Please Help Improve Air Quality in Chiang Mai

Recommended Posts

Excert from CityLife News. As part of Chiang Mai Province’s ongoing program by government, private sector and civic society to improve air quality and reduce smoke haze pollution, several Consulates in Chiang Mai have joined together to conduct a survey of the international community to gather information on air quality and health and how it affects the willingness of the international community to live, work or invest in Chiang Mai. https://www.chiangmaicitylife.com/citynews/general/please-help-improve-air-quality-in-chiang-mai-by-taking-part-in-our-survey-of-the-international-community/

Air pollution is a serious problem in SE Asia and it affects 30 provinces in Thailand severely every year. Chiang Mai is just one of them. There are measures that can be taken in Chiang Mai specifically, or better still in all of Thailand, but they cannot control the pollution effectively without concerted, coordinated regional efforts.

and that will never happen. If Singapore can't get Indonesia to stop burning it's a lost cause to even bother trying.

The 'burning problem' in SE Asia is a symptom of the civilizational model in place. The dire need for critical analysis of the model, and adjustment/change has yet to be applied in any objective way, hence all the problems that are only going to multiply until collapse. Maybe this time enough information will be left behind to build from. Probably not this survey though......

Please explain how taking a survey will "improve air quality in Chiang Mai."

 

Do you need to ask about the pollution to know it's there and increasing and a serious problem? What a farce. 

Foreign consulates are behind the survey. They have standing in the community. I'm glad to see them asking for our views. Now they will go into meetings with Thai government officials armed with real data. For example, "X number of our nationals, who bring Y millions of baht into the local economy each year, are threatening to leave." Multiply by 20 or so consulates and there's some leverage.

8000000 tons of plastic in the oceans every year, whole world responsible, nothing done about it

China , USA biggest polluters increase global warming, nothing done about it

Thailand burning for 4 months, nothing is done about it

Netherlands making earthquakes, nothing done about it.

The earth stratosphere lots of waste, nothing done about it.

Mount Everest getting taller of all waste over there, nothing done about it.

Listing is way much longer, but nothing is done about it.

Thats why Mars is so populair, we can move and start over gain there, polluting.

Nothing will improve, no matter of any survey being done and who is backing it. End of story.

The strangest thing is, they will throw everything at Covid-19, the invisible killer, but the smoke under their very own eyes doesn't bother them, it's a part of life for them, go to the doctor and they will tell you to wear a surgical mask, go figure !

 

Best decision we have made is to exit back to our homeland come end of year, even if it does cost more, you can't put a cost on your health and I will not contribute to an economy that wants to allow those to burn everything from fields to rubbish, I would be made too.
