year-long study by an international team of scientists has reached the
same conclusions as the 2007 UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate
Change report, namely that global warming has been induced by humans.
by the United Kingdom’s Met Office, the study evaluated more than 100
recent scientific papers, finding that only human activities could
account for the millions of tons of greenhouse gases emitted and the
corresponding steep rise in global temperatures since the mid-twentieth
Lead researcher Dr. Peter Stott stated, “The
fingerprint of human influence has been detected in many different
aspects of observed climate changes. Natural variability, from the sun,
volcanic eruptions or natural cycles, cannot explain recent warming.”
signs include new evidence of warming in the oceans, which in turn is
causing increased atmospheric evaporation, with resulting accentuation
of weather extremes worldwide, so that places like the United Kingdom
become wetter while arid areas such as East Africa are even more dry.
sincere appreciation, Dr. Stott and other Met Office scientists for
your factual assessment of humanity’s role in the Earth’s now-perilous
Let us heed such compelling conclusions and swiftly adopt
lifestyles that protect our planet for future generations. Supreme
Master Ching Hai has often emphasized the human-based causes and need
for immediate action in curbing global warming, as during an interview
published in the September 2009 edition of The House Magazine.
Supreme Master Ching Hai: It’s
too serious. Too serious. Although there is no way to assess
completely, for the moment, already more than a decade ago the United
Nations conservatively estimated http://www.independent.co.uk/environment/climate-change/humans-umustu-be-to-blame-for-climate-change-say-scientists-1916506.html http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/2832934a-27f6-11df-9598-00144feabdc0.html
that there were 25 million climate
change refugees – a decade ago, These are people forced from their homes
and communities due to rising sea levels and a host of other natural
disasters, so-called natural disasters,
but in fact these are all man-made.
Supreme Master Ching Hai:
These situations will only worsen, not improve, until we stop the
cause. This means to halt the livestock production and meat consumption.
If humans switch to the vegan diet, the Earth will begin cooling
immediately and many of these dilemmas can even be reversed. So please,
be veg and do good, to save the planet and all the beings on it,
including you and me.
