For those who are disturbed by the question raised by the OP, my suggestion is to look for aspects of his/her posts which may need to be addressed as they relate to your personal practice.  For example:  My practice reflects my personal experience with environmental health and safety.  What I can relate to is the ignorance of those in the world, who campaign to "save The Earth", but ride around the country in jets spewing decomposition products of the combustion of aviation fuel adding pollutants and CO2.  Then there are those who sit at computers writing complaints about the terrible things that "those bad folks out there are doing" to pollute our atmosphere.  And of course the protesters that show up at political rallies complaining of pollution, but  drove there in gasoline fueled, and diesel fueled cars and busses.

When asked to just inhale, and never to exhale to prevent CO2  from entering the atmosphere, they always (invariably) refuse.

Go figure! :curtain:
What Makes an Elder? :
A head of gray hairs doesn't mean one's an elder. Advanced in years, one's called an old fool.
But one in whom there is truth, restraint, rectitude, gentleness,self-control, he's called an elder, his impurities disgorged, enlightened.
-Dhammpada, 19, translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu.

Good answer Ron. For me, everything is change, so meditating on the end of the world, and universe, is a vital practice at the right time. As to my place in trying to destroy the world, I drive a car, etc, so am part of the problem. In mitigation, I spent the last 30 years teaching young children about recycling, using renewable energy, and so on. For a number of years I took groups of children to the Centre for Alternative Technology in Wales, UK, to learn how to live more in harmony with the world. They were only 11 yrs at the time, so it's dificult to know what sort of impact the experience had for them, but I thought it worth the trouble. I guess it was a sort of engaged Buddhism for me?
“You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait, be quiet, still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.” Franz Kafka

What you are doing is trying to smallen symptoms but protecting the causes.

The pope is advising the christians in the following way: Only "god" would be able to save the world. Humans would be unable (like they are kept unmight and unable of doing the smallest things by the papacy and judaism christianity) to solve the environmental problems, they would only be able to smallen symptoms.

This is because in order to solve the problem the cause must be removed, the cause is the papacy, monotheism, radical elitist christianity, judaism, their pyramid structure of secret orders, which are in fact controlled by a single person on top which is the only god allowed int he world, quite for sure its rothschild, tribe of david, the "messias". This "god" would be the only person so solve the problems, obviously it doesnt wants... as it has so far made extinct half of all species of the world.

What you are doing, as we can see, the threatening of symptoms is exactly what the monotheists are wanting from you and what they are ordering from. So you are basically working for them. Therefor you can also not say clearly that you are against hte destruction of the world and that you are against the causes, and that the causes must clearly by analyzed, found out and that the effective way to fight them must be found.

In the meantime you talk some nonsense of that it is ok that the jews and christians wipe out the world and kill and make extinct every living being in existance, because everything would have an end, and that we must be confident and happy with it.

The reason why this is so, is because these radical jews and christians have already long time ago infiltrated this so called buddism and  have infected almost all "religions" of the world with their endtime ideas and goals and that the leading parts of them are mostly all accepting this self inflicted "end of the world" and are taking part, are protecting the causes aso. There are endtimers everywars in hinduism, buddism they even try to shift it onto cultures that are long gone like germanic tribes or inkas, which were really nature loving.

This all is happening, they are all working together with these jews, but are they working together with other non-monotheist. Non-monotheists are all stupidly helping the jews, but are they helping eachother, support eachother? Is there a group of "polytheists" and non-monotheists raising the word against the world destruction  and that is effectively working together, analyzing the issues, causes and situation and is really taking action against the cause? No, thats not existing.
