Calls for schools in Chiang Mai to close as haze crisis worsens

Recommended Posts

Every moronic Somchai and Somying near me is burning <deleted> as fast as they can before ‘the ban’ (which they will more than likely ignore anyway). It is bad now. Stop the burning Now! Educate (if you can) that a valuable compost resource is being squandered.

It's not only a Thai problem, but a regional one. If nothing is done in Laos, Myanmar and Southern China, Northern Thailand will still be affected.

 

Same goes for Isaan with Laos, Cambodia and Southern China, and Southern Thailand with Indonesia.

 

It really requires a global approach with education, incentives and realistic alternatives. Otherwise a lot of poor farmers will just die. In my home country farmers are subsidized at 51%, one of the highest in Europe.

So there’s ANOTHER reason for international tourists to look elsewhere for holidays. Chiang Mai has always been considered a greenies paradise - this is just tourism suicide

CNN,BBC need to cover this.  this would lead to a crackdown on the sources. i.e. stricter policing, once it becomes an issue outside of Thailand.  until this receives international attention nothing will change.

THERE IS NO SAFE LIMIT !!!!

THESE ARE COMPLETE LIES FABRICATED BY THAILAND TO MAKE PEOPLE BELIEVE THERE IS NO PROBLEM !!!!

(apologies for posting in caps)

Please read below for the truth:

World Health Organization.

The guideline stipulates that 

PM2.5 not exceed 10 μg/m3 annual mean, or 25 μg/m3 24-hour mean;  

PM10 not exceed 20 μg/m3 annual mean, or 50 μg/m3 24-hour mean.

 

And i repeat there is no safe limit of PM2.5 as any amount will enter your lungs, pass through the lung lining and into your bloodstream thus accessing every part of your body !!!

So, the solution is simple...........drink a shit load of water and wear a mask. Slash and burn is the reason why nearly all the food in TL is Organic!!

Is this a joke?

 

Do you think most of the food in produced in Thailand is organic?

But this would lead to higher prices as to rid the country of slash and burn would mean the use of expensive fertilizers that will further impoverish farmers and lead to non organic foods.  Let's not talk about taxes to pay for it either as that's the only model globalism knows.

I think it is clear that this is a problem all throughout SE Asia. The clear solution is to ban slash and burn that is the right way to fortify the soil with nutrients. Without slash and burn there would be a need for expensive fertilizers that would lead to further farmer impoverishment. Taxes to pay for any problem will have the same economic effect nationwide. The solution is bringing in more rain with the current cloud seeding program to bring the particulate out of the air.

well there you have it the political global warming in all its glory, Thai court out and not know what to do because it will cost, political global warming is not supposed to cost why aren't they blaming the coal-fired power stations because this time it is so obvious what the cause is pollution, not global warming

You mean drink a s**t load of boiled or bottled water as what comes out of your tap is tainted.

Wear a mask that's actually approved for protection against PM2.5 as apposed to the "medical" type which is being handed out & offers no protection at all.

And how do you maintain that all slash & burn crops in Thailand are organic when they're all sprayed with chemicals, which for reasons of self enrichment some of the members of the panel refuse to ban because they're shareholders or have connections in the agro companies !

Just asking.

How about just ploughing the stubble back into the ground, and let it break down naturally?

I know that might mean selling the buffalo & buying a tractor, but all the farmers could club together & do a time share !!

You don’t have to go outside to stay home

So the smoke does not go through the flywire screens or open doors??

Oh yes, homes have special smoke screens, schools don't!

Quick, rush to burn everything we can before the ban. Inconsiderate <deleted>. I hope they burn themselves in the process. Not one bit of consideration for anyone especially the kids.

I don't know what you expect!!!!??

You live in a 3rd world country with 3rd

Great and science info. - but we now THAI people don't know or have the education to understand - so why POST this - they don't care or will care anyway - as you know they put shiit where they live and this was or are good and clean - wash hand whit soap after toilet visit they never hear about etc. ...
