I have been experiencing haze in Singapore annually. This must happen once a year since the time when I was a teenager.....why must it be so, aren't there a permanent solution to end it once and for all? The discomfort increases once the PSI keeps climing up. Tonight , it has since shot up to more than 300, hazardous level . I just read in online news that schools for primary and secondary levels will be closed tommorrow. This is rather unheard of in our culture to close schools as major exams are coming up soon.

This haze has been here now for more than a week. Forests fires must occur annually in nearby Indonesia whether due to works of man ( to clear forests ) and together with the heat of our weather to accelarate the problems caused by it. Extending aids to Indonesia to put out the fire by Singapore has since been rejected. I also don't know why yearly...it is often this rejection whether wanting to be diplomatically friendly by one side....but the relationship still put both sides at arm's length.
These fires has increased the surroundings temperature, just think about the amount of carbon dioxide ( greenhouse gas ) contributed by it.
Please, something has to be done to stop all these going on which hurt our climate too. Forests are destroyed and these are precious resources to protect our Earth in the long-run for science reasons behind it. Development has to be sustainable and our health must be protected.It's Time for Action on Climate Change. Join Us!
