Brick kilns are recognized as one of the largest stationary sources of black carbon, which along with iron and steel production, contribute 20% of total black carbon emissions.– CCAC

There is a real urgency to curb the ongoing harmful effects on the environment of an estimated 500,000 antiquated, highly polluting brick kilns which operate globally. They are major contributors to climate change and a significant source of CO2 emissions, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and short-lived climate pollutants (SCLP's). Brick kilns damage air quality and human health, and the toxic pollutants seriously affect the lives of billions. As climate has been changed rapidly due to these brick kilns, many environmental breakdowns occurred in nature.

The rainy season didn't come on time; it came early and created many floods that resulted in these brick kilns being submerged. In this series, we can see hundreds of brick factories emitting CO2, which creates a breakdown in nature, and when the flood came, they were submerged.

The aerial view shows a Chimney from a local Brick Factory flooded by monsoon rains near Savar, Dhaka, Bangladesh. Hundreds of brick factories appear to have nearly disappeared under water following severe flooding.

The buildings were covered with water during the entire monsoon season after a nearby river breached its banks. Workers were able to save thousands of bricks - but many were lost to the 20 ft deep floodwater. The latest United Nation's Agenda for the General Meeting is about "Climate Change". Now, it is high time, we look forward to monitoring these brick kiln as soon as possible for the betterment of the world.
