Europe’s last primeval forest set to undergo brutal logging

One of Poland’s most commanding and impressive natural sites is the Bialowieza Forest. This is not just any forest; it happens to be Europe’s oldest primeval forest and the last of its type to exist. Spanning nearly 1,000 square miles along the border with Belarus, the forest is home to the largest bison population in Europe, along with countless other species, including lynxes and wolves.

Visitors are able to step back in time and see firsthand exactly the type of forest that once covered most of Europe. It has stood proudly since 8000 BC, and much of it hasn’t been touched by humans since the Ice Age, but now it is facing destruction as a brutal logging campaign got underway on May 25.

A newly passed logging law is undoing thousands of years of nature’s work. The environment ministry will allow loggers to chop down more than 6.4 million cubic feet of wood from the forest’s non-protected areas over the course of the next ten years, despite a massive outcry on a local and global scale.

‘Poland is Dying Under EU Occupation’: Warsaw Should Follow British Suit

Poland has been hindered by EU membership and would have outclassed even Germany had it not joined the European Union, Polish politician Janusz Korwin-Mikke said, adding that if the British decided to exit the EU, Poland should follow suit.

Though admitting that Warsaw has been receiving financial assistance from the EU, Korwin-Mikke, the founder of the libertarian conservative party KORWiN, said that Poland had lost more than it had gained.

“We could live like kings… Our economy was growing 8 percent […] before we entered the EU. Now we are down to 1 percent, sometimes 2. These losses are absolutely terrible,” he complained, adding that “if we had maintained the previous growth rate would have been ahead of Germany.”
Janusz Korwin-Mikke insisted that “Poland is dying under EU occupation” and therefore should leave it.

Moreover, he believes that the the entirety of Europe is dying, people will soon take to the streets and that Europe will plunge into a major crisis before 2018.
