Clearing of forests that may have occurred in and around Lhasa hardly warrants stating that locals destroyed forests all over Tibet. That would be like saying that Parisiens cut the forests around Paris and therefore decimated all the forests of Europe. The rock paintings found in the vast northern tundra of Tibet contain depictions of large trees, which would indicate that those areas, once the center of the Tibetan Shangshung kingdom, were indeed much more conducive to forests. And the prevailing scientific theory is that those regions and adjoining central Asian areas underwent a drastic climate change around 5000 years ago. While scientific research is always welcome...arriving at unscientific conclusions with political overtones is not. Clear cutting of forests throughout many regions of Tibet with disastrous results have never occurred at the scale even approaching what the Chinese have committed in the history of Tibet. And all of the timber and their value have gone to China. There's a simple word for this sort of thing. Theft.
