Haze attack

Singapore is suffering from a serious haze problem, the result of Indonesian forest fires! Singapore's air is now "hazardous"' as the Pollutant Standards Index (PSI) soared to 321 at 10 pm yesterday, the worst reading ever in the country's history.

I've got all the allergy problems due to the haze, I can't believe I have to breath in the hazardous air for another week. Why do we have to suffer this from the despicable acts of illegal forest burning? I can see the fragment of ashes floating in the air, I can smell heavy smoke in my throat, it's like inhaling poison! I get watery eyes, running nose, sore throat and itches all over my skin!!!

I feel extremely frustrated about the situation! I couldn't do anything about it!!!

Shouldn't we protect our Earth from pollution and save the Ozone? Burning forest is burning life, destroying nature is destroying ourselves and no one should be allowed to kill our Earth for a living!!! This must be considered a serious crime, a terrorist act, whoever's involved in this incident must get the highest punishment!!! It's been years but the Indonesian government should take tougher actions against those responsible for the illegal burning!!! Why could them let this happen every year??? Do something already to stop this happening again!!!

P/s: The PSI readings reaching a record-breaking level of 371 at 1 pm today - highest reading so far. Literally breathless!!!

Hi Bear Bear! Long time since I visited I know. Gomen nasai! Trust you are all well - other than the darn air pollution.

I used to live in a town in California called Redlands. It was near the mountains and every day in summer we could sit outside and watch as a gigantic "bubble" of smog moved across our view of the mountains until we could no longer see them any more through the smelly brown haze! It smelled like chlorine - sort of like an indoor swimming pool.

Sorry to go on so long, but yes, why cannot we humans get together on saving our precious planet? I guess because some very powerful people profit from trashing it. :(

Hello Pandabonium! I hope you are doing well too.

I've never seen a gigantic "bubble" of smog before but the haze alone already gave me swollen and watery eyes!!! Today, the PSI remaining in the "Hazardous" range with a reading of 401. I can't even begin to describe the level of frustration felt.
