As if seeing the black smoke wasn't enough of education. They might be dumb but not that dumb. Money numba one.

So they burn the stubble to save money as they didn't get as much for the poor crop last year because the soil is knackered after all that stubble burning.

 

Genius.

In addition, relevant government agencies and more than 100 farmers signed a memorandum of understanding at the event on ending the practice of rice-stubble burning.

 

Khon Buri district has more than 90,000 rice growing areas. Local farmers burn rice stubble as an easy and cheap way to deal with straws and weeds growing on their land.

100 farmers signed with over 90,000 rice growing areas in Khon Buri district... shows a lot of promise!

Thailand is facing an airpocalypse like never seen before. With the increased growth, the insatiable appetite for greater tourist numbers, (always pushing quantity over quality), the ever increasing number of cars and trucks on the road, and the insistence on the continuation of the promotion of diesel vehicles (one of the few nations remaining, that are doing so), this nation's air is only going to get worse, and more and more Thais are going to be dying every year from this tragic outcome.

 

So, whatever can be done to mitigate this epic tragedy, is a good thing. The national government is doing nearly nothing to address this. They do not have the vision, nor do they have the talent. Nor do they care. So, if this happens at the grass roots (no pun intended) level, this is great. Farmers need to be educated about how they are devastating their nation, with their antiquated farming methods. At whatever cost. The government bans on burning are accomplishing nothing, because as usual the Prayuth administration never, ever engages in follow up, of any sort. Simply declarations, proclamations, and crackdowns, and all is forgotten in two weeks time. 

 

Also, a tremendous amount of pressure needs to be put on the sugar cane growers. They are the main culprit. 

TVF,the hub of whingers not in their own country.

Why do people stay if they don't like it.
