St*pid ppl along Jalan Bukit Kuda also decide to join in the open burning
KLANG: The latest trend of open burning seems to be catching on. Tonight at about 10 pm while passing through Jalan Bukit Kuda, triwizardfan observed two fires burning beside a house along the same road. It was apparent that the fires were not accidental and as the flames appeared to be burning up rubbish and were located beside a tree just several feet away from the house owner's car. Such idi*tic acts continue to contribute to the already thick haze prevailing around Klang area. It is unfathomable as to why some residents choose to dispose of their rubbish this way when the air is already so badly polluted. Buduh punya orang.
haze is a never ending issue not only in KLANG, but the WHOLE MALAYSIA. It remained unsolved, forever.......ZZzzzzZzzzzz.......
True, but to raise awareness is to share and talk about the issue. The more ppl talking maybe one day it has good amount of news value to media to report it.
report to DOE , MPK, even make a police report .....all of them say they knew about open burning at jln kebun n johan setia area . Ask them what action can be taken , reply they cannot take any action coz dispute between border of the landowner, once they solve the dispute they will charge the landowner............when can u charge this culprit yrs2020 ah???? Ask them why can't catch this farmer first and charge the landowner later , sure open burning will stop .........reply no evidence..... wadehelll:g-mad-1: guys if u took pic pls pls include this alien face in it.....let me show it to them.

Haze caused mainly by Sumatran fires (corrected)
By TEH ENG HOCK
PETALING JAYA: The heavy haze experienced by Klang Valley residents earlier Monday was not caused by local fires, but by hotspots in Sumatra, Indonesia, the Department of Environment has clarified.
The Shah Alam fire department earlier said that peat fires in Bestari Jaya, Banting, Pulau Kempas and Jalan Kebun in Selangor had contributed to the hazy condition in the Klang Valley.
Its assistant director of operations for Selangor Abdul Razak Muda said the first fire was spotted on July 4 in Bestari Jaya, and has since been put out.
However, Department of Environment said that the peat fires in Selangor had started more than a week ago and were not the main contributor to the haze.
Meanwhile, based on data from the Meteorological Department, almost three-quarters of the country are high-risk areas for peat fires.
According to the Meteorological Department’s Fire Danger Rating System, the ignition potential of many parts of the country -- from Selangor southwards, large sections of Pahang, the coastal areas of Terengganu and Kelantan, south Perak, the western half of Sarawak and east Sabah -- were listed as “extreme.”
The API (Air Pollution Index) readings in Kota Baru, Malacca, Nilai, Kapit, Kajang, Port Klang and Kuala Terengganu dropped to moderate levels as of 11am Monday
So they know they just lazy bunch!
Haze serious nowadays, blurrish morning
