at the National Center for Scientific Research in France (CNRS) (Centre
national de la recherche scientifique) have discovered trapped pockets
of water beneath the Tête Rousse glacier on Mont Blanc.
warn that the 65,000 cubic meters of water that has collected inside the
glacier could burst, potentially destroying the 900 homes and other
structures in the region.
In a similar event in 1892, 200 people
lost their lives. The region’s current 3,000 residents have been
alerted, and drilling operations to drain the water are planned to begin
by August 15.
Dr. Christian Vincent of CNRS stated that the pockets
were ultimately the result of global warming, which had melted the
glacier’s protective snow cover.
This in turn has caused the
exposed surface to transmit winter cold more readily to where the water
collected in regions below, with the normal channels becoming frozen and
no longer able to drain.
Many thanks, Dr. Vincent and
associates at the French National Center for Scientific Research, for
revealing this imminent danger as we also appreciate the efforts to
Our prayers for swift public awareness that brings widely sustainable actions to eliminate such global warming hazards as these.
a May 2008 videoconference in South Korea, Supreme Master Ching Hai
shared deeper insight on how we can better avoid such threatening
environmental dangers through our own conscious actions.
Supreme Master Ching Hai:
It’s not only global warming that will be facing us. There will be
other things like sunspots exploding and we also have comets that might
hit the Earth, and we might have even explosive-like volcanoes from the
middle of the Earth, from the ocean that will blow everything up. http://www.spa.gov.sa/English/details.php?id=806173http://www.acqwa.ch/index.php?option=com_content&view=category&layout=blog&id=35&Itemid=64
it’s not the technical problem, it’s not the technical reparation we
have to concentrate on. It’s the retribution, the cause and retribution
that we have to pay attention to.
So, we just have to stop
killing. We just have to stop killing animals and man. We have to stop
it. And then everything else will suddenly come clear. We will find
better technical means to tackle the climate problem.
else will turn to peaceful way of life because we create peace and then
we will have peace. Peace not only among humans but among all
co-inhabitants. That’s why I keep emphasizing the vegetarian diet.
