247) Killing Me Softly in Cairo!

In a recent report, Cairo topped the world cities as being the MOST POLLUTED CITY in the whole world...I really cried coz this city doesnt deserve what we are doing, it doesnt deserve both its ignorant and arrogant inhabitants who turned it from one of the MOST BEAUTIFUL and DESIRED cities in the 2nd half of 19th century to what we have now...

Mohaly (very sad)


Cairo’s air pollution crisis has had a major impact on the health of its inhabitants and the environment. This problem is unfortunately endemic of many megacities of the third world. Air quality in Cairo has been reaching dangerous levels of lead, carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide, and suspended particulate matter concentrations due to decades of unregulated car emissions, urban industrial operations, and chaff and trash burning. Cairo’s geography and climate exacerbate these human sources of pollution. The level of air pollution in Cairo ranges from 10 to 100 times higher than the standards set by the World Health Organization. The Egyptian government, with the continued help of foreign nations, has begun to impose air quality standards among the relevant industries and instill a sense of accountability among its citizens.

قلت أكون أول تعليق على الموضوع المهم كلنا بنقول الحكومة وحشة بس رأيي إحنا وحشين احنا اللي جبنا الحكومة ونقدر نشيلها لو عايزين

التلوث والعادم والقاء المهملات مش حكومة ده شعب
القاهرة وجميع المحافظات نعم نبكي مصر في كل وقت يكفي انارة الشوارع في عز الظهر ولا حياة في من تنادي

نهاية ً حسبي الله ونعم الوكيل
ولك الله يا مصر

I had this article in my drafts for more than a month now. Will try to post it soon.
