Why Can’t Delhi Fight Winter Pollution?

Winter is coming. Delhi is once again enforcing emergency measures to tackle deadly air pollution. But why do we always have to wait for the worst before we try to tackle it?

    True, अब WHO ने प्रदूषण पर अपनी ताज़ा रिपोर्ट 2018 में. दुनिया के 20 सबसे प्रदूषित शहरों की सूची में 14 भारत के हैं. दिल्ली भारत का सबसे प्रदूषित शहर है

    Not a single plant. Foolish people always blame others for that. Not a single tree is there People's even not planting roof tops. You all deserve this. Not blame farmers for that.

    The problem is compounded because also only makes it an issue in winter months... Its funny... that we are over-complicating a fairly simple physical problem. We don't have chemical pollutants, its particulate pollution. Sources are very very well known (both geographically) and figuratively (what are the sources) - stubble / bio-mass burning, road and construction dust, power plant emissions and finally vehicular emissions. Also the solution for source are more operational and low tech and low cost...but yes needs a lot of enforcement and political and bureaucractic will. Road Side Emissions: Wash major roads - 3 times a day with ETP water. Don't do dry sweeping - either vaccuming or washing of streets Construction Dust: Watering of active dust piles....and covering up of non active dust piles Bare Patches of Land: There should be no bare patch of land on Indo-gangetic plain, just plan jungli grass. Once you increase green cover, precipitation will kick in and nature will start cleaning the environment for you! Stubble Burning: If we are subsidizing farmers, let's do it completely. Government should provide free end to end stubble clearing service just how free water and electricity are provided. All tractor and equipment companies can sell their equipment to the government to implement this. Power Plant emissions: Improve enforcement and control of stacks - it's only NTPC and that's a government company - let's tighten the noose there Vehicular Emissions - Get Odd-Even. Remove Diesel vehicles (any age) from city centres. Fines of 50,000!

    Tell the goddamn farmers near the capital to stop burning haystacks in open. All the smoke, that is the prime reason for pollution and smog in Delhi...
