There is a widespread opposition to coal-based thermal power plants worldwide as they are the principle agents that contribute to the deposition of sulphuric and nitrogen compounds that are deposited in vast quantity in the atmosphere.

Slurry: The slurry from the thermal plant and tonnes of coal used to fuel the plant in open yards will pollute the rivers and jeopardise the existence of thousands of people living in the downstream of the river(s).

Acid Rain: The monsoon winds could drive clouds towards a city. Again, the fly ash and carbon deposited in the atmosphere mingles with water vapour and comes down in the form of acid rain during monsoon.

No Rain Water Harvesting: The rain water harvesting which is being promoted as a panacea for drinking water scarcity, will have to be abandoned as acid rain will make it unfit for consumption.

Fly ash: 30-40% of the fly ash that is generated in the thermal plants is released into the air. It's a very high temperature (minimum temperature=50-60 degree C) when it is carried by wind and spreads over a radius of 100 km and more.

Atmospheric Temperature Rises: The ambient / atmospheric temperature of the surrounding region rises by 7-8 degree C to alter the local climatic conditions and the region may become a furnace during summer, according to environmentalists.

Boiler Explosion: Temperature at which the coal burns is 1000 degree C, as a result of which boilers could explode endangering safety.

Destruction of ecosystem: The land required for the plant will also include large tracts of forests that will be used to dump coal. The run offs during rainy season will flow into the rivers and fields and destroy the ecosystem of the valleys and the surrounding forests.

Likely Diseases: Asthma and cancer.

Therefore, the coal-based plants are redundant in an age when concerns are being expressed over the disaster called global warming contributed to by the emission of greenhouse gases like carbon-di-oxide that coal-based power plants emit in large quantities. They've a negative impact on wildlife, flora and fauna, the rivers and lakhs of people within their vicinity.
