Pollution is not just an urban phenomenon like Govt says
Air pollution is primarily an urban phenomenon and the government is focusing on monitoring ambient air quality in urban areas, Parliament has been informed.
This is clearly clearly wrong and it can be proven by measuring AQI in october november in rohtak sirsa and various villages in punjab haryana uttar pradesh etc.
99.9% of these villages semi urban areas dont have aqi stations and hence nothing is measured.
Shocked by such poor understanding of people in CPCB and ministry of environment.
Can Localcircles become more active on the issue of pollution?? more
The pollution situation is alarming in NCR alone leave aside other areas where still some greenery are there.....no alternative yet to stable burning ?? more
How can the results be different if the causes continue just the same! Diesel, more so in villages still a major fuel running agricultural pumpsets, trucks, trailers, tractors - even the one used to till the land, and the ubiquitous jugaad! Has that been replaced by CNG, all across the hinterland? Then in household, chulhas burn fire wood again as although the households may have switched to LPG connections, refilling with gas has become too expensive. Then there remains the waste burning problem. However, hope is still there under Pradhan Mantri Kisan Urja Suraksha evam Utthaan Mahabhiyan - PM KUSUM, wherein people would be transitioning towards renewable energy sources, such as solar energy. Over 3,80,000 pumps have been solarised already. Hope still remains. more
We don't need pollution meters to measure pollution. One step outside our place of dwelling is enough to spot and breathe in polluted air - burning leaves and garbage, construction, vehicles spewing smoke, cigarette smoking etc. All these go unchecked. Thankfully, covid has given us a solution - wearing masks. more
Covid reduced pollution in NCR drastically . In India, only GOD can solve the problems. Politicians link every action to winning next election. more
