Country lost one-third of its coastline from erosion, gained almost as much: Report 12.8.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
Natural causes such as cyclones and waves, as well as human activities like construction have led to nearly one-third of a large part of India's coastline to be eroded in the last 26 years, but almost an equal area has been added because of new sediment deposits, according to a government report. The National Centre for Coastal Research surveyed 6,031 kilometres of India's 7,517-kilometre coastline from 1990 to 2016, and found that 33 per cent of it has witnessed erosion, most of it along the eastern coast facing the Bay of Bengal, with West Bengal recording the highest erosion. At the same time, 29 per cent of the surveyed coastline saw an accretion, or gain in deposits. "Erosion and accretion are complementary to each other. If the sand and sediments have drifted from one side, it must accumulate somewhere," said M V Ramana Murthy, director of NCCR and one of the authors of the report. The report says that 2,156.43 kilometres of the country's surveyed coastline faced erosion, while 1,941.24 kilometres ...

Sundarbans threatened by 'heedless industrialisation': UN expert 1.8.2018 DNA: Money
The Sundarbans forest, which is the largest contiguous mangrove forest in the world and home to several endangered species, is being threatened by "heedless industrialisation , according to a UN rights expert who called on the Government of Bangladesh to halt the process. Stretching along the Bay of Bengal, the Sundarbans is considered one of the natural wonders of the world. However, despite objections from the World Heritage Committee of the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and the International Union for the Conservation of Nature, the Government of Bangladesh has approved more than 320 industrial projects in the area, including a massive coal-fired power plant. The process bypassed requirements for public participation and an environmental impact assessment. "The accelerating industrialisation of the Sundarbans threatens not only this unique ecosystem which hosts Bengal tigers, Ganges river dolphins and other endangered species but also poses serious risks to the human ...

New power lines might accelerate bustard extinction in Gujarat 8.7.2018 DNA: Money
The thrust towards green energy is having an environmental cost that few had foreseen. The power lines that connect windmills and solar power plants are turning out to be death traps for the critically endangered Great Indian Bustards (GIB) in Gujarat. In the last decade alone, power lines have claimed the lives of about 10-15 GIBs in the GIB-range states of India. If that wasn't enough, the GETCO substation at Bhachunda, where the company plans to put about 15 to 20 power lines, is another potential death trap, claim activists, adding that it is right in the middle of a bustard habitat. Devesh Gadhvi of The Corbett Foundation, an organisation that is working towards GIB conservation, said, "The windmills, by virtue of being green energy, do not require an Environment Impact Assessment (EIA) before being set up, especially outside forest areas. The same happens with the power lines as well.  This means that when such plants are set up in revenue areas, adjacent to the forest areas, which are actually ...
