — it’s an opportunity to once again tell Chinese leaders his ideas for the future of Tibet, his envoy in talks with China said Friday.

But prestigious awards, such as the Congressional Gold Medal, and the friendship and respect of world leaders and Hollywood stars have yet to warm Beijing to the exiled Dalai Lama. The Chinese government renewed its attacks on him this week, declaring through the government-run Xinhua News Agency that the Dalai Lama sees the Chinese people as enemies and wants to break up the Chinese nation.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Liu Jianchao said his government opposed the award and made a formal objection to the United States.

China’s charges against the Dalai Lama are false, said Lodi Gyari, the Dalai Lama’s Washington-based envoy, who has represented him in talks in Beijing.

The medal is important because it gives Tibetans hope and encouragement, said Gyari, whose parents followed the Dalai Lama from Tibet to India after an uprising in 1959.

“The Tibetan people are peaceful because they believe their leader is out there speaking for them and is heard,” he said.

The Dalai Lama will meet with President Bush on Tuesday. Bush also will attend the award ceremony in the Capitol Rotunda on Wednesday, when conch shell horns will sound and some 30 of the religion’s leading teachers from around the world will gather to honor the Dalai Lama.

New Eyewitness To WTC Basement Level Explosions

Saltalamacia describes “grenade” like bombs, backs up William Rodriguez’ story, numerous others that were ignored by 9/11 Commission

Paul Joseph Watson | Prison Planet | Friday, October 12, 2007

A new eyewitness who was working in the WTC on 9/11 has gone on record to describe how he heard multiple grenade-like explosions around the basement levels of the north tower, backing up William Rodriguez’ story, the WTC janitor who reported explosions before the first plane hit the tower.

Anthony Saltalamacia was a morning supervisor who managed over a hundred workers in the twin towers. He worked closely with WTC janitor William Rodriguez, eyewitness to sub-level explosions that occurred before the impact of the first plane in the north tower and representative for many 9/11 victim’s families.

Saltalamacchia was in sub-basement B1 of the North Tower, approximately 1,100 feet below the airplane’s impact point at floors 93 to 98.

In the the following You Tube video, Saltalamacia discusses what he witnessed on 9/11. The account backs up the events previously described by William Rodriguez.

Stressed Kids Fret About the World

A study of 7-to-11-year-old Brits found that the climate crisis and terrorism have added to the usual pressures of school and friendships to drive kids batty. Luckily, schools that engaged world-weary children with lessons and activities related to global catastrophe managed to alleviate some of the tension.

Guardian:

Pupils feared the world outside their school gate – those in urban areas were particularly worried about violent crime although parents’ biggest fear for their children was traffic accidents.

Researchers found that pupils in schools which tackled the problems they worried about, such as those with eco-clubs and recycling schemes to teach children about environmental problems, were happier.

“Where schools had started engaging children with global and local realities as aspects of their education they were noticeably more upbeat. In several schools children were involved in environmental projects and the sense that ‘we can do something about it’ seemed to make all the difference,” they write.

Nobel prize recognises climate crisis

by Geezer Power …9:28 am

By Richard Black Environment correspondent, BBC News website

Mr Gore has taken the message of climate change to the public. In awarding the Nobel Peace Prize to Al Gore and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the committee has signalled its view that climate change is now one of global society’s defining security issues.

Indian’s surprise at Nobel award

Indian scientist Rajendra Pachauri has spoken of his surprise at the UN panel he heads being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for its work on global warming.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and campaigner Al Gore were named as joint winners on Friday.

“I can’t believe it. I’m overwhelmed,” Dr Pachauri, 67, told well-wishers in the Indian capital, Delhi.

“The committee is trying to tell the world we need to do something about climate change urgently.”

Praise for Gore

Dr Pachauri said he was “just a symbol” and credit was due to his organisation and its efforts.

“It is really the scientific community that contributes to the work of the IPCC and the governments who support the work of the IPCC who are really the winners of this award.”

The message should go out to everyone – developed and developing countries – we are all in this together

He said he felt privileged to share the prize with “someone as distinguished” as the former US vice president.

“Al Gore certainly deserves it. The amount of effort he has put into creating awareness about climate change has had a major impact.”

The two men spoke on the phone after the announcement.

“This is Pachy… I am certainly looking forward to working with you. I’ll be your follower and you’ll be my leader,” Dr Pachauri said.

“Convey my congratulations to the IPCC,” replied Mr Gore.
