Smoke, Smog, Dust 2018 Chiang Mai

Recommended Posts

Really. Your resort by chance? It's only "crystal clear" because the camera is pointing upwards. That resort posts pictures showing the horizon in the rainy season. Don't you find it a bit strange they suddenly chose to point the camera up and stop showing any landscape now? Let me guess, just pure coincidence.

Just saw this tweet from over in Mae Hong Son:

The mountains in the distance are clearly starting to haze. Also, as you look towards the horizon there is a clear difference compared to the pure blue skies at the top of the picture. Fake news.

Is there any 2019 thread?

 

Looks like it is deteriorating rapidly.

Oh, later much better. Only 529.

529? Might be an error? - Smoking near the measuring device?

But seriously , it is very bad.

 

Here are more links, some already well-known:

I'm in Santitham and looking west the mountain is completely obliterated by the gray haze and so didn't go for my morning exercise walk. 

 

Thought that by now things would start to improve.

Maybe people are burning on weekends because any enforcement is slacker.

The air quality today is atrocious. I guess because it is not Bangkok, no one cares. Maybe it is a plot to incapacitate Northern voters before the election!!

I rarely get even a common cold; however, this pollution is kicking my butt.

Why would that be? Rains are not expected until late May. Thus a few more months of deteriorating air quality can be expected. These next months tend to be the driest, worst air quality of the entire year. Cities in northern Thailand can rank at the very top of the most polluted cities in the world at these times. And it's the entire countryside that is effected. There is only one air supply and everyone is sharing it.

Yup, at the top again. Yesterday morning(mar.11) it was 251 pm2.5 out here on the paddy in Mae Rim.

I can't imagine living without an air purifier...amazingly(not),Home Pro is sold out of every type of air purifier they had in stock!
