Chiang Mai and Loei to reduce fire Hot Spots down to 25% of last year

CHAING MAI (NNT) - Northern provinces like Chaing Mai and Loei are working proactively to reduce hot spots, hoping to get them as low as 25% of last year. Local residents and farmers were asked to make plans together for forest fire and agricultural burning.

 

Chiang Mai Governor Charoenrit Sanguansat revealed that this year’s main goal in the province is to reduce burning areas, or hot spots, down to 25% compared to last year. The province is currently not using the crop burning prohibition policy, but has asked local residents to follow the management plan, formulated with the authority, and burn only when necessary and allowed.

 

According to Chiang Mai Deputy Governor Rattapol Naradisorn, there have already been over 400 villages which have created a plan to cope with burning, as well as having over 20,000 volunteers who will make a fire control line and patrol their villages to avoid fires.

 

Meanwhile, in Loei province, Chaitawat Neamsiri, the governor, launched a campaign to stop burning in open areas to reduce PM2.5 dust as the province has always endured waste burning such as hay, sugar cane and corn.

 

The province has 44,633 hectares of sugar cane cultivation. To reduce the capital cost of harvesting, farmers use burning to get rid of unwanted sugar cane leaves. To achieve the goal of not using the burning method, the province presented other methods using innovations and raised awareness of the negative effects of burning.

I don't suppose any of these genius Governors have thought of reducing the hot spots to ZERO for the sake of their constituent's health. No, that's too logical and so un-Thai; and besides, how do you work out what 25% of all hotspots is anyway! I suspect that the 25% of farms that will still choke the North over the next few months with their primitive farming methods are likely owned by donors, friends or family of the pollies anyway. TiT!

They can talk all they want about PR and reductions...every day for the last 7-10 days, CM readings have been in the unhealthy 150 range...there is no better indicator than AQ readings 

 

the real solution - a 20% burn tax on their gross revenue of burned areas...the farmers would sh*t in their pants...you would quickly see behavioral change

Hot spots? Is that what they call intentionally setting fire to sugar cane and rice stubble that's causing the toxic 2.5 PM air pollution affecting the health of tens of millions in Thailand every year? Not even half way through the "formulated" burning season with many millions more hectares still in queue  to go up in smoke!
