What can I do?

I recently found many problems in Tamil Nadu that can be fixed. The pollution level in Chennai is intolerable. When I am in Chennai, I get allergic bronchitis, due to pollution and I cough incessantly. This is a serious health risk.

I see one major pollutant:
MTC buses pumping toxic fumes into air, directly on people's faces.
I believe that is of higher priority than distributing free television sets. But, even with the amazing amount of money that Chennai Corporation gets, nothing has been done about that. What can I do to change government buses? I am not living in Chennai right now, but if you are, why are putting up with this?

What can I do to change? Some please tell me. Write petitions? Talk to the Transport minister? Who is the transport minister?

What can I do? Please tell me, I will do it!

Chennai may be bad... but check out Bangalore! What makes Chennai worse is the heat all year round.

Anyway, going by the exemplary Delhi example, I think natural gas is the way to go. And should be soon enough! Sometimes, I wonder why these changes are brought about when the water rises right over the neck.

Good job!
Most of us just keep complaining but take no action.
