recent research doubling forecasts due to new information about
accelerated ice melt in Antarctica and other regions, a 1.4-meter sea
level rise is now being anticipated in coastal areas and islands before
the next century.
Countries such as Âu Lạc (Vietnam) are thus
calling attention to the issue of food security ahead of the upcoming
international negotiations in Copenhagen. Deputy Director of the
Aulacese (Vietnamese) Meteorology, Hydrology and Climate Change
Department, Mr. Nguyễn Khắc Hiếu has stated that the anticipated
flooding would inundate 31,000 square kilometers of the Mekong Delta –
an area about the size of Belgium.
As the world’s second
largest rice exporter, the effect to both Âu Lạc and many other
countries would be profound. Deputy Director Nguyễn is thus asking that
adaptation issues be addressed at the Copenhagen climate summit.
appreciation, Deputy Director Nguyễn and Âu Lạc for calling attention
to this vital topic at such a crucial juncture for humanity. May the
decisions of our world leaders bring unified steps to restore the
balance of our ecosphere. During an August 2009 climate change
conference in Thailand, Supreme Master Ching Hai
highlighted the tolls of the current global crisis, while emphasizing
the critical need for appropriate action to reverse the situation.
Supreme Master Ching Hai :
In Âu Lạc (Vietnam), you probably know of global warming related
problems such as the untimely flooding and encroachment of the sea of
the Mekong Delta region –http://www.google.com/hostednews/afp/article/ALeqM5iUQUHqrFNSnyGROkjhbTqf2dOWwQ http://www.gather.com/viewArticle.action?articleId=281474977925407&grpId=3659174697244816&nav=Groupspacehttp://www.rfi.fr/actuvi/articles/120/article_5911.asp
both of which have caused havoc and further threat to the region’s vital rice and fruit crops.
is due to a combination of sea levels rising, along with the effect of
melting glaciers, which are now causing excessive floods but eventually
will cause drought and vastly diminished water supplies as well.
So we must work quickly to avoid such unwanted outcomes.
the most effective way is the organic vegan diet, organic vegetable
farming. This is also the fastest way to reverse the increased warming
climate to prevent further damage and disaster. If everyone does this –
be veg – the Earth will begin to cool and we will have more time to
implement the measures to eliminate all the carbon emissions. So
please, be veg,and tell everyone else of these benefits.
