KANCHANABURI — Fields of burned-out sugarcane husks wrapped in flames are one of the major sources of smog, environmental activists say.

 

Looking over fields of burnt sugarcane Monday in Isaan, gadfly petitioner Srisuwan Janya said the junta must do more to stop farmers’ practice of burning sugarcane for easy transport.

Sugar cane is not only used for the production of sugar but also for the production of alcohol which is then added to your benzene.

Outdated idea that came fom the Indies.

It was done to chase out or kill all the things that wanted to sting you or bite you to death.

Serves no other purpose.

Apparently you have never tried to walk through a field of dry sugar cane which is ready to harvest. The edges of the leaves will cut you to shreds.

When this caused problems in Chiang Mai nobody in Bangkok gave a toss but now it's happening in Bangkok we are all supposed to be worried and feel sorry for them are we ?   Hope they all choke !

I believe the majority of the problem in Chiang Mai is the burning of the corn stalks. But the sugar cane certainly adds to the problem.

The Thais need to learn that fermented sugar cane, corn, and rice stalks all make excellent bovine feed.

True, but sugar cane also makes cheap booze and crappy ethanol, high taxed, high profit items, so don't look for too much legislation to stop burning!

It's time that the Western world starts banning Thai products which pollute the atmosphere like the sugarcane farmers are doing.

 

 

The Western world seems to be in the pocket of the CC deniers.

Then they better tell the Burmese and Cambodians to stop burning sugar cane.

Assayer  agree with you but Managing anaerobic fermentation in making silage is difficult...maybe why they don't do it
