In a recent interview, Argentine expert Dr. Pedro Skvarca cautioned that all the glaciers in Antarctic’s northeast are melting rapidly and continuously. Dr. Skvarca, who heads the glaciology program of the Argentine Antarctic Institute has worked in the field for 38 years.
From direct observation in his travels to the region, he now states that some 400 kilometers of Antarctic ice melt are already causing ocean sea levels to rise.
Dr. Skvarca went on to say that recent Antarctic events, such as the collapse of the Larsen ice barrier and the receding Boydell and Sjogren glaciers have occurred much faster than the scientific community originally forecast.
Our heartfelt thanks, Dr. Pedro Skvarca for sharing your decades of expertise to advise of this urgent situation. May we all heed such a clear warning and act now to protect the Earth while we still can.
During an August 2008 videoconference with our Association members in Canada, Supreme Master Ching Hai, as in numerous other occasions, highlighted the critical need to reverse these signs of planetary danger.
