Scientists at the University of Washington School of Oceanography in the USA have observed a climate-related northward shift in a band of weather, also known as a rainfall feature, that brings up to 4 meters of precipitation each year to a region circling the equator.

As this rainfall feature is pushed further north, regions closer to the equator are drying, with the scientists
forecasting that places like the Pacific Islands will run out of fresh water by the middle of this century, or even sooner.

The study’s lead author, Dr. Julian Sachs, said, “We're talking about the most prominent rainfall feature on the planet, one that many people depend on as the source of their fresh water because there is no groundwater to speak of where they live.

In addition, many other people who live.. farther afield from the Pacific could be affected because this band of rain shapes atmospheric circulation patterns throughout the world.”

Dr. Sachs and associates, our sincere thanks for these detailed observations that warn of such a potentially devastating trend.

Let us unite in life-affirming lifestyles to restore the Earth’s vital balance. Wishing to spare humanity and all beings from plight, Supreme Master Ching Hai has long shared insights about how to protect ourselves and the planet, as in this September 1994 lecture in Singapore.

Supreme Master Ching Hai: Recently, our world has a lot of disasters, like drought. And then dry climate and heated-up planet due to a lot of weather changing.

And then the more it heat up, the more dry. The more dry, the less trees. The less trees, the less rain. The less rain, the less trees, and this is the devil circle.
And every corner of the earth, affects the whole planet. Therefore, if you yourself; your heart, your mind, your speech, your action are pure, how much beneficial can it be to this planet?

Supreme Master Ching Hai: The The vegetarian (vegan) diet is good for you; it would purify your spirit, purify your aura, and make you clear, inner and outside, and protect you.
