recent report published by the United Kingdom’s climate change and
weather bureau, the Met Office Hadley Centre, used a sophisticated
climate model to forecast the melting of Greenland’s vast ice sheets in
response to further global warming. The study found that if just 15% of
the ice sheets melt, the glaciers would not fully recover, no matter
how much greenhouse gas emissions were subsequently reduced.

1.3-meters. Dr. Jeff Ridley, a Met Office Climate Scientist who
specializes in Polar Regions, stated:
“The effects of the
greenhouse gases we emit today will still be felt long into the future,
so we will need to start taking action now to stop temperature rises
that will still be happening at the end of this century.”
Ridley and Met Office colleagues, our thanks for this clear reminder of
our need to change immediately for the protection of human life and our
Let us all step now toward sustainable lifestyles that
bring harmony to the ecosphere.As part of her ongoing concern and
efforts to aid humanity, Supreme Master Ching Hai emphasized our need
to heed scientists’ warnings and act accordingly during an August 2008
interview by Ireland’s East Coast FM Radio.
Supreme Master Ching Hai: According
to the scientists, whatever they have predicted or prescribed about our
critical situation is accurate up to 99%. They want us to change the
way we live our lives, to protect our fragile ecosystem, by cutting
down CO2 emissions. And the fastest way that individuals can do, Referencehttp://www.egovmonitor.com/node/29288http://www.google.com/hostednews/ukpress/article/ALeqM5g_PKCb9LswGG2axOyYyQTDyT_P8w

truly critical now, as we have witnessed increasing disaster worldwide,
due to climate change. We still have time, we still have a little time
to change the course of destiny, thanks to the vegetarian population,
old and new members that reduce the most karmic retribution in the
shortest span of time.
Thus we have like an extended deadline before the no return point. But it’s not much. We must change fast to
avoid much more damage to the Earth as well as loss of more lives and resources.
