power plant, which is currently being constructed in the middle of Sundarbans
will be creating a serious environmental issue. The nature of Bangladesh will
be destroyed, the country will be more natural disaster prone, and the world
will go one step closer to its imminent natural death. Local authorities have
grown really interested in this topic, but the government isn’t paying any heed
to the anxious complaints of the people.
Power plants produce carbon, whose dangerousness is at its rise. Carbon
emission traps heat inside the earth, for which the temperature is rising,
causing the polar ice to melt. Due to this, as Bangladesh is a low land area,
if the pollutions keep going the country will soon be submerged in water.
Carbon emission also creates ozone smog. It depletes the ozone layer, causing
solar radiation to reach inside earth’s atmosphere.
Carbon pollution also causes droughts. Droughts are the main reason for scarcity
Crops cant grow, water sources dries out, causing food defiecit across the
area. This also makes the land uncultivable. It increases the temperature and
causes natural life to become extinct from the area.
Another kind of pollution the Rampal Power plant may cause is particle
pollution. This kind of pollution is generally known as soot. Soots pollute and
degrades particle around the area. So soon people will be unable to live in the
near areas of Sundarbans.
Many kinds of mercury
pollution occurs due to coal-based power plant. Among them respiratory
diseases, kidney diseases, birth defects are notable. Due to this life
expectancy decreases. Water gets polluted. Fruits don’t grow anymore, natural
Due to Rampal power plant, 6000 babies will die of premature death, areas like
noakhali, satkhira, Khulna will be danger prone, and Bangladesh will be facing
more and more natural calamities. So our only hope is that minimum damage is
caused by the power plant, which only god knows will be possible or not.
