Slice of Life 13



Air Pollution

Yesterday, I wrote about the water rationing here in KL.  Today, I feel compelled to share that, in addition to water issues, we are also experiencing poor air quality in Malaysia.  My students have been asking, "Why is the air so bad?" So, my darlings, I did a little research and here is what I have discovered. Indonesia is engaged in open burning to clear forest land.  Each year, the palm oil industry is responsible for 1000s of fires as growers clear land for agricultural expansion. Obviously, high amounts of smoke and ash yields poor air. Other contributing factors include motor vehicle exhausts, power generation, and factories emitting pollutants into the air.  So, between the water crisis and the air pollution, I am feeling very sad for our planet.  Hug the Earth, people. Hug the Earth.
