Myanmar and Thailand – March 25th, 2013

Every year between February and April local farmers in Northern Thailand and neighboring countries burn huge amounts of vegetation to clear fields and get rid of agricultural waste. The result is a serious, regional smog problem that causes discomfort and health issues for millions of people. Here, the haze covers much of Thailand and spreads towards neighboring countries such as Myanmar (left).
