The mountains have disappeared

I have finally witnessed the Malaysian annual haze, caused primarily by peat fires in Indonesia, where farmers regularly burn scrubs and forest for agricultural purposes.As a consequence, large amount of carbon are being released, thus likely contributing to the increase in CO2 in the atmosphere.

What is being done to save the trees? What is being done to reduce air pollution?

The pictures were taken in June 2009. If you noticed the picture on the right (hazy day) the mountains have disappeared.
