Chiang Mai ready to tackle haze, says deputy governor

Chiang Mai’s deputy governor Komsan Suwanampha said the provincial authorities have been taking steps since September 23 to deal with the problem of PM2.5 fine dust particles in the air, one month earlier than usual. 

 

“We learned a lesson last year, and have implemented short, medium and long-term measures early this year. We’re also monitoring external factors such as smog from neighbouring countries. We’ve been alert at all times,” he said. 

 

He added that if PM2.5 dust particles exceed the safe limit, the authorities will convene again to seek better solutions. However, he believes Chiang Mai is well prepared to handle the situation. 

 

PM2.5 refers to particulate matter that is less than 2.5 micrometres in diameter. Thailand’s safe threshold for PM2.5 is 50 micrograms per cubic metre of air, while the World Health Organisation has set it at 25mcg per cubic metre.

Um, so..... What the hell are they going to do? 

Short, medium and long term measures, meaning?

If it exceeds the limit they will seek better solutions?

Are these people insane? They have no idea, and dont care at all. They are incapable of even contemplating the issue by the sounds of it. I guess thats what happens when your subject to pm2.5 for long periods of time, or in the womb. It's called "brain damage"😂🤣

maybe if they actually started to issue big fines for those that are causing this they might stop doing it every year, instead all they do is talk about it

The problem in Thailand is they have no understanding of prevention or more accurately - have no interest or ability to introduce measures that stop things before they happen, a big part of that is the unwillingness to spend money on what they cannot see

 

Everything they do is a reaction to something that has already happened and usually amounts to nothing more than lip service and empty promises, this pretty much applies to everything from pollution to road, sea and general (tourist) safety, it is the product of having uneducated baffoons running the country whos only interest is enriching themselves at the cost of everyone and everything around them

Add to that the problem is now downgraded to the Deputy Governor,  obviously the man at the top has no solutions.

They need a committee which will appoint some sub committees who will appoint some assemblies and investigative study sessions, all of whom will report back to the main committee at lunch in a 5 star hotel. And then they'll author a report by which time the air will have returned to a level of normal-dirty.

Next year, repeat again, same same.

All I read here is that they have talked about the problem and if the situation gets worse, then they will talk about it some more.

I checked Chiang Mai AQI yesterday for the 1st time this year & it was 66% over the safe limit. I assume they're talking already & glad to see they're so on top of this.

ban all burning now.. Only answer.. 

There is a "burning ban" every year. Everyone who burns must be rolling on the floor laughing just hearing this word again and again 🥳

 

The air is clear this morning only thanks to the storm and rain yesterday. There was a lot of dust on Doi Suthep and in the sky the last 2 days. What measures did this cool guy take? Burn more earlier? Make it 8 months burning season instead of 4 months?

Agree, what exactly is their plan, what exactly will they do?

How do you think you can face all forest fires (in Thailand)?
You can not do this!
How do you want to control fires across the border?

The leaf browsers will be used to blow the air back to the other countries.

This kind of stuff makes me smile how a country so much 3rd world (considering the burning culture) could get so expensive and the strongest currency of the world.

Negotiate with other governments, stop the fires or various items of support will be cancelled...

Plus PM comes from Bkk, talks tough, seriously instructs the various gov't., officials involved to fix the whole thing in 7 days,  and no result. Just waiting to see if this happens again this year.
