Coal at the moment seems like an answer to a lot of our fast-growing power difficulties. even though, whereas coal advocates are urging complete steam forward, expanding reliance at the dirtiest of all fossil fuels has the most important implications for weather technology, power coverage, the area economic system, and geopolitics.

Drawbacks to a coal-based strength process include:
• Scarcity—new reviews end up that the height of usable coal construction may very well be below 20 years away.
• Cost—the caliber of produced coal is declining, whereas the fee of shipping is emerging, resulting in spiralling expenses and strength shortages.
• weather impacts—our skill to accommodate the ancient problem of weather swap may possibly hinge on decreasing our coal intake in years to come. Blackout is going to the center of the harsh power questions that may dominate each sphere of public coverage in the course of the first 1/2 this century, and it's a must-read for planners, educators, and someone all for power intake, top oil, and weather change.

Example text

It was about 40 years back when it was realized that before a development project is started, prediction and assessment of its impacts should be done, so that measures could be taken to minimize those impacts. This concept was formulated as a methodical procedure known as Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA). Further, for achieving the goals of real improvement in the quality of human life, development should be based on sustainability principles. Thus, sustainable development aims at growth with judicious use of resources and causing minimum damage to the environment.

Regional development policies Fig. 2. Multidimensional model for sustainable development. ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT 35 Sustainable development is possible by considering the earth and its resources as common for all. Participatory role of public and different nations for evolving technological innovations and conservationist life style is equally important to achieve economic growth, ecological balance, equity and resource conservation.
