Speaking of haze, I think everyone should be familiar with it.

A few years ago, when the smog was serious, Beijing’s friends greeted each day, asking What is PM2.5 today... If it is more than 200, no one wants to go out.

At that time, I felt that the smog was really terrible...

In the past week, the Air Quality Index (AQI) of the Indian capital, New Delhi, has reached its highest level in history. The readings directly burst the table, and no one knows how much.

A lot of observatories give a value of 999. Given 999 is not because the value is 999, but this is the maximum value detected by the instrument...

The Air Quality Index (AQI), like PM2.5, is also a measure of air quality. The value is similar to PM2.5, below 50 is good, even more than 100 is polluted.

" My air filter In an effort to overload, I have never been so sympathetic to an object"

Many students may think that this is because the Indian industry is catching up, and now the smog is The pain of industrialization must pass. Was it not foggy in London, England?

If this is the case, the Indian government is expected to wake up. The facts are very cruel.

So, this smog in New Delhi is not Because the city develops industry, but because the countryside surrounds the city. It can be said that it is very magical.

< On the Internet, Western netizens are very shocked: Why do these people still use such backward farming methods, why the government does not care about the situation, why do these people do not consider the environment when doing things? How can Indians be so lazy?

In fact, it doesn't matter if the peasants are slashing and burning. The reason is very simple: a fire is the cheapest way.

If you want to clean the farmland like farming in Europe and America, then you need a tractor or other professional equipment. There is no cost to a fire. In addition, fire can also increase soil fertility, remove pests and so on. If farming is used, farmers are required to additionally apply fertilizer/pesticide to the land.

In the absence of government regulation and the fact that everyone is poor, slash-and-burn is the only option.

Of course, the development of industry is also smog One of the reasons students. India's industry is currently relatively junior, and the main energy source is coal-fired. This is a production mode that is much more serious than oil pollution. With the gradual development of Indian industry, smog should be more serious.

The final result is not just New Delhi. In major cities across India, and even in villages, smog has become sore to the point of being unbreathable.

At present, the air pollution problem in India is not likely to be resolved immediately.

Air pollution in New Delhi is also the case in recent years. Because of the population growth in India in recent years, the demand for food in the entire country is growing. In order to eat, more and more people are investing in agricultural production. They take the most primitive and savage farming methods, just to extract the last resources of the land...

The AQI index of the New Delhi burst is a by-product of this phenomenon.

At present, many Indians have begun to organize demonstrations and demand that the government respond more actively to environmental pollution: Stolen slash-and-burn, industrial emissions, etc.

But it’s obvious that the root cause of environmental problems lies in the level of economic development. It is impossible to change qualitatively by changing one or two laws by the government.

There is a theory in economics called the Kuznett curve. This theory says that when an economy is very backward, its impact on the environment is very low. Because people have limited influence on the environment, such as some African countries.

When an economy is very developed, their impact on the economy is also very low. Because they have enough motivation and money to use green energy.

So only when a country starts to develop, but not yet When it becomes a developed country, its environmental impact will reach its maximum.

Consider that India is in the early stages of development, the worst environment may not have arrived...
