Trends of CO2 Emissions in India, Linkages with Energy Consumption, Transport and Economic Growth
Air pollution is a burning issue in all over the world. Due to increase industrialization, urbanization, transportation and housing activities, India’s air pollution is continuously rising. As a result of air pollution related many health problems are faced by the society such as a respiratory and cardiovascular disease. Today, energy consumption is the best indicator for economic growth in any developing country, especially in BRICS nations which are totally focused on the development as well as they are ignoring the environmental quality which is affected by the development process. Energy consumption in terms of fossil fuel is highly responsible for increasing Greenhouse Gas Emissions specifically Co2 emissions in India. This paper is trying to analysis the relationship between transport development, energy consumption, economic growth and CO2 emission scenario in India.
