PM Prayut targets diesel cars, factories

Recommended Posts

They should come down heavy on transport and bus companies that belch the black smoke out. I have a 7 yr old BT-50 turbo Mazda diesel does not and never blown black smoke out. A major cause for diesel vehicles is to make sure to replace the air filters regular. I do, all the time.

Ah, will he be buying electric tanks, then? 

No need, drones will do that job. The US has already been doing the 'beta testing' in the Middle East.

That's probably because you know how to take care of your vehicle.

They need to start by having regular vehicles inspections for exhaust emissions that are compounding the issues of dangerous gases /vehicle smog in cities like in Bangkok. We have the the equipment available here now in Bangkok that cleans the carbon from vehicle engines and exhaust systems using Hydrogen Gas. After cleaning the engine the dangerous gas emission from the exhaust are greatly reduced. If the Government are serious, then they need to start looking at other solutions like this. The more cleaning stations we have around Bangkok the quicker the vehicle smog can start to be reduced. www.crventureshho.com

As usual, just talk and no action. That's why things get worst.

I don't understand the good man...  He's talking like this now while in Krabi he's pushing to open a plant fired by coal.  Is that not polluting then?

Fine words but meaningless because he will never act against the entitled interests.

Very unfortunate that Thailand focuses more on hosting conferences and meetings, than participating and implementing.  How do you say acid rain in Thai?  (notice date of conference below)   

 

"He also asked that people not see the official operation to mitigate the smog problem by spraying water into the air as a joke, because it can at least reduce the level of larger dust particles in the air."

 

Keep spraying water for the "smog", as it concentrates, falls, breathed in, or settles on surfaces (your skin, your lungs, your eyes, your Mercedes), the damage is very real.

Yes but if you all want electric cars the unfortunate truth is that you will need power stations to generate the electricity to power them.

This absolute incompetent only acts when it becomes a national emergency, an international embarrassment and humiliation for the government (word is out all over the world right now, and I know people avoiding Thailand due to the news that the air is now comparable to Beijing, Shanghai, and Delhi) or a disaster. He never, ever even considers taking proactive action. He and his ministers do not have the vision for that, nor do they care enough. They desperately need to be replaced, immediately. By anybody. Bozo the Clown could do a far better job than the army. 

 

Something needs to be done. Thailand could start by doing everything in it's power to discourage the purchase of new diesel vehicles. This is happening all over the world, but as usual, Thailand is in last place, when it comes to anything the slightest bit progressive or innovative.

What exactly is the problem with Diesel cars ?

... any science behind it ??? Or just a world wide agenda by some financial interests ???

 

And if it is Diesel - why don't you want ALL ships to stop running as they are all running on Diesel

and causing way more pollution than any car could ever do ?

Like Ferries to the Islands, Cruise Liners, Fishermen, Cargo ships .... ALL of them !!!

 

Or are you in fact just jumping on the band wagon of nonsense because it's just fashion these days ?

Thailand needs to get their act together in order to push for electrical vehicles which includes VAT reduction/exemption, charging station infrastructure, etc.  

 

The first electrical vehicle in Thailand (the Nissan leaf) costs over 2M!!!  <deleted>!?!  Who is going to pay for it when you can get a BMW plug-in hybrid for 300K more.

 

Rolling eyes till I die....
