In a recent interview, Argentine expert Dr. Pedro Skvarca
cautioned that all the glaciers in Antarctic’s northeast are melting rapidly and
continuously. Dr. Skvarca, who heads the glaciology program of the Argentine
Antarctic Institute has worked in the field for 38 years.
observation in his travels to the region, he now states that some 400 kilometers
of Antarctic ice melt are already causing ocean sea levels to rise.
Skvarca went on to say that recent Antarctic events, such as the collapse of the
Larsen ice barrier and the receding Boydell and Sjogren glaciers have occurred
much faster than the scientific community originally forecast.
heartfelt thanks, Dr. Pedro Skvarca for sharing your decades of expertise to
advise of this urgent situation. May we all heed such a clear warning and act
now to protect the Earth while we still can.
During an August 2008
videoconference with our Association members in Canada, Supreme Master Ching
Hai, as in numerous other occasions, highlighted the critical need to reverse
these signs of planetary danger.
Supreme Master Ching Hai : The time of
disappearing of the ice means also the spelling of trouble for our planet. Of
course it would be better if we already saved the planet before the ice melted.
But as it is, we can only do the best we can and trying to inform
everybody to save themselves by being vegan. If the ice melts quicker, then, of
course, we have shorter time to save the planet.
But nevertheless because
people are joining the vegan diet, we still can manage to save the world.
