Air Pollution


Pollution levels in Delhi-NCR high after Diwali. Could have been worse without the ban on sale of firecrackers -- CSE

  • Analysis of air quality data from 13 air quality monitoring stations of Central Pollution Control Board, Delhi Pollution Control Committee and Indian Meteorological Department shows that from very poor category during the day the pollution built up very rapidly during the night hitting emergency level.

Conference and Exhibition on Emissions Monitoring

First on-road testing for emissions in India proves diesel SUVs and cars emit far more toxic gases than petrol cars

One diesel SUV emits as much toxic nitrogen oxide as 25-65 small petrol cars
CSE draws attention to the study. Asks – Is India falling in the grip of Europe-style ‘dieselgate’?

On World Environment Day, CSE releases analysis of how India has warmed over the years - from 1901 till 2017

  • First animated climate spiral showing the warming of India 

  • Annual mean temperature in India has increased by 1.2 degrees C since the beginning of the 20th century. 

  • 2016 was second warmest year on record with temperature of 1.26 degrees C higher than  

  • Winters (Jan-Feb) of 2017 was hottest in recorded history with temperature of 2.95 degrees higher than the baseline.  

What has GST got to do with air pollution?

A lot it seems, says Centre for Science and Environment

Government plans on electric vehicles are non-starters: CSE

Analysis of the first phase of FAME (Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Hybrid and Electric Vehicle) programme says the agenda of electro-mobility is going nowhere. It has only pushed mild diesel hybrid cars.
