US President Donald Trump called India's air filthy in the final Presidential debate for US Elections 2020. He also claimed that the USA has the lowest amount of carbon emissions in the world and that walking out of the Paris Accord was a great idea. Is India's air filthy? BOOM Explains. Anumita Roy Chowdhury, Executive Director, Research And Advocacy, Centre For Science And Environment, says that two statements are true here - one, India has a big struggle in containing air pollution and two, Donald Trump is in denial of climate change. The new State of Global Air Report 2020 states that since 2010, particulate matter related deaths have gone up by 61% in India.

India is in a state of emergency due to air pollution and we are nowhere close to tackling this problem.
