"Bangkok Has It All" - Thai media mocks city slogan after anti-smog measures cause trouble

Thai Rath mocked a slogan that is familiar to many Bangkokians after firemen in the port area of the city caused chaos on the roads by spraying water in anti-smog measures. 

 

The slogan "Krung Thep thii long tua" - that might be translated as "Bangkok Has It All" turned into a saying with altogether more unpleasant connotations. 

 

The anti-particulate spraying caused a big flood in Klong Toei that resulted in trouble for motorists, the media said in a video. 

 

There was a massive traffic jam in the area and motorcyclists were soaked to the skin. 

 

They made no comment that the spraying had achieved its objective. 

 

Thaivisa notes that people have criticized the efforts saying it is not addressing the root causes of the smog and is too little too late.

So Songkran started a little early for these folk.

 

Is there any reputable proof that spraying water actually does anything to reduce the pollution to any significant extent? If so wouldn't testing the fire extinguisher systems in all the high rise buildings do the same thing?

The governor mistook the smog as sand particles. That's why they used water.

Can anyone explain what the thinking is with spraying the water?

Thats the issue... there is no thinking.. none whatsoever...  

 

Someone high-up is unaware they are dumb... its one of those people who's never been corrected, thus, they are unable to comprehend that they don't know something and they are simply unaware of the wealth of knowledge they don't know and unable to defer to experts... 

 

This person has fired from the hip and everyone around him 'kraeng-jai's him too much to mention what a galactically dumb idea it is...
