Title: Global Warming is due to Ugra Karma

User: Swami Gaurangapada Date: 2006-06-28 18:23:15


Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna! All of us have experienced the extreme heat of summer this year. Even Navadvipa Dhaam had a record-breaking heat wave. In just one minute we would become drenched with our own perspiration. What is the reason for this?


From an article:


The world is in fact getting warmer--warmer than it's been in at least 400 years. It's Warmer--But Why? "The temperature of the Earth is determined by a balance of the energy entering the Earth-atmosphere system and the energy leaving the system. An energy imbalance imposed on the climate system either externally or by human activities is termed a climate forcing; persistent climate forcings cause the temperature of the Earth to change until an energy balance is restored."


"The main external climate forcings experienced over the last 2,000 years are volcanic eruptions, changes in solar radiation reaching the Earth, and increases in atmospheric greenhouse gases and aerosols due to human activities."


"Volcanic activity has not been anomalous as compared to the last 1,000 years and cannot be used to explain the late 20th century warmth."


"On the basis of satellite-based monitoring, which began in the late 1970s, it is clear that the rapid global warming of the last few decades is not attributable to an increase in the Sun's emission.


"Science Guesses Greenhouse Gases"


Since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution (ca. 1750), the concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere have increased considerably. . . . Carbon dioxide has increased from about 280 ppm during preindustrial times to current values of around 380 ppm. Methane has more than doubled from preindustrial levels, with more moderate but significant increases of nitrous oxide."


"The radiative forcing due to the increases of these and other long-lived greenhouse gases . . . is significantly larger than any variations or trends in the natural forcings as we understand them over the last 2,000 years."


"Climate model simulations indicate that solar and volcanic forcings together could have produced periods of relative warmth and cold during the preindustrial portion of the last 1,000 years. However, anthropogenic greenhouse gas increases are needed to simulate late 20th century warmth."


"The numerous indications that recent warmth is unprecedented for at least the last 400 years and potentially the last several millennia, in combination with estimates of external climate forcing variations over the same period, support the conclusion that human activities are responsible for much of the recent warming."


Bhagavad-gita As It Is 16.9: ""


etam drishtim avashtabhya

nashtatmano 'lpa-buddhayah

prabhavanty ugra-karmanah

kshayaya jagato 'hitah


Translation by Shrila Prabhupada:


"Following such conclusions, the demoniac, who are lost to themselves and who have no intelligence, engage in unbeneficial, horrible works meant to destroy the world."

It isnt just the heat either, the effects on environment are also evident. Sea levels are rising dramatically due to polar icecaps melting, mass flooding is predicted.


Advice..Get an environmentally friendly fridge, use roll on deodorant, head North and get inland!


Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna!

Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna! Yes, that's true.


aara naahiko kalira bhoya, aachandaale dena naama nitaai doyamoya


Seventh Goswami Shrila Saccidananda Bhaktivinoda Thakura sings: "There is no more fear of the deadly Kali Yuga because the Supremely Magnanimous Lord Nityananda is giving the pure Naam to even the fallen and wretched who never ask for the Naam." I remember how I used to sing this verse in my university days and jump so high in my room in the ecstatic remembrance of my Lord Nitai that I almost touched the roof.

there is a movie out which helps dismantling illusion, its called: An inconvenient Truth......


better jump into the cooling waters of chanting the holy names of Hare Krishna and Gauranga and Nityananda
