Ecstatic Zimbabweans flood Harare to celebrate expected Mugabe downfall 18.11.2017 The Tribune
Harare, November 18 Tens of thousands of Zimbabweans flooded the streets of Harare on Saturday, singing, dancing and hugging soldiers in an extraordinary outpouring of elation at the expected fall of President Robert Mugabe, their leader of the last 37 years. Mugabe, the only ruler Zimbabwe has known since independence from Britain in 1980, has been holed up in his lavish ‘Blue Roof’ compound, from where he has watched support from his Zanu-PF party, the security services and the people evaporate in the wake of a military seizure of power on Wednesday. On the streets of the Capital, Zimbabweans let their emotions run free as they spoke of political and economic change after two decades of repression and deepening hardship. “These are tears of joy,” Frank Mutsindikwa, 34, told Reuters, holding aloft the Zimbabwean flag. “I’ve been waiting all my life for this day. Free at last. We are free at last.” Some held aloft placards reading “No to Mugabe dynasty” and pumping their fists in the air in a sign of ...

24 sites to have sensors under hydro project 18.11.2017 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Chandigarh, November 17 Nineteen sites have been identified for setting up a system to monitor water discharge in rivers and streams of Punjab under the National Hydrology Project (NHP), besides five sites where automatic weather stations (AWS) would be installed. It is envisaged that the NHP will improve reservoir operations by providing optimal dam filling and release schedules through timely and reliable data acquisition, storage, collation and management of water resources. This would result in releasing greater quantities of water for hydroelectric power generation, irrigation, drinking and industrial supply. According to studies, additional hydroelectric power generation from the NHP in Punjab is expected to be around 40 MW, resulting in an annual incremental benefit of Rs11.8 crore. The additional availability of water for irrigation, drinking and industrial production is assumed to be 4.7, 0.5 and 5.1 million cubic metres, respectively, with a combined annual incremental ...

National Green Tribunal gives nod to Amaravati 18.11.2017
Hyderabad: In a massive relief for the AP government, the National Green Tribunal (NGT) on Friday accorded approval for construction of the capital city Amaravati. It observed that there was no better site than the one presented before the tribunal. While declining to set aside the environmental clearance granted for the capital city project on October 9, 2015, a three-member bench of the NGT said, "We hold and declare that the project falls under category "B" of the EIA Notification of 2006, and thus the imposition of additional conditions would be necessary." NGT Bench: Various factors balanced while giving the nod  The bench comprising chairperson Justice Swatanter Kumar, Justice Raghuvendra S. Rathore and expert member Bik-ram Singh Sajwan made it clear that the conditions put forth by the NGT would be applied mutatis mutandis (making necessary alterations while not affecting the main point at issue) to the conditions mentioned in the environmental    clearance ...

So, let's talk green: I've said it a 100 times! 18.11.2017
"If you miss the train I"m on, You will know that I am gone, You can hear the whistle blow, A hundred miles", Peter, Paul & Mary. From their song 500 miles. I am in a reminiscing mood to look back at life over the last couple of years. The reflective mood is because, this is my 100th article for this column. As I started the rear-view-mirror session, "The Global Climate Risk Index 2017" (CRI) report was released last week by Germanwatch, an independent Berlin-based development and environmental organisation. The report analyses extent to which countries have been affected by the impacts of weather-related events in the past. The past is meant to teach us how to deal with the future. Since the industrial revolution, we have been burning fossil fuels and releasing carbon into the atmosphere, which has caused global warming and the resulting climate change, leading to extreme weather events like storms, floods, landslides, droughts, heat waves. This has resulted in loss of ...

NGT refuses to quash environmental clearance to Amaravati 17.11.2017 The Tribune
New Delhi, November 17 The National Green Tribunal on Friday refused to set aside the environmental clearance granted to Amaravati, the proposed capital of Andhra Pradesh, saying that the prohibitory order would “jeopardise the financial interest” of the state and degrade the environment. The green panel, however, said that the project falls under the ‘Category B of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Notification of 2006’ and imposition of additional conditions in the environmental clearance (EC) were necessary. While allowing the construction, the tribunal said the project was being undertaken as a necessity of executive and legislative decisions and a state has to have its Capital. “Large-scale works of the project have already been executed at huge public expense and any prohibitory directions at this stage would not only jeopardise the financial interest of the state but would also become a serious environmental issue...,” the NGT said. The apex environmental watchdog directed the project ...

NGT refuses to set aside environmental clearance granted to Amaravati 17.11.2017 national
The National Green Tribunal (NGT) on Friday refused to interfere with the environment clearance granted to Amaravati, the proposed capital of Andhra Pradesh. The green panel formed two committees -- a supervisory committee and an implementation committee -- to monitor work on the project site of Amaravati. Representational Pic Earlier, the NGT had sought responses from the Centre and Andhra Pradesh after a plea filed by activist P Srimannarayan, E A S Sarma and others. The petition claimed the site is a flood-prone area and the state government had not considered the ecological and environmental aspects of the project while selecting the location for the greenfield capital city. The NGT had directed Andhra Pradesh government not to carry out any operation to clear the land falling in the project area without obtaining environmental clearance to the project. However, the green panel said last year that there was no stay on construction activity for the proposed capital on the banks of the Krishna but made ...
