The Haze is Back

I am not proud of it but the haze is back in Kuala Lumpur. This time of the year normally sees us experiencing hazy skies, hot dry weather and high humidity. Malaysians may have to put up with this condition right up to September. Below is a picture of the Petronas Twin Towers shrouded in the haze - photo courtesy of The Star.

Open burning due to land-clearing for agriculture and peat fire hotspots are responsible for this hazy condition. Hotspots have been spotted in Malaysia, Sumatra and Kalimantan.
