  • Gurugram World’s Most Polluted City 6 Others Indian Cities In Top 10

The ranking - a one of its kind study that relies on ground-based sensors located in 3,000 cities from 73 countries - was compiled by IQAir Group, a manufacturer of air-monitoring sensors as well as purifiers and environmentalist group Greenpeace. PM2.5 pollutants can enter deep inside the lungs and bloodstream of humans and have an adverse effect on their health.

While the Asian economic powerhouse still accounted for 22 of the 50 most polluted cities worldwide, its capital, Beijing, showed a marked improvement on 2017 levels of pollution, with the average annual presence of particulates falling by more than 13 percent previous year.

Greenpeace released the latest air pollution data today with a warning that seven million people will die around the world over the next year because of air pollution. It noted that although South Asian countries and China were the worst affected, air pollution is a global issue. Gurugram in 2018 too had topped the list in pollution levels.

"Beijing is showing us that it can be done, as have many other cities in Europe and the USA over past decades".

Seven of the top 10 polluted cities in 2018 were in India, including Ghaziabad, Faridabad, Bhiwandi, Noida, Patna and Lucknow.

The six-episode final season of Game of Thrones debuts Sunday, April 14 at 9 PM ET on HBO. "I promised to fight for the living". HBO on Tuesday published the first official trailer for the eighth and final season of fantasy drama series Game of Thrones .

India, world's fastest-growing major economy, makes up 22 of the top 30 most polluted cities, with 5 in China, 2 in Pakistan and 1 in Bangladesh.

The world's most polluted capital cities have been revealed - and Delhi has been exposed as the worst.

The AirVisual and Greenpeace index was based on the quantity of PM2.5, registered a year ago in tens of thousands of air-quality monitoring stations around the world. "Common contributors of pollutants in South Asia include vehicle exhaust, open crop and biomass burning, industrial emissions and coal combustion", explains the report.

But 64 percent of the cities surveyed exceeded this guideline. The World Air Quality report was collected from 3000 and more cities around the globe.

"Air pollution steals our livelihoods and our futures, but we can change that". According to independent clean air analyst Sunil Dahiya, the state needs to strengthen its ambient air quality monitoring network.
