Tashi delek,

Here His Holiness the 17th Karmapa, explains something about his view regarding environmental protection in India and the Himalayas.
His Holiness is aware about the importance of a clean environment around His monasteries etc. , which in turn causes a better health :applause:
It is also a good example to the other people who are living there.

Rumtek Monastery hosts the 9th Annual Environmental Conference for Himalayas Buddhist Monasteries and Nunneries

April 2nd, 2018, Rumtek Monastery, Sikkim -

His Holiness the 17th Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje spoke from afar, sharing his thoughts via video, with 90 monastic representatives from 34 monasteries and nunneries this morning. He said “I am aware of how hard you have been working on environmental protection for the last nine years and very pleased with the success you have all achieved. Due to the importance of Tibet and the Himalayas as a source of water for billions of people downstream, I appeal to you all to also take up the responsibility of addressing climate change. We should see our actions of preserving nature and protecting the environment not only as ways of minimizing climate change impacts but also as part of our Buddhist practice because everything we do will benefit other sentient beings.”

Khoryug is an association of over 50 Tibetan Buddhist monasteries and nunneries spread across the Himalayan region and South India that carry out environmental protection activities. It was established by His Holiness the Karmapa in 2009 and is a non-sectarian community of eco-monasteries and nunneries leading projects ranging from environmental education, reforestation, river clean-up, spring-shed restoration, wildlife protection, and climate change adaptation. The monks and nuns gathered here for the 4-day conference manage environmental projects for their monastic institutions in Bhutan, India, and Nepal. The conference gives them the opportunity to learn more about building climate change resilience, to report back on their ongoing projects, and to discuss and share lessons learned from their previous experiences. The topic of the conference is: Climate Resiliency for Ourselves and Our Communities. The workshop includes training from partners such as ATREE, ECOSS, WWF, and UNDP, and the Science and Tech Department of the Government of Sikkim.

His Holiness has been teaching about climate change for many years. Citing that climate change can seem very overwhelming on a personal level, His Holiness who is a committed environmentalist and vegetarian, suggested that we see our response to climate change as a spiritual one and link it to the development of our inner self. He said, “ultimately, science and technology cannot bring about the needed change in people’s attitude and behavior. We need to combine dharma and science to do so successfully and I pray that Khoryug’s collective activity helps pave such a way forward.”

A better world with a better health.

Garlic is a very good remedy against many diseases.
But like always what is good for some one is bad for another one and vice versa.
To cook with garlic can be general seen as healthy.

A better world is also without chem trails. Chem trails contain substances which are bad for health.
there are many good ideas in this thread so far.

however: chemtrails do not exist. They are fiction.

I'm interested in this. Not to derail the thread, but I've certainly noticed a difference between normal contrails and what appear to be billowing lines across the sky that eventually spread into a haze.

I grew up near two international airports. There were also military aircraft in the area. Contrails were routinely observable. They dissipate into nothing a short distance behind the aircraft. To me, what we can see now in the sky over parts of the U.S. is different.

Now I live abroad, also near an international airport and military base with aircraft. Again, normal contrails are a daily occurance. No billowing crosshatched lines over here.

To your knowledge, is there some change in technology that causes what appear to be a totally different phenomenon, or is my observation off?

Engine design and wing design have evolved considerably over the past few decades. But the chemtrail conspiracy theory is just that: a conspiracy theory. It reveals itself as such because whenever they are presented with information refuting it, its proponents take that information as further evidence of a broader conspiracy
