2013 Haze in Malaysia...

Assalamualaikum & Good day Y'alls!

How are you guys doing? Hope you guys are doing fine and are in good health despite the hazy weather. Please wear your mask when you're outdoor... We can't see the dust particles, but they are there in the air... If we keep collecting them in our lungs, maybe we don't get sick now, but we might in 10 or 20 years...

Age do that to our body you know...

To smokers... isn't the haze enough? Do you still have to smoke?!
If you still do, please do not do it in public. Have some respect & compassion for other people for God's sakes!

Anyway, when I look at the haze... all I can think of is, how we human can do so much harm to our environment... to our Earth... to Earthlings...

As if all the carbon monoxide from the cars we drive (I'm included), all the CFC we released from our homes & buildings and all the pesticides haven't done enough harm to our Earth...

The ozone layers are still not thin enough! It's still protecting the Earthlings from the harmful UV rays! There must be something else that we can do to to expedite the process!

I know! Open burning! Lot's of open burning!
The thick smokes will cover the sky in 3 countries! So, much carbon monoxide! That's it! So much harm can be done! From just a simple action!

We want to blame our neighbour for the smoky sky... and our neighbour fought back saying that companies from our country also to be blamed for the open burning.

All the fingers pointing here and there... still no solution was found. The smokes will come every year... we will fight and blame each other every year for the same reason. We are a sad bunch of people...

I'm rambling... but I don't have any idea on how to solve this problem... except maybe one...

Maybe our neighbour should pay us compensation when the open burning in their country causes the Air Pollution Index (API) in our country to reach the unhealthy level. I think, this way our neighbour will impose a more strict rules to the relevant companies (whether it is their own or their neighbours').

Other than that... we need to do more research on how to handle the plantation industries so that it is more environmental friendly and good for the economy. Homosapiens are creatures with the best brain. We should be able to find a solution to this (once we stop blaming each other).

Before I go... a few photos of the hazy skies taken when I was on the road last Sunday.

Oh how I miss the blue sky... the sunshine... the RAIN!
