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.

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 ...

Lights out at Asarwa Lake for two years 10.5.2018 DNA: Top News
The Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation has put together an extensive plan to beautify water bodies especially lakes and Kharicut canal for water conservation. The civic body is in the process of deepening lakes and planting saplings. However, contrary to their efforts, the Asarwa Lake is perishing in darkness due to neglect. The lake was revitalised and opened to public on October 1, 2012. A lakefront with garden space was later developed and the civic body erected 104 light poles to light up the place and make it accessible. To the dismay of the citizens, 100 of those light poles now stand non-functional, without any attention from the civic body for over two years. "We have made several complaints to authorities. After 7pm, it becomes difficult to keep a watch or even take a walk inside. The space is huge and needs proper lights. Joggers and public ask us for solution, but we are helpless as even we don't have any clue of when the lights will be fixed," said one of the security guards at the lake. Last ...
