Smoke from Fires in Bolivia and Brazil - September 22nd, 2010

Smoke from fires burning in Bolivia blows over to the Andes Mountain chain running through Peru and Bolivia. The peaks then prevent it from blowing further west, out to sea.

Spokespeople for the countries’ indigenous communities have criticised the government for doing little to prevent hotspots from turning into blazes, noting that much land has been devastated and many community members are suffering illnesses because of the fires.
