Chennai: A retired professor has moved the Madras High Court, seeking a direction to demolish the Vedanta group's Sterlite Copper unit in Tuticorin and restore the site to its previous state by re mediating the environment, including the soil and water on Tuesday.

Water pollution affecting the movement of silver carp fish 14.8.2019
Washington: A new study suggests that Chicago's water pollution may be a contributing factor for the lack of upstream movement in silver carp fish. "It's a really toxic soup coming down from the Chicago Area Waterway, but a lot of those chemicals go away near Kankakee. They might degrade or settle out, or the Kankakee River might dilute them. We don't really know what happens, but there's a stark change in water quality at that point. That's right where the invading front stops. And this fish never stops for anything," said Cory Suski, associate professor in the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences and co-author of the study published in the journal of Comparative Biochemistry and Physiology Part D: Genomics and Proteomics. The researchers think the fish stall out at Kankakee because they are responding negatively to compounds in the water flowing downstream from Chicago. They formulated their hypothesis after reading a 2017 water quality report from ...

Experts insist on 'sustainable development, conservation' theory 13.8.2019
Thiruvananthapuram: In view of the huge devastation caused by floods and landslides in various parts of the state, experts have suggested that it is time to replace the pattern of  'Develop recklessly - conserve thoughtlessly' with one of ''Develop sustainably - conserve thoughtfully." A number of quarries are being permitted to operate in Kerala Western Ghats without proper permits and despite staunch opposition from the Gram Sabhas since these adversely affected land and water resources and hurt people's livelihoods and health.  The distance between quarries and areas inhabited by people does not comply with the existing laws. Experts say there is a need for the ruling front to show the political will to strictly implement environment laws. However, there have been recurring instances of the authorities' concerned turning a blind eye to grave violation of environment laws and in some cases are in compliance with violators. It is time for the government to ...
