Everything is horrible in Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam.

 

Most fires are coming from Cambodia and Vietnam it seems and all the junk is going over here.

Hat Yai is good , green in fact. Going there from smoky Jomtien on Monday for the foreseeable also got business to do so is fortuitous. Worse I've ever known it and have been coming for over 24 years. If they don't sort it out and fast then next year the missus will come for a month to do family stuff but otherwise I'm out. View from the condo over to Bang Saray today - obscured by smoke.

It's sad when we consider under AQI 100 ok.  Really anything over 50 is taking years off our lives.  Perhaps as much as 5%.   I've read way be shortening our lives by as much as 5 years.   But how can thos ever be proven?  It cant so no punitive damages will ever be awarded. 

I know it has nothing to do with air quality, but I have also read that working all your night life would reduce your life expectancy by ten years.
I worked day and night for 40 years;
when you're an international trucker, you don't do 40-hour weeks;
well, 40 hours during the day and almost as much at night. :cheesy:

 

and sometimes much more; when I was driving touring coaches for a company that only worked with people from the entertainment industry, music, cinema; it was much more than 80 hours a week .
