Yet another Agenda 21 scheme . . .
Radon is an invisible radioactive gas emitted from the ground. It has higher levels in certain parts of the world. In the U.S., the Earth Police Force target home sellers to pay for “radon mitigation.”
This situation puts a whole new meaning to the phrase “Save The Planet” because radon is a naturally occurring gas that comes from the earth.
Why save a planet if you believe it could kill you?! The eco-nuts makes no sense.
Cato Institute, “Should Homeowners Consider Radon a False Alarm?” Good overview and common sense.

1. Move citizens off private land and into high-density urban housing;
2. Create vast spaces inhabited by large carnivores;
3. Reduce traffic congestion and slash fuel use by eliminating cars and creating “walkable” cities;
4. Support chosen private businesses with public funds to be used for “sustainable development;”
5. Make policy decisions that favor the greater good over individuals;
6. Drastically reduce the use of power, water, and anything that creates “carbon pollution;”
7. Use bureaucracies to make sweeping decisions outside of democratic processes;
8. Increase taxes, fees, and regulations; and
9. Implement policies meant to incentivize a reduced population (i.e., “one-child” type laws).
THERE YOU HAVE IT: ANTI-PROPERTY OWNERSHIP.
AS A PROPERTY OWNER, IN OREGON, SELLING A HOME MEANS YOU MUST PAY FOR A RADON REMEDIATION. COST: up to $2,100. Source: Oregonian 2/23/2013.
RADON REMEDIATION = MONEY IN THE GOVERNMENT’S COFFERS:
In 2011, EPA’s enforcement activities in Region 10 resulted in a number of significant environmental benefits, including the long-term cleanup of more than 100 million cubic yards of highly contaminated land and water, an investment of more than $345 million in actions and equipment to reduce pollution and protect the environment; and more than $25 million in civil penalties for non-compliance with environmental laws and regulations. In particular, Region 10’s largest settlements will help reduce the threat of future oil spills in the North Slope’s fragile ecosystem, address human health and ecological risks from widespread, historic mining contamination in North Idaho and eastern Washington, and improve air and water quality in Pacific Northwest communities.
