Singapore - Post Report Question and Answers
Pollution index (Good, Moderate, Unhealthy, or Very Unhealthy)?
Good so far; we haven't yet experienced the brushburning smoke from Indonesia that people talk about, but clearly it's a real problem. (So why doesn't Singapore government just pay the Indonesians to declare and enforce forested areas as preserves?). On a daily basis, though, most sidewalks are narrow and streets are crowded with buses, taxis, trucks, etc., with little apparent concern about emissions. So if you're walking, you're blasted by exhaust heat and fumes regularly. - Dec 2008
Good, except when the Indonesians were slashing-and-burning. - Aug 2008
Moderate to unhealthy. Smoke from fires in Indonesia can make the air unbearable at times. - Jun 2008
