Thailand has been ranked the world’s 23rd most polluted country and Bangkok ranks 24th in the list of cities with critical air quality globally, according to the 2018 World Air Quality Report. The report shows that PM2.5 dust particles for the whole year in Thailand averaged 26.4 microns.

 

In ASEAN, Thailand ranks the third most polluted country after Indonesia and Vietnam, which were placed 11th and 17th globally with average 42 and 32.6 microns of PM2.5 particulate respectively.

 

Bangladesh tops the world’s list as the most polluted country, but seven of the world’s 10 most polluted cities are in India, a country which ranks third most polluted globally.  Gurugram, a city about 30 km southwest of India’s capital of New Delhi, had the worst pollution levels globally in 2018.

I flew from Don Muang to Udon Thani...MANY MANY fires burning.

The air in Udon very acrid with smoke and particulates.

It boggles my mind that people do not care!

 

Instead of burning...Tractors and plows (bought by the government).

 

CLEAN AIR AND WATER ARE BASIC HUMAN RIGHTS!
