of extensive data has led eminent climatologists such as Dr. James
Hansen of the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration to state
that 2010 is set to become the hottest year in recorded history.
around the world are reflecting this same movement, with recent
prolonged droughts and excessive heat in China and India, along with
more recent record-setting highs in Ukraine and Belarus.
where peat and forest fires continue to burn, the head of the Russian
Meteorological Center stated that the country is enduring its longest
heat wave in a millennium.
Meanwhile, high temperatures in
Japan’s Tokyo Bay were found to have caused the death of up to 80% of
its baby-neck clams, as human lives were also lost in the USA’s Midwest
and South during early August, where the National Climatic Data Center
reported more than 200 record temperatures in the state of Mississippi
Experts warn that warmer waters resulting from these heat
waves may also increase hurricanes. Professor Michael Mann, a noted
climatologist at Pennsylvania State University in the USA, has explained
that such global warming-induced temperatures would become ever more
damaging over time, leading to widespread chaos as nations suffer from
the upheaval caused by their damaging effects.
Dr. Hansen, Professor Mann and all other scientists and officials
working to increase our understanding of the perilous tolls of climate
Let us quickly step in unison toward actions that restore
the safety of our shared planetary home. During an October 2009
videoconference in Indonesia, Supreme Master Ching Hai addressed the
increasing urgency of human-caused global warming, describing at the
same time the most effective measure to counteract its dangers.
Supreme Master Ching Hai:
The atmospheric temperatures are rising so steeply that we do not have
much time left to change. And that is just what has been predicted up to
date. http://www.upi.com/Science_News/2010/08/04/Heat-wave-kills-clams-crabs-in-Japan/UPI-65761280934293/http://abcnews.go.com/WN/deadly-heat-wave-sweeping-midwest-southeast-bringing-triple/story?id=11326471http://edition.cnn.com/2010/US/08/04/weather.heat/index.html#fbid=yEdbQYgywkT&wom=falsehttp://www.examiner.com/x-5181-Jackson-Weather-Examiner~y2010m8d9-Recent-heat-wave-breaks-or-ties-hundreds-of-temperature-records-from-morning-lows-to-afternoon-highshttp://theweek.com/article/index/205871/the-2010-heat-wave-5-excruciating-climate-records http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2010-08-09/heat-wave-to-grip-u-s-midwest-states-through-the-weekend-forecasters-say.htmlhttp://news.bbc.co.uk/weather/hi/uk_reviews/newsid_8879000/8879074.stm
The effects of climate change can be seen in so many
ways, with increased flooding, droughts, fires and even earthquakes
everywhere in the world. How do we stop these alarming changes ?
greenhouse gases released from the animals, from their waste,
agricultural runoff, and the activities related to these massive
operations have been identified as the primary, the number one cause of
We have to halt the meat consumption and the
livestock raising. Instead, we should choose to buy organic vegetable
and fruit products to save our lives and those of our families, save the
animals and the planet.
