World Wildlife Fund (WWF) has published a comprehensive report intended
to provide leaders at the upcoming climate change meeting in Denmark
with solid research in support of urgent action.
Among its many
findings were that the rapid Arctic melt and release of poisonous
methane from melting permafrost could lead to dangerously irreversible
The report also stated that sea level rise would
be twice that cited in the most recent UN Intergovernmental Panel on
Climate Change figures, due to the rapid melting of Greenland and the
Dr. Martin Sommerkorn, senior climate change advisor for
WWF’s Arctic program said, "This report shows that it is urgently
necessary to rein in greenhouse gas emissions while we still can. …
put, if we do not keep the Arctic cold enough, people across the world
will suffer the effects.” Our sincere appreciation Dr. Sommerkorn, World
Wildlife Fund and all participating researchers for this in-depth
evaluation of human-caused global warming.
We pray that leaders
across the globe unite in commitment to sustainable lifestyles that
protect our planet.
Supreme Master Ching Hai has on many occasions
encouraged humanity’s quick response to the urgent facts being presented
by the world’s scientists, as in this July 2008 videoconference in
Master Ching Hai: I think we’d better heed the warning of the
scientists because otherwise it’s not just the ice melt, maybe we will
melt also. Referencehttp://www.upi.com/Energy_Resources/2009/09/02/WWF-Arctic-melting-has-global-effects/UPI-41181251909643/
I hope not! And we are working frantically toward saving
the planet. So if we be vegetarian, our good karma of saving lives will
in turn reward us with our lives saved. That’s all I can say.
