“A new study on air pollution in Delhi by a team of researchers led by the University of Surrey in the United Kingdom has found the city suffers from a ‘toxic blend of geography, growth, poor energy sources and unfavourable weather that boosts its dangerously high levels of air pollution’. The study also recommends all-round solutions instead of just focusing on vehicular pollution. The study was recently published in the journal Atmospheric Environment and includes a professor from IIT Delhi. The team researched how Delhi’s landscape, weather, energy consumption culture, and growing urban population combines to elevate concentrations of air pollutants, including ultra-fine particles, the most harmful to human health.” The Indian Express.
