 Chongqing stone column destroyed 5000 acres of wetlands only 3 factory media: face too painful


In April 16th, the Shui Mo river channel in the core area of Shui Mo Xi Nature Reserve was destroyed by industrial park. Map source: Xinhua Daily Telegraph. Photographer: Huang Ying. The more than 20 thousand mu Wetland Nature Reserve near the Bank of the Yangtze River, nearly 1/4 was pushed to the industrial park, and the precious wetland ecology was destroyed. However, only 3 enterprises were located in the park - the Metamorphosis of the wetland nature reserve in Shizhu County, Chongqing, which was exposed by the daily Xinhua Daily Telegraph. Some people, once they miss it, no longer is the lyrics of later. In fact, some things are hard to destroy once they are destroyed, such as wetlands. Unfortunately, Shizhu County turned thousands of acres of wetlands into construction sites, leaving behind a large amount of ecological arrears. The destruction of 5000 acres of wetlands, only 3 factories, the outrageous situation, but also in the cost-benefit analysis framework under the huge losses, for this kind of damage alarm.

As far as reality is concerned, the importance of wetlands is no longer stressed: it has an irreplaceable role in preventing floods, flood and drought, degrading and pollution, regulating climate, promoting silting and making land, beautifying the environment, and also called the kidney of the earth, which is the three largest ecosystem in the forest, the ocean and the world. For the Yangtze River, those large and small wetlands are also their capillaries. In previous years, the destruction of wetlands was not a news. In the early years, there were also definite incentives for the reclamation of wetlands and the development of suitable agriculture for tidal flat. Shizhu destroyed about 5000 acres of wetlands locally, which is also related to the background of heavy protection and development. Rao is so, its destruction of the attitude of the reckless, the consequences of the serious, it is still astonished: the Changjiang Shizhu section of the Wetland Nature Reserve in 2009 set up, in the year, the county made the planning and construction of the West Tuo Industrial Park on the agenda, even if the overlap area is up to about 5000 mu. After the construction of the industrial park started in 2011, 5534 villages were resettlement in 3 villages, and about 2000000000 yuan was invested in infrastructure construction and supporting facilities. It has been ironic to destroy so many wetlands and toss so many people, so much money, that there are 3 factories on the ground. The sign of the Three Gorges Emigration eco industrial park in the related park is also like black humor though it cant be laughed out. At present, it has become an environmental protection equipment factory for the unfinished project. There are only 3 enterprises in the West Tuo Industrial Park. Map source: Xinhua Daily Telegraph.

As early as January 2016, general secretary Xi Jinping stressed at the Forum on promoting the development of the Changjiang Economic Belt, to put the ecological environment in the Yangtze River in an overwhelming position, to catch a total of great protection and not to make great development. In December 12, 2016, the State Council also announced the plan of the wetland conservation and restoration system, which explicitly included the system of wetland area, wetland protection rate and wetland ecological condition into the system of evaluation and assessment of ecological civilization construction in the region, establishing a sound incentive mechanism and life-long accountability mechanism, and prohibiting the invasion of natural humidity. The water conservation space has been restored to the deadline. In this context, we should learn from mistakes instead of self rescue by curves. This should also ushered in the echo of the accountability. In April 16th, the estuary of Shui Mo river was pushed into the mouth of the Changjiang River (UAV). Map source: Xinhua Daily Telegraph.

Taking into account the high cost of repairing damaged wetlands and the local follow-up measures, the parties concerned should also start a more thorough accountability to the public. Destroying 5000 acres of wetlands and bringing 3 factories is a warning to the short-sighted development of local ecological conditions, and also a warning to the destruction of wetlands. For this typical case, more places should be taken as a lesson to unlock the correct way of development and not let ecology give way to malformed development.
