India’s Supreme Court Can Help Country Prioritize Pollution Reduction

New York Times: India’s Air Pollution Emergency
“…More people die of asthma in India than anywhere else in the world. Indoor air pollution, mostly from cooking fires, and outdoor air pollution are the third and fifth leading causes of death in India. … The best hope for reining in air pollution lies with India’s Supreme Court. It has handed down a series of landmark environmental decisions … So far, pollution has not been an issue ahead of general elections in May. The Supreme Court could help make it one” (2/13).
