Air Pollution in Tamil Nadu

The long term effects of these can cause devastation to the future generations. Will the TamilNadu Government please make a note of this important issue?

An air sample from the open garbage burning site in Perungudi, on the city's outskirts and positioned along the much-hyped IT corridor, contained the highest number of chemicals found in any Indian sample.


As many as 27 chemicals, including carcinogenic ones, at levels 34,782 and 2,360 times higher than those considered safe for residential air by the US Environmental Protection Agency were found in this sample.
