Paradise lost: Thais slam air pollution and trash for spoiling idyllic southern island

Thai Rath reported that Thai tourists visiting a little known southern island were left thoroughly disappointed. 

 

Pongsri, 51, and Daojai, 48, were visiting Koh Sakorn in Trang. 

 

They expected a beautiful sunset and a clean beach.

 

They got polluted haze and a stretch of sand covered in trash. 

 

Pongsri said the island could be beautiful but the air pollution and the rubbish had left her disappointed.

Daojai said that she wanted to recommend the potentially beautiful island to friends in her home of Phattalung - but something needed to be done about the air quality and the trash before she would do that. 

 

A three minute video showed some of their experiences.

Trash and most pollution just doesn't spontaneously pop into existence. Go to the mirror boy...

Loved the picture of the orang-utans in the burned forest.

 

Was that picture taken in the Sumatran province of Fotor Choppe?

Palm Oil used for biofuels , promoted as such encouraged to use as  such, Thailand grows much also..stop using bio fuel problem of palm oil is gone but probably switch to sugar cane or such, theres  no easy answer.

Recently asked to not  burn my pineapple  fields and complied..............some locals (Thais) have not and will burn at night on the advice of head of village.

Most of the problems is in Thai hands.

I live in the North of Thailand.  Much of the burning comes from the Thai side.  Other nearby countries are

also burning .  I really don't know where to move as seems everywhere in Thailand has air pollution.

Where do you think the cleanest air would be ?

Also.  are you and your friends starting a campaign to stop all this destruction that is ruining Thailand (and many other neighboring countries) ?

The cleanest air is generally south of Bangkok a bit. Not now, though.
