Proper resolutions for the rising pollution in India?
India is the most fascinating country with a history and culture to magnetize eternally in time. I would like only to share colorful pictures and transfer us in this mythical land.
In pain of heart, I touch the subject wounding literally the country and downgrades citizenship health and vast nature, the uncontrolled pollution.
We were discussing with Yosuf Mirza, Certified Digital Marketer, who lives in India, on the pollution subject, what can be done, our insight on this. We can only speak of India’s beauty and culture, close our eyes into the problem, as tourists, or focus best to India we love.
On a global stage, environmental concerns have become an issue that asks for some addressing, and proper consideration across every walk in life.
Under such watch groups as the United Nations and its bodies like the World Health Organization insist that the entire humanity is at a very critical stage wherein proper measures should be implemented across all the countries across the globe.
India has already been deemed as one of the most polluted countries in the entire world with its state already in the path of rampant degradation across the board.
In the 21st century, however, the question remains of this ancient country with its everlasting clash between the old and the new, and growth that seems unstoppable, and at some point in time will explode into something, which can only be predicted.
The current state of the land, water, and air in India: The case of pollution is spread across all the aspects of resources that are present, and largely covered in terms of shaping the living and the dead. India has garnered the country with the third highest levels of air contaminants of every kind. Its major cities are the main sources deriving a great deal of air pollution from the many industries, vehicles and other human emissions all around.
The Government must take actions by encouraging carpooling, use of bicycles and public transportation means, a motive for cars operating with gas, bigger trucks without crossing the cities, something common for Europe too, severe waste control and not uncontrolled burning of garbage in dump sites, domestic utilization of solar power.
turning planet-heating emissions to baking soda
There are already companies projecting their experiments through an ecology approach, like Carbon Cleaning Solutions, turning planet-heating emissions to baking soda, and could lock up 60,000 tonnes of CO2 a year. Goal is to decarbonize industry by separating CO2 for storage and industrial reuse from emissions sources including flue gas, chemical and refining off-gases and renewable-fuel feed gases.
It needs sponsorship and investment in such innovative companies who have the will and will succeed to offer the formulas on patenting controlled or innocent emissions.
Similar is the case for the water. Water pollution in India can be steadfastly observed as being at a state that needs a serious large scale intervention. Numerous rivers flowing across the subcontinent have already become ‘toxic drains’, which would require several decades to be properly cleaned if proper awareness across the industrial and residential complexes.
Over 100 Indian cities dump unfiltered sewage into the Holy River of Ganges. Other sources of water pollution include agriculture operations and small factories along the rivers and lakes of India. Fertilizers and pesticides used in agriculture in northwest end up in rivers, lakes, and groundwater. Flooding during monsoons worsens India’s water pollution problem, as it washes and moves all sorts of solid garbage and contaminated soils into its rivers and shores.
The land is also at a similar state with the rising population decreasing the chance of proper addressing of land pollution with toxic waste from every walk of life.
Rapid urbanization caused a buildup of heavy metals in the soil of cities like Ghaziabad, and these metals are being absorbed through contaminated vegetables.
agricultural sector can contribute in rectifying the current damage if supported by the state to move to organic cultivation.
If farmers wish for good yields, the soil does not need chemical inputs, it needs organic content. The soil will be healthy only if we can put back leaves from the trees and animal waste. This is not only good for the river it is also good for the soil, the farmer’s income and for public health.
Incentivizing farmers to shift to organic cultivation is therefore not just a necessity for our rivers, it is also essential to ensure the food security of the nation and the wellbeing of hundreds of millions of farmer
The State must invest in an improved Waste Collection and Segregation system across the country.
Closed trucks storing recycled materials and Composting Farms are needed on a wide scale from domestic composting to the municipality of each region. Improvements are being made as some cities are beginning to build sustainable waste management programs, however, this needs to be incentivized and organized on a larger scale by the State.
The problem of population and other socio-political issues: Population in India is well on the track of soon becoming the largest in the world, which presents its own set of specific problems. As the number of people continues to increase, so does the pressure upon the available resources and opportunities.
Simply speaking, the population is growing at a specific exponential curve, which cannot be properly addressed by the authorities through any means. This would lead to a greater section of the population moving down below the poverty lines without any hope of education with regards to the existing social issues in the country. Even the educated middle class would not be able to raise issues regarding pollution, as they would be left to be dealt with other more concentrated social factors like schooling, employment, pay, etc.
To be frank, Yosuf says, there is a need to bring about a great deal of change, which would itself transform the fabric of society itself at large.
it would not take a single day to tackle toxicity, however, and would be reflected across all walks of life at large.
The National Clean Air Program (NCAP) claims to cut pollution in the 102 worst affected cities by 30% until 2024. The environment Ministry must prove dedication in seriously implementing and strengthening plan measures.
Currently, all efforts have been inadequate and poorly implemented, largely because of a lack of resources and political will.
stringent laws and strong will to be enforced, is needed more than ever
Starting from the very top to every particular’s tasks done by people should concern as to what would be the effect upon the environment at large.
“The eventual result would be to establish and correct the state in a step-by-step fashion through which change and reform across the three interconnected platforms social, economic and political spectrum would gradually transform into something wholeheartedly positive. ” Co-Author Yosuf Mirza
