Suchatvee described the measure of spraying water from high buildings as off point and ineffective.

 

Finally, someone in quasi-authority has the gumption to publicly declare the emperor has no clothes....

 

I thought there was some shred of hope remaining, but then, he went off and pulled this one....

The Pollution is pretty much all over the Country.

Much is being caused by the Chinese Owned Farming Enterprises in Cambodia, where a Satellite counted over 900 fires Yesterday.

And there were 156 in Thailand

Thats a lot of PM 2.5 going into the Air

It is interesting what you write, do you have any links?

I reread the article twice because perhaps I had misunderstood that this President of the Council Engineers Thais has no idea how to reduce pollution in Thailand and therefore the forecast of pollution is even worse in the years to come, maybe see how other western countries do it and in particular Japan to reduce pollution was too mentally tiring; So if these are the expertises on the problem, there is no hope that the government will do anything.

Instead of using levers on technology they should use the under the butts of some ministers to get them out of their leather captain's chairs and into the field to stop illegal burning!

As a long-term measure to fix the problem, the government should offer tax deduction as an incentive for factories to reduce the emission of pollutants from their production sites

and/or make it illegal to produce/emit such untreated, harmful eissions into the air and water ways and strictly enforce such measures.

Remind me of a science fiction movie, everyone with masks and umbrellas, acid rain. That whole region is a no go zone.

An effective police force would halve these numbers in a week.  RTP do nothing unless it's in their own interests yet can't see thousands of their members & families are having their lives shortened by the hour.

This person works for the Nation-sounds like a ninth grader. How can they keep making this so complex when it’s not.  Stop all burning of anything in the country and heavy fines and short jail terms for violations.

Enforce violations of factories, autos and all vehicles on the roads-large fines and jail for repeat offenses.

 

That would be a good start.  It about solving the problem, not warnings 😡

 

I haven’t seen handing out masks at the airport yet 🤔

A mandatory annual vehicle smog inspection program would be another good start on the vehicle emissions side of things, and would create a new industry and employment for Thailand.

 

In other words, each year, every vehicle would be required to undergo a vehicle emissions inspection, and if they didn't pass, would be required to have emission systems repairs/adjustments done to bring the vehicle into compliance.

 

There could be temporary exemptions for older vehicles and some limits on the cost of repairs during a phase-in period for the program and a phaseout period for older vehicles to be taken off the road.

 

Has worked wonders elsewhere. And yet, I don't think I've seen or read one mention of such a program being suggested for Thailand by any of the supposed authorities/ experts involved with air pollution here.

The crazy thing is, is that developed countries have already gone through this, so there is plenty of experience and guidance, and documentation 🙄
