Up In The Haze

Thick haze: A tourist poses for a photo in front of Malaysia's landmark Petronas Twin Towers obscured in haze in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on June 24. Malaysian authorities declared a state of emergency Sunday in a southern district where a smoky haze blamed on Indonesian forest fires has triggered one of the country's worst pollution levels in years.

Just stop the blame game and help put out the fire, shall we?
