Water: A Precious Resource for Life on Earth, Part 1 of 2

"Every year, on the 22nd of March, the world comes together to help create water awareness. Everyone, from our world leaders to children in primary schools, join the fight against the abuse, pollution, and over exploitation of our precious water resources." Fresh water is the resource that all of us must share to meet many of our daily needs. We need fresh water for drinking, cooking, personal hyg

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.”

Where Does Supreme Master Ching Hai Live? Part 1 of 6

Over several decades, while tirelessly travelling around the world to spread the Truth and elevate the planet, Supreme Master Ching Hai has stayed in simple abodes known only to a handful of people. You may be as curious as we were to know what these homes are like. With Master's gracious permission, we are privileged to present some glimpses into Her private living quarters in various countries, where She resided during different periods. Along the way, we'll also share related touching stories, which may give us insights into Master's caring and harmonious way of life. In the 1980s, after returning from Her quest to find the Truth in India, Supreme Master Ching Hai officially began Her mission in Taiwan, also known as Formosa. Not having a place to stay at first, Supreme Master Ching Hai and Her renunciates lived in tents with few belongings, camped by riversides, and moved from place to place….

Zoonotic Diseases: Nature’s Self-Defense, Part 1 of 2

“Through COVID-19 the planet has delivered its strongest warning yet that we must change our ways. Human activity has altered virtually every part of the land. As we displace the natural world, we’re destroying vital ecosystems and the biodiversity that thrives on them. We are causing climate change, harming our ability to feed ourselves, opening the door to new illnesses such as COVID-19. It’s time to listen to the planet’s warnings.” “To care for humanity, we MUST care for nature. We need our entire global community to change course. Let’s rethink what we buy and use. Adopt sustainable habits, farming, and business models. Safeguard remaining wild spaces and wildlife. And commit to a green and resilient future. As we work to build back better, let’s put nature where it belongs -- at the heart of our decision making.” “Because these infectious diseases or infectious agents are stored deep inside our wilderness. It is nature’s defense weaponry. She would release it as new pathogens that we call when we cross our limits. So, when we raise the threshold of the biodiversity loss, these pathogens – these new pathogens are emergent pathogens – are going to be released. So, it all depends on our actions. A large number of studies have shown that pathogens are in a state of undiluted equilibrium in the complex stable and undisturbed ecosystem. So, if the ecosystem remains in that state, which is undisturbed, stable, and complex, then nothing is going to happen. We are perfectly safe.” “So, in one sense COVID-19 or any other emerging zoonotic diseases is nothing but nature’s retribution. Mind that, just like the case of hornets and snakes, it’s not a deliberate murdering, you see? These zoonotic diseases are nothing but nature’s own self-defense strategy; not (an) offense, but it’s (a) defense.”

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.”

Where Does Supreme Master Ching Hai Live? Part 2 of 6

Today, we’ll visit more of Her early homes in Taiwan, also known as Formosa. After being invited to give lectures throughout Taiwan (Formosa), Supreme Master Ching Hai sometimes traveled to Pingtung, staying in Hao Cha Village. There, Master stayed in a tent and cave, imparting to initiates Her extensive knowledge of living in the wilderness. At the Laiyi Center, Supreme Master Ching Hai lived in a small cabin that was expanded and had a terrace added after Master left. The size of the whole house is only 7.4 by 9.6 meters. In Miaoli, perhaps the living quarters that Supreme Master Ching Hai likes the most is Her cave, two by two-two meters by two meters. Supreme Master Ching Hai often reminds us about the benefits of a modest lifestyle, and how residing in a small house is one of the best ways to simplify our lives….

Practical Ways to Save Earth’s Precious Water

Around the world, approximately 700 million people in 43 countries suffer from water scarcity, and by 2025 two-thirds of the world's population may face water stress. Moreover, climate change is accelerating the scale of water shortages and increasing the size of affected areas. Governments and individuals need to change their attitudes about water, and overall resource management systems need to

Eco-friendly Inventions

The UK company, Skipping Rocks Lab, based in London, has developed a packaging alternative for drinking water and other beverages that eliminates the need for plastics. The process encapsulates drinking water in a flexible membrane or blob made of brown seaweed that is completely biodegradable, edible, and vegan. Besides eco-friendly inventions that reduce waste on land, brilliant inventions have been created to remove trash from bodies of water. Mr. Trash Wheel is a trash interceptor invented by Mr. John Kellett in 2008 that removes trash from the Jones Falls River at Inner Harbor in Baltimore, Maryland, USA. The waste collected is recycled or goes to waste-to-energy facilities.

Warning Signs to Help End Climate Change: Locust Swarms, Part 1 of 3

Warning Signs to Help End Climate Change: Locust Swarms, Part 1 of 3

On today’s program we’ll travel to Africa to learn about the recent massive invasion of locusts that the continent has experienced. The plague began in June 2019 and has continued through 2020. Billions of desert locusts, resembling dark storm clouds, have descended on the Horn of Africa, destroying vast areas of cropland and vegetation. Dr. Rick Overson of Arizona State University's Global Locust Initiative further explains, "They are powerful, long-distance flyers, so they can easily go a hundred-plus kilometers in a 24-hour period. They can easily move across countries in a matter of days, which is one of the other major challenges in coordinated efforts that are required between nations and institutions to manage them." The locust plague came as many countries in East Africa were already struggling to manage food insecurity caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. According to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), about 20 million people are experiencing acute food scarcity in Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, South Sudan, Uganda, and Tanzania. As billions of locusts have invaded farmers’ crops, the swarms have multiplied by as much as 400 times, spreading far beyond Kenya’s borders. An article in the scientific journal Nature reported that in Kenya one unusually large swarm occupied an area of 2,400 square kilometers, more than three times the size of New York City. Swarms typically occupy 100 square kilometers. Even at this size, they can contain from four- to eight-billion locusts, which can consume the amount of food 3.5 million people would eat in a day. “The swarms came from Yemen, then down from the Red Sea to the Horn of Africa. The unusual warm temperatures off the coast are partly to blame. The recent heavy rainfall has created the perfect breeding conditions.” The amount of unpredictable weather to come will be crucial in determining how long the crisis lasts and which areas will be affected next. Climate change experts have warned that warming oceans that feed cyclones could continue to create conditions for record-breaking swarms of desert locusts. Such plagues could grow larger and more widespread if climate change continues.

Warning Signs to Help End Climate Change: Locust Swarms, Part 2 of 3

On today’s program, we’ll travel to Pakistan and India to learn how the insects have affected these countries. But first, let’s find out more about locusts, and why they’ve been so plentiful during the past year. Many scientists believe that climate change is largely responsible for the current locust plague. The unusually warm, wet weather in the normally arid areas around the Arabian Peninsula have created ideal conditions for the insects to hatch and multiply. (The) reason behind increased breeding of locusts this year [is] the Indian Ocean temperature changes, (and) increased numbers of abnormal rains and cyclones. So, increasingly, the number of insects over the Arabian Desert [is] roughly 8,000-fold. This year’s attack has been the worst in three decades. Scientists predict that the disaster will enhance as we enter monsoon season. This year’s outbreak has been the worst in Pakistan in nearly three decades, causing billions of dollars in damage and raising concern about food shortages. Pakistan’s prime minister, His Excellency Imran Khan, Shining World Leadership Award for Good Governance laureate, declared the invasion a national emergency, and the government has pledged to assist farmers. Since April 2020, swarms of locusts of biblical proportions have been attacking India. The skies over some parts of the country have been blackened by the insects soaring overhead. The vast swarms have devastated crops in India's heartland, and are now threatening food supplies in the world’s second-most populous country. And the locusts continued to move through the nation. On June 29, 2020, a cloud of insects several kilometers long swarmed into New Delhi, India’s capital region, flying through metro stations and playgrounds, invading sugar cane fields and threatening major losses to the agricultural sector. The infestation came at an already difficult time for New Delhi. Dr. Anshu Sharma of the Sustainable Environment and Ecological Development Society (SEEDS), a non-profit disaster management organization, says that India faces a number of challenges in the months ahead: "We need to be alert and anticipate where this is going next. The situation is all the more alarming as it comes at a time when the affected states are already reeling under COVID-19 and the ongoing heatwave."

Plastic Pollution: Its Consequences for Rivers and Oceans, Part 2 of 3

Plastic Pollution: Its Consequences for Rivers and Oceans, Part 2 of 3

On today’s program, we continue our exploration, as we travel to Africa to visit the magnificent River Nile. This 6,650-kilometer-long waterway runs through 11 countries on the African continent, and an estimated 250 million people rely on it for drinking water, household use, and irrigation. In June 2020, the British free-to-air television news channel Sky News aired a remarkable documentary called “The Plastic Nile.” Hosted by Emmy and BAFTA-Award winning journalist and special correspondent Ms. Alex Crawford, the film revealed the extent of plastic pollution all along the river. “This is the majestic Nile, the world’s longest river, crucial to the survival of millions of people. The Nile is basically a life source for them. But now the river’s existence is threatened, like never before. Everywhere you walk, it’s all plastic. We followed the polluted waters from the river’s source. For the first time, we revealed the full extent of plastic pollution across five countries.” The pollution in the Nile has become an international issue. Every year, the River Nile dumps an estimated 18,000 tons of plastic waste into the Mediterranean Sea. It is truly a wake-up call for the world. “And we urge the international community to take immediate action, before it’s too late.” “If we don’t do anything to save the Nile, the Nile is going to die.” African governments have been taking action to halt further plastic pollution. For example, South Sudan has already taken an important step. “And also with the lack of recycling plants, all these plastics are being littered, in the end they find themselves in streams, our main streams in Juba, and during the rainy season, all these plastic bottles are washed into the river, causing a lot of pollution of the River Nile. And we know that the River Nile is very important. And we have the largest wetlands in Africa, which is the Sudd. So, the government, in 2015, came up with a ministerial order banning the use and importation of plastic bags in the country. And now it is forbidden for anyone to be using plastic bags in the country.” Kenya also banned the use of plastic bags in 2017, imposing a fine of up to US $40,000 for anyone producing, selling – or even just carrying – a plastic bag. Ethiopia and Uganda have followed suit with similar bans. Supreme Master Ching Hai has often warned about the detrimental impact of plastic pollution on humans, animals, and the environment. She also reminds us that plastic water bottles are not good for our health. “Drinking water from plastic bottles is not that healthy. The plastic leaches out tiny particles into the water. Those are the components from the plastic bottles which leach out and mix with the water. We can’t see them but the water has some of those components in it. If we continue to drink the water or soda in plastic bottles, in the long term, our blood will be full of those.”

Zoonotic Diseases: Nature’s Self-Defense, Part 2 of 2

Today we’ll further explore the causes, interconnections, and solutions for our planet’s public health and economic crises. In June 2020, the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) released a report entitled, “COVID-19: Urgent Call to Protect People and Nature,” urging governments, corporations, organizations, and the public to take action to restore our broken relationship with nature and thus avoid future pandemics involving zoonotic infections, defined by the report as “any diseases originating from animals and transmitted to humans.” Among the many suggested initiatives to be implemented, some to be applied by governments are: a) halt the high-risk wildlife trade and increase enforcement to combat the illicit wildlife trade; and b) introduce and enforce legislation and policy actions to eliminate deforestation and conversion from supply chains. “To talk about nature is to talk about our essence, is to talk about us. The forest, the leaves, nature, the wind, the rain – it is sacred. Everything is sacred. In my language, it's called, ‘u-tã’ -- everything is sacred. Nature and the indigenous people are the whole of harmony. The indigenous people cannot live without nature, without the river. The earth has life; it cries when it is destroyed.” Defined by The International Ecotourism Society as “responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment, sustains the well-being of the local people, and involves interpretation and education,” ecotourism could be part of the solution to our profits vs. planet issues. Countries such as Costa Rica, Ecuador, Kenya, Nepal, Madagascar, and regions like Antarctica already use ecotourism as an important economic activity. The WWF for Nature report also recommends “scaling up efforts to combat the trade of illegal and high-risk species at national and international levels.” Some organizations including The International Anti-Poaching Foundation and The Black Mambas Anti-Poaching Unit, both in Africa, are putting forth efforts to stop the illegal hunting and capturing of wild animals. And last but not least, some enterprises have virtually taken land use out of the equation. Watergen, Ô Amazon Air Water, Solar Foods, and Fairbrics are some of the innovative businesses using air as a primary source for the development of food, water, and even clothing – avoiding the devastation of forests and the conversion of natural ecosystems, as well as preventing contact with wild fauna carrying viruses not yet known to human beings.

00:14:54

Plastic Pollution: Its Consequences for Rivers and Oceans, Part 1 of 3

On today’s program, we’ll examine the global issue of plastic pollution and learn how the problem began. The production of plastic is relatively new; the first manufacture only began during the 1940’s. Over the ensuing decades, we have become increasingly reliant on plastic in many aspects of our lives. If we look around us, we’ll see that we’re surrounded by plastic. Since the development of plastic products began, we have produced approximately 8.3 billion tons of the material globally. While plastic is wonderfully strong and durable, it is also an environmental hazard for the same reason. This is so because non-biodegradable forms of plastic take hundreds of years to break down. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), a plastic water bottle requires 450 years to decompose. Moreover, the vast extent of environmental damage caused by plastic is raising concern, particularly with regard to marine animals. The United Nations estimates that plastic causes the deaths of up to one million water birds every year. In 2017, a dead Cuvier’s beaked whale was discovered on the beaches of Norway, after having ingested 30 single-use plastic bags. In 2019, a dead pregnant sperm whale washed up on a beach in Sardinia, Italy. When her stomach was opened, researchers discovered 22 kg of plastic waste, including plastic fishing lines, plastic bags, plastic pipes, and even plastic dinner plates. “Due to irresponsible usage, plastic has become one of the most serious challenges in the ecological sphere.” 8 million tons of plastic end up in oceans every year Plastic makes up 10% of all of the waste we generate A million plastic bottles bought each minute 500 billion plastic bags used each year 67% of fish species in California are contaminated with plastic 94% of U.S. tap water 93% of bottled water contaminated by microplastics “They are saying, by 2050 there could be more plastic in the oceans than the fish.” What items are most frequently found in the ocean? Markus Eriksen, Co-Founder and Research Director of 5Gyres Institute explains, “What’s leaving land, heading out to sea is all this single-use packaging. It’s the straws, the bags, the bottles, the cup lids, the stir sticks; all this junk that we use once and throw away.” What can we do about this ever-growing problem? What are some of the most promising solutions?

Farmhouse Garden Animal Home: From Slaughter to Sanctuary, Part 3 of 3

When Edith and Mike first changed from operating a beef operation to running an animal sanctuary, they knew they would face many challenges. But they also knew deep in their hearts that it was the right thing to do. "I think for him (Mike), once he made the decision that he didn’t want to slaughter the animals anymore, it was just, 'That’s it.' He couldn’t do it anymore. We knew we were going to face some backlash, and we knew it was going to be difficult. But you just have to push through it because you know it’s the right thing to do. Yeah, he (Mike) definitely is really brave and compassionate. For me, ethically I know and spiritually that it’s the right thing to do. You feel more in line with your values in terms of the way that you live. I can’t imagine sitting down for dinner and having an animal on my plate. It just feels so wrong to me now. And I think once you make that connection, it’s hard to continue living an ethically and spiritually fulfilled life while you’re also eating animals." Many people are deeply grateful to Mike and Edith for sparing the lives of the innocent cows, and for founding an animal sanctuary where they can live. In fact, as soon as the sanctuary was created, volunteers offered to help. The story behind Farmhouse Garden Animal Home has touched the hearts of many, including non-vegans. And the sanctuary has received considerable media coverage. "It feels amazing to look at the animals and know that they’re safe and they’ll always be cared for. It’s such a fulfilling feeling knowing that I was a part of something that I think has inspired a lot of people and has helped so many animals. So I’m really happy with how far we’ve come and I’m proud of all the work that we’ve done. It’s a good feeling." Mike, Edith, and all the others involved with Farmhouse Garden Animal Home, we applaud your courage and determination to do what you feel is right. May you be blessed with good health, long lives and continued success.
