Worry won't change anything.🙏

The more people worry, the more people are aware of the health indications. Change always starts with awareness. More and more  Thai in our network are monitoring pm 2.5 levels, which is an important step in the right direction.



Just accepting the air quality as being normal is just wrong. People in the 1950's regarded smoking as normal too.

How could anyone who lives here not be aware?  We have a monitor and apps but they don't have the power to change anything.  All they can do is inform us as to how active we can be and whether to wear a mask or not when we go outside.  


There is a lot of discussion on Thai social media about the pollution and eventually they will find a way to deal with it.  In our day to day life we really have no choice but to deal with the reality of our situation and find ways to protect ourselves.

I suppose that is a question for parents.  I try to do my bit by not burning, not driving everyday, eating primarily a plant based diet and not enlarging my carbon footprint by producing offspring.😇
