Pollution on the rise as norms flouted 20.8.2014 Asian Age: Delhi
A study by an NGO concluded that industrial pollution in the capital has increased due to flouting of norms by industrial units in Delhi. The study by Toxic Link, an environmental NGO, also gave details on how the groundwater has been contaminated by waste from these industries. As per the NGO, in its study titled “On the Edge,” there are more than 18 potential hotspots which release toxic pollutants. A few of these locations are Badli, Mandloi, Samaypur, Anand Parbat, Najafgarh and Mayapuri. As per the report, the level of pollution caused by these industries is unacceptable.

Revolution in use of resources in order to meet demand 17.8.2014 SFGate: Business & Technology
For years, pundits have warned that the world's soaring population and expanding middle class will usher in an age of scarcity. In their new book, "Resource Revolution," they argue that information technology and advanced materials science, combined with new business models, will enable companies and societies to do far more with far less. It will be, they claim, a jump in productivity and efficiency greater than anything seen before, as well as a major business opportunity. Heck, who teaches resource economics at Stanford University, and Rogers, a director of the McKinsey & Co. consulting firm, spoke with The Chronicle about why they feel the doomsayers are wrong. The good news is, in agriculture, we have a set of technologies where we can get much higher yields with the water that's available. In municipal water systems, we can use technology to find leaks in very old water systems and take those leaks out. [...] with the dramatic increases in fuel economy we're seeing, from electrification and ...
