When will the haze subside?

Recommended Posts

no, it is not farmers, it is those pesky foreigners bringing their 2.5 micron particles into the country with them, the malaysisans, laos, burmese jungle burners, indonesians, bangladeshis who are cuasing the haze.

Thai farmers are good people just earning money

why the negative vibes man

Sometime in March,  the winds will turn around and blow from the southwest.  when that happens most of this crap will blow into the interior.

Coastal areas will see blue skies.

And Chiang Mai will fade into the the smoke haze.

The are burning the sugar cane fields for harvest. To answer the question it has just started so do not start worring about something you have no control over

Currently 129 index in Chiang Mai. I can tell when smoke season is here by the patina of dust on my car. Won't clear until mid-April, based on 8 year's previous experience.

It would be humorous if it was not so stupid. The Thai government has big billboards on major highways which proclaim burning off is prohibited - in English. Presumably we falangs are major contributors to the smoke problem.

Don't forget that a large percentage of this smoke apparently comes from burning rice and corn residue.  Both crops would have been given regular doses of insecticide, so guess what we're breathing now?

Yep.

 

And I have seen, on more than several occasions, farmers burning their fields right under the actual huge 'burning illegal' signs and billboards... in the middle of the day, next to a main road... so hardly seems like this is a deterrent.

Rather terrible in Hua Hin as well. And its been like that for weeks, ouside of a couple days where it cleared out. Was NOT like this last year. I've lived in Chiang Mai before for a few years, and left partly due to the smoke issue. I would say that this year in Hua Hin is on par with the worst time in Chiang Mai for smoke (around march). Ironically, i've paid a visit to Chiang Mai last month to get away from the Hua Hin haze for a few days..and it was rather lovely and clear up there! Now considering moving back to CM..

Wanted to quote the gentleman's post about hua hin being 'clear'...but not sure how does one import a quote to response...?

Are not only the farmers, all the peoples that are not willing to pay for the rubbish pick up they burn it, all the factories that operate with no control and...and...and.
