Nope, not kidding!

Yup, it's official! India's pollution has now surpassed China's notorious pollution level. According to Greenpeace's recent analysis of NASA's satellite data,  in 2015, the average particular matter exposure was higher in India than in China.

According to Greenpeace "China's strong measures to curb pollution have contributed to the biggest year-on-year air quality improvement on record while in contrast, India's pollution levels continued a decade-long increase to reach the highest level on record".
