Experts urge more crop farming and plant-based lifestyle to end Mongolian desertification.
more studies reveal findings of an increase in climate extremes in
Mongolia, scientists are particularly concerned about the rapid spread
of desertification caused by global warming and land degradation due to
Presidential advisor on environmental policy, Mr.
Zorigt. E, spoke recently revealed some of the most recent and alarming
data about the impact of climate change across the country.Zorigt. E – Ecology and environmental policy advisor to the President of Mongolia (M):
Twenty percent of all rivers have gone, according to the last count. Many other rivers and lakes are close to disappearing.
percent of all territory has been affected by desertification. The
northern part of the desertified area includes the capital city. Such an
actual process already has become reality. Now we have to wake up and
pay attention to it.
VOICE: In Mongolia, 82% of the total land
area is designated as permanent pasture for livestock grazing, which the
United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization has reported is the
largest single threat to biodiversity loss in Mongolia and throughout
Mr. Zorigt and other Mongolian experts such as
Professor Mijidorj. R, executive director of Mongolia’s Center for
Ecology and Sustainable Development, are urging for immediate changes in
lifestyle and suggest crop farming as the solution.Dr.
Mijidorj. R – Professor, University of Science and Technology;
Executive Director of the Center for Ecology and Sustainable Development
We must make changes in our policy for the livestock
industry and crop farming. As far as crop farming is concerned, we
should start with the nutritious
and meat-replacing crops as much as possible.
researchers have documented that this is the main solution and suggest a
reduction in meat consumption. Global warming could happen more
intensely and quicker than we think,so we don’t have the right to waste
VOICE: Our appreciation Professor Mijidorj and Presidential
Advisor Mr. Zorigt for your urgent calls for changes to stop
desertification and climate change.
With wholehearted agreement, may
nations everywhere protect themselves from harmful environmental
impacts by switching to organic vegan agriculture and fare.
January 2009, during a videoconference with dignitaries and the public
in Mongolia, Supreme Master Ching Hai expressed her concern once again
for humanity as she spoke of the cruelty-free practices that would best
halt the adverse effects of global warming.
Supreme Master Ching Hai:
Even the Gobi desert, which covers the Mongolian landscape, is a
fragile ecosystem that is easily destroyed by overgrazing. This results
in the desert land turning into stony wasteland, where not even camels
can survive.http://www.google.com/hostednews/afp/article/ALeqM5jHAMNZpU6UTXfenBraBdrD9Q5IfQ http://www.fao.org/fileadmin/templates/lead/pdf/e-conf_05-06_background.pdf
So, in order to neutralize the effects of global
warming, such as these land changes resulting from the evermore severe
climate, we must stop the raising of livestock to kill for food. We must
live a vegan, animal-free, cruelty-free lifestyle according to
scientific evidence that this is the best way for us to stop the global
warming, and the fastest, most efficient and most long-lasting.
more and more people choose organic farming as well, we help each other
to the best possible of our ability and most gentle way for all beings
and the Earth.
