Singapore haze PSI hits 111


This picture from Reuters shows it all. This, my friends, is the haze that we in Singapore have to put up with, thanks in no small part to some bastards in Indonesia burning jungles for cultivation. The Pollutants Standard Index, a three-hour measurement of the haze in Singapore jumped to 111 at 1600 hrs today, thanks in no small part to these Indonesia land-owner bastards. According to this Channelnewsasia report:

SINGAPORE: The haze in Singapore climbed into the unhealthy range on Monday afternoon as the three-hour Pollutant Standards Index (PSI) hit 111 at 4pm.

The PSI reading first crossed the 100 mark at 3pm, when it was recorded at 105.

According to the National Environment Agency (NEA) website, PSI readings of 50 and below denote “good” air quality, “moderate” for 51-100 and “unhealthy” for 101-200.

The PSI reading has been rising steadily on Monday.

At 2pm, the PSI reading was 100, up from 95 at 1pm and 80 at noon.

The last time the PSI went over 100 was on October 21, 2010, when it hit 106.

Under NEA’s health advisory, those with existing heart or respiratory ailments should reduce physical exertion and outdoor activity while the general population should reduce vigorous outdoor activity when the PSI reading reaches unhealthy levels.

I am not feeling well now…a little dizzy and I have had some shortage of breath this morning due to this haze. If I had it my way, I would have all these Indonesian land-owners lined up against a wall and shot.

********** EDITOR’S NOTE **********

This is the reading as of 7pm. The haze PSI has now climbed to 117. That is not good.
