First, we will learn about the current climate change situation from renowned scientists, researchers, and world leaders. They will share the latest scientific facts, many of which are not widely discussed. They will also suggest solutions to global warming which are both practical and easily implemented. Finally, we will take a look at what our world might look like after these solutions are implemented.

Supreme Master Ching Hai (vegan): “I am very grateful to courageous leaders in the world for stepping out of their boundary and to speak out for the sake of everyone. Even if the public does not appreciate their goodwill, Heaven will take note. and they will have a great reward hereafter. It is, of course very difficult to be in the position of authority. To be a leader is to be endowed with bravery, compassion and nobility. That’s why you are a leader. It’s not easy, of course, to be in the position of ‘leader.’ That’s why leaders are few.” “But fewer even still are brave leaders, courageous leaders, righteous leaders and wise leaders. To such wise and courageous ones, we offer full support and respect. We pray that Heaven gives them more strength, more wisdom to carry out their noble duty.”

“Being a leader, we must know what is good for our subjects and what is not. And what is good, we have to encourage them to do, facilitate them to do. And what is bad, we have to stop, to protect them. That is the true meaning of ‘a leader.’”

Mr. Williams (m): “We’ve studied the pyramid (food pyramid) of how each time you go up a ladder from the biomass that is produced by our autotrophs to the next level, all the way to the top, we lose energy, and so, the eating of animals is very bad. We should go to more a vegetarian diet. Our culture has been raised on these animals but it has gotten our ecosystem out of order.”

Dr. Richard Dittman(m): “It’s a nice review of the scientific results of studies and I thought that was very good. I think we have to save the habitat and get to a sustainable lifestyle. I think all human beings have a duty to fellow human beings and to our habitat and to other species, and I think the idea of not being cruel and exploitative, I share those kinds of values.”
