    Some of the burning companies are also Singaporean too...

    It is NOT a good turn... no one deserves choking air, not Singaporeans, not Malaysians, not Indonesians, no one. Punishment for sins of big businesses should not be laid upon the common people.

    Not a good thing to say bro. That's kind of mean.

    You should look at PM2.5 (fine particulates) readings instead which you can also find at NEA website. PSI is based on PM10 (rough particulates).
    Some info on PM2.5.
    PM2.5: Invisible Killer - CNTV English
    What is missing now is a clear translation of the PM2.5 absolute readings into the summarized index. I cannot understand what stops NEA here and it certainly casts a very bad light on them (not just due to the haze).
    Using Britain's way we would be in the highest ranking constantly, dripping below that only with today's figures.

    Whatever method to measure we are here and we know for sure the air is bad. No point saying 24 hours average is OK, we know it is not OK.

    I strongly feel the MOM must states what action is expected from employers once the PSI hits a certain level. We cannot stop work altogether but maybe max exposure is 3 hours? Do we have any SOP for haze?

    The government is in a very difficult situation as they do not have a solution now. We need to support them and we will ride through this together.

    Muar has reading of 760. MLY minister going to Indonesia on Tuesday on this matter. Will he be bringing an envelope?

    Found a paper for Europe, dated July 2011: http://www.eionet.europa.eu/events/E...ETC_ACM_Report
    Chapter 3.3, page 13, talks about the PM10 and PM2.5 targets for EU. Now let's compare this with Singapore ..
