India’s air pollution crisis

As mentioned recently, I am going to Bangalore, India on January 17th for our TB work. One of the things I’m curious about is air pollution there. This issue has been covered extensively in the New York Times, including an article published today by Nida Najar.

Josh Apte, one of my friends from college, is an assistant professor at the University of Texas and studies air particulate matter. He and I have emailed about this enormous challenge. It really seems like a public health crisis.

Thanks so much for visiting my website! Writing and reading blog posts does take time and we all know that time is in short supply. You and I will both get much more out of this blog if it leads to dialogue. If you found my post useful and wouldn’t mind leaving a brief comment or sharing on social media, I would be grateful. Or if you’re shy about Tweeting but are willing to email me a comment that I can post anonymously or send an anonymous Surveymonkey, that would be great. My posts are generally written quickly, so if you find any factual or grammatical errors, please do let me know. Best regards, Philip Lederer

  1. Yes air pollution is bad. Noise pollution is also a challenge. I wrote on that locally in 2007. I will be in Bangalore same time. Vinod Seth 701 426 4788
