Preface by the publisher
Throughout several decades, the world has been facing
a dramatic increase in average temperature, namely global
warming. However, people have just become aware of and
seriously respond to this issue not many years ago.
Thanks to the 2018 latest findings of the Intergovern-
mental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), an intergovern-
mental body of the United Nations, the Special Report on
the impact of temperature rise at 1.5 degree Celsius, many
institutions and individuals around the world are fully
aware that this moment is the final call to save the planet
from the full-blown climate catastrophe.
To date, scientists and researchers have concluded that
the global warming is mainly caused by plastic waste and
the emission of greenhouse gases, specifically the carbon
dioxide. However, no one has realized that there are
underlying significant factors that “exponentially
accelerate” the climate change up to this point.
When you hear the quote “The global warming has
reached this level with a series of more frequent and severe
natural disasters across the world due to heat wave
generated from the overuse of Internet and the overflow
of useless digital data.”, you might be shocked, confused
or curious of its causation. You might even think that this
is totally impossible.
This book might be among the world’s first-ever that
exposes “factors” that speed up the warming crisis, in
addition to other important factors that we have always
knew. The book is well equipped with many research
papers and scientific evidences to support and prove the
idea in a rational and simple manner. You don’t have to
be a scientist to read this book.
Some may wonder why this very book – full of
scientific proofs – is written by Vipassana (Insight) Master
Acharavadee Wongsakon – President of Knowing Buddha
Organization (KBO) – along with several KBO members
from various backgrounds and skills, who have been
rigorously practicing Vipassana meditation in line with
the Buddha’s technique and have come to the sense of
gratitude to the planet that gives us lives and shelters.
Some may even wonder what the real reason this book is
The answer is quite clear and simple… Whoever you
are, whatever you do, and whichever religion or even non-
religion you are practicing, we all need to face the
catastrophe when the time comes. Therefore, this book
urges you to step over these barriers and diferences that
separate us. This is because we are facing the same
imminent danger, which is actually caused by ourselves.
This untold truth is a wisdom gained from rigorous
Vipassana meditation practices for over 20,000 hours,
strictly in line with Buddha’s teaching on the Four
Foundation of Mindfulness, by Master Wongsakon. The
truth can be proved by scientifc explanations.
We hope that the book will successfully raise the
world’s awareness of the true accelerating factors of global
warming, alongside efective solutions to the problem
which fnally leads to surviving the apocalypse.
Please read this book with an open mind, consider
causes and efects without bias, and examine the scientifc
explanations with unprejudiced reasoning. It is not unwise,
as you were born and make a living on Planet Earth, to
consider the facts that have never been told and to help
the world with immediate and correct actions because the
fate of the world lies in your hands.
Eventually, you will understand why changing the
long-standing belief that “the world is fat and square” to
the prevailing belief that “the world is round” was not an
easy task at all.
I have never thought before that I would one day
write a book on “Buddhism and Science”, which happens
to be very crucial to the ongoing climate crisis now a
global emergency. As our planet is sufering from global
warming up to the most dangerous point which has
tremendous efects to all beings, I need to write and reveal
“what I know” which results from rigorous Vipassana
(Insight) practices, in order to help fx the problem.
If you know a truth that is very much important to
the entire humanity, will you just keep it to yourself
because you are so afraid noone will listen to you? Or
just because you think noone will believe it? Or because
you are afraid you might be accused of seeking fame and
fortune? Or because of any other reasons that one can
possibly imagine?… What would you do then?
Any man or woman, however, who stands frm in his/
her principles and is willing to sacrifce for the benefts
of others, would certainly be able to cross these barriers
and step forward to pursue the mission that must be done
and no one dares to do.
Because of this, whoever you are, whether you have
past experiences in Vipassana meditation or not, whatever
religion or non-religion you are practicing, whatever
social status or educational background you have. Now
that the book is already in your hand, please put yourself
at ease and let go of your judgement and prejudices. Read
this book as “a human being” who lives on Planet Earth
with me and other writers. We all are sharing the same
fate being the people who sufer from the efect of
It is understandable that you pick up this book
because you want to relieve your curiosity of what the
“untold truth” is, and would like to know more about
efective solutions to remedy the global warming problem.
I am quite sure you will be fnally aware of and accept
this truth which is frightening and beyond your
expectations once you have fnished it.
In addition to the chapters I wrote, this book is a
collection of research works, academic journals and
reported news on various scientifc and environmental
felds, including releases of minutes of the meetings about
climate change and mutual agreements to remedy the
problem across various governments and international
organizations. Without these documents and information,
people would have lived with ignorance and continued
to make a living taking advantage of their own planet.
Some people would have lived to reap the benefts for
their self-interest without knowing that it contributes to
climate change. Some people would have continued the
lifestyle they are familiar with, thinking global warming
has nothing to do with them.
I would like to thank the scientists, researchers, and
academics from universities in diferent countries, for
instance, University of Hawaii, Stanford University,
University of Zurich etc. Also, I would like to thanks the
press and news agencies, both locally and internationally,
such as, BBC, CNN, National Geographic, The Guardian,
Thairath, ThaiPublica etc. Last but not least, I would like
to thank the international organizations, especially the
Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)
under the United Nations (UN) and the National
Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) which put
the agenda of global warming as their frst priorities. They
literally awaken the world and prepare for the worst of
KBO Earth, a special unit of Knowing Buddha
Organization (KBO) working on environmental issues
especially tackling the global warming problem, consists
of a group of scientists, physicists, engineers, environmental
and energy experts, alongside specialists including
economists. Despite being a Buddhist organization, it
does not mean the KBO has to work only on Buddhist
issues because life is actually ‘Dhamma’ or nature and
surroundings. Dhamma, the Buddha’s teaching, is
human’s love and kindness toward each other and also
other beings living on the same planet. Therefore, to fight
climate change is not only limited to a specific group of
As long as everyone living on the same planet, no
matter where we live or what fields we do specialize in,
we all have to be responsible for the state of the world.
It is not the world that divides us, but we, instead, divide
Although we began our campaign to fght the global
warming a bit late compared to other organizations,
“Better late than never” is still true. We come with great
care, good intention, and deepest gratitude to the world.
Whether you know me or not, as you are reading this
book, I am very pleased to meet you. Even though we
meet at the critical time, it is much better than never
having a chance to meet. Our meeting, through my
writings or whatever channel it is, is very important
because we are going to help save the world together
from the catastrophic climate change and global warming.
Once you have fnished this book and realized that
the truth I revealed makes sense, please step forward and
unite the world to save the planet with correct actions
because noone else can help but only ones who are still
breathin on the earth.

The Unspoken Truth
of Climate Crisis
“…. you are stealing their future in front of their very
This is part of the speech by Greta Thunberg, the
16-year-old Swedish schoolgirl who brought climate
change to global attention once again when she skipped
school to have a sit-in protest in front the Swedish
parliament last year. It was addressed to adults, demanding
them to take serious action on the crisis.
As one of the adults, I felt ashamed of what we have
done to this world. We live our lives enjoying the benefts,
using and exploiting natural resources without conscience
until the climate reaches the critical point. In other words,
its status today is the “last call”, meaning it is our last chance
to reverse it. Climate experts have announced that with an
increase of 2°C from now, the planet’s ecosystems would
be severely disrupted and the damages would be
irreversible …as the temperatures will be too high for all
inhabitants to survive.
What have we done to the Earth?
Although the situation is heading toward catastrophe,
not many people are truly aware of it and ready to work
on the problem. As billions of adults are turning a blind
eye, millions of young children and teens have begun to
take to the streets, voicing their concerns and calling for
immediate actions to protect their future.
We used to expect that the situation would not get
worse if we could reduce the use of plastic and replace it
with green alternatives, reduce carbon emissions, change
and give up some habits. We hoped these actions would
help lower global temperatures. Some countries have also
set out policies to tackle the problem with concrete
strategies. Unfortunately, we have instead seen new
statistics on the rise of temperatures in one place and at
the same time new record low temperatures on the other
side of the world. Extreme weather-related disasters have
hit several places across the world ranging from wildfres
and droughts to storms and foods, all of them reported
as being “the worst” in the history.
Despite eforts to tackle climate change and
collaborations at the international level, the progress has
moved at a snail’s pace. Natural disasters have stuck the
world more frequently with new record-breaking statistics.
So what is the root cause of the problem? Or is there any
other factor that speeds up the crisis? If so, what is it? How
come no one has mentioned about it?
And how come those people who are handling the issue
do not realize what is really happening?
When the answer arrived…
One day, afer reading the news about a severe
disaster in another part of the world, I looked at the nature
in front of me. Suddenly, a piece of knowledge came into
the Knowing Mind…
“The real factor that is accelerating global warming is
the use of the Internet and digital data that is now fooding
Then, the wave of pure energy fowed through my
body and my mind. The whole body was flled with blissful
energy: a condition when there is a confrmation from the
divine energy that this knowledge is true, pure and did not
come from my imagination. It is called `spiritual wisdom’.
It is the state of realization about a subject or a question
through the mind’s pure intuition, not traditional thinking
process that requires intellectual analysis. The wisdom can
be obtained from Dhamma practice which purifes the
mind to the level that it gains wisdom on its own.
What is digital data?
Digital data is information represented by binary code
and processed by electric current, switching in one of two
states; “on” (1) and “of” (0). Digital information is processed
through the sequence of these two numbers, each of
which represents a letter, message, picture and sound. It
is stored in computer devices and data centers. Digital data
in the Internet network includes emails, pictures, videos,
posts, chats on social media platforms such as Twitter,
Instagram, WhatsApp, and everything stored in your
mobile phones and notebooks. All information in
government and private sectors of all felds; economy,
society, politics, entertainment and our personal
information on Google are also digital data.
Digital data has been stored in the atmosphere,
continuously fooding the world. Its volume accumulated
across the servers around the world, not to mention in the
earth’s atmosphere, is so gigantic that some experts called
it `Tsunami of data’. Most of the data is useless or so-called
“data waste”. For instance, one person can have as many as
10,000 emails in his or her mailbox and never deletes any
of them, some people have stored thousands of photos in
their phones but never opened them. Let’s think about 4.5
billion Internet users, how massive is it?
I have no background on neither science nor physics.
I am a business administration graduate with special skills
in design work. I have practiced Vipassana meditation2
according to the Buddha’s teaching in order to purify my
mind from impurities (Greed, Anger, Hatred, Illusion)3 for
many years. Through practice, my mind has come to
realize the mechanisms of the world’s energy current at
the fnest level. With this understanding, I’ve found an
explanation about the relation of the mind and energy,
the issue of energy felds, the frequency range, the earth’s
gravitational force and diferent levels of dimensions.
I am not writing about some kind of mysterious,
complicated or unbelievable subject. But I am going to
share with you an issue based on cause and efect with
scientifc approach that only few people can attain and it
is rarely explained in details. For people who have fxed
ideas and bias, they may not accept what I am going to tell
as they may take it as nonsense or imagination. Anyway,
whatever perceived by a person but not by many others
should not be judged as nonexistent or groundless. If
everyone had stuck to old ideas and ways, refusing to learn
new things, the world would not have seen so many
The knowledge I have perceived is a very important
clue for the world. It is the truth that has never been
revealed; the critical factor that is escalating global
warming to an alarming level, causing severe disasters
nowadays. With this knowledge, we will have a chance to
fnd other solutions to heal the world. What I`d like to ask
from you is to open your mind to absorb the new
information. Eventually, I believe that the we will fnd the
means of survival for the world and for all of us.
Since this knowledge came from spiritual wisdom, I
would like to explain further on how I have perceived it.
This knowledge has been perceived from the
connection of the pure energy current of the spiritual or
transcendental world (Lokuttara-Dhamma).4 As my mind
is the energy current and my body is where the mind
dwells, when my mind has been purifed from impurities
(Greed, Anger, Hatred, Illusion)3, it is in the same energy
current as the transcendental world which is the Good
Force. In Buddhism, this also means the current of the
Triple Gem.5 Being in the same frequency on the same
linear, the two energy currents became connected. This is
how my mind has attained the truth which exists in the
world and the universe, and it is called `spiritual wisdom’.
It is diferent from the intellectual knowledge that requires
the collection of data, calculation and research, most of
which are blended with the researcher’s personal
experiences, beliefs and values. In short, the knowledge
from spiritual wisdom comes from pure energy, it is not
tainted by any bias or delusion. Due to this fnest quality,
it can access the Ultimate Truth.
How did I attain this knowledge?
Although this is not a religious book, I have to explain
some basic fundamentals of Vipassana meditation practice
from which the book is originated.
I have been practicing Vipassana meditation for over
20,000 hours and established Techo Vipassana Meditation
Practice Group, providing Vipassana meditation training
based on the Four Foundations of Mindfulness taught by
the Buddha. The principle of the practice is to be mindful
in four aspects namely; mindfulness of body, mindfulness
of feelings, mindfulness of consciousness and mindfulness
of Dhamma. It aims to destroy impurities (Greed, Anger,
Hatred, Illusion)3 in the mind through persistence,
consciousness, and neutrality. During the practice, the
meditators’ mind must remain still, not swayed by
whatever comes to the body and mind.
The key technique is to ignite the fre element in the
body to burn down impurities3 within the mind. Through
this powerful technique, my mind has become purifed
and attained spiritual insight gradually afer over 10,000
hours of practice. Finally, my mind has learned about the
truth of the earth’s energy in such a way that I could never
Since the practice is a scientifc approach leading to a
clear knowledge in the law of energy at the Ultimate Truth
level, I need to explain further for better understanding
of the relation between fne energy and climate change.
The Buddha is greater than scientists as he taught over
2,500 years ago that the whole world is the manifestation
of energy currents. It constantly changes. He talked about
“kalapa” a fne, invisible energy unit which scientists later
discovered and named it ‘atom’.
Scientists say that energy never vanishes, it only
changes its form. For instance, water vaporizes into steam,
soil turns into stone or ash. Science describes matter and
energy as the Four Elements, namely; earth, water, air and
fre. But the Buddha identifed matter in this world in fner
forms consisting of Six Elements which include earth,
water, air, fre, space and consciousness. The space element
is internal space between the other elements. Consciousness
is the mind or the soul. And all living creatures are made
of these six elements.
Human is part of the energy current
Saying that a human body has the fre element or is
the energy current, most people may be confused as they
do not understand how we can have the fre element in
our body, we are not electrical appliances. However, that
is the knowledge based on Assuming Truth or the visible
truth. In fact, there are many levels of truth. Humans may
die from electrical shock if they stand on the wet ground
when a short circuit occurs. It proves the existence of fre
element in human body. Another amazing fact is that 70%
(three-fourth) of the earth’s surface is covered with water
whereas the remaining 30% (one-fourth) is land or earth;
the same proportion as a human body’s composition. For
a human, the earth element is the solid parts of the body
such as fesh and bone, and water element is the liquid
parts in the body. For this reason, humans are part of
nature. Unfortunately, they always separate themselves
How did the Buddha know this truth?
The Buddha knew the law of energy when he reached
enlightenment. Attaining the highest level of spiritual
wisdom, he realized the truth in his mind and also the
truth about the earth’s energy system which originates
everything. Nevertheless, his disciples and followers who
also attained enlightenment could not reach that level of
realization because their level of perfections, obtained
through countless eons of mental, physical and spiritual
training, were not the same level as the Buddha.
A human’s body is made up of earth, water, air and fre
elements. Having consciousness or the mind that is the
most powerful energy in the form of fnest element, a
physical body becomes a human being capable of thinking,
speaking and doing anything. Without the mind element,
the body is just a corpse. Even so, scientists only mention
about the Four Elements, not mind and space. This issue
is very critical for what I am going to elaborate now.
We hardly fnd an explanation on humanity in the
energy perspective. Therefore, most people especially
Westerners think of the mind as something mysterious or
even nonsense. That means humans are denying their
existence. When asked “Where is the mind?”, most people
are confused. Some may point at their chest which is not
quite correct. That is actually the location of an organ
called “heart”. All the organs in the body can function only
when having the mind/soul in the body. When a person
dies, his mind leaves the body and moves to another realm
accordingly to its former deeds that the person had done
and accumulated in his subconscious mind.
From neuroscience perspectives, a human body is
activated by nervous system, but the nerves are mere fesh
which must be driven by mind energy. The nerves and the
other organs can function only with the soul in the body.
When the mind leaves the body, all the bodily functions
cease. There are cases in which the deceased sufered no
pain or illness but suddenly died. While modern medicine
concluded it was from heart failure, it was actually a sudden
expiration of life. When the soul departs the body, all the
Medical science ofen explains the symptoms as the
cause of illness, whereas Buddhism explains the illness
from its cause. In this case, the cause is the soul/mind that
brings life into a body, but science ignores the mind
because its energy is so fne no machine can detect its
vibration. So we hear the scientifc explanation based on
the functions of diferent systems in the body, not from
the energy perspective.
Feelings that occur in the nervous system are actually
physical sensations, not consciousness. Human’s
consciousness such as remorse or good feelings come from
the mind’s sense of morality. This is the proof of the
existence of mind/soul.
Therefore, to answer the question “Where is the
mind?”, we can say that the mind is in the body from head
to toe. It is in every part in the body that has sensations.
Indeed, the mind is the most powerful energy but always
Based on the principle of Techo Vipassana meditation
practice which uses the fre element in the body to destroy
impurities3 in the mind, not real fre to burn the body, the
mind will access the fre element in the body and can
realize the dynamics of energy current because it is also a
form of fne energy itself. As it undergoes purifcation,
the mind will have an insight into the truth of everything
on earth at the energy level. This is the result of the practice
which is diferent from other meditation techniques.
In Buddhism, those who have reached the highest level
of enlightenment are called “Arahant”, meaning they have
uprooted all impurities within their minds and are
completely liberated from the cycle of sufering or from
the earth’s gravitational force. When they die, their original
minds remain pure energy in the state of nirvana6.
Earth’s gravitational wave comprises the magnetic feld
which has the force to pull all matter and energy – coarse
or fne – to get trapped in its energy web. Despite various
transformations of these matters and energy, as long as
they have weight and are not neutralized energywise,
they will be stuck in this cycle eternally. In Dhamma
perspective, this cycle is called “Samsara” which means the
pathetic, endless cycle.
Buddha discovered the way to free the mind from the
cycle through Anapanasati meditation7 and the Four
Foundations of Mindfulness practice. Through the
practice, the mind will be in neutrality, not clinging to any
positive or negative currents or conditions. Positive
condition is the condition of happiness which causes
emotional attachment whereas negative condition causes
i, leading to clinging mind. When the mind
achieves complete neutrality, it will not be held by any
pulling force in the magnetic feld. It becomes so light that
it rises above the earth’s gravitational force and is freed
from the cycle of sufering.
The Buddha’s discovery is truly scientifc. Actually, it
is similar to the launch of a spaceship. Afer passing
through the friction in atmospheric layers, the spaceship
will escape Earth’s gravity and become weightless. In
meditation practice, the mind must be stabilized,
determined, and unwavering in order to stay neutral and
soar above the gravity and the magnetic feld. The reason
that people who do not practice Vipassana meditation
cannot neutralize their mind is because their mind is
controlled by impurities3, manipulating them to react to
all positive and negative currents (feelings).
For this reason, it seems that there is always a fght
between the Good Force and the Dark Force in one’s mind.
When a person wants to do something good, the Dark
Force from the impurities3 in his mind will obstruct him
while the Good Force will try to fght against it.
Being controlled by the impurities3, the mind will
become dull and cannot realize the truth. That is why most
people cannot answer such a simple question like “Where
is the mind?”.
In fact, I do not mean to write about the Dark Force
and the Good Force which seem to relate with the flm Star
Wars. I just have to mention about it as all these issues are
related to each other. The plot of the Star Wars is actually
derived from Buddhist teaching. Good Force and Dark
Force that I mention here is the key to the issue of energy
level. “Force” in this context means the forceful energy
which is invisible but we can feel its existence just like when
we realize the fght between the dark side and bright side
in our mind at the time we have to decide whether to follow
our conscience or continue a wrongdoing.
Having mentioned about the “Force”, I would like to
bring up the Buddha’s teaching about truth which explains
the difference of matter and energy. He identified truth in
three levels, namely;
1. Assuming Truth
It is truth that is visible and named for common
understanding such as “water” in English and “mizu” in
Japanese. These two words are assumed names, they are
different but mean the same thing. Visible and touchable
things such as water, fre, stone, soil, wood, car and
appliances are coarse matter and energy.
2. Conventional Truth
It is truth at a fner level. This is the reality at the
conventional level until its true composition is broken
down. When scientists had broken down the composition
of water, they found the liquid is the combination of two
types of molecules; hydrogen and oxygen and its chemical
formula is H2O. Without this knowledge, we would have
still believed in what we see; that water is just water and
always water from the beginning.
3. Ultimate Truth
It is the truth at the energy level.
After having realized the truth about energy, I came
to understand the issue of rebirth and the four stages of
enlightenment in scientific language. The explanation is
based on gas density in each the earth’s atmospheres. I also
have a clear understanding in the frequency range of
matter and energy which affects the mind, the energy field,
the dimension of time and existence of realms in different
dimensions, the vibrations and many others. All have been
explained in one of my Dhamma books. As of now, my
mind has realized the truth about the accelerating factors
in global warming; the Internet and digital data that are
swamping the world.
Based on the Ultimate Truth, digital data is fne energy
created from electric current that has become foreign
substance in the planet’s energy system. Its gigantic volume
can be compared to a Tsunami wave, distorting the natural
energy. It is similar to a drop of poison in clear water. We
still see the water is clear. Only afer we drink it do we fnd
it poisonous. This is how the massive volume of digital
data worsens the impacts of climate change, especially the
water as Earth comprises three portions of it is water. It
can be clearly seen from the polar ice melting at much
faster rate than before and the increasing number of
Since digital data accelerates the warming, Internet
service providers have to set up their data centers in deep
northern hemisphere where the cold climate can maintain
the data centers, and minimize electricity consumption.
If the cooling system breaks down, the data will be affected.
Likewise, if smartphones and computer devices store huge
amount of data, they heat up rapidly particularly in hot
weather. We can say that this massive volume of digital
data has been created by the Internet that allows the world
population to use and keep both useful and useless data
without realizing its effects.
The Knowing Mind has revealed to me also that
humans are destroying their main arteries because what
they are streaming into the atmosphere is foreign
poisonous substance, damaging the natural quality of fine
energy current. This foreign poisonous substance is so fine
it erodes and distorts the original qualities of the earth,
water, air and free elements until they are disfigured. The
results are the ongoing erratic weather patterns and
disruptions as seen today.
It is undeniable that visible foreign substances in the
form of coarse energy such as plastic bags, greenhouse
gases or other poisonous substances have caused climate
change and greenhouse effect. However, damages from
these things take longer time to see because they are coarse
substances and do not merge with the fine energy. Humans
still have a chance to fix their mistake such as setting up
campaigns to reduce plastic consumption and carbon
For decades, we have heralded plastic as the wonderful
innovation that grants us convenience in everyday life. We
surround ourselves with all things plastic. Although
research has shown that the synthetic material takes
hundreds of years to disintegrate and cause the greenhouse
effect, people are yet to be fully aware of the seriousness
of the situation until whales and seabirds were found dead
tragically with hundreds of plastic bags, plastic items and
straws in their stomach. Pictures of massive plastic trash
piling up as garbage mountains all over the world are
showing us the damage from this foreign substance.
And even though these materials are found to be the
main culprit, we have seen their impacts on the climate in
a gradual manner. Sometimes we have experienced
severe disasters then later things seemed to be normal.
We believed that the situation would not get worse.
However, after the world has completely entered into the
Internet era, with the total of 4.5 billion users, can we
imagine how much data is being streamed into the
atmosphere every minute day and night? How many videos
are uploaded to YouTube? How many chats go through
WhatsApp? How many emails are sent? How many selfes
are taken and stored?
The `Tsunami of data’ has become foreign substance
in the invisible fine energy current and interferes the
energy wave in the earth’s atmosphere. As a result, the basic
elements of everything; earth, water, air and free are
distorted. This is why we are facing climate crisis. Moreover,
the transmission of data between stations requires
database backup, for which electricity consumption is in
huge volume in every point the data passes. In following
chapters, there will be facts and detailed information that
will definitely open your eyes to the truth that the crisis
caused by human hands is terrifying beyond words.
Whether it can be healed or not, it depends on all of us.
Here is one latest issue related to climate crisis. Some
countries have recently encountered the PM2.5 dust
particles problem, which was assumed to be caused by the
abnormality of airflow. However, there was no clear
explanation on the actual cause. From my observation, it
resulted from the gigantic magnetic Feld created from
extensive use of the Internet. This powerful magnetic
Feld has blocked the flow of matter and fine energy and
disturbed the airflow until it became stagnant. The
weather turned torrid with high concentration of the dust
particles in the air, affecting people’s health.
Nonetheless, what I said is just an observation as long
as there is no concrete scientific data. But through logical
thinking, it’s worth considering and could be used for
further scientific investigation. In any case, I realized that
this knowledge came to me at this time because the truth
must be revealed to the world. Something must be done
before it’s too late”.
To do something means to tell the whole world that
the Internet is causing great danger and digital data is
speeding up global warming while they are so obsessed it.
This is the age of intense competition to reach the peak
of technological advancement. For me, I really worry that
the kind of peak may not be what the world expect. Apart
from the four basic needs for living, around 4.5 billion
people are depending on the Internet and digital data as
if they were fifth, sixth and seventh necessity of life. They
seek happiness, money, friends, fame, social status and
their presence in social media.
With the most advanced 5G technology, the Internet
of Things is in every facet of our lives. Then someone
suddenly raises his/her hand and says Internet is the villain
that speeds up the global temperature. Apart from boos
and jeers, I could be called crazy. Serious meditators are
usually seen as crazy and anything said by them is also
seen as insane.
At the time I was thinking of how to write this, my
mind became scared of foreign substances, it turned
against unnatural materials. I did not even want to touch
a plastic bottle but would rather drink from a glass bottle.
I did not want to use any soap made from chemical
ingredients. It took me a while to mentally adjust. Anyway,
as I have to live with both natural and artificial things, I
just need to continue with my life.
In October 2018, I decided to launch a campaign to
help heal the world through mega billboards at the
entrance from the expressway to the city. The key message
was aimed at urging people to increase reforestation and
delete useless digital data. Initially, it would say “Using the
Internet and digital data is the major cause in accelerating
global warming. Planting trees and increasing reforestation
and deleting useless digital data can help reduce global
Later, I gathered a team of scientists and experts in
various Felds to conduct research and provide scientific
information including studies from reputable institutes.
After having put all the information together, they obtained
a very clear picture of what I have revealed earlier.
The experts working in this team are scientists,
electrical engineers, and telecom and energy experts. They
spent several months studying the subject thoroughly in
order to prove whether what I said is true or not. The
information that we found is even more terrifying than
what I have learned through the insight.
Even so, to reveal to the whole world the truth poses
a great risk to the team as they are well respected
professionals and well known in their Felds. I decided not
to disclose their real names as I did not want them to fall
into the same destiny as Galileo Galilei, the astronomer
who discovered that Earth was not the center of the
Universe; it was Earth that revolved around the Sun. That
discovery brought him into conflict with the Church, put
him under house arrest for nine years. As for me, I do not
have a high social status to maintain, only a Dhamma
status. Therefore, I have nothing to fear.
You may find that some chapters in this book are quite
scientific. But please do not feel discouraged, just read with
an open mind and you will see the truth. This is a matter
of life and death. Act as a detective who investigates every
single clue, then gathers all information before concluding
whether the “The Unspoken Truth of Climate Crisis” is
real or not. In the middle and last chapters, I have added
more information and concluded on how we should move
In any case, I assure you that you can still live with the
Internet and do not have to return to the primitive way of
living. We have come too far. What we really need is
genuine determination to tackle the problem together
either by making small adjustments or serious changes in
everyday life. It depends on each person’s dedication.
Everything must start with understanding. I decided
to write this book to help the world in good faith. I do not
want you to blindly believe. I follow the Buddha’s teaching.
He taught people to develop faith based on logical thinking,
not from listening to someone’s words or through
traditional beliefs. When you hear something reasonable
and believe in it, you have faith. Faith has great power to
bring wonderful changes to the world.
Our world is in dire straits. If we do not act now, all of
us, our children and the next generation including all
creatures will face utmost suffering from the scorching
heat and devastating climate conditions. And when the
final day comes, all hopes, wishes and passions will mean
nothing. Every creature Earth will only struggle for their
This awful situation is caused by humans, either from
ignorance or blindness. We have been reaping so many
benefits from technological innovation, the same way we
used to be at the arrival of plastic era. Today we still have
a chance to help reverse the impact to the level that
humans and animals can continue to live peacefully. Afar
all, what we need is faith and loving-kindness for each
As one of the Internet users, I am also guilty for
contributing to this crisis. Today I have an opportunity to
fix my mistake by revealing this knowledge to you. What
I ask from you is an open mind without bias so that we can
join forces to solve the problem that is caused by all of us.
We are the world and the world is us.
The survival of the world is in our hands.
Comparing this to the innovation of petroleum
Comparing this to the innovation of petroleum
technology or the progress of plastic production, we can
see the differences in their similarities.
The similarity is that all of these three things have
brought comfort and convenience to us. Each was or is the
excitement of its time and has brought so much advances
to the world and yet are double-edge swords when used
The difference lies in the fact that we see and touch
plastic waste and see its shortcomings easy. Because of this,
the global community is eager to take action to tackle the
problem. Whereas, global warming is largely invisible and
not easily felt as people can easily dismiss it as a natural
phenomenon. It took years for the world to believe it is
The rapid rise of global temperatures caused by the
Internet and excessive digital data storage is admittedly
an even more delicate issue. It is about invisible energy,
untouchable and, therefore, difficult to understand.
There are still many points for further discussion and
arguments. If we still had time to collect, analyze data, and
wait for solid proof that our home is on free and we’re
dying, it would be wonderful. But what if that time would
come after our extinction?
It’s time we must rely on our conscience and survival
instinct, together with available information to decide if
we are pushing the earth to the point of irreversible crisis.
This is not an environmental issue per se, but rather a
critical moral issue that needs our attention immediately.
Dhamma Current and
the Worldly Emotional Current
Master Acharavadee Wongsakon
The previous chapters have clearly explained why the
Internet and digital data are the accelerating factor for
global warming. In this chapter, I will share with you
another aspect which you may never expect to be an impact
on the climate. That is “the emotions sent through social
Emotion is part of mental power classified as the finest
and the most powerful energy as mentioned in the first
chapter because it can drive human flesh which is made
of the Four Elements. When humans are aroused by
emotions and widely spread the emotions through social
media, it affects global temperatures since emotion is
energy current containing the properties of density,
heaviness and heat. It is impure mental power generated
from cooked feelings. Nowadays, harsh criticisms and
comments on posts and stories lead to emotional feedbacks
which will heat up the temperature in the global
Where do emotions come from?
Emotions are generated from feelings that have been
intensified upon contacting with people and the
surroundings through the six sensory sense ( ayatana)
namely; eye, ear, nose, tongue, body, and mind. These are
the doors that let the energy current passing in and out of
one’s mind. When something passes through the senses,
it causes more or less some kinds of feeling. For example,
when the eyes see a beautiful and fragrant flower, the mind
will decide this is good, and will like it. On the other hand,
if the eyes see smelly garbage, the mind will decide that it
is bad and will dislike it.
These normal feelings are not emotions because they
are just characteristics of a human. But when feelings are
escalated, they become emotions. For example, when you
like something and this liking is stronger in your mind, it
becomes ‘passion’, and if it gets more intense, it turns into
‘obsession’. On the other hand, if your ‘dislike’ develops to
‘anger’, it becomes ’emotion’. From anger to hatred, then
hatred to feud, these are different levels of the emotion.
As a human being, whether that person still has
impurities ( kilesa)1 or has attained spiritual enlightenment,
he or she has all kinds of feelings; hot, cold, painful,
miserable, or happy. But the difference is that the feelings
of an enlightened person will not develop into emotions
which lead to attachment and clinging mind.
From the Buddha’s teaching of Vipassana meditation
with the principle of the four foundations of mindfulness,
he said, “Withdraw from satisfaction and dissatisfaction,
therefore place one’s mind to equanimity”. That being said,
the enlightenment or Dhamma practicing does not make
anyone turns into a cold, lifeless robot. When a feeling
occurs, let it arise, exist, and cease by itself. Whenever the
feeling turns into emotion, it will lead to attachment and
clinging mind and then bring about craving and aversion.
Having an emotional attachment means if you like
something, you want it to be with you and stay the same,
but if you do not like it, you want to push it away or you
may develop hatred in your mind that later turns into rage
From this point, an emotion evolves into emotional
attachment. It will transform into heavier energy current
and sink down to subconscious mind ( sankhara) where all
emotional impurities are accumulated. As a result, when
you feel so angry with someone and try to forget about it.
Then one day while you are enjoying yourself and letting
the mind wander, suddenly the mind comes up with the
thought of that person who hurt you, immediately the pain
returns. This means anger does not disappear, it is just
hidden and transformed into a higher-density energy
waiting for the right time to take effect in a different form.
The meaning of ‘transformed’ can be explained
through personal character. For example, some people
have been bullied and suppressed their feelings inside until
they become emotionally repressed, and driven to hurt
themselves. This is the powerful manifestation of
emotional accumulation in subconscious mind.
However, if the mind is free from any cooked feelings,
meaning that when a feeling occurs, the feeling will simply
arise, exist for a while, then cease. This is the law of nature.
To cease is to not foster that feeling into an emotion. The
Buddha taught that all that is subject to arising is subject
to ceasing. For example, when you receive a beautiful
flower bouquet, you see it, feel refreshed and like it, then
you continue with other things, shortly afterward that
liking will cease. The feeling that occurs as positive or
negative energy; liking or disliking, will become neutral.
On the contrary, emotional current is in the state of
negative energy that consists of heat and darkness, it affects
the flow of Earth’s energy, resulting to the imbalance of
the planet’s energy system.
The word, “cooked feeling” is well understood among
Buddhists who practice meditation. Previously, when I had
to explain this word to foreigners, I did not know which
word would describe it best. One day I entered the kitchen,
I saw the cook preparing food by putting the seasonings
and mixing them to the taste she liked. At that moment, I
perceived through the Knowing Mind that “to cook feelings
is similar to cook food”, but instead of food, it is cooking
the feelings. When I told foreigners not to cook their
feelings, it turned out better than I had previously thought
because they immediately understood it. It means not to
add colors or emotions to the stories or things that come
through our senses – just stop at the level of feelings.
Finally, the word that seemed awkward to define in English
has become easy to explain.
From the book, “The Hidden Messages in Water”
written by Dr. Masaru Emoto, a Japanese researcher, he
has revealed the experiment on molecules of water. He
put water in two bottles; one was labeled with the words
“Love and Gratitude” and another with the word “Fool”.
When he took water crystals from both bottles to magnify
under microscope, he found that the water with the words
“Love and Gratitude” formed clear and beautiful crystals,
but the other one with “Fool” yielded an ugly frozen
The result of this experiment shows that emotions
affect the energy current. If humans have positive thinking,
speaking and doing – sharing compassion and love to one
another – it will bring positive energy to our lives and make
the world’s energy purer and more powerful. On the
contrary, negative emotions will contaminate the energy
and raise the earth’s temperature because bad vibes spread
out the heat.
Giving an example of visible truth, if somebody shouts
at you and call you names, you will get angry immediately.
A huge row followed, then perhaps violence, and grudges.
But if you are praised for your actions but you fail to
recognize it, thinking the compliment is for you, your ego
or self will be inflated. You will think of yourself being
“superior than”, “better than” or anything “than” other
people. Whenever something strikes against your ego, your
mind will be in anguish.
Cooked feelings that turn into emotions create ego
and it is a huge problem of humanity. People try to make
up their image or identity that brings about emotional
attachment. Some people even say, “You may kill me, but
you many never insult me.”
I used to talk to a Purple Orchid Tree that normally
does not tolerate the coastal environment. At that time, I
had no knowledge about its nature. Later when I revisited
the place, I found it almost died because it could not
withstand the wind and salt. So, I talked to the tree with
the pleasant words.
“Miss Purple Orchid Tree, can’t you handle the wind
and salt anymore? Please bear with it. I don’t want you to
die. Please stay with me for longer. Hang in there.”
I did not make a V sign to the tree as the young
generation often does because it wasn’t appropriate for
my age. What I did was just talking to that tree every day.
A couple of days later, the tree that almost died came back
to life and grew new leaves as if to let me know that, “Not
yet, not yet, I’m not dead yet.”
I felt delighted that I did not bring her here to die, and
she was still alive. I did not have a magical power, and trees
are not living things with the mind or soul. I believe the
reason for the recovery was the positive energy or soothing
vibes from compassionate mind that connected to the
tree’s energy. When people talk to trees as if they were
humans, they are sending the positive energy toward the
them. As a result, the trees or flowers receive the supportive
strength to get through and produce flowers and fruits.
Now that the world has entered the One World era
with the help of Internet connectivity, tons of useful and
useless information and stories have been constantly
flowing from different social media channels. Our life
stories used to be known among a small circle of people
in a certain area. Any conflict happened was therefore
limited. Now if someone shares his or her story through
social media, a lot of people will know it too. Their
criticisms and comments to that post will trigger
overwhelming emotions until it becomes a public issue.
Massive waves of emotions are hanging in the air.
Some stories may be seen by millions of people,
instead of a few people. How large will the amount of
emotional current sent and accumulated in the atmosphere
be? Some stories are specially created to provoke anger
and hatred. People engaging in those stories or news will
also bring their mind into the emotional trap, disperse
tremendous heat current to the atmosphere. The more
people are trapped, the more their behaviors are changed.
In this wireless era, people have become harsh, typing
aggressive comments that turn into bullying. Some harsh
comments are downright cruel and heartless.
In March 2019, the British Royal Household had asked
the public for kindness in their comments to members of
the royal family. Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, who
was pregnant at the time, had faced heavy online abuse
due to her background and race. There were two camps;
one supporting Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge – the
wife of Prince William, while the other supporting Duchess
of Sussex. Tens of thousands of people in the two groups
reviled back and forth until the Palace had to issue the
statement. Sadly, a lot of people nowadays have become
ruthless and verbally abusive to others without considering
the other person’s feelings, even though those people have
never hurt them.
Here is another example that should give a clear,
tangible picture. When there was news of a Thai actress’
relationship with a millionaire who had just divorced his
wife, also a popular actress. Her FB page was immediately
under attack from the public because she started going out
with him when he was still married and yet denied it. More
than 50,000 comments were posted within days, mostly
rude, many beyond offensive. Outrageous comments
infested with anger and hatred are the free energy current.
I am not surprised why American singer Selena Gomez
had to go on a digital sabbatical during her hospitalization
as negative comments played a huge part in worsening her
mental health which was already at its lowest as a side effect
from her lupus.
On the other hand, when the world saw the photo of
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and South Korean
president Moon Jae-in shaking hands at the demilitarized
zone between the two countries at the inter-Korean
summit in September last year, the positive sentiment was
overwhelming across the world.
I believed almost everyone was happy and full of high
hopes for world peace, and I could feel that the world was
cooler or people at least felt the peaceful energy in their
mind… Whether it is image, words, or sound, they all have
effects on feelings and emotions. They impact every life,
mind, and Earth’s energy system one way or another.
Messages on social media sites are the transmission of
mental power into letters, through which readers can sense
the feelings and emotions, leading to some kind of
reactions. Emotional currents of each person sending into
social media with anger, hatred, craving, ego and self are
negative energies. If we take a look at water molecules taken
from the bottles fed with negative words, we will see how
ugly and distorted they are. Apart from tremendous heat
generated from massive digital data, those colossal waves
of emotions sent out by almost five billion people through
the Internet have added the density to this fine energy.
The vast number of users also provides great income
opportunities for online businesses and transactions,
leading to new innovations and services such as online
shopping. The constant excitement and stimulation from
new apps make us want to have, to be, to see…the list goes
on. Once in this tempting cycle, the mind will be sucked
into it and struggles to leave. A ten-minute research plan
has expanded to 30 minutes, then one hour or two. That
is because the magnetic Feld has more power to attract
users due to the network size and transmission strength.
Every year, the Knowing Buddha Organization
organizes an annual mass meditation event to invite
meditators to jointly meditate and send loving kindness
to the country and all beings. During the time we were
sending out the compassion to the world, we all felt peace
inside our hearts. Our minds were filled with tenderness
and glowing with joy. It was the positive energy coming
from thousands of people. The energies were of gratitude,
love and compassion. Although they cannot be seen,
everyone can feel them. They give us the willpower to live
and motivate us to achieve our goals. They also prove how
much difference a well-intended action can make to the
Compassion can cool down the Earth because it has a
soothing property. Compassion is a powerful fine energy.
Therefore, any places where there is regular chanting,
meditation and sharing compassion, residents in those
areas tend to live in peace as their minds are trained and
cultivated with a certain level of morality. Moreover, the
people and the place will be surrounded by cool energy
But then how many people can retain compassion in
their minds all the time? Especially in this social media
era, there is almost no more privacy. People cook their
feelings when they read stories and watch clips. Some are
fake news provoking unreasonable anger. Some people
may engage in other’s poignant story and compare their
lives to those people, dragging their spirits down too. This
feeling is closely linked with the power of their mind. Now
that the mind is tainted with emotional garbage piling up
every time they get emotionally involved with what they
see on social media. The negative mind, also a type of
energy, then sends out negative thoughts and emotions to
the world. These thoughts and emotions interfere with the
earth’s energy system at the invisible level, causing severe
imbalance. Together with other disturbances, the outcome
is erratic climate patterns across the world.
In the old days, human’s actions influenced by
impurities (kilesa) were not widespread because there was
no channel to share them. But in this harsh world, when
something happens, the public will learn, absorb or even
take part in the same emotional field. Such a deed is a
karma or action that will intertwine all these people.
Therefore, to maintain neutrality and peace in your mind,
you should avoid getting into such an emotional field.
I would like to end this chapter by sharing with you
the method the Buddha used to handle an angry person.
There was a Brahmin who dismissed the Buddha’s
teachings as he had faith in different practice. When his
seven sons and daughters-in-laws listened to the Buddha’s
teachings, they had faith and converted to Buddhism, he
became very angry with the Buddha and went to see the
Prophet at the temple he was residing at the time.
The Brahmin stormed in. Consumed with anger, he
lashed out at the Buddha with all kinds of offensive words
he could think of. The Buddha, however, remained calm
and unruffled by his insults. When he saw the Brahmin
began to get tired, the Buddha asked him a question.
“Brahmin, what’s your purpose of this visit?”
The Brahmin repeated his cursing at the Buddha until
he was out of breath. The Buddha asked him again, “Well,
Brahmin, let me ask you a question. Have you ever had a
visitor at your house?”
“Yes, but what’s your business?” he replied.
The Buddha continued, “Have your guests brought you
foods or gifs?”
“But if you don’t want the foods or gifs, who will have
“Obviously, the person who brought them.”
“Now then, you’re my guest and you’re bringing me
the gif of anger. I won’t take it. Therefore, those rude words
belong to you.”
The Brahmin was intrigued by the Buddha’s wisdom
because he had never heard such a thing before. As the
Brahmin had a good sense, he asked, “Buddha, where did
you learn not to accept the gif of anger?”
With compassion, the Buddha invited him to sit down
and began teaching him. The Brahmin converted to
Buddhism and vowed to take refuge in The Triple Gem
(in the Buddha, in Dhamma or the Buddha’s teachings,
and in Sangha or community of monks) for life.
Whatever flows in the air, let it be. It will change and
go back to the person who sends it out.
You may want to read more stories like this because it
makes you feel calm. But I cannot tell you more this time
since our main topic is global warming.
Regardless of extreme heat, if we share loving-kindness
to each other, our minds will remain cool and calm. Given
the fact that we all are fellow human beings in the same
suffering from birth, aging, sickness and death, there is no
point to be angry, to hate or to attack each other.
This book is written with loving-kindness and
compassion to help heal the world and everyone. If you
want to read more Dhamma stories, you will find the books’
titles in the last page. Once you read those stories, your
mind will be awake and fled with compassion. Now let’s
move on to the next chapter. And in the final chapter, I
will tell you how we can heal the world.
“In a superhero movie, the
world gets invaded by aliens.
In reality, the world is being
destroyed by humans in which
Before Time is Up
Master Acharavadee Wongsakon
This is the final chapter and it’s not about the end of
the world. It will be, indeed, the beginning of a new chapter
in tackling the climate change problem straight to the
point. I really believe that it will lead to an effective healing
of the world. “0” is the number that has brought us near
the end so I will use “1” as the starting point to suggest the
new path to save the world.
I wish you all join this path. Without much effort, we
can do it together. No need to wait for a hero as all of us
will take part in this rescue mission.
The solutions that I am going to recommend here will
focus on the accelerating factors which have become the
main culprits in place of carbon dioxide and plastic for
which many organizations all over the world are handling
through various programs. Those programs are the right
things to do and need serious cooperation from all parties
for effective outcome.
The Unspoken Truth of Climate Crisis
Today, the main culprits are getting much more
powerful, I suggest that we counteract with the following
1. Reduce the Internet usage, use it with discipline and
in good balance for work and personal life. At the same
time, use it with awareness on its negative impacts.
2. Regularly delete all useless data in all communication
3. Slow down Internet-related innovation and focus
more on necessary and suitable technological development.
Innovation that promotes the natural way of living is better
4. Go back to more natural living.
5. Encourage the whole world to completely go offline
for four hours; 6.00 a.m. – 10.00 a.m. every Sunday
morning, making it `Four Hours of No Wi-Fi’. This will
enable the global energy current to be freed from electric
current through the Internet.
6. Plant more trees and increase reforestation.
7. Chant, practice meditation and share loving-
kindness to each other and the world using the method
guided by your religion or faith. The power of loving-
kindness and compassion will help reduce global
Here are detailed explanations for the measures:
1. Reduce the Internet usage and keep it in good balance.
In the workplace, there is no need to be online all the
time if your work is not required to do so. When using a
smartphone, switch to telephone mode and connect with
the Internet only when necessary. After work, the computer
should be completely shut down, not on standby.
As for organizations and businesses, there should be
a “shutdown” policy for all computers in the office during
lunch break with only one computer on standby. Apart
from saving electric power, this allows the machines to
cool down. When staff come back to work in the afternoon,
they will feel refreshed from the cooler office environment.
At first, they may feel annoyed with the new rule. Anyway,
with continued discipline, they will feel good and have
conscience of responsibility to the earth.
This change does not cause any harm at all, it actually
benefits everyone. If the management and business owners
set out this practice as their policy, it will bring positive
changes. Moreover, it can be done easily with fingertips in
every moment and every day, much easier than organizing
a reforestation activity.
Keep balance when using the Internet during relaxing
If you usually follow all kinds of news; world news or
other people’s stories, scrolling the screen all the time until
the smartphone has become your fourth necessity in life,
it’s time to set a new rule.
In fact, the Internet creates distance among people.
Being closer online makes us far apart in real life. People
constantly stare at the screen until they have no interest
in other things. While staying in one place, their minds go
somewhere else. They spend so much time surfing the Net,
watching other people’s lives, but have no time to take care
of themselves and fulfill their dreams. Family relationship
becomes unhealthy as the members only pay attention to
online matters. In the end, their lives are damaged in every
Therefore, you should cut down your time for social
media and use the Internet with more discipline. For
example, if your work isn’t related to social media, you
should get connected only 3 times a day; i.e. morning,
afternoon and evening or nighttime. Each period should
not last longer than 30 minutes. In case there is something
to follow up, you may extend to 45 minutes. This is called
balance, not addiction. Being addicted to something means
the mind is restless from cravings when it cannot get a
hand on that thing.
During nighttime, you should turn of all common-
nication devices completely, not even leave them on
standby. This cools down the energy current in your house
as well as saves your battery lifespan. Without disturbing
current from outside, you will fnd it easier to be calm and
Take a slower-paced life. We don’t have to stay online
or be available on chat programs around the clock. In the
old days when there was no chat program, we lived
peacefully. When we wanted to talk to someone, we just
made a phone call and went on with other things after the
conversation ended. Now we chat with many groups of
people all the time. Whenever a message comes in, we get
interrupted and lose focus from whatever we are doing.
Have we forgotten the basic telephone system? In fact,
it’s a valuable device that enables us to live a balanced,
comfortable life. Unfortunately, it’s devalued by the
technology that comes with attractive slogan “Max Speed
Unlimited”. At the end, what does this modern technology
give us? Does it really provide a better life? It is time to
rethink what we’ve lost.
– We have less private time.
– Our relationship with people around us becomes
– We lose focus easily while our eyesight turns bad.
– We have less money in our pocket or even go broke
because we are tempted by online shopping.
– We lose creativity and imagination. We become
followers who follow everything except our own dreams.
– We sleep less because we are addicted to social media.
– We have less patience and cannot wait.
– We are more emotional and ready to react and strike
back in any conflict.
– We lose our individuality as we always compare
ourselves with others and eventually, we lose self-esteem.
– Our mind is less grounded because of speed. The
mind that keeps on moving cannot be stable and loses
determination. Thus, we tend to change our mind easily
and become inconsistent. In the end, we don’t know what
the purpose of life is.
– Our overall health declines because of constant
exposure to the magnetic wave and heat wave.
I can go on with these issues with much more details
but that will need another ten pages. For now, I would like
you to recall your life, not too long, just ten years ago. Back
then you had more space and balance than today because
there were not many stimulations and distractions like
However, since you cannot return to life without
technology, you need to make some minor adjustments.
Apart from saving the world, you will get your life back.
Everybody makes mistakes. Even Chamath Palihapitiya,
former vice president for user growth at Facebook
admitted during his talk at Stanford Graduate School for
Business in 2017 that he felt “tremendous guilt” about
several social and health problems he had helped the
“I think we all knew in the back, deep, deep recesses
of our mind, we kind of knew something bad could happen
but I think the way we defined it was not like this. It literally
is a point now where I think we’ve created tools that are
ripping apart the social fabric of how society works. That’s
truly where we are,” he said, adding that the “short-term,
The Unspoken Truth of Climate Crisis
dopamine-driven feedback loops that we have created are
destroying how society works: no civil discourse, no
cooperation, misinformation, mistruth…This is a global
problem.” he also told the audience that, “We’re in a bad
state of affairs right now, in my opinion. It is eroding the
core foundations of how people behave by and between
each other. And I don’t have a good solution. My solution
is that I just don’t use these tools anymore…”
Lastly, he reminded the audience, “Your behaviors.
You don’t realize it, but you are being programmed. It was
unintentional, but now you got to decide how much you’re
going to give up, how much of your intellectual
independence”. Earlier, Sean Parker, Facebook’s founding
president admitted that when he took part in building
Facebook, he never foresaw its growth so rapidly that it
has created great impact to human’s life, saying that it
changes people’s relationship with society and with each
other and it probably interferes with productivity in weird
Parker, who left Facebook in 2005, explained that the
process when building Facebook was to figure out “how
do we consume as much of your time and conscious
attention as possible?”. He said that the inventors – himself
and Mark Zuckerberg understood this consciously and
they did it anyway.
We might have thought that our life would change in
the One World wireless era when our mind can wander
anywhere. The truth is we have become enslaved to the
Internet. But today, with our fingertips, we will ease the
world and also set our mind free.
2. Regularly delete all useless data in all communication
Useless data does not only mean data waste. It covers
all kinds of unused data such as old emails, thousands of
selfe pictures, downloaded videos that are never watched,
daily messages from chat programs. Keeping them in both
office and home computers overload the computers’
memory and also weigh down your mind energy wise. You
should delete them regularly. For instance, you may spend
5 to 10 minutes two days a week to do it. You will find your
mind become clearer and lighter.
Let me show you the research conducted by a statistics
expert in our KBO Earth team. The objective is to study
behavior of the Internet users who delete the digital data
from their devices.
Research Summary the study on mental and
emotional effects of Internet users before and after deleting
their digital data: conducted by Dr. Thitikarn, the author
of Chapter 8.
“The research aims to study the mental and emotional
effects of Internet users before and after they deleted as
much as digital data stored in different devices. The
deletion included emails, photos, videos, data files, all of
which were kept in mobile phones, computers, tablets,

The study showed that from a total of 253 participants;
64% of them has 0 – 3,000 units of data while 36% has 3,001
5,000 units of data. After deleting data for 20 minutes,
participants in group 1 could delete more than 50% of their
total data whereas participants in group 2 could delete 41%
of their total data.
Regarding the effects afterwards, 87.7% of participants
felt their minds were lighter, clearer and content. They
realized they have collected huge amount of data and felt
the necessity to do this regularly. However, 11.5% of
participants did not feel any difference and 0.8% felt their
The study also revealed the need of participants afar
deleting data; 52.2% wanted to travel to nature places such
as mountains, 26.5% wanted to go to the seaside, 5.5%
wanted to visit waterfall and 15.8% did not want to go
anywhere, they would rather stay at home or in some quiet
places, some wanted to visit a temple.”
While it was only a brief and small study, the result
was interesting and has enough ground to believe the
deletion of digital data has positive impacts on our minds
as well as on the energy current in the earth’s atmosphere.
I believe that if you look at the data stored in all of your
communication devices, you will be shocked by what you
Please delete them as they are extremely critical factor
for global climate.
For the business sector, you may review the information
you have and decide what to keep and what to dispose of.
The duration of data storage should be categorized by
period of years according to the importance; such as three
years, five years or ten years. Data of over five years may
be kept as papers in folders or in CDs or USB drives. They
are the mixture of coarse and fine substances, better than
keeping them in the Cloud system where the data centers
have to store and provide backup service 24/7, for which
electric power will be wasted.
If you go through your data and categorize them
according to the importance, you can really help lower the
global temperature and set a good standard of practice for
I used to ask the photo team members of 5000s
Magazine, a bi-lingual bi-monthly magazine about
Buddhism and lifestyle under KBO, how many photos they
have kept. One of them told me that he had tens of
thousands of photos, stored in three hard drives. When
asked why the need that much, he replied, “I didn’t want
to delete them”. This brief conversation reflects what most
people think too…they don’t want to throw away any photos
although they never feel like opening them again. In a way,
what they keep is nothing as they are never really worthy
enough for them to take a look.
On the other side, I have a teenage daughter who also
likes to take selfes. Once in a while, she will choose the
best pictures, copy them in a USB drive, and have them
printed at a photo printing shop. From hundreds of
pictures, she selects fewer than 40 for printing. This is just
like the days when we still used a film camera. After that,
she deletes unused pictures and puts those beautifully
printed ones in an album, with few notes to describe where
they were taken. Whenever she showed me the album,
there were warm and happy moments as I could feel the
soft touch of the printed pictures and I could take my time
looking at each of them slowly and joyfully…
How long have we lost those happy moments? Modern
technology has taken the gentleness away from our life.
Our everyday life is in a rush; rush to see, rush to go, rush
to enjoy something new. We have no time for something
truly worthy, no time to see special pictures that we
struggled to capture on the trip to that faraway land, and
no time to stay in the particular moment that we want to
keep in memory for as long as possible.
People these days keep their memories in the
smartphone’s tiny chip and store them in the air. Many
valuable things in life have been disappeared gradually,
leaving us with a slogan of modern technology like “fast,
strong and unlimited”.
Please delete them. Deleting your data means you
really help relieve the global warming crisis. Choose your
favorite pictures. Take your time of from the smartphone
and get a photo album. Then slowly put the pictures in the
album. Whenever you want to recall those beautiful
memories, you just grab the album to look at them. In this
manner, you will not absorb heat from the communication
device. If you feel like sharing them online, just post a page
from the album. Do not share all of them through the air
again. You have been sharing your personal information
with the world for too long and it should be enough by
now. It is time to keep your personal life personal. Facebook
is not a private space, it’s a public space.
These are just brief examples. In fact, this topic can be
made into another book. For now, I would like to leave it
to you to imagine how you want to handle your massive
volume of data.
If you cannot let go of your selfe pictures or videos
that you’ve downloaded but never watch, your mind will
be weighed down and the temperatures will be increased.
If you are impressed with some posts or messages, you
may collect and print them on papers, from which you
can read whenever you want. At the same time, you should
clear up the space in your Cloud storage or hard drive. By
clearing up your online life and data storage, your mind
will be uplifted as you have done something good to the
3. Slow down Internet-related innovation and focus more
on necessary and suitable technological development.
Innovation on natural way of living should be
promoted. When humans separate themselves from
nature, they divert from basic principle of life. This is why
we see drastic changes in every level. If businesses care
about nature, they shouldn’t develop anything unnatural.
Otherwise, they have to pay back later; the high profitability
they expect will be used for compensation caused by
For instance, using robots to replace human workforce
in order to increase businesses’ profitability has immediately
resulted in unemployment. Tens of thousands of people
are unemployed and new graduates can hardly find a job.
The decline of purchasing power causes business to suffer
as well. In short, the digital disruption leads to instability
or conflict of interest in overall society.
In another example, whenever I need to contact a
credit card call center, I feel very uncomfortable as it is
quite difficult to get hold of a human. I have to press several
numbers to confirm all information and listen to the
recorded messages over and over while waiting for several
minutes. That’s because they don’t have sufficient number
of staff to handle the calls. There were times I decided to
hang up as I had no time to wait that long.
As customer base is growing, companies decide to
reduce staff employment and bring in automatic services.
While that creates an image of superior services, they also
make their customers’ lives more difficult. The system
spoils their relationship with customers. There’s nothing
wrong with applying technology in business, it just needs
to be appropriate and does not destroy human nature. As
humans, we want to communicate with humans, not robots
or recorders. This kind of development has turned what
otherwise would have been an impressive customer service
into a cold, impersonal business talk.
Companies are trying to attract revenues by stimulating
wants and needs endlessly. New innovation can create
excitement when it comes to the scene, but in no time
another novelty will be coming in. At the end, there is no
winner, just loser. That is to say, all of us are losers. We lose
to the impurities2 in the mind of our fellow human beings,
and finally, the world loses to artificial things and insatiable
demand of humans until its climate reaches a dreadful
4. Go back to more natural living.
In my family, we have a rule for the children; they have
to stay offline starting from 6.00 p.m. on Friday until 4.00
p.m. on Saturday. It works very well for us. At the beginning,
they were quite anxious, but they managed to adapt after
some time. When the Internet-free hours start, they stop
watching videos and online chat with friends and turn to
other activities such as doing homework, playing sports,
reading books, or watching movies from TV. When doing
homework, they can concentrate very well, having full
focus as they have no worry about chatting with friends.
On Saturday, they spend time with the family, play
sports, exercise and fully rest. Sometimes they go out to
join public charity activities or travel to provinces. This
way, the family bond has been strengthened as we get to
spend time together. This is the true meaning of going
back to nature.
Despite conveniences, the Internet negatively affects
our life when overused. Being separated from nature
destroys the fundamental structure of our life as we
become obsessed with illusive world.
Natural living does not only mean we have to plant
trees and grow vegetables. Everything should follow its
course of nature. For example, we should watch movies
from TV not from smartphone, buy products from the
market, listen to the music from audio device and exercise
in the park.
The fast and modern way of living has brought about
imbalance in demand and supply. An over demand from
one side has impact on overall fundamental business
system and cycle.
For instance, movies production nowadays is so well
advanced in its digital development that its charm is
stripped of. With super high-definition screen technology,
the images have lost the depth and the softness, unlike
those seen in old movies. But humans needs tenderness.
Another example is shopping. If we want to do the
shopping, we should have a balanced life by going to the
markets or department stores where we can feel and touch
the merchandises. There is a saying “If we want to buy fsh,
we have to go to the fish market”. It means that we have to
go see and smell whether the fish is fresh or not. People
don’t go to the market anymore, they just look at the
pictures and buy online. The more they look at products
online, the more they are tempted and eventually lose
When we want to read a book, we should grab a real
book. Apart from saving our eyesight, it helps retain good
memory. Moreover, we can review it anytime without
absorbing heat and the magnetic wave to our body.
Reading a digital book takes a toll on your memory in the
long term as the heat has a negative effect to the brain.
The way of life that depends too much on fast and
competitive innovations without taking into account its
disadvantages and abandons the essential roots of our
nature has led us to new problems. Natural living means
giving; giving a chance to ourselves, to others and finally
to the earth to remain balanced.
We have ignored the natural way of living far too long,
long enough that if Earth could cry, she would cry and
grieve for the blindness of humans. “Don’t you see what’s
happening to me? What have you done to me? How could
you ignore your own roots? Come back…Come back…
Come back to me…I’m still waiting for you….”
At this point, I’ve heard the raspy voice of Rose, the
leading character in the film Titanic. When she was waking
from the slumber on the wooden piece after the shipwreck,
she found that her lover, Jack (played by Leonardo
DiCaprio), was gone forever. At first, Rose lost her hope to
live, succumbing to the pain of losing the love of her life
but she suddenly remembered her promise to Jack that
she would not give up. She started crying, “Come back”
again and again…
Please promise me that when you finish reading this
chapter and feel like watching the Titanic again, you will
put down your smartphone and watch it on the TV so you
can see the Titanic sinking on a big screen. Like the Titanic,
the world is sinking slowly. Are we going to help or just let
it go down?
5. Encourage the whole world to completely turn of the
Internet for four hours; 6.00 a.m. – 10.00 a.m. every
Sunday morning, making it `Four Hours of No Wi-Fi’.
This will enable the earth’s energy current to be freed
from electric current in the Internet. For humans, we have
one day in a week to relax. We should, likewise, let the
Internet take a break from receiving and transmitting the
heat in order to help restore the energy current.
In my family, Sunday morning is time to be with
nature. After waking up, we have breakfast, spend time
together, walk on the grass or exercise. Don’t allow any
stranger coming to our life through social media. We may
watch a movie on TV or read newspapers, books or clean
up the house. We let the data center, communication
devices, batteries, computers and the Internet take a rest.
I believe this practice can really help decrease the global
There was one study in 2014 on the impact of World
Wildlife Fund’s annual Earth Hour Campaign which
encourages people to turn of their lights for one hour to
raise awareness about the importance of ecosystems and
climate change. The researchers compiled 274
measurements of observed changes in electricity demand
caused by Earth Hour in ten countries, spanning six years,
and found that the events reduced electricity consumption
on average of 4%. However, at this point, taking action only
once every 365 days isn’t enough. We must do it every
Sunday all year round. If anyone can further reduce the
use of Internet, that is to stop using it for one whole day
or until 6.00 p.m., it will be an excellent move and could
inspire many others.
We are talking about encouraging at least four billion
Internet users around the world to turn of the Internet
connection for the suggested period. Just imagine that if
we can make it, how much microwave-induced heat from
all communication devices that is grilling the earth can be
Our KBO Earth head and a former electrical engineer
with decades of experiences, Lieutenant Pitak has
described how it works, as follows:
“When our mobile phone is turned of, it means we
actually slow down the working process at the data centers
(which are never turned of). Whenever we send a message
to someone, it the signal travels through the air to reach
the base station that needs over thousands of times of
power to find the recipient’s location somewhere in the
world. It means it has to transmit the data to all directions
and as far as it can, while each base station can cover up
to 5-10 km. For a very long distance, the transmission may
have to go through fiber optics that also requires high
This is only for an outgoing message. In case there is
a reply from the recipient, the process will be the same. If
it is multiplied by billions of people, how much power
supply will be needed? By turning of a mobile phone, we
can save tremendous amount of energy consumption. We
actually help relieve the global climate crisis, much more
than turning of a light bulb at home. If my explanation is
understandable to you, I am sure you will immediately
turn of your mobile phone and you can say that “I’ve really
helped heal the world”.
6. Plant more trees and increase reforestation.
We’ve learned since we were young that trees release
oxygen during daytime and carbon dioxide during
nighttime. That’s why it’s shady and cool under a tree in
daytime. Trees can really help reduce temperatures.
However, there is still a limit. There have been numerous
studies about a tree’s capacity to store carbon dioxide. In
a tree’s lifetime, it can absorb carbon dioxide in total
volume of 1-1.7 tons carbon3. A forest in an area of
approximately 0.395 acre can absorb carbon dioxide not
more than 6.09 tons per year.
Here’s a clearer comparison; a vehicle that has gasoline
consumption rate at 15 km. per liter or uses gasohol at an
equivalent rate, when traveling for 417.20 km., will release
carbon dioxide in the amount that a tree uses for one whole
year4. If we keep using fossil fuels and continue to release
carbon dioxide, reforestation can only help to a certain
extent. Nevertheless, trees provide us with many other
benefits as follows:
· Planting trees around the house helps reduce 2-4°C
as they provide shades and can protect the house from
direct sunlight. Trees provide moisture in the soil and the
air around the house, cooling of the interior. In this way,
it significantly helps reduce power consumption.
· A tree can trap hazardous substances and particles
such as smoke, dust and toxic gases including carbon
monoxide, sulfur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide up to 1.4
kg. per year.
· A tree releases oxygen up to 200,000 250,000
liters per year. This volume can supply two persons in a
year5. In other words, it is the biggest oxygen supply on
With these reasons, almost every country places
importance on decreasing carbon emission in parallel with
increasing carbon capture and storage, supported by
various measures to promote, enforce and control.
In conclusion, greenhouse gases reduction cannot be
achieved with one measure alone. As a reference, bamboo
trees can greatly cool down the surrounding air. Their
flexible trunks and height, helps distribute coolness into
the air. If you visit the Arashiyama Bamboo Grove in Kyoto,
Japan, you will see that the area is naturally kept at cool
temperatures even in the summer.
Planting trees is symbolic of nature conservation. If
you don’t have space for growing trees, at least having a
kind of aquatic plant or a few hanging plants can remind
you to return to natural living.
For organizations or corporations with capacity to do
reforestation, they should take active participation in the
activity. Businesses which benefit the most from the
Internet should show the sense of responsibility by
supporting and providing budget to help relieve the crisis.
They should not leave it to the governments and affected
people. Telecom and IT businesses have made enormous
benefits at the expense of millions of poor people suffering
from too many disasters, they should pay serious attention
in healing the world with concrete plan and take action
7. Chant, practice meditation and share loving-kindness
to cool down the world.
If this was a Dhamma book, I would write about it in
full details. But for this book, I will only make brief
If you can live your life in accordance with the ethical
code of your religion/faith perfectly, you are very unlikely
to harm yourself and others in any way. When you’re
careful not to lose your temper with others intentionally
or unintentionally, sending out loving-kindness to others,
you’re cooling your mind. Always remember that the mind
is the most powerful energy.
The Buddha taught that “Give loving-kindness to those
burned with free to cool them down”. The world is suffering
from the free of lust, delusion, hatred and all kinds of
innovations, all of them sharing the same property: heat.
To restrain from negative, harmful thinking means to stop
sending out heated and negative energy to the world. This
is the meaning of cooling down the world by loving-
These are my suggested solutions to help heal the
world directly. What I and the KBO Earth team members
wrote in this book is new and unexpected for you. Please
consider it based on reasons so that we can tackle the
problem correctly. All the information in this book has
clearly shown that although we can reduce carbon emission
to 0%, the temperatures will never return to normal. The
world has never needed our unity more than now.
Every religion has its own prayers. Regardless of the
religion, chanting and saying a prayer bring good things
and opportunities to your life as its sound contains positive
vibration, helps calm down the mind. Once your mind is
still and peaceful, extend your loving-kindness to the
Once you follow these suggested solutions, what you
will gain immediately is more time to do your own things.
New opportunities will come into your life. Who knows?
This could take you to the Noble Path and eventually the
spiritual freedom from the cycle of rebirth. If so, “01” will
not only be the code of heat for you, but also the code that
turns around your mind and raises it to higher state.
Wherever we are on this planet, we can connect
through the Internet. This time, I wish the connection
between our minds through Dhamma current and Good
Force will put out the heat from the Dark Force… Most of
all, what you can do right now is to delete all useless digital
data. You have to start from today and follow these seven
measures seriously. This way, there will be hope for the
survival of the planet.
May the power of goodness in the universe protect the
world, awaken all humanity from delusion and ignorance.
Then they will join forces to heal and protect the earth
from all disasters for her to remain home to all beings.
May they live happily and peacefully for as long as possible.
