The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) has published a comprehensive report intended to provide leaders at the upcoming climate change meeting in Denmark with solid research in support of urgent action.

Among its many findings were that the rapid Arctic melt and release of poisonous methane from melting permafrost could lead to dangerously irreversible climate change.

The report also stated that sea level rise would be twice that cited in the most recent UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change figures, due to the rapid melting of Greenland and the Antarctic.
Dr. Martin Sommerkorn, senior climate change advisor for WWF’s Arctic program said, "This report shows that it is urgently necessary to rein in greenhouse gas emissions while we still can. …

Simply put, if we do not keep the Arctic cold enough, people across the world will suffer the effects.” Our sincere appreciation Dr. Sommerkorn, World Wildlife Fund and all participating researchers for this in-depth evaluation of human-caused global warming.

We pray that leaders across the globe unite in commitment to sustainable lifestyles that protect our planet.
Supreme Master Ching Hai has on many occasions encouraged humanity’s quick response to the urgent facts being presented by the world’s scientists, as in this July 2008 videoconference in Tokyo, Japan.

Supreme Master Ching Hai: I think we’d better heed the warning of the scientists because otherwise it’s not just the ice melt, maybe we will melt also.
 I hope not! And we are working frantically toward saving the planet. So if we be vegetarian, our good karma of saving lives will in turn reward us with our lives saved. That’s all I can say.
