In Peak Planet, host Karthik Ganesan deliberates on perilous everyday sustainability issues - taps running dry, toxic air, unreliable power supply, traffic snarls, and extreme climatic changes - that affect each Indian. He dissects the complexities through evidence-backed information. In the first season, Karthik deep dives into air pollution, which turns 'public enemy number 1' around this time of the year. Through four episodes, Peak Planet will take you through the evolution of the public discourse on air pollution, the challenges in measuring air quality and gathering data, the reasons behind bad air quality in Indian cities and how the authorities have been unable to mitigate the sources of pollution. Peak Planet is presented by The Council on Energy, Environment and Water, one of South Asia’s leading not-for-profit policy research institutions.
