A #thread on #DelhiPollution.

The air pollution levels have shot back up in the Delhi area. Many people have been reporting sickness and headaches - but the group most at risk are children from poorer backgrounds.

Read this thread for more #DelhiAir:
We went to a slum in North Delhi last week to see the impact the sky high pollution levels were having on residents there. One NGO worker estimated that 90% of the children there had some sort of breathing problem, including pneumonia.

At the slum I met Shabhana with her three month old twins. She told me both have pneumonia, and blames the #DelhiPollution.

She's renting a nebuliser (she can't afford to buy one), so she can pump medicines to their lungs.

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.
