Goa may face same fate as flood-hit Kerala, warns ecologist Madhav Gadgil who ‘predicted’ southern state disaster in 2011

Prime News, National (Panaji), August 20:-  Goa may face the same fate as the flood-battered Kerala if it does not take precautions on the environmental front, noted ecologist Madhav Gadgil warned on Sunday. Gadgil had headed a committee that authored a widely debated study on the Western Ghats a few years ago.

Reacting to the worst-ever floods in the southern state, he said, “Certainly all sorts of problems are beginning to surface on the environmental front in the Western Ghats. Goa, of course, does not have the Western Ghats which are so high as in Kerala, but I am sure Goa will also experience all sorts of problems.”

According to the ecologist, Goa is witnessing activities which are driven by greed for unlimited profits. He said that the reason for not taking any environmental precaution (in general) is pure greed for unlimited profits. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
