Oxygen Mag

November 14 · Issue #26 · View online

Handpicked stories for people who care about clean air.

🙏 *cough* Namaste! *cough*
It’s Amrit from New Delhi. I wish I had some good news for you today, but it’s Hell Week here in Delhi and for most of North India too. Air pollution is through the roof.
I believe that clean air is a basic human right, and it’s going to take a metaphorical village to tackle this global challenge of air pollution. Weeks like this in Delhi remind us that it seems like things are bound to get much much worse before they get better. 
In this issue of Oxygen Mag, I curate some must-read stories and commentary on the air pollution crisis in Delhi.
