The nuclear plant disaster at Chernobyl in Ukraine resulted in the evacuation of more than 100,000 people from a 1,000 sq mile exclusion zone due to high levels of radiation. Besides those affected by acute radiation poisoning in sealing the plant, an estimated 9,000 to 16,000 people in Europe will suffer shortened life-spans. So, a bad thing, no?
Well, not entirely. An article in the UK magazine, The Conversation, reprinted by the PBS Newshour, says “life is now thriving around Chernobyl. Populations of many plant and animal species are actually greater than they were before the disaster.”
The author, Stuart Thompson, a senior lecturer in plant biochemistry at the University of Westminster, appears to be writing about why plants survive radiation better than humans, but he’s actually making a much larger point:
Crucially, the burden brought by radiation at Chernobyl is less severe than the benefits reaped from humans leaving the area. Now essentially one of Europe’s largest nature preserves, the ecosystem supports more life than before, even if each individual cycle of that life lasts a little less.
In a way, the Chernobyl disaster reveals the true extent of our environmental impact on the planet. Harmful as it was, the nuclear accident was far less destructive to the local ecosystem than we were. In driving ourselves away from the area, we have created space for nature to return.
Or to put that in plain English, humanity is not part of nature, and we’re worse for the environment than a nuclear power plant blowing up. Thank you Stuart.
Actually, you’re not alone. Participants at the UN Conference on Environment and Development held in Rio de Janeiro in 1992 produced a plan called “Agenda 21,” which is remarkably similar, minus the radiation disaster. It calls for humanity to be restricted to mega cities surrounded by thousands of square miles of countryside returned to nature.
In effect, the folks at UN’s Division for Sustainable Development (DSD) want all countries to work towards a future where personal property is abolished, including private automobiles, and people are removed from rural areas. I know, it sounds like crazy talk, or a conspiracy, but it’s all there in black and white and you can read the conclusions for yourself. Too much trouble? read this analysis at ZeroHedge.
My point in writing this piece is to show that propaganda in favour of Agenda 21 can be found it you look for it, even when the U.N. plan isn’t mentioned.
This is the future Stuart Thompson is promoting; one without people, without you, or your children, a re-wilding of the world. So, in a way, Chernobyl is in your future.
Agenda 21 is a Chernobyl disaster for the entire world.
