Who killed Lake Karachay in Russia?

Power ‘at any cost’ turned one lake on this planet into a concentrated open-air store for radioactive sediments.

Now, Lake Karachay is not a lake, it is a dead tank.
It is an example of what people can do to their home planet.
It is an example of what goes wrong in the minds and hearts of people.
It is a result of ultimate power-seeking – at any cost.

Who killed Lake Karachay? We all did.
As a species, we self-damage.
As consumers, we buy into battles and support the growth of power.

“Not me!” I hear you say. However, think again. If you support anything that creates a future less than ideal, you are part of the problem. 

Who rules over the fate of your planet home, your family planet?

Are the sort of people who started to kill Lake Karachay  [Western Russian]  in 1951, still wrecking your home? Until we all see the whole planet as our one home and we all become great home-keepers, together, we are living-at-risk; at risk of being homeless and as dead as Lake Karachay.

Getting on well together and caring for the global environment is not just some weird green fancy, it is the route we have to take if we want any chance of perpetual growth. We’ve got thus far as a species and to get further we need a clean healthy planet base.

Lake Karachay was once full of lifeforms which once called it ‘home’  – Planet Earth is presently full of lifeforms calling it home. Let’s wise-up, clean-up and get our act together, TOGETHER.

… and big thanks to the one and only Lucas Wyrsch for alerting World of Water to the present situation over at Lake Karachay.
