Who’s in a “tizzy” now? Indonesia did not want to accept that its forest fires might be fueling the debilitating smog hovering over Singapore and now Malaysia—despite the fact that this apparently happens every year. But now the unprecedented haze has made its way into Indonesia’s airspace, so action must be taken. Indonesia is planning to take on the forest fires with planes and helicopters in hopes of reigning in the hazardous smoke and smell of burning foliage that’s forced its neighbors to stay inside and (if they can find them) wear face masks.
