to the assessment of both US and European researchers, the frigidly
cold weather and massive storm systems that occurred this past winter
throughout the US and Europe were all part of a warming climate.
Boettcher, Director of the German Institute for Weather and Climate
Communication, stated, “Right now, temperatures in Greenland are 15
degrees Celsius above the season's long-term average.”
on to say that even with the cold temperatures in Central and Northern
Europe, German weather statistics reveal an average temperature that is
at least one degree Celsius higher than 100 years ago.
a 2009 US Climate Impacts Report stated that global warming has caused
large cold weather systems to move northward, with mid-latitude storms
decreasing in frequency but rising in intensity as the hotter air
retains more moisture, resulting in the release of enormous amounts of
Satellite data in fact showed that the two large
winter storms that recently impacted the US occurred during the warmest
winter on record for the region. Director Boettcher and other European
and US scientists, we are grateful for your insights that remind us of
the perilous state of our ecosphere.
Let us all do our utmost to restore planetary stability by acting now in united and Earth-supporting ways.
during a January 2009 videoconference in Mongolia, Supreme Master Ching
Hai has often emphasized the real urgency of global warming and our
actions that can quickly counter it.
Supreme Master Ching Hai: We
are already facing so many untold natural disasters on a daily basis
such as earthquakes, severe storms never seen before, volcanoes, ice
melting and many island nations that have sunk under the water already
and many are sinking. http://www.alertnet.org/thenews/newsdesk/ips/413529ce1db520b7851406f69fd669fd.htm http://www.whitefieldconsulting.com/wordpress/?p=2463 http://www.time.com/time/health/article/0,8599,1962294,00.html http://www.nytimes.com/2010/02/11/science/earth/11climate.html http://www.globalchange.gov/publications/reports/scientific-assessments/us-impacts/full-report/about-this-report
And the climate has become very, very
strange, like it became warm where it should be cold and it became cold
where it should be hot. And this can only be alleviated through a return
to the ancient ways of our wiser elders, one that exists in harmony
with nature and respect of other beings, a true brotherhood of love with
We can still do that; it’s not too late.
Supreme Master Ching Hai: We should remind everyone to be veg, to invoke the mercy of the Buddhas, and we will be better protected.
