the haze

on Monday, June 18, 2012

Around this time of year, the air starts to get really hazy. An article in the newspaper this week describes how it's expected to get worse in the coming days, due to "peat and forest fires in the Riau district of central Sumatra".  It doesn't smell like smoke at all, but I wonder what sorts of bad stuff we're breathing.  If it's any comfort, they have mobilized the National Haze Action Plan (whatever that is)!
