Delhi smog causes unprecedented flight delays

Delhi smog causes unprecedented flight delays
Written by Shubham Dwivedi

Smog level in Delhi is close to hazardous and on some days it is more than apocalyptic. 2017 has literally been the defining year for climate calamity and absolutely nothing is able to control it, especially in India. With the order of Chief Minister, they fired anti-smog guns in the atmosphere but it seems to have backfired or certainly didn’t help. Level of mercury is rising on alarm rates inside the body of people who live in Delhi-NCR region. Climate authorities have given their reports about uncontrollable atmospheric changes which have gone random enough to not be predicted anymore. If this continues than soon enough scientists won’t be able to issue pre-alerts regarding cyclones and Tsunami which will result in unfathomable loss of life.

In the spell-binding conditions of this catastrophe airport authorities were forced to cancel some of domestic and international flights as the visibility distance above Delhi airport is close to nothing now. Time of peak winters is going on and Delhi already faces enough fog every year for flights to get suspended and mixed smoke with it has made it almost impossible t fly during early morning hours. Morning hours is the time when the smog is at it’s maximum and it became quite a task to clear the visibility on the runway itself and flying was clearly not an option.

New born babies are facing it the hardest as they have never really breath in a clean atmosphere and are directly exposed to such pathetic conditions. Government needs to take some actions against this as breathing is more important than elections and politics. Who are they going to ask for votes if there is nobody there alive and future generations might start dropping dead merely because of air they will breathe. People with issues like asthma, cancer are looking for a premature demise given the condition that they don’t remove their oxygen masks for one single second and stay only inside the house.
