Source: The Times of India, Date: February , 2015
On the new
government’s first day at work, Greenpeace India, an environmental NGO,
released findings of its air quality monitoring survey that highlighted how
poor the air is inside five prominent schools in the capital. In its statement,
Greenpeace campaigners said dealing with poor air quality should be an
immediate priority for the new government. Greenpeace India used a portable
device —PDR1500— to monitor air quality for about 15 minutes on the school
premises. Real-time monitoring data from all five schools revealed PM2.5 (fine,
respirable particles) to be very high.
