Why does the smoke fluctuate?

Recommended Posts

Looking out from my condo 9.40 am in Chiang Mai, the smoke is as bad as I have seen it, and I can also smell it. Visibility is down to 500 metres.

I've observed during this season the smoke is worst in the morning. Visibility improves in the late afternoon. What is the explanation of this?

The  "Ockham's Razor" hypothesis for most significant factor (using aggregated data from the entire "burning  season") would be: winds change. Of course, the change in sheer volume/scope of burning comes into play.

If it was only sporadic burning and inversion, I can;t see how the conditions could so radically change. It is looking more like there is some set schedule for agricultural burning that is clearly breaking the "no burning rule" . I don't believe nobody knows what is going on.

Atmospheric pressures coupled with the burning cycles.

 

Unbelievable it is allowed to continue.

Are you in CM?

It is never going to change as evidenced by the fact it has gotten worse with years of complaints.

 

I do not understand why people would stay there during this time.

 

If you know that in fact it is/will cause major health issues and possibly take years of your life why stay?

 

Families?  It affects children also big time their lungs are not even fully developed horrible for them.

I think school is out soon I would get out of town for as long as possible.

 

Older single people have no excuse unless I guess you have no money  CM airport goes just about any place I would leave for a few months and actually live life in a healthier environment....

People need to understand the World Health limit for 2.5 is 20 so how does Thailand deal with levels above 20?  Simple they just raise the 2.5 safety level to 50 lol.

The General can crack down on overstayers but cannot crack down on a segment of voters that have to be wooed by populist policies.

Called biting the hand that feeds you.
