Dr. James Hansen Leading climate scientist

DR. JAMES HANSEN (M):
Global warming increases the intensity of both extremes of the
hydrologic cycle, the water cycle. So, at the times and places when
it’s dry, a stronger greenhouse effect means that you get stronger
drying and higher temperatures, more extreme drought and as a result
more widespread fires, forest fires.
But, on the other hand as
the atmosphere gets warmer, it holds more water vapor. At a very strong
rate, the amount increases with temperature, and therefore when it does
rain, there’s a possibility of much heavier rains. We get some much
stronger rainfalls and therefore heavier floods. The frequency with
which these happen and the severity of them is definitely affected by

Supreme Master Ching Hai: Be
vegetarian and helping each other, that’s all we need to do. And the
planet’s disasters will cease to exist and cease to zero. All the
disasters, including natural disasters, are man-made. Man-made in a
sense that it is produced out of the negative energy that we have
generated for centuries or millions of years. “As we sow, so shall we
reap.” If you do some bad thing, the bad consequence will return to us
sooner or later.
Very simple. Be a vegetarian. Be loving and
kind. Be forgiving. And if possible at all, be a bearer of light.
Meaning, be enlightened. That should be absolutely enough to safeguard
your life on Earth and to safeguard a place in Heaven.
