Smog Alarm

More than 180 hotspots. Or more than 200? In dry season farmers traditionally burn fields and clear some forest to make room for the next harvest. I am sure these small farming coorperatives are not behin these fires you can see from space that cloud Singapore and Malaysia in deep smog since last week. PSI levels reached 400, masks are out of stock and Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore accuse themselves of harbouring the companies behind all this. Anyway ... it's very likely the same culprits behind it and us being responsible. Buy less products made from palmoil. Nope, this is not turning into an eco blog but feeling for the first time how global warming and deforestation smells and how it chokes you is terrifying. Photos in the Singapore Year Two Section including some other stuff.
