#DelhiPollution: Supreme Court takes up the issue of pollution in the capital and other parts of North India.

"Delhi is choking every year and we are not able to do anything. Evry year this is happening for 10-15 days," Justice Arun Mishra
Justice Arun Mishra: This cannot happen in a civilised country. Right to life is the most important... 'We want to burn our crop and let others die' we can't live like this

Justice Arun Mishra: State machinery is also not functioning properly. There is passing of buck... Delhi should do or Centre should do. And now, see pollution levels.

(1/5) While the left-wing and right-wing indulges in idiotic debates as to what made the #AirQuality in the capital go down, #DelhiChokes in what looks like another day in hell.
(2/5) The #DelhiAirEmergency has been tackled with such childish intent that the citizens are feeling more helpless than secured.
(3/5) No! Not everyone can afford to buy Air Purifiers and stay home. Not everyone knows the ill-effects of #ParticulateMatters and is slowly impending towards health-wise doom.

The Keeling curve has steadily crossed 450 and unprecedented urbanization increasingly looks like the future of humanity will live in cities. The sustainability of natural resources of water, air, land and energy will be critical to our survival.
In India, the nation has power, states have money and cities/villages have the problems. This mismatch must be corrected by effective interventions in honest politics, effective governments, market, academia and civil society. Problems must be met with resources and intent.
