Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions 11 to 15 :

Radically changing monsoon patterns, reduction in the winter rice harvest and a

quantum increase in respiratory diseases all part of the environmental doomsday

scenario which is reportedly playing out in South Asia. According to a United Nations

Environment Programme report, a deadly three-kilometer deep blanket of pollution

comprising a fearsome, cocktail of ash, acids, aerosols and other particles has enveloped

in this region. For India, already struggling to cope with a drought, the implication of

this are devastating and further crop failure will amount to a life and death question

for many Indians. The increase in premature deaths will have adverse social and

economic consequences and a rise in morbidities will place an unbearable burden on

our crumbling health system. And there is no one to blame but ourselves. Both official

and corporate India has always been allergic to any mention of clean technology. Most

mechanical two wheelers roll of the assembly line without proper pollution control

system. Little effort is made for R&D on simple technologies, which could make a vital

difference to people?s lives and the environment.

However, while there is no denying that South Asia must clean up its act, skeptics

might question the timing of the haze report. The Kyoto meet on climate change is just

two weeks away and the stage is set for the usual battle between the developing world

and the West, particularly the Unites States of America. President Mr. Bush has

adamantly refused to sign any protocol, which would mean a change in American

consumption level. U.N. environment report will likely find a place in the U.S. arsenal

as it plants an accusing finger towards controls like India and China. Yet the U.S.A.

can hardly deny its own dubious role in the matter of erasing trading quotas

Richer countries can simply buy up excess credits from poorer countries and

continue to pollute. Rather than try to get the better of developing countries, who

undoubtedly have taken up environmental shortcuts in their bid to catch up with the

West, the USA should take a look at the environmental profigacy, which is going on

within. From opening up virgin territories for oil exploration to relaxing the standards

for drinking water, Mr. Bush?s policies are not exactly beneficial, not even to America?s

interests. We realize that we are all in this together and that pollution anywhere should

be a global concern otherwise there will only be more tunnels at the end of the tunnel.
