Is the Wikileaks saga a "crypto-environmental story"?

Interesting that the Dalai Lama said that environmental issues take precedence over political ones in Tibet -- I wonder how the Chinese gov't will react to that, if at all.

I have so much to say about the Wikileaks story. I agree with the Treehugger.com author that the implications of the reactions to the Wikileaks diplomatic "cables" infodump (did I just coin a word? -- somebody must have before me) are quite scary, and that transparency is a key issue.

Interesting to see the Wikileaks story linked to environmental issues. Will gov'ts try to cover up "scary" environmental stories using the precedence of Wikileaks because they are afraid how people might react (i.e. mass hysteria)?

LOTS to discuss here.
