ANNETTE HESLOP AND ENERGY4ALL

Below article by Harvey Tordoff in the United Kingdom provides a brief history and the pathways to, now it is called: Sustainable Energy For All | SEForALL
Initially, its short form used as SE4ALL in 2011, which is also one of the 17 Goals of the United Nations 2030 Agenda for the Sustainable Development Goals. In it, SDG#7 is specifically dedicated to:  
Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all
* * *
At the United Nations Framework on Climate Change conference in Katowice in December 2018 the US, Russia, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait rejected a motion to welcome the latest study.  Australia remained silent.  But despite national Governments taking a strategic stance over what they see as their own short-term interests, progress is made.  I want to tell you about Annette Heslop, who (also in December 2018) was presented with an MBE* from HRH Prince William.  An MBE (Member of the British Empire) is one of the highest awards given to British civilians, and was in recognition of Annette’s contribution to community-owned renewable energy projects.

UDHR AT 70 & UN NGOs

UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS AT 70 & UN NGOs
by 
Harvey TORDOFF

It is 70 years this month since the Universal Declaration of Human Rights became enshrined in the conscience of the world.  In human terms, it is a life-time.  Has it been a life well lived, and can we now sit in our rocking chairs content in the knowledge that we have achieved our goal?
Progress has been made, of which we can be proud, but no-one can believe that there is no more to be done.  There are still far too many places in the world where systematic abuses of these fundamental rights take place in the name of culture, religion and politics.  Wars have continued throughout the last 70 years.

AN INDIAN LAMENT

An Indian Lament by Harvey Tordoff

Poems by:
Harvey TORDOFF

The Premonition
My father told me of a fearful dream.  He said:
“I dreamt I saw the greatest emigration that has yet been through our country.

I looked North and South and East and West and saw nothing but dust.
And I heard a great weeping.
I saw women crying, and my men shot down by the white people.
Oh, my dear children!
You may think it is only a dream,
But I feel that it will come to pass.”

O LANOO! THE SECRET DOCTRINE UNVEILED

Book: O Lanoo!
(A lanoo is a seeker of spiritual truths.)
by Harvey TORDOFF
“…we are spiritual beings in physical bodies; we go through many incarnations on our path to enlightenment. “
The Secret Doctrine by Madame Blavatsky was reviewed in The Book Reader, May/June 1988.
This massive study of man, of nature, of spiritual evolution, of the essence of reality is an astonishing document.”
This quote is remarkable for the reaction of the reviewer; it takes a special kind of book to astonish 100 years after publication. The Secret Doctrine‘ was published simultaneously in London and New York in November 1888.  Blavatsky, a self-educated woman, sub-titled it ‘The Synthesis of  Science, Religion and Philosophy‘.
