The future is clean energy such as solar and wind focus on those and you will wont be arguing about environmental pollution. 'Cheap is expensive'.
Oh pleez! Mr. Gupta stop misleading he public!!! You are using once-through cooling system to take up thousands of liters of water from the ocean instead of more modern recirculated cooling system. Your technology will be the worst for Lamu marine life!!! What about that?? Stop focusing on air modeling issues only. What about marine? What’s about the ashyard? You are planning to build an ashyard with 15 the capacity whereas all modern coal plant recycle the coal combustion products into construction and other materials. Stop with this PR gimic. You can’t fool those of us who have read the EIA!! https://youtu.be/jh-PDwBP1iM
WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING?
CAN'T YOU SEE THAT IT IS A SCAM? (A VERY STUPID FREAKING IDEA!)
CAN'T YOU SEE THAT THE WORLD IS MOVING AWAY FROM COAL BECAUSE OF THE DAMAGE THAT IT DOES TO THE ENVIRONMENT?
LOOK PEOPLE! ALL THAT YOU ARE DOING IS ADDING TO THE MASS AMOUNT OF COLLECTIVE HARMFUL GLOBAL CARBON THAT IS RESPONSIBLE FOR GLOBAL WARMING AND THE RISING TIDES HAPPENING ALL OBER THE WORLD!
NOW, WE ONLY HAVE ONE PLANET, AND WHEN WE HAVE DESTROYED IT WHERE ELSE CAN WE GO? DON'T LET THEM FOREIGN DEVILS LEAD YOU AFRICANS DOWN A PATH TO DESTRUCTION LIKE THE ONE THAT THEY ARE ON, ALL IN THE PURSUIT OF THE ALMIGHTY DOLLAR! I AM JUST WARNING YOU THAT THESE CROOKED GREEDY, MONEY HUNGRY SOCALLED BUSINESS PEOPLE ARE WILLING TO KEEP ON DESTROYING YOUR NATIVE LANDS JUST TO FILL THEIR OWN POCKETS WITH ALOT OF MONEY, AND THEN TURN AROUND AND RUN BACK TO THEIR HOMELAND TO A CLEAN ATMOSPHERE AND PROPEROUS LAND, WHILE YOUR NATIVE PEOPLE WILL NEED TO USE SPECIAL AIR FILTERS JUST TO BREATH IN YOUR OWN AFRICAN CITIES! I MEAN, MAYBE YOU SHOULD LOOK INTO WHAT HAPPENED TO CHINA AFTER THE IDIOT WESTERN BUSINESS PEOPLE SOLD THEM ON THE COAL SOLUTION AS A VIABLE ENERGY SOURCE FOR ALL OF THEIR ENERGY NEEDS, HUH? ESPECIALLY, BEFORE YOU COMMIT TO SUCH AN IRREVERSIBLE MEASURE AS TO USIMG COAL FOR ENERGY!
I MEAN, IN AMERICA, THE DEMAND FOR COAL IS DIMINISHING DUE TO THE SWITCH TO SOLAR AND WIND AS VIABLE ENERGY SUBSTITUTES THAT HAVE A SMALLER DESTRUCTIVE IMPACT ON THE ENVIRONMENT! I HOPE THAT YOU AFRICANS THINK LONG AND HARD BEFORE YOU ALLOW ANY FOREIGNERS DESTROY YOUR COUNTRY FOR A PROFIT! A PROFIT THAT THEY WILL TAKE BACK TO THEIR OWN COMMUNITIES, (WHICH MAY ALSO BE IN AFRICA, AS WELL) OR EVEN IN THEIR OWN FOREIGN COUNTRIES; WHILE YOUR OWN INDIGENOUS PEOPLE LIVE IN PRIMITIVE, MAKE-SHIFT, SHEET-METAL, SHANTY-TOWNS, ALL-OF-THE-WHILE, DOING ALL OF THE DANGEROUS WORK OF EXTRACTING AND DELIVERING THE COAL IN EXCHANGE FOR VERY, VERY MEAGER WAGES!
AND, I HOPE THAT YOU AFRICANS ARE NOT GOING TO ALLOW THOSE FOREIGNERS TO "RE-COLONIZE"AND EXPLOIT YOU IN THIS MODERN AGE!...?...
YOU SHOULD KICK OUT ALL FOREIGMERS AND TAKE CARE OF YOUR OWN PEOPLES' NEEDS BY SENDING YOUR YOUTH TO SCHOOLS THAT TEACH ENGINEERING DESIGN, ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING, CONSTRUCTION TRADES, ENVIRONMENTAL STUDIES, ETC; AND MAKE SURE THAT YOU CREATE A SOCIETY BASED ON EDUCATING EVERYONE IN A USEFUL TRADE SCHOOL WHERE THE SUCCESSFUL GENERATION TEACHES THEIR SKILLS TO THE NEXT SUCCESSIVE GENERATION COMING UP BEHIND THEM!
AND, DO NOT TRUST THE EUROPEAN CAPITALISTIC BUSNESS MODEL AS A WAY FOR YOU TO DEVELOP A RESOURCE DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM! IT IS A HEARTLESS, SELFISH WAY! IT DOES HARM WHEREEVER YOU FIND IT! JUST LOOK BACK INTO YOUR OWN TRAGIC HISTORY! SEE EXACTLY WHAT THE BLIND MADNESS OF FOREIGN CAPITALISM HAS DONE TO AFRICA, AND HER PEOPLE SINCE THE INCEPTION OF THE FIRST FOREIGN CONTACT! YOU WILL SEE THAT IT HAS ALL BEEN VERY VERY BAD FOR ALL OF AFRICA AND ALL OF HER PEOPLE IN GENERAL, AS WELL!
SO I WOULD HOPE THAT YOU BACK OUT OF THIS COAL DEAL BECAUSE WHENEVER AFRICANS DEAL WITH FOREIGNERS FOR ANYTHING INDIGENOUSLY AFRICAN, IT IS ALWAYS THE NATIVE AFRICAN POPULATION THAT GETS EXPLOITED FOR PENNIES ON THE DOLLAR, WHILE THE FOREIGNERS REAP A BIG PAYDAY AND LIVE HIGH OFF OF THE HOG!
SOME FOREIGNERS CREATE A FORM OF AN APARTHIED SYSTEM THAT ENSURES THAT THE FOREIGNERS ALWAYS MAINTAIN A POSITION OF POWER, WHILE THE INDIGENOUS AFRICANS ARE RELEGATED TO A PERMANENT POSITION OF SERVITUDE, OR GENERAL LABOR! IF THIS IS ALSO HAPPENING IN YOUR TOWN NOW, THEN YOU ARE ALREADY LOSING THE BATTLE OF YOUR OWN INDEPENDEDNCE! AND IF YOU DON'T MAKE DRASTIC CHANGES NOW, YOU WILL ONLY MANAGE TO DOOM YOUR SUCCESSIVE GENERATIONS TO BECOME PERMANENTLY HELPLESS, IGNORANT LABORERS WHO ARE NOW HOPELESSLY DEPENDENT UPON THOSE FOREIGNERS' JOB OPPURTUNITIES AS GENERAL LABORERS AS THEIR ONLY MEANS OF SURVIVAL! IJS!
Anyways, those are just some of my observations. I hope that they have enlightened you indigenous Africans as to what you all should do next! I hope that you choose wisely, because you will not be able to get "do-overs"if you get it wrong! You just get dead! So, don't mess it up! (No pressure! LOL!)
PEACE!✌ OUT!✋
Sucks for the environment but the benefits out way the cost. This is there first one so the little damages prolly can be reversed later.
Litter bug shame on you!
Well done Kenya .
