We have been experiencing smoke haze in the Kota Kinabalu / P. Gaya area
[if not all of Sabah] for the past few weeks. Visibility is less than 5
kilometres at times.
It appears that this may be causing a type of "greenhouse" affect,
whereas air & sea temperatures may be on the rise. Some of the shallow
water corals at P. Gaya are fading in color as well.
Though the nations of Indonesia & Malaysia are "talking" about this
potentially serious ecological problem, no action has yet been prescibed
Any other subsribers to this List wish to comment? Prior experiences in
, say, volcanic haze over extended periods of time and coral reef
