worried on Apr 29, 2018:
When I am in punjab to visit relatives, i have no allergies, and as soon as i enter back in karachi, I get all symptoms of allergy. I am making my dust sensor based on Sharp optical dust sensor, and it says dust concentration is around 190 ug/m3 which is too high (should in around 10s or 20s, ill research more on this)

I think it's not just the poor or the governments fault, it's everyone's fault. If it's not your fault then stop using transportation vehicles, I cannot stop from using my car but I also don't deny the fact that it's someone else creating the pollution. I know I'm a equal part of what's happening in Karachi today. A average car creates 9 kg of carbon monoxide (Air Pollution) from 3 litres of gas. The water isn't clean because of all the harsh chemicals from industrial area and the garbage collected in the water.


Steps to make Karachi better

1) Start walking more instead of using vehicles

2) Stop littering

Little things like this can help Karachi become a little better, PLEASE SHARE!!
