JAKARTA, Indonesia – New aerial footage by Greenpeace released Wednesday, October 7 shows the devastating damage of the forest fires in Indonesia, with smoke billowing from the forest. The drone footage filmed by Greenpeace showed acrid haze rising from dense jungle, trees reduced to fire-blackened skeletons, vast swathes of burnt peatland, and a city shrouded in haze on the Indonesian part of Borneo.
The fires, which have been burning for months, have covered neighboring countries in haze. NASA said this year’s fires are well on its way to be the worst ever on record. – Rappler.com
