an estimated 80% of greenhouse gases emitted over the past several
decades having been absorbed by the oceans, their waters have become
warmer in the process. In a new analysis, US-based researchers at
University of Washington and the National Atmospheric and Oceanic
Administration (NOAA) found that even the deepest and coldest ocean
waters are now registering their absorption of the warmth, with the
steepest temperature rises occurring around the southern pole of
Temperatures recorded at depths below 1,000 meters
over the past 20 years revealed that increases are small due to the
vastness of the seas, which translates to an enormous capacity for
In fact, if the heat currently being poured into
the deep ocean were to stay in the atmosphere instead, our ambient
temperature would rise at a rate of 3 degrees Celsius per decade.
scientists warn, however, about these warming waters’ adverse effects.
Along with the disturbance to marine ecosystems, they are contributing
to sea level rise in two ways: about half coming through the expansion
of water as it warms, and the other half through the melt of freshwater
ice from the Antarctic continent into the ocean.

reverse these far-reaching environmental consequences.

A group of scientists from the International Alliance of Research
Universities just published findings saying that the rate of sea level
rise and oceanic warming are both substantially higher than what the UN
Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, IPCC, estimated just a couple
of years ago. http://www.livescience.com/environment/global-warming-southern-ocean-sea-level-rise-100920.htmlhttp://www.physorg.com/news204290167.html http://www.noaanews.noaa.gov/stories2010/20100920_oceanwarming.html
I sat in the seaside of one of the very big,
famous city and nation – rich, prosperous, prestigious seaside. And
suddenly it dawned into my head, questioning, "My God, 4 years later,
will this city still exist?" And I just shook my head, I don’t want to
see any vision about it.
It is better we concentrate on the
solution to save the Earth. We can still do it. If everyone becomes part
of the solution, which is the organic life-saving vegan diet.
if we do not act now to spare life and offer our kindness, the course
of the Earth will follow some of the most dire predictions already made
by scientists, in terms of immense sea level rise, poisonous gas
release, and massive extinctions that, of course, could include us
So, let us all act now to ensure the future that we
want, and the one we want for our children. That is Be Veg, Go Green 2
Save the Planet.
