PM scheduled to decide on disputed coal power plant in area next month

 

KRAI: -- IN a quest to protect their livelihoods and the environment, traditional fishermen of Ban Laem Hin village in Krabi have been engaged in a long-running battle to stop construction of the Krabi coal-fired power plant and coal-transporting pier.

 

The battle between opponents and supporters of the power plant has been fought for more than three years. 

 

Next month Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha is slated to announce if the project will get the green light or be scrapped.

 

In light of that, The Nation visited Ban Laem Hin, a prominent opposition hotbed in Nua Khlong district, to observe the natural treasure the locals are trying to preserve and speak to them about the proposed power plant project.

Coal  Plants are massive polluters , everybody knows this .

The preservation of a functional ecological environment is essential for the quality of life of the people living near .

Don't sacrifice an intact environment for some more profit of very few people who are probably already rich anyway . There are much better ways to create power from solar plants etc .

Burning fossile fuels is the way of the past , that lead to a lot of the problems that we have now .

Do not do the same old mistakes over and over again ...only stupid and , or , greedy people do this .
