I generally agree with you, change is possible, however for a long process to be completed it has to start first, and things haven't even started to move to that direction in Thailand. So, 30 years from now, perhaps.

Agreed. Let's put anotherspanner in the works and talk about the chemical salespeople that say(and I've actually heard this said), "With these products, we can enhance the burnt ash to double the effect of your output" ..... <deleted>Sakes!

Interesting! Must be the hot climate. Wait! It probablty is.
 
Do you think the biogas contraption that I showed (modified to suit the Thai market in whatever ways it can) could simplify the process enough to make it appealing (with the free gas and the free compost)? True! Gas bottles last forever in my experience and they are dirt cheap at 400 B. True! Composting is done by burning. Sort of. How about a governmental program in schools to evaluate 15 anti-pollution video ads by parents and children as a soft manner to educate them on the consequences of their action! Surely, they are not going to continue burning their fields if they know that they are causing harm to their children AND them, as the videos would persuade incontrovertibly. It has to be done smartly. This is one of the smart ways that was done in some areas where smoking use was generalized and in 30 years it has been  virtually "eradicated". Big changes like these don't happen overnight, but demand clever persuasion techniques and incentives, along with peer pressure and losing face pressures. Children will remind their parents everyday that they are stupid and uncaring. Your thoughts?
 
 
We had a small pig farm and had the Agri people come in and build an underground Biogas collector. The volume was approx 2 tons and worked well. The pig manure was (of course) used as fertilizer. The cost was around 20K baht.

Values look really low, I think something is off with that one.  The average for the day shows around 25 ug/m3, that's mid-yellow on the US EPA AQI scale, around 80 US AQI.   All other stations today show about 108-147 US AQI.

Do you think that mass production of such a contraption should not reduce significantly its price? Add improvements to make it cheaper and easier. Maybe add a robot or a drone to do the collecting too ! In fairness, it is hot and it is hilly sometimes. Do Thai farmers and big agro businesses use Burmese like construction companies use Burmese too?

You should all evacuate CM and head south to the coast .  Think about your health, you only live once.

How about you..? So far in February Chiang Mai has remained better than been about the same as Bangkok.  (And Pattaya wasn't great either.)

Yes, that is CMU, it is abbreviation for Chiang Mai University, location near Angew lake, or wat umong

I believe science and in situ measurement, I don't trust satellite approximation. Aqi website that people like to share here is not a credible source of information and is not based on concrete data.

 

I don't like your fear mongering if you think that Chiang Mai University is fake institution, I would like to see evidence for your false accusations.
