Dear friends and MKR

My views are:

The fact that Climate Change, these days, is related to the use of electricity according to Science in general, aught as I see it however not not to be overlooked.

I sense, however, that an effort is being done by the Theosophical Society...

The folloiwng video is one of now several coming from Dan Smolla at the Theosophical Society - Olcott Library....

  Digital world is moving people away from paper. In photography, recent
  studies show that less and less photos are printed. You take a picture
  using your phone and email it or put it up in cloud for your friends and
  anyone else to see and download. Success of e-readers such as Kindle tells
  you that readers are moving away from printed books to reading them on a
  screen. Just now, HP the leader in computer printers, has released figures
  showing the shipment of printers are going down.

  In the past, Theosophical Society and its leaders were trailblazers.
  Internet and communication technology has revolutionized the societal tools
  of communication. One victim is the traditional brick and mortar publishing
  model. The whole world is moving to embrace modern technology in daily

  Modern tools and technology has provided an invaluable tool that theosophy
  can use to make world aware of the theosophical tenets and this in turn can
  transform men and women who are ready for transformation. Modern technology
  has instant world-wide reach when was not there with all the predecessor

  While such a great tool being available for use, theosophical organizations
  are at the trailing edge of using it. The aging leadership who have no clue
  to Internet and its potential can be one of the reasons for tepid interest.
  I hope the leaders are not waiting for orders from the Theosophical
  Mahatmas from the other side of Himalayas. Let us hope they wake up and see
  what they are missing.
