Featured on NPRís All Things Considered, author and environmentalist Andrew Blackwell heralded the beauty of Chernobyl, a man-made disaster, now a wasteland, where he found a shining desolate place that humans had vacated, and now returned to nature.

Part of a Ďlove letter to pollution,í Blackwell discusses his book Visit Sunny Chernobyl, sounding off in poetic language ďParadoxically, perversely, the accident may actually have been good for this environment.Ē

Listen to the nterview with Andrew Blackwell here.

From NPRís website:

ďBecause itís [a] quarantined, radioactive zone, everyone has left a long time ago, and very few people spend any time there,Ē he tells weekends on All Things Considered host Guy Raz. ďYouíve got to go in spring, obviously, and itís just full of trees and birds and insects. And itís sort of become this huge, accidental wilderness preserve.Ē

In a way, nature has taken over.

ďThe birds and the bees and the animals and the wolves are not aware, and/or donít care about radioactive contamination the way we do,Ē Blackwell says. ďThereís nothing like it, and itís an absolutely unique place, and most of it is just flat-out beautiful.Ē

Blackwell observes a synergy between nature and the radioactive contamination: ďSo itís not just a place that has been contaminated with radiation and radioactive particles. They are sort of in it, which is another thing that makes it so incredibly fascinating Ö the ecosystem itself has sort of incorporated that pollution.Ē

Yes, with Fukushima still falling out, we are again witnessing the celebration of harmful and destructive nuclear disastersĖ now salvaged as an environmentalistís ironic, symbolic victory-from-disaster. For all hopes of scaling back the scourge of civilization, Nature seems at peace with nuclear dead zones, if this authorís account is any indication.
