a recent trip to the Antarctic Peninsula, Argentine geologist Dr.
Rodolfo del Valle witnessed continuous bubbling under certain areas of
the water’s surface. Measurements revealed that the bubbles were 99%
With ice shelves in Western Antarctica and the
Peninsula already noted to be melting due to climate change, the
additional release of methane could, due to its potency, accelerate
global warming beyond what scientists have described as an irreversible
tipping point, leading then to immense Earth changes.
Valle is now working to determine the potential impact of this
greenhouse gas as he stated, “We believe there is a huge amount of
destabilized methane deposits that may leak into the atmosphere and ramp
He went on to speak of the changes seen throughout
significant periods of geologic history, saying, “Of seven major mass
extinctions that erased 90% of the species at the time, five are
attributable to climate change, and one in particular – at the
Permo-Triassic boundary – could be directly attributable to mass methane
release in the Upper Paleozoic.”
Dr. del Valle, we appreciate
your work alerting us to this most recent evidence of continued climate
change. Let us join in a rapid response to preserve a habitable
ecosystem for all beings while we still have time.
Ching Hai has cautioned on previous occasions about the risks of methane
release due to global warming, while also highlighting an effective way
to stop it, as during a September 2008 interview on the US-based
Environmentally Sound Radio.
Supreme Master Ching Hai:
You look all that and you see already because the methane gas and
hydrogen sulfide are resulted from animal raising, and that produces a
lot of toxic gas into the air and it warms the atmosphere, and then the
atmosphere melts the ice and the ocean will be warm, and then more
methane and other toxins will be released from the bottom of the ocean
and permafrost and all that. And then it will be like a devil’s circle. I
hope we stop it quick.http://www.wired.com/wiredscience/2010/03/antarctic-methane-lakes/
If we do not do anything, then we will
goto the point of no return. But luckily, because due to many new
vegetarian people joining the vegetarian diet, now we have delayed the
point of no return.
