If you have apples, you should not
compare them with pears!
So when you compare the burned areas of #forests in #Indonesia in 2015 with the size of Germany, like SPIEGEL ONLINE (and others did today), you should not take a political map with wrong area dimensions to show the area. That’s nonsense, a huge exaggeration and falsification.
Actually Indonesia is more than 5 times bigger than Germany, but in this Map (without the zoom in) Germany would already look bigger than Indonesia at all! So one migth think that whole Indonesia was burning this year, what actually was not the case.
