Well, the hives are gone,
I lost my bees
The chickens are sleepin'
In the willow trees
Cow's in water up past her knees,
Three feet high and risin'

 

Sorry, wrong thread.

'Some Feet High And Rising'

Intended was a song J. Cash has sung some years ago, concerning flooding.

Flooding in Thailand might return?

Same as the growing pollution?

It's like being between Scylla and Charybdis...

 

PM2.5 in Phrae went up today until 187 mcg/m^3.

In the late afternoon down to 107. Reason might be the western winds.

Would be nice if ...

You are right, it was misleading. Sorry.
Didn't want to write about dust so often ...

The center - Mae Moh - could be a part of today's local air pollution :

image.png.0cf5e7c936f630dd8306af871fb2912e.png 11:00  aqicn.org

The Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (Egat) has drawn up a plan to shut down the Mae Moh coal mine in Lampang province ...

( Units 8 to 9 will retire in 2025 - Units 10 to 13 will be decommissioned after 2025 )

https://www.nationthailand.com/business/30377770

... The Mae Moh power plant has a total capacity of 2,400MW. The new units, which were built or will be built to replace the retired ones, will be decommissioned at the same time the mine runs out of supply.

 

So Mae Moh doesn't shut down because of the air pollution,

they will - perhaps - shut down, because

... the mine’s lifespan will end in the next 30 years.

 

Good to hear. - Only 30 more years...

 

 

Btw, the wind blew it away...

Outside at 13.45 'only' 90 - 100.

Yes we can complain about Mae Moh power plant , but at the same time it is powering my aircon and airpurifier ...

 

So I looked this morning : around 270 in Phrae town , and now 99 ?? With no rain , barely any wind ... are they playing with the numbers here ?

Thanks, but airvisual.com today (9:00/10:00) was completely wrong. Timing mistake?

image.png.ad4575d0cdec5e2362a48e78f67f5e9b.png In this area the real numbers were around 250 - 270.

(I'm watching it very carefully.)

@ FlorC

Please, have a look at the windy-screenshots from above.

It's only a question of some hours till the dust comes back.

 

' powering my aircon and airpurifier ... '  -  Air purifier needs about 30 watt.

These days there is no need for AC !?

But, of course, where does electricity comes from?

Thailand has so much sun, 10 or more hours a day, but they don't prefer

photovoltaic, they don't prefer wind-energy.

They stay with this extremely dirty lignite-coal-thing.

 

Interesting facts here:    dirty_30_report_finale.pdf -  http://www.wwf.eu/?uNewsID=225651

 

And some more info here:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Renewable_energy_in_Germany

I'm not sure, but I remember the renewable energies are contributing

in Germany already more than 40 % to the energy needs.

It's nearly february . Starting around 14.00 , temps climb above 30 , so yes AC 'till the sun goes down.

 

Mae Moh burns all year round , trafic too . Probably the reason why we're always yellow , between 50 and 100 on aqicn. Just from december to june it gets over 100 . So it's the farmers and deliberate forest fires.
