Jain is an 18 year old boy who had an asthma attack because he was suffering from low levels of oxygen in his blood. He could die but the doctors put him on a nebulizer. That wouldn't save him so his parents and relatives would have to prepare for the worst."I cannot just run away from it. I am dying a slow death, I know it and I live in a constant fear of what will happen. I am looking at a bleak future.", Jain said. He is one out of 20 million Delhi residents forced to breathe the most dangerous polluted air in the world. Even Delhi's High Court says this city is like "living in a gas chamber".
We as humans can conserve energy by turning odd lights,computers, and electric appliances when where not using them. Limit driving by using transportation like biking and walking. Keep your car well checked for less use oil and filters. Only run dishwasher and clothes when washers are full and use ecofriendly cleaners. Gasoline and diesel fuels should be more cleaner and natural gas industries will have extensive rules to reduce environmental impacts. Continue air quality progress that is being made to keep under current standards. If we do this then people like Jain can live a better life than before because of the wide world change.
