Climate Crisis: Countdown to Year Zero, Part 2 of 7

Climate Crisis: Countdown to Year Zero, Part 2 of 7

On today’s program we’ll continue watching “Countdown to Year Zero,” by joining a student climate change strike in New York City. “If we don’t do this to make huge, huge, huge changes in the next five to ten years, our kids are all going to be climate refugees.” “For way too long, the politicians and the people in power have got away with not doing anything to fight the climate crisis.” “I would tell consumers to eat less or no meat, to move towards a plant-bused diet. We need the natural world, and we’re destroying it so fast. Unless we all get together now, it will be too late.” “So we are here to start the ball rolling for a Vegan World by 2026. Clearly the system that normalizes violence is going to end whether we like it or not. It’s going to end because the Earth is saying, “It’s no more.” Within eight years, climate change is going to be crazy. It is telling us, the Earth is telling us we have to change. And there is this one light that you see at the end of the tunnel. And you see that light, and that’s nonviolence.”

Climate Crisis: Countdown to Year Zero, Part 1 of 7

Welcome to Part 1 of our seven-part series on the Climate Crisis, featuring the illuminating documentary, “Countdown to Year Zero.” “We have been living in this system of normalized violence and we've been killing animals at such a fast pace. I mean, we kill more animals in four to 12 hours than all the humans that ever died in wars throughout human history put together.” “If you look at the World Wildlife Fund “living Planet Report,” it gives you the statistics that tell you very clearly, we have to change by 2026, otherwise, we are in big trouble. Death and extinction. This is a very serious issue. It's something that we have never ever faced before as humanity. We have been living in this system of normalized violence and we’ve been killing animals at such a fast pace.” “It takes eight pounds of grain to produce one pund of beef. We could stop destroying the forest. We could end world hunger, human world hunger, by giving that food directly to starving children. And we could save all these animals, and we could stop climate change if we just changed our diets.”

Fires Around the World and the Key to their Prevention, Part 3 of 3

Fires Around the World and the Key to their Prevention, Part 3 of 3

In today’s episode, we’ll examine the fires that blazed across Siberia, Russia, and Central Africa in 2019 as well as their cause and detrimental impact. In June and July 2019, temperatures in Siberia soared to 30 degrees Celsius. September 2019, it is estimated that more than 13 million hectares of Siberian forest had burned, an area lager than Greece. The wildfires in Siberia not only affect Russia but also the world. As the fires burn, they release black carbon, also known as soot, into the atmosphere. Some of this soot settles on the ice fields in Greenland and the Arctic, making the ice sheets darker and more able to absorb the Sun’s heat, thus accelerating the melting of the ice. This contributes to sea level rise, as well as further global warming. Many scientific studies reveal that raising livestock animals to climate change, adding as much as 51% to global warming. In its 2019 report, the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) stated that a shift away from meat consumption and adoption of a plant-based diet would be one of the most effective solutions to climate change. Supreme Master Ching Hai has also frequently spoken about the urgent need to adopt a vegan lifestyle to protect our Earth and has recommended a global ban on meat consumption.

Fires Around the World and the Key to their Prevention, Part 2 of 3

On today’s episode we’ll travel to California, USA and Europe. In 2017 and 2018, Californians suffered through the deadliest and most destructive wildfires in recorded history. The smoke they produced caused high levels of pollution and extremely unhealthy air for millions of citizens. Countless wild animals lost their forest homes. The recent California wildfires also had a disastrous side effect: mudslides. Many experts agree that rising global temperatures have the most dangerous impact on forests. And now, the magnificent forests, once a great asset to the EU countries, are seriously threatened, as the tinder-dry woodlands are extremely susceptible to fire. Not only are fires occurring more frequently in Europe, but they are also burning much larger areas than in the past. Many world-renowned climate change experts and scientists report that the primary cause of global warming is the raising of livestock animals, and so the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) recommends a widespread shift to a plant-based diet.

Fires Around the World and the Key to their Prevention, Part 1 of 3

In January 2020, hundreds of deadly wildfires raged throughout Australia. The most heartbreaking tragedy resulting from the fires in Australia was the loss of wildlife. One of the most heartbreaking cases of devastation occurred on Kangaroo Island. In addition to wildlife, livestock animals were also affected. Another result of the fires was air pollution. The damage in Australia affected the entire world. In addition to the smoke, the fires produced massive amounts of carbon emissions which, in turn, accelerate climate change. Research shows that the primary cause of climate change is the raising of livestock animals, which contributes more to global warming than all forms of transportation combined. Scientists report that the livestock animals raising industry causes as much as 51% of all global greenhouse gas emissions. Thus, many recommend that the most effective way to stop global warming is through widespread adoption of the vegan lifestyle. Supreme Master Ching Hai has frequently spoken about this as the quickest way to stop future climate-related disasters.

IPCC Special Report on Climate Change and Land – Heralding a Plant-Powered Global Food System, Part 2 of 2

IPCC Special Report on Climate Change and Land – Heralding a Plant-Powered Global Food System, Part 2 of 2

In view of such daunting challenges, the IPCC Climate Change and Land Special Report could represent our last hope for a sustainable future. It is also a solution that can be carried out on both the individual and the governing front. The first of these themes involves the preservation of our world’s forests, as well as other land-based carbon-absorbing “sinks,” such as wetlands and grasslands. The second theme focuses on putting an end to our grossly inefficient food system. The Report concludes that transitioning to a plant-strong diet can free up hundreds of millions of acres of land, which will help to curb deforestation and climate change. Upon hearing of the IPCC Special Report’s suggestion for the world to transition to a plant-strong diet, our beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai was overcome with joy. “We had good news: the United Nations and all the countries in the world signed the less meat protocol. So it’s becoming official now. I hope they just go forward. Become meatless. Not less meat, but meatless. No meat at all. That’s why I came to celebrate with you.”

IPCC Special Report on Climate Change and Land – Heralding a Plant-Powered Global Food System, Part 1 of 2

IPCC is the body established by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) in 1988 to provide policymakers with regular scientific assessments concerning climate change. It was the recipient of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize for its work on climate change. The newly released second Special Report on Climate Change and Land brings revitalized hope with its wise, clear policy suggestions. The key message of the report is that in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, better land use, halting deforestation, and cutting down on food waste must be the priorities. In a 2009 conference, the world-renowned humanitarian and spiritual Master, Supreme Master Ching Hai, shared with attendees, “So, to cool the planet most quickly, we have to stop consuming meat in order to stop the livestock-raising industry, and thus stop greenhouse gases, methane and other toxic gases from the animal industry.”
