Newkerala.com. The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has launched a $500,000 effort to help control pollution in India, the US embassy said in a statement here Tuesday. Releasing a report on air pollution in India, the EPA urged Indias environmentalists to take advantage of its initiative, Integrated Environment Strategies (IES).
This is part of a larger US-India partnership to mitigate the effects of climate change, the statement said.
The report stresses the need for improved transportation and the use of alternative fuels like natural gas, since the air here shows high levels of airborne particles from vehicles and industries.
Hmm. Sounds like we should stress the same things here.
