Tibetan Steppe

With environmental damage, climate change, and geopolitical pressure, I don't know how long the traditional way of life will remain intact on the Tibetan steppe. In my heart, I feel as if this is one of those things we'd better catch before it drifts away.

There is a fairly comprehensive, illustrated introduction by FAO available online, and you might want to give a look.

Why do the Tibetan nomads threaten China? I have always wondered about this.
