PM Prayut urges stringent punishment of forest arsonists


Recommended Posts

Levels are WAY more than 273, and NEVER 7.

 

I can not understand this huge problem (sanitary emergency some say).

Thai people don't even like to talk about that. Maybe they feel they can do nothing against the farmers who are killing and injuring seriously so many people for years.

 

I read 2-3 years ago in Bangkok post i think, that more than 100.000 people are going hospital for that. Lungs, heart, eyes, sinus, etc. Would be necessary to have the real actual numbers. But not only it's very irritating, it kills, and it injured ! Thousands, every year.

 

Maybe gouvernement and army fear those farmers ? Seriously. 

 

Otherwise action need to be strong, after 10 years of doing nothing.

Satellites, drones, army. Set examples. Period. No autorisation all year. No fk fire !

Then diplomacy with Laos, Myanmar, China, Cambodia.

 

This very heavy problem makes those countries look like the most savages countries in the world. Animals would not be that stupid.

And no power in charge ? And no social reaction ?

 

Argument : this has a heavy impact on economy.

The Prime Minister has urged related officials to identify and take legal action against the arsonists

he can urge as much as he wants. If he doesn't  send  an army of crucifiers to the mountains nothing will change, same  as all the years before..

Total respect for the fire fighters on the last pict.

 

Compared to the virus, with witch you have a chance to not have problem, this kind of méga-pollution is 100% sure to hurt. People, planet.

 

PM said last year "hm i want this problem to be fixed in 7 days". It looked not to smart of course... But actually, send army, and the problem would be fixed within a week or so. 

 

But by just talking of course zéro result, it's even worse.

 

I would be curious to know the ridiculous fines too that may be in the law for those major CRIMES...

 

And again total respect for the fire fighters on the last pict. I can hardly imagine more difficult mission, even in a war.

More BS lip service from the PM. Last year when Prayut visited Chiang Mai the daily AQI was unbearable he said that the problem would be fixed within 7 days, off course Sweet Fanny Adams was done. Here we are 1 year later and it's the same rinse/repeat rant. Talk is cheap, we need action here in Northern Thailand....

Not just in Chiang Mai. In all the years I have lived here in Kanchanaburi it has never been a problem. This year last 4 months have been in the high 100's to early 200's. More worried about dying from that than Covid 19!!🤬🤬🤬🤬😷😷😷😷

They need HELP. Not Punishment! 
Anyway, words are cheap here, unfortunately. 
And the majority of Thais in affected areas are suffering , apathetically . 
mai bon bon, khrap! Rain come soon.

Just tell the officials and the governor: one more fire and you're gone!

Is this an old article from 2017, 2018 or 2019?  I feel like I have heard this before Hmmmm?  Oh PM also they are burning the hell out of Kanchanaburi today.  100% under control like Corona!

They always just ask and warn and urge and tell people (not) to do something. How about enforcing existing laws, rules and regulations for a change? 

The whole world shows dramatic declines in air pollution over the last few months, except northern Thailand, where the morons just refuse to stop burning. And those who can do - and should actually do - something about it do <deleted> all and just watch it happen, year after year after year. What a disgrace.
