Dalai Lama Talks to Middlebury College Students

The Dalai Lama is taking an extremely long view when it comes to climate change.

Speaking Friday at Middlebury College, the Tibetan Buddhist leader and winner of the 1989 Nobel Peace Prize teased his audience by saying our crisis might crash into another crisis someday, but not to worry because it will take billions of years.
