Air Pollution Crisis Causes Schools to Close in India's Capital
On Wednesday, authorities closed schools and shut down several coal-burning power plants in India's capital of New Delhi as air pollution has overtaken the city.
The extreme measures mark how the dirty air crisis has reached a new critical level in India, a country which depends largely on coal for the country's power.
The New Delhi state government is considering a weekend lockdown to reduced air pollution and traffic in the city. They are awaiting a decision from India's Supreme Court on the lockdown and may have an answer by Nov. 24th.
