The air pollution in Bangkok worsened on Sunday with high levels of PM2.5 in all areas and Phra Nakhon district being the worst affected.

 

The Pollution Control Department together with the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration studied the situation of particlulate matter not more than 2.5 microns in diameter (PM2.5) in Bangkok and its suburbs through the website and application Air4Thai from 54 stations.

 

It found that the amount of dust in the air overall had increased in all areas compared to Saturday (January 18). The amount of dust in 46 areas was at a level unhealthy for sensitive groups (Orange area) while the situation was more serious (Red area) on Samsen Road in Phra Nakhon district.

People in the "Red" area have been advised to reduce outdoor activities and closely monitor the dust situation.

Police should remove any vehicle with extensive smoke. Confiscate them!

This isn't a problem in June.  What happens in June, no smoke belching buses are driven?

When I read this I immediately thought of Isaan and the provinces of northern Thailand where the population voted overwhelmingly "red" ... :giggle:

All the doubters and naysayers should remember that the Generalissimo solved the Chiangmai air pollution in only seven days. Seven days! The fact that he hasn’t yet cleared the air in Bangkok probably means he’s really super busy battling wicked demons and restoring happiness to the Thai people. He’ll get around to it when he has time.

 

 

 

they will do the same this year.. just waiting until the last week of may to show us the magic 😉
