It would be suffice to say that Michael was literally the man behind Karpal, since the 39-year-old, would push his boss around in... …

    For as long as I have been aware of this thing called “politics,” I have been aware of Karpal Singh. As a boy, my image of him was often humorous, based as they were on classic Lat cartoons.

KUALA LUMPUR, 20 Jun (Bernama) -- Langkah pembenihan awan perlu dilaksanakan

segera bagi menangani kualiti udara tidak sihat di beberapa kawasan di selatan

Semenanjung akibat jerebu, kata Timbalan Ketua Pengarah (Aplikasi) Jabatan

Meteorologi Malaysia Dr Mohd Rosaidi Che Abas.

Beliau berkata langkah itu perlu dilaksana jika Bacaan Indeks Pencemaran

Udara (IPU) di kawasan yang dilanda jerebu semakin meruncing dan boleh menjejas

kesihatan penduduk sekitar.

"Kalau tahap jerebu melebihi IPU yang ditetapkan, pembenihan awan perlu

dilakukan bagi mengawal masalah jerebu itu, bagaimanapun, kalau hendak lakukan

pembenihan awan tersebut, perlu lihat keadaan cuaca juga kerana sekiranya

kawasan itu tiada awan, maka sukar untuk melakukan pembenihan awan," katanya

ketika dihubungi Bernama.

Terdahulu, statistik IPU yang dikeluarkan Jabatan Alam Sekitar (JAS) setakat

pukul 5 petang ini menyaksikan lima stesen berada pada tahap baik, 40 pada tahap

sederhana manakala dua stesen, iaitu Bandaraya Melaka (IPU 150) dan Bukit Rambai

di Melaka (IPU 129) mencatat bacaan pada tahap tidak sihat.

Dua stesen di Kota Tinggi (IPU 291) dan Larkin Lama (IPU 219) di Johor pula

mencatat bacaan pada tahap sangat tidak sihat manakala satu stesen di Pasir

Gudang mencatat bacaan IPU 333 iaitu paras bahaya.

JEREBU-METEOROLOGI 2 (AKHIR) KUALA LUMPUR

Dr Rosaidi berkata masalah jerebu di beberapa kawasan di selatan negara

merupakan satu masalah serius yang perlu diberi perhatian oleh JAS dan Majlis

Keselamatan Negara (MKN).

Beliau berkata MKN dan JAS perlu mencari jalan penyelesaian bagi mengatasi

masalah itu, termasuk kaedah yang dicadang beliau iaitu melakukan pembenihan

awan bagi menghasilkan hujan.

"Saya yakin jika berlaku masalah jerebu ini, MKN dan JAS sudah ada SOP

(Prosedur Operasi Standard) mereka sendiri, jadi saya yakin mereka ada kaedah

penyelesaian yang terbaik bagi mengatasi perkara itu," katanya.

Ditanya saranan untuk orang ramai yang tinggal di kawasan dilanda jerebu,

beliau berkata mereka perlu mematuhi setiap arahan pihak berkuasa serta mengelak

daripada melakukan aktiviti luar dalam keadaan cuaca tidak sihat itu.

Jerebu asap daripada kebakaran di Sumatera dibawa angin kencang yang bertiup

dari arah barat daya atau barat, menjejaskan kualiti udara sebahagian kawasan di

Johor dan Melaka.
