VISAKHAPATNAM: The 100 Months Climate Protection Movement is organising a photo exhibition at the Youth Hostel on the Beach Road here on Sunday to explain to the Vizagites the high level of pollution they are exposed to.

According to the Central Pollution Control Board's environmental assessment of industrial clusters, Visakhapatnam is one of the most polluted cities in India. CPCB's recent pollution index showed that Visakhapatnam was one of the 24 areas in which pollutants were being released in huge quantities. The city also tops the list in Andhra Pradesh. In the background of this alarming situation, the 100 Months Climate Protection Movement is making efforts to sensitise the people on this issue through documentaries, photo exhibitions, distributing literature and other forms of publicity.

CPCB stated that Visakhapatnam's air, water, earth pollution levels are increasing day by day.
