We’ve had a Crazily hazy Penang this week. Currently it’s Friday. Wednesday morning the air smelled like it was on fire. Later it rained, which cleared the air a bit. Yesterday it rained early in the morning and the haze wasn’t as bad. And this morning it’s still hazy. I am unwilling to go outside any more today.
In fact, as I write this just before lunch, the air is hazy looking just a couple of hundred metres into the distance. I do wonder how much this haze is contributing to the cooling that happens every year at this time. I’m currently researching global cooling at the moment – I’ll write something about it here when I am ready.
