Animal Takeover

We hear a lot about nuclear power plants and possible accidents and then of nuclear weapons proliferation and possible nuclear winter. Is it possible that we humans are capable of destroying life on this planet and especially is it possible to wipe out the human race? The answer is yes. It is not a fiction and it is quite possible.

A suffocating and sinking thought but the possibility does exist. And if it happens then will the surviving animals take over and start a real animal kingdom? Yes that is possible too. It actually happened in the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant area, Ukraine. Many were killed and maimed and the rest of the people left the area.

I watched a program on this weekend's The Passionate Eye, May 23, 2010. It is very engaging that how animals coped and how radioactive material continues to impact. There is a fascinating story within the story of a cat and her kittens and how she moved from place to place to keep herself (and her kittens) alive. It is an eye opener, if we humans are not careful with our nuclear and other dangerous weapons and industrial toys we may end up being an extinct species. Nature has certain rules and if we constantly violate those rules there are consequences.

We know the most recent disaster of the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico and how catastrophic it has become. There are many other catastrophes looming if we are not careful.

You can read the CBC story here, however the video has not been posted yet.
