    I can't imagine living in a big Indian city.

    The problem with Capitalism is that humans run it.

        There is nothing about India that is on my bucket list.

          That's what happens after decades with no EPA.

            Or, with 1,300,000,000 people. And, probably that many cows.

              Someone tried to bribe me earlier this year with an all expenses paid trip to India in exchange for my business.

                  My boss is Indian and he immigrated in the 1960s. Even he doesn't like going back.

                    The Ministry is a joke that is staffed by energy insiders and caters carte blanche to their coal industry.

                    Their fairly new EPA has a Herculean task ahead of it.

                      So...your claim above implies that government is the answer (i.e. EPA required to prevent pollution) but then you post an article about how a separate extragovernmental watchdog group had to be set up by India's supreme court because the government was not doing the job?

                          Effective government is an answer. Not the private sector or a sham governmental body that is controlled by the private sector.

                          In the U.S., we used to get acid rain. Then we created the EPA and no more acid rain.

                            Couldn't one argue that effective corporations are the answer, and dismiss the bad actors as ineffective ones in bed with big government?

                                Effective India coal companies have raped their environment. That's what they do.

                                If there is a environmentally-conscious India coal company, they're far outnumbered... and in the wrong business to begin with.
