In India, apart from dust pollution and vehicle emission pollution, we have all burning pollution. Garbage is burning, Dead bodies are burning, rituals burning, Deepavali crackers burning, Firewood is burning, Oud burning, Agarbathi burning, Candles burning. Smoke, smoke smoke. Everywhere smoke.

To Control Pollution we need to Control Carbon Emissions. Wide Spread use of Solar Power is also the Need of the Hour.

But these two countries have about a third of the word’s population. The statistics cannot always be analysed in terms of absolute numbers. They have to take reative factors into consideration
Corrupt quit India
We should have more trees, scattered population. Congestion of population at one place and scaricity if trees causes more pollution.
Very notorious reputation.

bcoz west is establishing their manufacturing units in these 2 countries to reduce pollution in their respective countries
Don’t worry there are too many of us in both the countries.
