Himalayan leader makes climate plea in Cancun
Babaji, also known as His Holiness 1008 Shri Shri Soham Baba, is the chief-in-command for the Naga-Sadhus, a group of people who live in high-altitude caves in the Indian Himalayas. And he's upset about the glacier melt that stems from global warming, which is why he's come to the lower elevations of Cancun, Mexico to make his case.
Having lived in the Himalayas for 22 years, Babaji said he and his disciples have noticed the changes in their dwellings, and they're not impressed with how global leaders are responding. See a video of him making his case here.
While U.N. negotiators are focusing on the "framework of the mind," he said, they should start focusing on the "framework of the heart."
"Those papers will stay in a computer, a desk," Babaji said of any potential climate deal here in Cancun. "We need direct action. Let's go, let's do something, not too much talking."
