DC Lahore criticized for firework display at event as Smog remains

Air pollution in Lahore is attributable to a number of factors including automobile and industrial emissions, smoke from brick kilns, burning agricultural leftovers, general debris, and dust from building projects.

Large-scale tree removal for construction of roads and buildings also contributes to air pollution. Temperature inversion causes a layer of warm air to be stopped from ascending, trapping air pollutants; this phenomenon exacerbates air pollution throughout the winter.

Pollution has long been a problem in Lahore. The health of people is being hurt by climate change. WHO research shows that 9 out of 10 people in low- and middle-income countries breathe air that is more polluted than what is allowed. Alarmingly, exposure kills 4.2 million of the 7 million people who die each year from air pollution and smog.

Doctors say that being around smog increases the risk of dying early from lung and heart problems. This is bad for pregnant women and their babies. The smog in Lahore is so bad that experts are calling it a killing agent.

In November, Lahore’s Air Quality Index (AQI) index reaches 500, which makes it hard for even fit people to breathe. Also, industrial cities like Karachi can’t control the pollution from factories, and more people are driving cars. This makes the air quality worse.

Why isn’t this scary situation making Lahore district management do something? Lahore, is experiencing very heavy pollution at the moment, but the Deputy Commissioner is taking great pride in the fact that he organised fireworks for a sports competition. People on Twitter have called him out on this action, as it will only add to the already high levels of smog.
