Singapore, KL get haze respite – Join the discussion

Reading Time: 1 minute

singapore-haze1The Pollution Standard Index (PSI) for both Peninsular Malaysia and Singapore on June 26 read levels below hazardous levels for the first time since a thick smog smothered the countries last week.

Greater Kuala Lumpur’s air condition moved from “unhealthy” to “moderate,” while Nilai and Port Klang remained the most dangerous in the region, measuring 148 and 140, respectively, according to national readings.

Singapore remained in the “moderate” zone, with overall readings for the city-state coming to 57-61.

The fires that created the immense haze, however, have continued to rage on in Sumatra, leaving authorities in Singapore worrying that the haze could return in force.

Satellite images on June 24 showed that there were at least three times as many “hotspots” on the Indonesian island that previously thought, offering up a substantially greater task for the countries as water bombs drop on the allegedly artificially created blazes.

Who do you think should be held responsible for the hazardous haze?
