Chiang Mai has world’s worst air as fires continue to rage in the North

Recommended Posts

PM2.5 now 280 where I am in the forest north of Chiang Mai at 07.30 Wednesday. It is always worse in the mornings. Probably the 'official' count will say 70 or something equally misleading.

Maybe we can conclude this : Stray dogs and burning rice fields issues are Unsolvable..

Number 1 for road accidents and now number 1 for pollution.

 

Way to go Thailand.

 

Two new hubs for the bus.

Living in Chiang Mai must be like winning life's booby prize; boring as hell, awful immigration office and choking smog. Give me Pattaya every time.

Nothing wrong with the Immi Office.

The article talks about PM2.5, which is has units of mcg, and AQI which they quote without units. What's the difference between them?

Has anyone been arrested yet for starting these fires,they

are usually started by villagers  in the areas,so they can

find mushrooms easier when the rainy season starts,

On 1 March the no burn ban started,bit late as they started burning

in February,so once again the authorities have had great success

in combating the burning, which happens every year🙄,next year

will be no different.

regards worgeordie

500 baht fine

when will the "general population" wake up that the stuff they can't smell, see or taste yet accounts for all our food, our air, life on the planet and probably, we now also know, why we left the trees 8 mya... has "tourism" and "air travel" written all over it?  why are we in such a hurry to do ourselves in?  and that aspect might be linked to a more pervasive ENSO... meaning something that makes the smoke in northern Thailand today seem like a clean air day in comparison.
 

not "just" a country.  the 2nd of only two large cored terrestrial planets in the at all ever knowable universe, without such large cores of radioactivity would be dead of life. because of the stuff we can't smell, see or taste... which has two 3 letter names.  one of them from chemistry class, the other one about 2000 years old.  except it's a gas not a creature we were made in the image of.  ooops.   we made a mistake.

not just farmers in northern Thailand.

everyone.

I live on the south eastern outskirts of the city, and yeah, the air is seriously bad.  On the bright side, maybe it will keep all the Chinese away.  But I doubt it. lol

lol, the Chinese will feel right a home.  what's the deal with people from Asian countries?  is it loss of face to complain?  keep your mouth shut and die?  any ideas?  i studied Anthro at U. of Hawaii and i still don't get it.
