Using DU/ Dobson Unit the images of the Antartic shows us that the thickness of the ozone layer has been decreasing year by year. It has been going on for decades but nothing has really been done to properly address this issue although we are aware it is caused by pollution in the air.
Even in Malaysia itself we are facing problems that will effect our ozone layer. The air quality in our city is slowly getting worse and there’s nothing we can do about it. It a big job to control what is going into our air when everything that is causing it is crucial for the development of our country which revolves in our daily life. Not to discriminate Malaysia or other country alike but we tend to go by the saying of “Prevention is better than Cure” in reverse = “Cure is better that prevention” . Now leading electronic companies are coming out with a new appliances such as air cleaners called Air Purifier, Plasma Cluster and etc which are specifically build for indoor use.
An example of air pollution index in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Picture above is a result of accumulation of year 2009. A complete chart of the year for 2009 which the air quality level is moderate.
Picture above is a result of accumulation of year 2012. A partially complete chart for the year 2012 as we are still in August. So far from what i can see certain area has already reached an unhealthy level of air quality and we are not yet at the end of the year.
