Experts warn of severe water shortages by 2080

Scientists warn of water shortage due to climate change. At a regional conference on global warming in Singapore, Professor Wong Poh Poh from the National University of Singapore and member of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, stated that global warming’s disturbance of natural water flow patterns could affect half the world’s population.

Speaking of the human impact on global warming, Rozali Ismail, head of a state water association in Malaysia said, “Floods, drought, changing rainfall patterns and rising temperatures are signs of our misdeeds to nature.” Adaptive and planet-cooling measures were recommended for all countries.

Thank you participating scientists for your call to address global warming and protect our water supplies. May we join together in doing our part to conserve this precious resource for the benefit of all beings.

In a videoconference for the Climate Change International Conference which took place on July 26, 2008 in California, USA, Supreme Master Ching Hai had reiterated the solution to preserving our water supply and saving the planet.

Supreme Master Ching Hai: Now we are complaining about shortage of water everywhere on the planet. One serving of beef, we use 1,200 gallons of clean good water. One serving of chicken, 330 gallons of water, clean and good. And one complete vegan meal, including rice or bread or tofu, that is full of protein, and vegetables, it cost only 98 gallons of water.

God has created enough water for us, enough food for us to last even forever, if we but know how to stop abusing the Earth’s resources and her sustenance. We should not kill our fellow beings to satisfy our greed. And this is the main point of planetary problems right now - our overly spending of our moral merit and world resources. When we just stop eating meat, then we have 70% plus water to use. Just leave that piece of meat out of your diet. Let peace begin on your table.
