On World Environment Day, CSE warns Delhi’s air pollution and congestion crisis will worsen this decade if urgent action is not taken

On World Environment Day, this report card from Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) warns that Delhi's air pollution and congestion crisis will worsen this decade if urgent action is not taken and calls for radical improvements in public transport.

On this World Environment Day, Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) sounds a warning -- newer air pollution and mobility challenges are threatening Delhi. An ominous slide has already begun. While the air remains extremely dirty, severe energy impacts of growing motorisation are being felt as well. This summer, both particulate matter and ozone levels have exceeded standards almost on a daily basis. At the same time, the share of carbon dioxide emissions from personal vehicles (which warms up the air) is increasing rapidly.
