Re: Rodi's thread about the haze issue.

Well spoken and I agree but as has been pointed out, we are visitors and it's not our place to write the media. The western world is the one demanding the products produced by the slash and burn so...

Re: Rodi's thread about the haze issue.

Yes I agree. But there's no sense in rehashing what we know. They don't want help because they don't really care. Slash and burn generates billions for the elite few that run their economy and 80...

Re: Rodi's thread about the haze issue.

Re: Rodi's thread about the haze issue.
