Venus shows signs of recent geological activity

A team of scientists led by researcher Dr. Nataliya Bondarenko of the University of California, Santa Cruz in the USA has found evidence of what may be recent volcanic activity on Venus. Analyzing data from a past US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) space mission, the scientists evaluated heat being emitted by more than 1,000 volcanoes on the planet’s surface.

They spotted a lava flow in Venus’ northern hemisphere that appeared to be some 185 degrees Fahrenheit hotter than expected. This detection of heat not only signifies an eruption that is likely only decades old, it could mean that Venus overall is more geologically active than was previously understood.

What a fascinating discovery! Many thanks for these diligent observations, Dr. Bondarenko, colleagues and all others involved, as we look forward to hearing more about our sister planet and the mysteries she reveals. During an August 2009 videoconference with Supreme Master Television staff in Los Angeles, California, USA,
Supreme Master Ching Hai spoke of the history behind Venus’s volatility and how such insights are reminders of the need for humanity to be better stewards of our own planet Earth.

Supreme Master Ching Hai: Our neighboring planets like Venus, Mars, have similar landscape. Some are more strikingly exquisite, more beautiful. It was once a beautiful planet, and now it’s no more. There’s no life up there at all, not life as we know of. It’s a pity. Within a few weeks’ time, the whole planet was destroyed.

Yes, destroyed because of the poisonous gases, yes from livestock. Of course, it triggered other gases yeah? from the ocean, from the warm ocean as you know. It’s similar to our planetary problem right now.

It happened too fast for them. And they did not really have time. They did not really care about this vegetarian diet. They did not really go into any spiritual dimension.

Some time ago, I said if we have like, two-thirds of the planet population vegetarian, then we could have saved the planet too, but now it’s too late. Now we need the whole planet population to be compassionate. Vegan would be the best.
