[GMW #3820] World Climate Requires Quick Actions - Starting 2001

[GMW #3820] World Climate Requires Quick Actions - Starting 2001 Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 3001 to 4000
~ Idea 4215 ~
August 2001 Returning to Costa Rica after two months in the United States I noticed the absence of the usual daily heavy rains during the prevailing rainy season. A lake on our farm, which replenishes every rainy season and a beautiful brook we have along our property, are both completely dry. I have never seen this during the past six years.

Francisco, our caretaker, confirmed that this was unprecedented in Costa Rica. So far there had been only three heavy rainfalls since the beginning of the rainy season while traditionally it rains strongly every day. The local population places the blame on the Niño current which is undergoing changes as a result of climatic changes.

I told him that when I was at the UN we received in the 1970's letters from scientists who pressed us to convene a world conference on climatic changes.

They predicted that the world would suffer from very fundamental ones. I was instrumental in convening a first World Conference on the Climate in 1979. I will never forget the prediction of the scientists that around the year 2020 all major ocean currents on this planet, including the Niño will change direction and that it would take a long time to see them return to their current course. It was even doubtful that they ever would.

It is only now, in the year 2001 that the world's governments recognize that we are facing a world climate problem. Let us hope that this recognition will be quickly followed by actions.

Sometimes I would like to live on this Earth as a saint or as a spirit, but my body is too heavy.  Perhaps when my soul will be liberated from my body I will remain on Earth as a spirit.  Perhaps that is the will of God or of evolution.

Forests, lakes, and rivers, clouds and winds, stars and flowers, stupendous glaciers and crystal snowflakes - every form of animate or inanimate existence, leaves its impress upon the soul of man.
