I don't recall we have haze in the 50 or even 60, and that is when we Singaporean also burn our dead leaves. Suddenly, we have more farmers over in Indonesia or their farm land has increased?
I think this is more the big boys burning down the forest for timber and just conveniently add it to the farmers account. How much could they burn for a plot of land after they harvested them? The farmers have been during this for donkey years, something must have changed that affect us so badly.
In order to do what they are doing now, they must have approval from the government or some top guns must have turn a blind eye to such activities for their own pocket. The rest of the world must boycott timber from such companies and that is the only way they will have to take actions.
Can some organization starts to identify the timber supplier who source their timber from such plantations. List down their clients who have imported these timber so that people around the world will know if they have contributed to world pollution by buying their products.
