This issue has nothing to do about tax money...unless of course you want to talk about corrupt gov officials or anyone in gov who is receiving a salary for pollution control or is that the pollution no control dept..

It sort of does as the companies creating the pollution pay the Thai Government tax money, yet the Thai Government doesn't impose a tax on labor for Thai workers (up to a certain amount) as do western Governments.  Not ideal i agree

The whole North is blanketed with SMOG.

Sorry, but who writes such funny things - 'haze', how nice.

Where is the link gone?

Or this link

 

Keep the good work doing, ThaiVisa.

Thanks for all the information of the good members in the past.

But, enough is enough.

Bye.

How can you enjoy living here?

FYI, at night the numbers are much lower than in the day time.

Any idea how and what?

Ok, I'll have a go.

 

Their national 'army' do nothing and have done nothing for many years, so .......

 

1. A nationwide TV, internet and radio campaign indicating that from 1st April ( I know the significance of this date), anyone caught lighting forest fires will be shot on site! Deploy soldiers into the forests and earn their small salary.

 

2. Government officials will patrol rice fields and other land. If the land is seen to have been burn't before they got there. Take a GPS co-ordinate, find out the land owner and fine them via mail. If they don't pay, confiscate the land.

 

3. Any trucks, lorries, pickups found to have excessive black smoke, details are taken and owner must report within 7 days to government DVLA for inspection checking to see if oil has been changed.

 

4. Any of the above vehicles found to have excessive smoke but have a valid road worthiness certificate, the number plate will be tied to Government DVLA location. Logs will indicate who passed said vehicle and they will be dismissed immediately.

 

These are only a few of the many ideas out there. Not too difficult to put into place. Advertising on TV, internet and radio will be free using government funded media. The rest are government employees only. However ......... where is the earning potential for the government in all of this?  no where, hence it won't be done!  End of. 😞

Yes, plenty. But I'm not getting paid to initiate and implement solutions. The ASEAN politicos are.

That's the point.

Thanks,  Mr quietman.
