Today we see many different pollutants over the world. One of the environmental issues is air pollution which I feel is important. World air pollution is a huge and I research in Air pollution in India is a serious issue with the major sources being fuel wood and biomass burning, fuel adulteration, vehicle emission and traffic congestion. I read an article based on air pollution in India in the New York Times paper. According to India’s Central Pollution Control Board, in 2010, particulate matter in the air of 180 Indian cities was six times higher than World Health Organization standards. In the report, India ranks 127 in terms of human health from environmental damage and in air quality where it ranks 174, barely above Pakistan, China, Nepal and Bangladesh. "India's air quality is among the worst in the world, tying China in terms of the proportion of the population exposed to average air pollution levels exceeding World Health Organization thresholds". In the report a health study that found last year in 2013 that (outdoor) air pollution is the fifth biggest threat to people lives in India. The study says that it is responsible for over 600,000 premature deaths in the country, which is six times as many as in the year 2000.
