Indonesia is far away, right? How many of us, in the western world, have been there? I had the good fortune to visit when I was twelve, but it's likely that many people only have the palm oil snackfoods they consume daily as a connection to these peat fires.

Our collective journey towards extinction is accelerated.
And that's something we won't be able to ignore for long.
