ASEAN Agreement on Transboundary Haze Pollution

Indonesia forest fire

The PSI has hit 190 as of 19 June, 8pm. 290 as of 19 June, 9pm.

So I got a teensy bit worried and for some reason thought that googling “haze” might make me feel better.

And I stumbled onto its wikipedia page, and found this

Since 1991, haze has been a particularly acute problem in Southeast Asia, Indonesian forest fires burnt to clear land being the reason. In response to the 1997 Southeast Asian haze, the ASEAN countries agreed on a Regional Haze Action Plan (1997). In 2002, all ASEAN countries except Indonesia signed the Agreement on Transboundary Haze Pollution, but the pollution is still a problem today.

  2. Thank you so much for that gif. It made my day as that is exactly how I have felt. THREE round trips today by scooter from West Singapore to Clark Quay and I’m pretty sure I have lung cancer now. Not to mention a heavy layer of soot on my skin.
