&nbsp Pollution levels in developing countries have increased dramatically over the years along with economic growth and India is no different.
  Two decades of rapid urbanization and exponential population growth have propelled India to the <a href="https://www.worldatlas.com/articles/20-countries-with-the-highest-gdp-growth-in-the-world.html">top 3 countries for GDP growth</a>. While economic growth has lifted millions out of poverty, the fuel needed to keep the economic engine running has been overwhelmingly dirty coal. With abundant local supplies, coal has been the preferred source of energy in the country for decades.
  One of the biggest problems with fossil fuels is pollution, primarily air pollution. To keep the lights on, India burns millions of tons of coal at the many large coal-fired power plants which dot the country. The high levels of pollution also come from cars, dust storms, fires, burning wood and more.
