study by Oak Ridge National Laboratory in the US found that a rare
Arctic air mass that froze leaves in April 2007 caused the stream
beneath the trees to receive more exposure to sunlight.
This in turn increased the spring growth of aquatic algae, bacteria, snails and other organisms.
global warming is causing forest plants and trees to leaf earlier, thus
obstructing this seasonal development of biodiversity.
author Dr. Patrick Mulholland cautioned that the continuation of such a
trend could cause serious disruption to entire ecosystems because the
aquatic life no longer receives the timely warmth and stimulation of
Dr. Patrick Mulholland and Oak Ridge National Laboratory researchers, we are grateful for your detailed observations.
people quickly heed such warning signs and turn to more considerate,
eco-friendly ways to preserve our Earth’s beautiful biodiversity.
once again in concern for the fragile state of the planet, Supreme
Master Ching Hai reminded of humanity’s role in conserving nature
during the July 2008 Heart-Touch Tour videoconference in Formosa
Supreme Master Ching Hai:Everyone
knows by now that protecting the environment, protecting the animals,
are actually protecting ourselves. So we must protect the environment.Referencehttp://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2009/07/090723142116.htm http://www.esd.ornl.gov/people/mulholland/mulholland.html
We should have more rules, more guidelines, to protect natural habitats. Because sometimes we overlook the long run effect.
Then the consequence is very, very detrimental to ourselves and to the planet, just like what we are facing right now.
must be more aware of our dire situation and that everyone’s
responsible action does help to minimize or stop global warming. We
should act fast. Be veg. Go green.
