It is also one of Thailand's top tourist destinations. The Thai government is planning to build 4,400 megawatts of new coal plants across the country including Krabi. Local communities in Thailand's south and Greenpeace are opposing Thailand's coal expansion plans, as coal plant emissions have adverse effects on human health, crops and marine life, and are also a major source of climate change, causing greenhouse gases. Railay beach is 30 kilometers away from the coal plant site.Locations:Asia-Krabi-Southeast Asia-ThailandDate:21 Mar, 2013Credit:© Athit Perawongmetha / GreenpeaceMaximum size:3000px X 2000pxKeywords:Beaches-Beauty-Climate (campaign title)-Coal-Coastal features-Coastlines-Copy space-Day-Evening-Islands-KWCI (GPI)-Nature-Oceans (campaign title)-Outdoors-Scenic-Seascapes-Silhouettes-Sunsets-Tourism-TouristsShoot:Thailand's Krabi Province DocumentationGreenpeace has revealed by mapping the marine ecosystem in Krabi province, that another planned coal power project in the province's Tambol Pakasai, Nhua Khlong district will destroy fragile sea life and unique wetlands.
