People Joke About ‘Natural Life’ Returning Because ‘We Are The Virus’ With 41 Posts

Not so long ago, photos of unusually clear water in Venice canals went viral. The images showed fish swimming around and there were even reports of swans floating around. People were happy to see nature ‘cleansing itself’. However, while the canals may look beautiful, the mayor’s office in Venice told CNN that the change is not actually due to improved water quality.

“The water now looks clearer because there is less traffic on the canals, allowing the sediment to stay at the bottom,” a spokesman said. “It’s because there is less boat traffic that usually brings sediment to the top of the water’s surface.”

Not only that, but the swans also regularly appear in the canals of Burano, a small island in the greater Venice metropolitan area.

Similarly, people started sharing other false evidence of ‘healing’ nature and since the pandemic has us locked inside our homes, they continued blaming mankind and its dirty everyday life for the initial damage. Some even went as far as to say that ‘we are the virus’. Reduced pollution and the unexpected return of wild animals have been the main narratives, preaching that coronavirus is ‘Earth’s vaccine’.

All of this is a clear case of eco-fascism (the idea that individuals have to sacrifice themselves for the greater good of nature). One could argue that the main reason why nature has been able to blossom in the days during the lockdown is a direct result of reduced activity by corporations, not the actions of individuals. As a result, counter-memes were born, poking fun at the eco-fascists and their blanket statements.
