There is a good example that explains this haze problem.

Imagine a world where the local wildlife is decimated because of increased carbon dioxide in the atmosphere due to waste byproduct disposed of by factories and leaking of oil reserves into rivers. The air we breathe is no longer safe, and everyone must wear oxygen masks. There is no longer access to clean water, and citizens must resort to drinking out of dirty water sources. The energy resources we use today and have used since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution are continually wreaking havoc on our planet. They are terrible for animals, humans, and the atmosphere alike.

Haze Problem I. Introduction A. Hook/Attention getter (2 marks): In September 1997, the forest fires in Indonesia had been raging uncontrollably. The Indonesian forest fires produce noxious yellow smoke clouds causing air quality disaster known as the 1997 South East Asian haze. The Air Pollution Index, which is used by Malaysia, rises alarmingly to hazardous level as an effect of the haze. In Malaysia, the Prime Minister was forced to declare a State of Emergency, closing schools, government offices and many shops all over the state, including constructions and industries, which grinded to a halt.
