Take severe action against smog creators
Friday, June 29, 2012 – 16:56
IT is incomprehensible to see how Asean countries have tolerated Indonesia’s reckless, irresponsible and inconsiderate way of clearing the land in Sumatra and Kalimantan, year after year, for the past 15 years.

The resulting haze has cost billions of dollars each year in terms of losses in business and economic activities, tourism dollars, illnesses and environmental damage. Those who resorted to such wanton burning are like robbers who rob us of our fresh air year after year.

Surely the culprits must be taken to task! For their selfish gains, these people’s irresponsible acts are damaging our environment and polluting planet Earth, causing millions of people to suffer from the haze each year.

The whole world — not only the neighbouring countries — can no longer afford such indifference to this recurring and wilful act. It’s time for Malaysia, being the most affected country, to lead countries around the world and demand that Indonesia take immediate action to bring the wanton burning to a stop.

This is for the good of Indonesia, its Asean neighbours, and our planet Earth!
