A medley of gases that spew from
automobiles pollute our atmosphere, and are fast making the environment a
place unfit for living. A combination of unburnt Hydrocarbons, Carbon
Monoxide, Oxides of Nitrogen combine to spread an obnoxious mixture.
When in excess quantity, these tend to cause automobile pollution.
Within a certain range they are acceptable, but when the engine is not tuned
properly, or a vehicle uses obsolete technology, or the quality of fuel is
not good, all these result in a higher level of emission of all the gases.
It's a long, dusty road ahead. Pollution has cast its ominous shadow across
the length and breadth of India; there is smog everywhere. It is a choking
sensation every time one ventures out into the streets. Delhi is one of the
most polluted cities of the world, with Mumbai coming a close second.
As part of our efforts to spread awareness and contribute our mite, we tell
you how each of us can do our bit to stop this hazard from creating more
havoc than it already has. The time to act is Now.
