Air pollution at Rayong ?

Recommended Posts

Airbagwell you stated in a previous post that Rayong "is the most polluted city in Thailand"

Well the AQI for Bangkok and Chaing Mai PROVE you WRONG.

Look at the moment..... Rayong has the lowest readings,

look at the averages ....Rayong has the lowest readings

 

Open your eyes Airbagwell....Bangkok and Chaing Mai are worse on the AQI and I could add a number of other cities where the Air Pollution is Worse!

You seem to be desperately clinging to a single set of stats that you alone hold to be representative of the situation. - you're in the biggest industrial area in Thailand - one of thew biggest in S.E. Asia - Rayong, Chonburi and Chachoengsao - an area that is about to grow exponentially - all this is common knowledge. The situation in Rayong has lasted for 3 decades, possible more and you are holding onto one stick with a tin on top in somewhere in Rayong as evidence this is not happening.

 

I'm still not convinced you actually understand or WANT to understand what pollution is, how it moves about or what the health threats are - I don't think you've shown any understanding of how health stats work or what they show for residents in Rayong.

I know that having property in Rayong gives you a vested interest in the area and it is hard not to admit that this may not have been such a good idea after all, but continually gainsaying me is not going to reduce the real and present risks to  your health  and even the value of your final property.

 

BTW - I fail to see how saying some places are WORSE helps your argument at all....the sins of one don't mitigate the sins of another.

 

....and the stats you quote still put Rayong in front for particulates - have you not seen that?

You seem to be desperately clinging to a single set of stats that you alone hold to be representative of the situation.The AQI (air quality index) is an official stat ....and yes I hold it representative of the situation....WHY don't you?

 

- you're in the biggest industrial area in Thailand - one of thew biggest in S.E. Asia - Rayong, Chonburi and Chachoengsao - an area that is about to grow exponentially - all this is common knowledge(Opinion backed by NOTHING) .

 

 The situation in Rayong has lasted for 3 decades, possible more and you are holding onto one stick with a tin on top in somewhere in Rayong as evidence this is not happening.(Again your Opinion backed by no factual basis....Your stretching!)

 

I'm still not convinced you actually understand or WANT to understand what pollution is, how it moves about or what the health threats are - I don't think you've shown any understanding of how health stats work or what they show for residents in Rayong.(Whether I understand or WANT to understand what pollution is ......The issue HERE is Air Pollution which is shown by the AQI. Again Rayong comes out on top of Bangkok and Chaing Mai)

 

I know that having property in Rayong gives you a vested interest in the area and it is hard not to admit that this may not have been such a good idea after all, but continually gainsaying me is not going to reduce the real and present risks to  your health  and even the value of your final property.(Having or not having property is not the issue ....although since you have no argument against Rayong (Air quality of Rayong better than Bangkok and Chaing Mai) you have to bring in property controlled

......Why ....it is not an issue ....except maybe to you who owns nothing....

 

BTW - I fail to see how saying some places are WORSE helps your argument at all....the sins of one don't mitigate the sins of another. (They do when YOU stated that Rayong is the worst polluted city in Thailand.....I guess you're now conceding that it is NOT! Hurray! an honest statement .....Rayong is NOT the worst polluted city in Thailand)

 

....and the stats you quote still put Rayong in front for particulates - have you not seen that? (I guess your eyesight is BAD.....look at the Stats in the AQI....Rayong comes out on top

I'm just reporting information that is readily available of the net and making a reasoned commentary.

I feel though that some people may have their judgments clouded by a "vested interest" in the region.

I'm sure it must be rather annoying to find oneself living in bought or rented accommodation in the middle of one of the most polluted areas in Thailand.

It is my fervent hope that the more this information is publicised the more likely the authorities are to take the action needed to ensure a pollution free environment.

 

Few people have actually countered a single piece of information I've posted. They prefer to debate where I live - although I fail to see the significance of that....apart from the fact I've missed (sometimes narrowly) the incidents listed below.

 

the information is there if you care to look.

 

Can you see a patten here?
