Remember when this happened?
The U.S. government says candy imported from Pakistan called Toxic Waste Nuclear Sludge is not safe to eat. Who would have guessed?
Shocking in a country ranked as the 2nd dirtiest in the world where 128,000 people die due to pollution every year.
But the nice jihadis harboring Osama bin Laden would like to talk to us about pollution.
The world’s richest countries have not done enough to combat global warming, Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan said on Friday, adding his country had done more than any other in the world to combat rising emissions relative to its economic means.

“Has the developed world done enough: The answer is no,” Khan said in an interview with Reuters at his official residence in Islamabad. “Emissions are from the rich countries. And I think they know they haven’t done enough.”
Pakistan burns cow dung for fuel. We don’t do that. Maybe when Jihadistan stops using animal waste campfires, they can talk to us about “emissions”.
Cow dung will save the day for Pakistan. In fact, Pakistan’s Minister of State for Climate Change Zartaj Gul has already taken the baton from PM Khan and is now proposing to power buses with cow dung, that too with zero emission.
Meanwhile, Pakistan is overrun with actual pollution. None of the global warming carbon nonsense, but the stuff that makes you cough till you pass out.
Pakistan has been ranked as the second-most polluted country by IQAir global air quality report.
SAMAA TV reported that last year, the PM2.5 concentration in Pakistan was over five times more than the World Health Organization’s (WHO) recommended air quality level.
The particulate matter in Pakistan stands at 59, falling in the unhealthy category and over five times higher than WHO’s recommended level of 10 10ug per metre cube.
“Pakistan has shown numbers that have come in very poorly in the past, with many of its megacities creating vast amounts of smoke, haze, and deadly smog that permeates the air,” said the World Air Quality Report 2020.
IQAir also said that more than 20 per cent of deaths in Pakistan can be linked to the negative impacts of air pollution exposure. Experts say that the air in the country can be lethal for people with asthma and result in healthy children developing the disease.
Clearly our fault for not doing enough.
