Will we ever wake up from the illusion of our species’ superiority? Will we ever see the big picture instead of pleasing our insatiable greed and chasing short-time materialistic goals?

Our planet is plagued by wildfires. Huge areas in California, Siberia, and Southern Europe from Italy to Turkey are left to the mercy of this devastating natural force.

Looks like the earth is determined to get itself rid of the parasites – humans. Or is it just a wake-up call for us?

Wildfires in Greece

Greece is among the countries that have endured the most catastrophic wildfires. The locals call it a “biblical catastrophe“. It is estimated that there are over 100 active wildfires happening in the country right now.

The authorities say that extreme heat is the most likely culprit of the natural disaster. Indeed, in Athens, Greece, the temperature reached 113 degrees Fahrenheit (45 degrees Celsius) over the last week. Heat = wildfires. Makes sense, right?

But let’s not jump to conclusions yet. Instead of shifting the blame onto global warming, let’s explore it further.

The area that is the most plagued by uncontrolled wildfires is the island of Euboea (Evia). Its northern part is covered in dense forests. It also has untouched beaches and clear waters, which attracts thousands of tourists from Greece and other countries every summer. This is how the area looked back in 2019:

Euboea: the forest of trees turbines

Now, let’s look at the website of Greece’s Regulatory Authority for Energy. It contains three interesting documents:

  1. 504/2021
  2. 506/2021
  3. 507/2021

It turns out that back in June 2021, the Greek government issued permission for the installation of wind-energy generation facilities in the very area that is now hit by wildfires!

License granted for the electricity production from the wind 34 MW power plant, at the location “BARDAKOS SOULINO”, of Municipal Unit of KIREOS, of the Municipality of Mantoudi – Limni -Agia Anna, of the Regional Unit of Euboea.

Let’s explore another document obtained from diavgeia.gov.gr, the website aimed to promote government transparency. It’s a report from the meeting of Euboea’s municipal authorities that took place on July 21, 2021. (As a matter of fact, I had a hard time finding the report as it seems to be removed from all lists, but the file still exists on the website)

According to the report, the local authorities disagree to place wind turbines in the area.

The city council expresses its complete opposition and disagreement over the three (3) permits 504, 506, and 507 for wind energy facilities in the Municipality of Mantoudi-Limni-Agia Anna.

Two weeks later, the catastrophic wildfire starts on Euboea, hitting these very areas…

I don’t know about you, but I don’t believe in coincidences.

So, will we ever wake up?

As Greek prime minister, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, said,

“We had no loss of human life. … Homes will be rebuilt and over time the forest will grow back.”

Indeed, there was no loss of human life, but there was a loss of trees, animals, and ecosystems. The island of Euboea will never be the same. Immense areas of land are destroyed, and it will take decades to restore the forests. (Even though it seems that restoring them is not a part of the plan)

Will humans ever realize that the Earth is our only home, along with being home to countless other species except for our own? Will we ever stop valuing money over life?

Only when the last tree has been cut down, the last fish been caught, and the last stream poisoned, will we realize we cannot eat money.

Only when the last tree has been cut down, the last fish been caught, and the last stream poisoned, will we realize we cannot eat money.

    I hope you are not implying that in less than 8 weeks wind farm towers were able to be constructed that it was these that were, if not the cause, responsible for further fanning the intensity of the flames?

      No, I’m implying that they are clearing the area to build them. They can’t build them in the forest.

    Hi Anna,
    I love your website!
    Regarding the wildfires in Greece, there is evidence that they are not natural at all but ignited artificially using energy weapons from the sky.
    Debora Tavares a California based truther has invested lots of time and energy exposing the irregularities of californian bush fires, I remember the following unnatural fire traits:
    – Trees burning from the inside out
    – lack of metall remains in the debris of burned down houses since all metall has been melted due to very high cobustion temperatures, the same goes for molten alu-rims of cars … the firefighters have more to tell and of course the vids of Deborah are very informative.
    last but not least and returning to euboea peninsula there a incredible pictures showing a serpentlike fireline that stretches out for miles in the forest hills….these cannot be explained by natural fire procedures…
    looks like someone is using a firebeam igniting the woods from above…

    with much love, Jakko

    I guess it is impossible to prevent jakkoes ( I mean wackoes) from posting on sites like this. From imbeciles like the first poster to idiots like the last poster the world shows us today that there is only a handful of Anna Leminds amongst the 8 thousand million humans (and I do not mean homo “sapiens” nor 8 billion which is 8 to the power of 12) inhabiting this planet today. But by all means Anna, please don’t give up, please keep publishing. One day we “sapiens” will find you and join efforts with you. Cheerio
