The world is burning. At least if you look at the 5,000 mile area in Indonesia where the entire countryside is ablaze in what can undoubtedly be accurately described as the worst environmental disaster in modern times. We’re not just talking burning forests, no, it goes way beyond that. The land itself is on fire, with great clouds of carbon monoxide, methane, ozone and toxic gases like ammonium cyanide being released into the air. The poisonous clouds are traveling on the winds and are already spreading to Indonesia’s neighbors in Malaysia and Singapore.
In terms of environmental damage, we’re talking about more greenhouse gases being emitted for the past three weeks than what the entire US is currently producing. The amounts of carbon dioxide exceeds the whole annual emission of most developed nations. It’s also having a devastating effect on the local population and wildlife. Thousands of people are on the run from the flames and toxic smoke, several already endangered species like the Sumatran tiger and rhino are being threatened, and many historical sites and archaeological treasures are about to be obliterated by the raging firestorm.
Why haven’t we heard anything being reported from the area by major channels? Any information is currently only available through underground or private sources. The mainstream press seems more occupied with the inane ramblings of Republican candidates, reality “stars” and the latest movie premieres. Do we simply not care what’s happening right before our eyes, or is there a more sinister purpose for the more or less complete media blackout on this issue?
The official explanation puts the blame on Indonesian timber and farming companies that are draining and deforesting the land to establish plantations and dry peat factories. The fastest way to create space is by torching the forests, and in an already dry climate that is subjected to annual hurricanes and strong winds, this is a recipe for environmental disaster.
But there have been other reports coming in as well. Numerous UFO sightings from local sources suggest that the lack of media presence goes deeper than a mere cynical disinterest. It is a widespread fact that UFOs are regularly sighted in the vicinity of catastrophe regions, and there have been reports of unidentified crafts flying over the scorched land. Are these government vessels sent out to mitigate the situation and if so, why haven’t the public been informed of their presence? Is it possible that these crafts belong to extraterrestrial observers who are documenting yet another example of human folly?
Why isn’t any of this being disclosed to the rest of the world?
It definitely appears to be a global cover-up, which has caused conspiracy theorists to reignite their claims regarding a shadow syndicate with alien ties that operate behind a set of puppet administrators. The fires could be a way to hide anything from illicit operations to preparations of setting up a staging ground for an alien invasion.
Until the fires die down and the free press is allowed to survey the area, none of us will know for sure what’s going on in Indonesia.
