THE GREATEST ENVIRONMENTALISTS OF ALL TIME


Read the mini-series on the greatest environmentalists of all time 



In the series Greatest Original Environmentalist, ¨the This story starts 2500 years ago, then a young prince in the his search for happiness  left all materialism behind in his search for something he never felt inside his castle.

Entering the modern times and two of the greatest thinkers finally meet with a time span of nearly 2500 years between them both in a spiritual and as science matter. One cannot write a personal history of the largest movement in the history of all times without science of Einstein or the spirituality of Buddha. However, between them three times nominated to the Nobel Peace Prize three times nevertheless, never achieved any* prize. Singlehanded and by nonviolence philosophy Gandhi liberated India and defeated the British Empire; won back a continent so vast and with so many different languages, Kings and queens that it would be not even be possible to do if it today unless there was an extraordinary man, Gandhi.

In the 1970 modern environmentalism started for real  In fact, many names comes to mind that can be regarded as  “great”, however depending on the criteria to determine “greatest” not only “great# would depend on a subjective view upon what is the most important action performed in short or long term perspective.

Arne Næss climbed already in 1950 climbed and lead the expedition first accent, the very technical and climbing outside of the Himalaya´s difficult mountain Tirch Mir 7709 in Pakistan.  During his studies and writing several books on environmental subjects and life philosophy heavily inspired by eastern wisdom hinduism- buddhism- Gandhi´s nonviolence and Dutch philosopher Spinoza view on nature.- Arne developed a modern environmental philosophy called deep ecology. His very first ideas came to Næss during1960´s when he was working at Berkley University. Few know his inspiration happened after experiencing LSD at the time.

  • Gandhi was nominated Nobel Peace Prize 3 times. Nevertheless, never won because of (2nd world war 1939-1945). In my opinion Gandhi deserve the Nobel Peace Prize prize and seen now, seems strange that his work did not get the during his life or after his death. Gandhi in my opinion is one of the most remarkable person ever to walk on Earth. And most people do not realize his achievement. My favorite quote regarding change and the environment and how important to understand that everyone can make a difference. “You must be the change you wish to see in the world” Gandhi

I always try to be positive & have great energy to share. I try hard not to be affected by negative energy from others. I think that life is to short and that I do not have time to be grumpy, its only me that suffers from it and people around me. I believe that the whole universe is inter-connected, always in change and not everlasting. All people needs to develop positive karma, this will help us in the future. We all need to take care of this planet as we are only borrowing for a short time. So let us pass it on in a better condition than when we borrowed it. Remember next time we come around we might be able to borrow it again. I belive strongly that in a time like this we need strong visionary people that view the world as one. Enjoy
