Guess we know exactly where Bangladesh stands on saving tigers and other endangered wildlife...

Interesting that the Environment Minister and Energy Minister have differing public views on the environmental challenges that Bangladesh faces due to climate change and which they are already experiencing. Obviously a coal-fired power plant adjacent to a major mangrove forest is going to have some environmental impact. Let's hope for the sake of the environment that reason prevails over profit.

Noted. It's a very informative article from a excellent site. Tigers are at risk and the entire mangrove tree eco-system. Glad the people are against it.

Oh that's really smart. They already suffer from sever inclement weather and I guess a coal plant will really alleviate this problem?

Really stupid. They should leave the forest alone and look somewhere else to put that coal plant. Thanks for sharing, Cal.
