Biga, a town of Canakkale province, in which local
people deals with agriculture and livestock is facing
danger of thermal power plant that is told to be
activated in the near future. Local people revolted
against the plant, which is planned to ac on fossil
waste. Biga inhabitants saying "nature and human life
are in danger" are speedily getting organized against
the power plant. A group of Biga inhabitants tried to
come nearby the plant by a boat to take shot (photos
and video shot). However security staff did not let
them to dock nearby using pressurized water against
them. Continuously press releases, panels, and
discussions are being organized in the town. Posters
WHEN, IF IT IS NOT NOW?" were hanged on every
corner of the town. People's response against the
power plant is growing day by day.

Environmental effects of thermal power plant

Sulfur and nitrogen oxides, which are discharged
through the chimneys go to interaction and create
acid rains. Acid rain causes dying of the trees,
falling of the leaves, and trees may no longer
bloom and bear fruit. Erosion that appears after
the diminishing of forests and drying of the soil
causes loss of large amounts of soil. These gases
also affect the life of both human-beings and animals.
In thermal power plants water is used for various
purposes such as cooling, steam producing and
cleaning. Even if the waste water -that appears after
all those operations- is retreated again and again, in
any case it causes environmental pollution.
