Air Pollution - in Isan not a problem?

Recommended Posts

Thais love to burn

laos loves to burn,

Myanmar loves to burn,

Cambodia loves to burn,

Vietnam loves to burn,

China...is a polluted S Hole!

 

Too bad Government cannot impose strict measures as with the Covid situation!

Us humans have gone insane...

Around Kutchum the air is sweet. Pollution is not an issue.

This point is often forgotten. It can be a heavy burden

locally in the morning and/or in the evening.

Air is good here just South of Yasothon. 

Last few days have been breezy with thunderstorms.

I find the air quality in Kohn Kaen to be very poor. As you drive around the ring-road the vision is hampered by the SMOG.

Drive East to Kalasin, pretty much the same. 

Too much localised burning. Uncontrolled burns of garbage & associated plastic, makes it almost toxic!

But it is a KK problem, and authorities do not give a rats rectum.

     I don't know where Isan is o.k. as far as air quality goes. It's not where we live. Besides the seasonal pollution such as the burning of the cane fields and the clearing of the rice fields, our neighbors are constantly burning. I swear they get up in the morning and say to themselves, "what can I burn today?". Then there's the charcoal kilns, seems like everyone but me has one in the back yard. I will say, though, that the local authorities (Testsaban) are very sympathetic and do send their people out to investigate when a complaint is filed. It just seems that no on.e is ever burning when they come. 

Same where I am.  I am sure the locals are shipping stuff in to burn when they have finished burning the sugar cane.  Then there is the rubbish burning.  They seem to love burning plastic.   My family always start fires with pieces of inner tube rubber.   My sister in law, like others around here, do a rake around every few weeks and pile the rubbish next to the road and set fire to it irregardless what it contains ie plastic, green waste, anything the locals throw off their bikes or cars onto the side of the road.  This goes on even on days the Pu Yai Barn is announcing on the speakers not to burn.  The police just drive by too busy with their envelope pick ups from the cock fighting and boxing organisers.  We have a khlong at the bottom of our property which is a favourite place to dump.  The neighbours on the other side of the khlong dont want to pay the 200 odd baht a year for rubbish collection so dump what they dont burn in the khlong.  The Tessabarn has a good rubbish collection but take it out to a land fill area behind the hospital and burn it daily.  During the sugar cane burning season the Pu Yai Ban tells people to burn at night coz you cant see the smoke then and you cant be seen so blame it on some naughty boys with matches.  So no, the air quality in my area of Isaan is not good.
