Thermal Power Plant Posits Ecosystem in Sunderbans At Stake

The pollution from coal ash, wasted water, increased shipping and effect of industrial development will destroy one of the few remaining ecologically balanced places of the world - "Sunderbans"

  • A 1,320 MW thermal power plant is going to affect the wildlife and aquatic life of Sunderbans
  • It is a joint venture between India and Bangladesh
  • Bangladesh Government claims there would be inconsiderable effect of the Thermal Plant in Sunderbans

June 26, 2017: The environment around is already deteriorating and nature can always take revenge for our selfishness. The beautiful Sunderbans mangrove forests are the barriers of deadly cyclones of Bay of Bengal. But the plan of 1,320 MW thermal plant just 14 km away from South Bangladesh, is a big threat to this UNESCO heritage site. It consists of rich bird conservation areas and wildlife sanctuaries. As per the scientists, this thermal power plant is going to affect the wildlife and aquatic life of the region.

Problems of ‘The Fearsome Sunderban’

It is a joint venture between India and Bangladesh, but this joint venture seems to cost lives and damage the already deteriorated environment. The pollution from coal ash, from wastewater, increased shipping and effect of industrial development will destroy one of the few remaining ecologically balanced places of the world.

Water wastage is another problem. Who doesn’t know about the effects of climate change in the world? It is impossible to solve such problem if we keep wasting water the way we are doing in the name of “development”.

But the Bangladesh Government is adamant claiming that there would be hardly any effect on Sunderbans. Being one of the most climate vulnerable countries, it should fear the wrath of nature and side with eco-friendly and renewable resources of energy. Entire world today is witnessing the effects of non-renewable energy sources like thermal power plants. The added cause of worry is that following this decision, many private players have also come in the picture. In a recent case, just 12 km from Sunderbans, a private company has started their project of 565 MW thermal power plant. Be it India or Bangladesh, effects of such activities is bound to be fatal.
