Singaporeans are trying hard not to breathe too often as it will release carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, which will float to the North Pole and cause the ice to melt and polar bears to die.

This after the National Environment Agency sent a summon to someone for failing to turn off the car engine for nine minutes while in stationary position.

This act of issuing such a fine has sent shock waves across Singapore, as people are unsure what actions will break the law.

Xi Kong Qi, a local, said: “I’ve tried to hold my breath for extended periods. And I’ve only fainted about twice so far today.”

Another Singaporean has said that the NEA summon has made him more aware of going green.

Fang Cho Pi, said while turning a bit green: “I’ve refrained from flatulence since yesterday in case NEA officer catch me and send a summon letter to my house.”
