Apocalyptic Smog Causes Health Concerns: ‘Delhi Has Become A Gas Chamber’

Residents of the heavily populated city of New Delhi, India have had to tie scarves across their faces in an effort to breathe more easily.  The heavy smog in the city is entering day three, and a state of emergency could soon be declared to protect the health of the people who reside there.

Air quality readings in India’s capital have soared since Tuesday, with one monitor showing levels in the city were 969. To put that in perspective, the World Health Organization considers anything above 25 to be unsafe. Those levels are based on the concentration of fine particulate matter, or PM 2.5, per cubic meter. The microscopic particles, which are smaller than 2.5 micrometers in diameter, are considered particularly harmful because they are small enough to lodge deep into the lungs and pass into other organs, causing serious health risks.

The wider Delhi-National Capital Region (NCR) is a sprawling area that encompasses Delhi, as well as satellite districts in the neighboring states of Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, and Rajasthan, and is home to some 46 million people  The area lacks effective public transportation and workers must drive their own cars to and from jobs in the city, which CNN says further exacerbates the problem.

According to CNN, The Delhi government is being urged to declare a city-wide health emergency, as residents endured a third straight day of heavy pollution. But apparently, this happens every year, according to one Twitter user, who blames the smog on crop burning.

Every year, farmers across fertile neighboring states set fire to their fields to clear them for the next season. Known as stubble burning, millions of tons of crop residue are set alight releasing untold amounts of particulate matter into the environment.

Politicians and government officials are also blaming farmers in neighboring northern Indian states who clear their fields by burning their crops. The landlocked capital sits in a natural bowl and is surrounded by industrial and agricultural hubs. Without the coastal breeze of cities such as Mumbai and Chennai, much of the pollution settles.

But crop burning is not the only problem India faces with regards to their pollution problem.  Delhi’s pollution also comes from industrial emissions, vehicle exhaust from cars, road dust, and the burning of biomass, said Santosh Harish, assistant director of research at EPIC India, a research institute based in the US and India.

A report by the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur carried out in 2014 found that vehicle omissions accounted for 20% of Delhi’s annual PM2.5 levels and combating that pollution will be a difficult task because the number of cars on the city’s roads has continued to rise. According to government statistics, the total number of vehicles in Delhi exceeded 10 million for the first time in 2016.

Should New Delhi fail to reign in their pollution, the health of 46 million is on the line.

  1. A crock of shit. Just more lies to stifle business just like in america. Got to get rid of everything that might pollute. Bullshit. Next they will be claiming that exhaling causes pollution and we must stop.

  2. tahini says:

    I am finding it a little hard to be simpathetic towards the people there who are breating in this filth. Just finished reading and article with photos of Indians burning a poor elephant calf alive over some stupid plot of land. You can add this to the other litany of animal and girl abuses that seem to come out of this country on a daily basis. Communist China was able to deal with their out of control population and birth rate, maybe this country should limit the amount of brats born to each house.

    • Frank Thoughts says:

      China is a 21st century country while India is a dirt hole and getting worse by the day. Most Indians poop outside, they pollute at unbelievable levels, their cities are filthy, personal hygiene is non-existent.

      India needs to ditch its backward ways and join the modern world. The one thing I give them is they have some of the most beautiful women in the world. For that is the only blessing in this sad story.

      • Heartless says:

        Same thought Frank Thoughts. India is so mired in its culture of religious viewpoints that it is probably considered proper to spew toxins into the air. Best thing that could happen to the country is everyone there to open their own Quiky-Mart and just stay indoors worshipping golden calves or something. Whatever trips their triggers.

      • laura ann says:

        Frank thoughts: Problem is low IQ and super laziness, as they like to live in squalor like many towns in Africa. Never want to better themselves. They get funding for wells, and don’t dig them or plant crops, as others do it for them (peace corp, etc) their hygiene is non existent and the country is a third world manure pit.

    • laura ann says:

      tahini: got to agree, their breeding is outa control like animals on par with rats, rabbits and roaches. These people lack ability for critical thinking or even not knowing that certain acts produce babies they can’t feed or support. Bottom feeders for sure.

    • Historian says:

      @ tahini

      Are you as “simpathetic” [sic] when babies are chopped up in America as you are when baby elephants are killed?

      Just asking.

      • Shiva says:

        How many animals have humans killed? Fuck humans, all they have ever done is overpopulate, destroy, pollute, and kill eachother. Animals are regulated by nature, humans consume as much as possible so they can continue to over breed. There is and will be a tipping point, man will kill himself or nature will do it for him. Abortion is a blessing you fool, or maybe we should tax anti abortionists for the cost of all the millions of extra CONSUMERS to feed? How much can this planet stand of the human cancer? The oceans are way over fished (thanks you fucking (zipperheads) and radiated and no answer for the nuclear waste to power your endless appetite to overpopulate. and taking up every available off grid place to get away from the same shit your creating BY OVERPOPULATING! Thank god we have no kids because I would hate to have to explain the truth to them about our irresponsibility!

  3. aljamo says:

    Yeah but if those people in India harm a cow or a rat they will be reincarnated into something evil. Or something like that. The fact that Great Britain and the US still control that nation is astonishing. Then again all of the non corporate convenience stores and dive motels here in this part of the US are run by Indian immigrants. US polluted by third world peons with no regard for actual American citizens, aka the silent invasion.

  4. Archivist says:

    The farmers need to learn about no-till farming.

    But they’re too ignorant to even dig wells for water. My church has sent money and people there to dig wells for them. It’s like the people in Africa that the Peace Corps had to teach how to plant seeds in the ground to grow food. It’s amazing these people haven’t died out already.

  5. Wojo says:

    A shit hole of a country…right next to Mexico and parts of China!

  6. AlphaJollah-NoPhotoPlz says:

    hard to believe beautiful gemstone material comes from india.

    India’s government had a spy ring just like we got right now with Awangate fer examper https://www.truthleaks.org/

    How can you teach people to say ignore the United Nations narrative, while at the same time not Ignore their action and indeed pre- whatever and fight ahead of the next turn in the River ahead.

  7. Traitor Hator says:

    China air pollution detected in California. Wherever the third world goes it grows. Destroy the planet or them?Take your pick.

  8. Bill says:

    I worked with a person from India, he came here with his wife and two kids. He likes to say how Indian culture is superior to American culture. I said if it is so good over there why are you here; no answer. Both of his sons are married now, but their wives were brought over from India also. I asked him why their wives had to be from India, he said because all American women are low-bred, trashy, and stupid. I told him his country is hideously overpopulated, and the way I see and most others too is that his culture has caused his home country to become almost uninhabitable, the land, air and water inundated with every kind of filth and now they are bringing this complete indifference to the environment to this country. I asked him about the Christian faith growing there, he didn’t like it. To point out his hypocrisy I asked why should we allow his religion to be practiced here but Christianity shouldn’t be allowed there, he said our religion was foolish but his beliefs were correct and better. All I had to say after that was why are you here!
    I read later in an article about population if the whole world had the same population density as India there would be about 40 billion people.

    So that’s why that guy from publishers clearing house that called and told me I won ten million dollars was coughing so much. Trekker Out
