Scientists find human activities cause the Amazon to lose capacity to cool the Earth.
Research by a team of over 30 international scientists warned that destructive human practices, including logging and deforestation, are increasing the “risk of sudden collapse” of the Amazon Basin’s regional climate and hydrological system. Entitled “Carbon and Beyond: The Biogeochemistry of Climate in a Rapidly Changing Amazon,” the study pointed out that cattle ranching is driving widespread deforestation in the biome, with Brazil as the “epicenter” of damage. Alarmingly, the warming effect of not only CO2 but also non-carbon gases, especially methane and nitrous oxide, emitted by the Amazon from these damaging human actions is estimated to “most likely exceed” the cooling effect of the Basin’s current CO2 uptake, if it has not already done so. To restore balance, lead author Dr. Kristofer Covey of United States-based Skidmore College and his colleagues urge a curb in detrimental activities, particularly deforestation, and an increase in reforestation efforts. Many thanks, Dr. Kristofer Covey and all scientists involved. In Heaven’s brilliance, may humanity quickly embrace the environmentally friendly vegan lifestyle to revitalize and save the Earth.

Hey, optimistic friends, how are you doing? I’m Penelope the vegan Chinstrap Penguin. Have you ever heard of the expression “strong as an ox?” Well, adopt a vegan diet and you can become just that! According to the award-winning DailyCaring website, if you have an elderly loved one coping with a cognitive disorder, try spending time with them while giving them a productive task to complete. For instance, folding laundry is a great activity for this as it makes them feel like they are positively contributing to the household. Start with hand towels, as these are small and can be easily folded. It doesn't matter if the towels are neatly folded-- the point of the activity is it makes your beloved elder feel good and successful. Just remember to be patient and let them do it at their own pace. Thank you for tuning in and much love for Being Veg and Going Green 2 Save the Planet thus save the world! Now, the weather around our beautiful globe.
Finland listed as the happiest country in the world.
According to the 2021 World Happiness Report, Finland has been named the happiest country in the world for the fourth consecutive year, despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. The annual report, sponsored by the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network, ranks 149 countries based on factors such as social support, personal freedom, opinions of residents, and gross domestic product. Finland stood out with its high level of mutual trust amongst its citizens, which also helped to safeguard lives during the pandemic. Second place went to Denmark and third to Switzerland, with nine of the 10 happiest countries being European. Congratulations, Finland! May we all realize our innate loving nature to create a blissful life wherever we are on Earth, in the guidance of the Divine.
Wind power generation doubles in Australian state.
Data from management consultants Cornwall Insight Australia has shown that wind power in the state of Victoria is a growing complement to its solar power and is displacing fossil fuel-based generation. In 2017, wind and gas respectively contributed six percent and nine percent of the state’s power in the evening, but as more wind turbines have been installed, gas delivered only three percent, and wind was up to 14% in 2020. Kudos, Victoria, on your increasing sustainable power, and thank you, Cornwall Insight Australia, for this good news. In the blessings of the Providence, may all Australian states soon switch to completely renewable power, along with the energy- and planet-saving vegan diet.
First female tour guide in Afghanistan advances women’s empowerment.
Having overcome many societal challenges, 22-year-old Fatima, a student of journalism at Herat University, is the first and only woman working as a tour guide in Afghanistan. Born in rural Ghor Province, Fatima grew up as a shepherd, and worked diligently to be the only one of eight siblings to be educated. In late 2020, United Kingdom-based adventure travel agency Untamed Borders hired Fatima as tour guide in Afghanistan. Speaking on the importance of women in a nation’s progress, Fatima, who also teaches English to refugee girls and runs her own radio show, said, “I’m sure the world will be a better place, … would be a beautiful place and a peaceful place if men and women … were just allowed to work together…” You are truly an inspiration, Fatima. May all be able to fulfill their dreams in a nurturing and uplifting world, in Allah’s glory.
Up next on Noteworthy News, Oxford University student starts vegan leather brand. We’ll pause for a moment to step outside to organize our waste bins into biodegradables, recyclables, and non-recyclables for easier garbage collection. We’ll return with more motivating news on Supreme Master Television. Welcome back to Noteworthy News – Distinguished News for a Joyful World.
Oxford student establishes vegan leather business in Colombia.
Gabriel Moreno, a Master’s student in Science at Oxford University in the United Kingdom, and his father Alejandro Moreno of Colombia have co-founded Fiquetex. The Fiquetex vegan leather is made from the fiber of the fique plant, which is native to Colombia. It is 100% biodegradable, environmentally friendly, compassionate, and uses less energy to produce compared to animal-based leather. Fiquetex will have the ability to produce three million meters of vegan leather a year, 80% of which will be exported. Besides providing employment opportunities and skill development to local farmers, Fiquetex expects to prevent 11,000 tons of CO2 from entering the atmosphere by 2025. Our warm applause, Alejandro and Gabriel Moreno, for caring for the environment and the people of Colombia. May vegan businesses spring up in every corner of the globe, in God’s watchful gaze.
Powerful film about the seafood industry airs on Netflix.
From the creators of Cowspiracy and What the Health comes Seaspiracy – a new documentary exposing the truth behind the seafood and fishing industry. In the same investigative journalistic style as the previous two films produced by Shining World Compassion Award recipients Kip Anderson and Keegan Kuhn, Seaspiracy gives viewers a closer look into the US$10 billion industry. The eye-opening documentary directed by Ali Tabrizi has been lauded by the public as providing a pivotal change to their future dietary choices. Paul Watson of Sea Shepherd, a Shining World Hero Award recipient, is quoted in the film saying: “If you want to address climate change, the first thing you do is protect the ocean. And, the solution to that is very simple. Leave it alone.” Our sincere gratefulness and well wishes to the brave Seaspiracy team and contributors. May Heaven always shield you and all involved as you strive to protect the innocent and vulnerable sea life and our valuable oceans.
Have you heard this joke before? Now you will, it’s called, “Solemn Promise.”
“You know I can fight the world for you.”
“But you only keep fighting with me.”
“Because you are my world, darling!”
And now we have a heartline from Emma in the United States:
Dear Supreme Master TV team, I wrote a poem that I would like to share. It is for the animals who are suffering and waiting for help. It ties together the visible and invisible suffering of this world and writes of the hope that Heaven is taking care of it.
Poem for my animal friends and forever support: When you lie down in that crammed, small cage. Unable to turn around. Lying in filth. Coerced beyond your physical, emotional, and mental limits. Separated from all love; surrounded by the coldness of life. When you thought it couldn’t get worse, there are voices who whisper to destroy what is left of the spirit, “This is everything you have deserved, did you think you were good?”
When that happens, don’t give up. Salvation is coming. Just close your eyes and pray with us, with Heaven, and with Master. Heaven is furious at those who caged you and at those who whisper to justify the violence. Salvation is coming, salvation is near.
When you struggle to keep your babies near, yet still have to watch helplessly as they are snatched away, chained, and caged. Over and over again, you suffer the highest pain of motherhood. Knowing they will suffer your fate, your heart breaks. In your weakest moment, those voices come back, seeing the opportune time, they chime, “This is your karma, these are your chains. All are what you deserve, don’t you know?”
When that happens, don’t give up. Just close your eyes and pray with us, with Heaven, and with Master. Heaven is furious at those who cage you and those who cruelly watch. The Universe will see your freedom through. Salvation is coming, salvation is near. Salvation is coming, salvation is near. Emma from the United States
Loving Emma, We are proud to share your moving poem with the world and pray that those who hear the words will be touched in the deepest part of their heart. May our dream of a peaceful, vegan world materialize soon. A world where words such as fear, pain and suffering are a mere distant memory. A world where salvation has finally come to answer all our prayers. In Master we trust. May your great country of America be a leader in creating a vegan planet, and may you and your nation be blessed a thousand-fold, Supreme Master TV team
P.S. Here is Master’s reply just for you: “Benevolent Emma, your words draw tears from my eyes and my heart. It is evident that your poem is written with a profound love for the animals who suffer in silence daily in animal factories, labs, and other places of darkness where they are heartlessly abused and finally killed in an utterly cruel manner. Heaven does take note, and that is why we must pray for World Vegan. Please ask all in your circle to join us during the daily prayer time. May you and the fine citizens of the United States be surrounded by serenity, in God’s mercy. I LOVE YOU.”
