Haze - Environmental hazard through poor discipline by Indonesia

October 17, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

A shot from my corridor, recording the poor air quality resulting from the haze that Indonesia is spewing.

View from a 27 storey block of flats in Singapore, as we are shrouded by the haze from forest fires in Indonesia. Poor visibilityPoor visibility due to the haze created by forest fires in Kalimantan, Indonesia.

Cropped from a Hexar AF, and shot on Delta 100 (I think) film, this is not in Indonesia, but in Singapore. Which is a few hundred kilometers away from Indonesia, where the forest fires, peat-lands have been burning for months. Wind conditions have brought the haze all the way north towards Malaysia, as far as Penang.

The Pollutant Standards Index (PSI) went as high as 280, and has been hovering at 120 on a daily basis. This is not acceptable.

This image has the PSI rated at about 120, where a few years back, the highest PSI was 401.
