haze in malaysia, singapore

5 Oct

i london 6.05pm raining 17.8C monday 2015

it’s been raining practically the whole day today in london. I welcome it, but that is because i consider it as just nature doing its own thing to keep a balance in the environment, and maintaining the ecology of this country. and i have more reason to be thankful for this rain when i read in this blog in penang about the very bad haze that is the worst one.

most people have forgotten why this haze happens every year. it is because of the underground fires in indonesia. fires like this are common and occurs elsewhere in the world.  this fire has been burning for a long time, and gets dampened during the raining season , but still smouldering, except  the rains have soaked into the ground and so kept the fires in check. but once the rainy season is over and the land dries out, the fires comes back with a vengence, and appear overground. there is really nothing anyone can do about it, these fires can burn for years and years. people blame the farmers etc, but really it is a permanent fire underground that is the cause of it.

it is amazing that fires can burn underground for ages, it goes against all logic, because where do they get the oxygen to burn? but it does. i suppose u could say it is one of the wonders of nature. but the haze makes living there very difficult.

      i m surprised that people in malaysia or singpore not told of it, instead they all get angry at the indonesians accusing them of not doing anything. the fact is nobody can do anything about it.

        Yes, they all blame Indonesia for not doing anything at all. Then, they said gov wanted to send hercules to help put off the fire and being rejected by the Indon. But I personally think the haze is really bad to the point of becoming hazardous to ppl heath. It just pop up every year, sometime it disappears in few days never this bad thou.
