Pattayans gripe about smoke from incense, firecrackers

image.png

PATTAYA:--Pratamnak Hill residents are complaining that tourists lighting incense and setting off firecrackers at the Pattaya viewpoint are contributing to the area’s recent air pollution problem.

 

Some locals, who refused to identify themselves, said they think the incense and firecrackers – lit to pay respect to the statue of Prince Chumphon, should be stopped, given the recent poor air quality.

 

There’s no evidence that incense smoke or firecrackers – especially in the relatively small quantities set off at the peak – contain the microscopic dust at the center of public scrutiny or have any significant impact on the region’s air quality.

 

Pattaya City Hall has given no indication it plans to respond to the anonymous gripes.

 

Of greater concern to Pattaya and Chonburi officials is outdoor burning of trash and brush, vehicle emissions and construction sites.

Here you have a prime example of the self righteous ones at their very best. Of course all the ignorant baboons driving around in pick ups and on motorbikes with modified exhausts have nothing to do with the problem. Clearly neither do the ancient tour buses puthering black smoke from their exhausts.

Just take the easy way and blame the tourists then wait for nature to take it's course and bring some of this pollution down from the air. Then it will all be forgotten about and swept under the carpet, until the next time there is bad publicity that might affect revenue flows. Then yet again you will futilely see them spraying water in the air, and telling everyone they can induce rainfall, and the situation really is not as bad as it looks.

Kim, you forgot to mention the slow moving loudspeaker vans holding up traffic - surely the most fatuous form of advertising ever invented.  Only Thai business men would believe that p*ssing off hundreds of motorists would result in increased sales.

Tourist burning incense is causing the smog? Thai incense not causing smog? Yeah, ok, that sounds about right!
