The capital of Azerbaijan is slowly lowered into the sea. The process of reducing the territory accelerated by constantly rising sea level — say the experts. "Baku goes under the water," — said in an interview with "Echo", the famous ecologistTelman Zeynalov, passes AZE.az.
"Until about four years ago, I spoke and gave a forecast that Baku is flooded by the Caspian Sea, and is the movement of water in the city will continue until about 2020. At the time, President Heydar Aliyev issued a decree just about 130-meter area on the shore, where it is impossible to build. Unfortunately, the area sold. it is built up, and in time all these buildings will be under water "- quoted ecologist Azerbaijani media.
"As it is estimated that by 2020, the Maiden Tower — the symbol of Baku — will wash waves ecologist added. — We need to use the experience, for example the Netherlands, the country which is also on the water, and there is increasing every year by protecting barriers to the territory is not sank under the water. We need to do this all around the city, and not just on the waterfront. "
Meanwhile, in its time honored builder of AzerbaijanEmil Akhundovsaid that the territory of Baku declining steadily due sezzhaniya city in the sea. "If you look down on the city, we will see how the sea adjacent small patch of the plains, and the rest of the city goes to the hill. So this little plain area is the center of Baku. And this penny today is under terrible aggression. Example, you know Do you think that our television tower for various reasons creeping down every year for 7 millimeters. You know that he Baku each year creeps toward Turkan to 8 millimeters. So this little patch of overloaded, then mixed it all: chops, horses, flies "- said the expert.
Today Akhundov of the same opinion. "The earth's crust constantly changing and shifting plates. But man by his behavior and way of life leads to the fact that such processes occur very rapidly and actively," — said in an interview with "Echo" August 22 honored builder of Azerbaijan.
In order to change the situation, it is necessary to involve experts, believes Akhundov. "We have very strong professionals at the Institute of Geology of the Academy of Sciences of Azerbaijan. Necessary to bring them all the time. Let them develop measures together with the architects of our city."
General environmental situation in Azerbaijan is simply catastrophic. "Smog is visible on the facades and roofs, in general, everywhere — lamenting the expert. — Falling trees, and this is blamed on senility. And in fact, trees are falling, because they have no chance to grow. Their roots rot or dry . in the earth beneath them, even choking and wood worm, respectively, with him. We have an environmental disaster. not have to be, such as an earthquake. Earthquake instant phenomenon, and there are lingering disaster, which then "babahnut" so that there is little we can not will appear. "
