It seems you have taken my comment for its face value. Anyhow, Jananti(the ayatollah) was touring the city of Ahvaz after the revolution when he happened to pass through oil company neighborhood. Seeing its cleanliness and the great number of trees and beautiful lush yards, he is rumored to have later asked if the people living there ate grass!

Abarmard, I just noticed

Abarmard,

I just noticed the BBC report linked @ http://iranian.com/main/news/2011/09/27-0, in which the Iranian expert mentions dust storms from creeping deserts in various MidEast countries, esp. Iraq, as contributing significantly to the air pollution in nearby Iranian cities.  So perhaps various accounts of the WHO report should add this as a contributing factor.

Ahvaz pollution

by maghshoosh on

Abaramard,

The WHO's reports don't support your contention.   As indicated at the Huffington Post site, linked above, the WHO maintains that "heavy industry and low-quality vehicle fuel are the main causes of air pollution in this desert city of 1.3 million." The vehicle-fuel source must be mainly local.  The heavy industry must be a reference to the oil, petrochemical & metalurgical industries around ahvaz, although plausibly pollution from neighboring countries doesn't recognize borders.  In fact, the WHO's country map @ http://gamapserver.who.int/mapLibrary/Files/Maps/G... marks Iraq as providing no data for their study.  So, the WHO is identifying the main source of the studied air pollution in Ahvaz as being domestic.  (On the flip side, Iraqis have also complained of Iranian pollution, as in http://www.thenational.ae/news/worldwide/middle-ea... )

Rahmanian,

As far as the discussed air pollution is concerned, heavy industry and vehicle fuel are not considered hallmarks of the "Golden Islamic Age of 1400 years ago."  The present or the future are not always more desirable than the distant past.

IR Islamists

IR Islamists are taking the country back to the "Golden Islamic Age" of 1400 years ago! They are turning Iran into another Arabian Desert!!!

It's not Ahvaz fault

by Abarmard on

It's Iraq. All that dust is travelling from Iraq to Iran. Iran has already put forth Iran-Iraqi committee to resolve the issues. Iraq is suppose to plant and monitor the growing desert in their land, and they are not doing their part
