A May 2010 report by the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) indicates that the world’s oceans have warmed steadily and significantly between 1993 and 2008.
The rate of warming was found to be slightly faster than previous estimates in the 4th Assessment Report by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
Moreover, as the warm seawater expands, sea levels have also been rising. Team leader Dr. John Lyman collaborated with researchers from the US National Aeronautic and Space Administration (NASA), the Met Office Hadley Center in the United Kingdom, the University of Hamburg in Germany, and the Meteorological Research Institute in Japan, to conduct nine separate evaluations of the upper 700 meters of the ocean.
The new findings on ocean warming presented strong confirmation of planetary climate change, especially with temperature data from water being more stable than land.
Peter Challenor of the UK’s National Oceanography Center affirmed the findings of the comprehensive data analysis as he stated, “This study … shows the warming is real.”
Dr. Lyman and fellow international scientists, we appreciate your detailed work in this confirming study of global warming. May we all act now while we can to protect the Earth and halt climate change. Based on this and other similar information, Supreme Master Ching Hai has long been urging for the most efficient planet-cooling solution, as during an interview published in the July 12, 2009 edition of the Irish Sunday Independent.
