World's most polluted capital cities revealed as Delhi is ranked worst

Gurugram World's Most Polluted City 6 Others In India In Top 10 Study

A new study now finds that India accounts for seven of the world's 10 cities with the worst air pollution.

The positive news was that air quality in Beijing has got better.

Delhi had an average yearly PM2.5 concentration at 113.5 micrograms per cubic metre, followed by Dhaka at 97.1 micrograms per cubic metre.

Air pollution will take an estimated seven million lives globally in the next year, while costing the world's economy almost 225 billion Dollars, the Greenpeace said.

Senior Conservatives soften on May's Brexit deal ahead of key vote
If her deal is rejected, parliamentarians will vote on March 13 on whether they want to leave with no deal. However, net migration to Britain from non-EU countries is at its highest since 2004.


China struggled for years to enforce environment rules and crack down on polluting industries, but it has benefited in recent years from vastly improved legislation and greater political will to combat poor air quality.

PM2.5 is particulate matter that has a diameter of less than 2.5 micrometers, which is about three percent the diameter of a human hair. "This has enormous impacts, on our health and on our wallets".

Another global study has said it yet again.

The Indian capital of Delhi, which has raised a million questions over the last two years with its pollution level breaking all limits, was placed at the 11th spot in the list. "Common contributors of pollutants in South Asia include vehicle exhaust, open crop and biomass burning, industrial emissions and coal combustion", explains the report.

"The report is a reminder to us indicating that our efforts and actions to reduce the invisible killer, i.e., air pollution, are not enough and we need to do much more than already planned and done", said Pujarini Sen of Greenpeace India.

Seven of the top 10 polluted cities in 2018 were in India, including Ghaziabad, Faridabad, Bhiwandi, Noida, Patna and Lucknow. This indicates that the air pollution in our cities has not come down over the years, despite many mitigative actions from local governments.

The Greenpeace and AirVisual analysis of air pollution readings from 3,000 cities around the world found that 64% exceed the World Health Organization's annual exposure guideline for PM2.5 fine particulate matter - tiny airborne particles, about a 40th of the width of a human hair, that are linked to a wide range of health problems. This has also created demand for air quality monitoring in cities or regions where no public data is available.
