NO… PM2.5 is not reducing life expectancy in India

People will do anything but think.

You can read the article from the Tribune here.

You can read the referenced “study” here.

First, the “study” relies on EPA-propagated myth that PM2.5 kills, debunked in “Scare Pollution: Why and How to Fix the EPA.”

Next, the report makes the following claim:

Smoking prevalence in India is pretty high — 120 million smokers. Smoking (especially unfiltered) is a huge PM2.5 exposure.

When you say that outdoor air is killing more people than smoking (especially in a place like India), you have jumped the shark.
