  • Pollution In India's Capital New Delhi Surges To 'Severe' And 'Hazardous' Levels

On Monday, the smog reportedly exposed people to as much as 24 times the recommended limits for dangerous particles, but unlike in many heavily-polluted Chinese cities, it is reportedly rare to see locals taking measures to reduce their exposure. The World Health Organization warns that India's smog problem extends far beyond the capital, as the nation of 1.3 billion has 14 out of the 15 most polluted cities in the world.
