The Intensity and Unpredictability of Storms due to Climate Change

The increasing intensity of hurricanes, also known as typhoons or tropical cyclones, is the result of rising global temperatures caused by human-made greenhouse gas emissions. These storms are becoming more severe and destructive. Scientists tell us that as the Atlantic Ocean continues to warm, the changes in its surface temperature are fueling extreme storm activity.

Dr. James P. Kossin, a climate scientist from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, says, “It’s very likely that human-caused climate change contributed to that anomalously warm ocean. Greenhouse warming increases the maximum wind intensity that tropical cyclones can achieve. This, in turn, allows for the strongest hurricanes. Which are the ones that create the most risk by far, to become even stronger.” Dr. Kossin’s work on climate change and weather predictions reveal that a more significant percentage of upcoming hurricanes or storms of Categories up to 4 and 5 will be expected in 2022.

Professor Kerry Emanuel reiterated the alarming news: “Potential intensity is going up. It’s a forecaster’s nightmare. If a tropical storm or Category 1 hurricane develops into a Category 4 hurricane overnight, there’s no time to evacuate people.”

Our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai has worked tirelessly to warn us that to save our planet, we must quickly shift to a vegan lifestyle. “You may ask, what is the main cause of this damage and destruction to the environment? Perhaps surprisingly, it’s not the coal industry or cars or planes or trains or boats or ships. It’s methane, which is produced primarily by the livestock industry. A new and just-published report by the respected Worldwatch Institute states that livestock is the largest single contributor to greenhouse gases, responsible for more than 51% of the total emitted. This report factors in an atmospheric heat-trapping effect of methane that is 72 times - 72 times! – larger than CO2, when averaged over a 20-year period.

We have to act now for all of humanity. Because along with our own survival and health, there is an entire planet that is in trouble, and everyone needs to be vegan to save it. It’s a very simple solution that we might overlook. Because if we all change to vegan, put down the animal products, then we would have a dream world – that I promise.”
