country’s Geological Service reports that the Amazon River, the world’s
longest at almost 7,000 kilometers, has shrunk to its lowest level in
nearly half a century, with the waterway in the city of Manaus a
significant four meters below its average depth of 23 meters.
data to be released later in October is expected to confirm that the
current drought is the worst Brazil has experienced since 1963. Seven
remote communities, normally accessible only by water, have now become
isolated as their tributary disappeared.
Service, we appreciate this information, despite its disturbing
implications for brethren in Brazil and throughout the world. We pray
for swift actions that restore the majestic Amazon and protect all lives
on the planet. During an August 2009 videoconference in Thailand,
Supreme Master Ching Hai shared her concern about the rapidly
diminishing waterways that threaten our survival, while urging for the
most immediate solution.
Supreme Master Ching Hai :
We have over six billion people in this world and the sources of
groundwater for wells, which supports half of our world population, are
dying, drying up. http://www.france24.com/en/20100916-drought-shrinks-amazon-river-lowest-level-47-years
And the top ten global river systems, drying
or ebbing away. And three billion people are short of water. How many
more, I don’t know, how many more of suffering people are we waiting
before we take action? Please do it now! Just be veg. Stop the meat,
dairy, fish industry.
Be benevolent. Create a merciful energy that
will envelop our world, that will emit mercy, love, protection for us
and our children on this planet. Please take action now. Very simple.
Just be veg.
