WARNING SIGNS TO AWAKEN HUMANITY (Part 1)
"FROM CRISIS TO PEACE...The Organic Vegan Way is the Answer"
(by The Supreme Master Ching Hai , November 2010)
Following are excerpts taken from Chapter 2
"Our current course of climate change is worse than the worst case scenario projected by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), with the damaging and often fatal effects already being seen through such extreme events as hurricanes, flooding, droughts and heat waves.
Even if the world reduces greenhouse gas emissions, the planet will take time to recover from the gases already in the atmosphere."
"The Arctic, or North Pole, may be ice free by 2012, 70 years ahead of IPCC estimations. Without the protective ice to reflect sunglight, 90% of the sun's heat can enter the open water, thus accelerating global warming."
GREENLAND AND THE ANTARCTIC ICE MELTS
"As the massive ice sheets of Greenland and the Antarctic continue to melt as well, catastrophic sea-level rise and stronger storms are expected to follow. If the entire West Antarctic sheet melts, global average sea levels would rise at least 3.3, 3.5 meters (10.8 - 11.8 feet), affecting over 3.2 billion people - that is half the world's population - who live within 200 miles of coastlines."
SINKING LAND AND CLIMATE REFUGEES
"A Report from the International Organization for Migration stated that there may be 200 million, or even up to one billion people who will be climate refugees by 2050, or within our lifetime. These are people who must leave their island or coastal homes due to rising sea levels or permafrost melts that cause entire communities or nations to sink and collapse."
METHANE HYDRATE: A TICKING TIME BOMB
"Another Arctic change is the thawing of the permafrost, a normally frozen layer of earth containing methane stores (methane hydrate). The thawing of this layer in recent years has caused methane to be released, with atmospheric levels that have risen sharply since 2004."
"Further global warming beyond a two-degree Celcius rise could cause billions of tons more of methane (hydrate from the bottom of the ocean) to be released into the atmosphere, leading to mass extinction of life on this planet."
"A temperature increase of merely a few degrees would cause these gases to volatilize and 'burp' into the atmosphere, which would further increase temperatures, which would release yet more methane, heating the Earth and seas further, and so on. There's 400 gigatons of methane locked in the frozen arctic tundra - enough to start this chain reaction... Once triggered, this cycle could result in runaway global warming." -John Atcheson, geologist"
"The quicker we change, the better, and then we can halt the climate change. and we can restore the planet very quickly, in no time, but if we don't, then the planet will also be destroyed quickly and in no time."
"Once the planet is destroyed, it will look like Mars, un-inhabitable. And it takes millions of years, sometimes hundreds of million years until any planet recovers, if it recovers at all."
