Environment Minister invites all to brainstorm climate change ideas

The Minister of Natural Resources and Environment has invited all sectors to brainstorm ideas on greenhouse gas reduction, while pushing the Climate Change Bill as the main mechanism to improve the country’s environmental standards.

 

At the Climate Care Forum #1, the Minister of Natural Resources and Environment Varawut Silpa-archa delivered special remarks on the topic “Survive Climate’s Tipping Point,” where he invited all sectors to share ideas on how to slow down climate change.

 

Mr. Varawut said the world needs to help slow the climate clock, by preventing the world’s climate from rising more than 1.5 degrees centigrade over the next 6 years.

 

On Thailand’s climate change actions, the Environment Minister said Thailand is now on track to reduce the Nationally Determined Contribution of greenhouse gas, or NDC, by 20-25% by 2030, by minimizing greenhouse gas emissions from the energy sector, industrial sector, consumption and waste management.

 

He said the government is now pushing for the enactment of the Climate Change Bill, to serve as the main mechanism for addressing environmental issues and helping to upgrade Thailand’s environmental standards. An important factor for the success, however, is strong cooperation between the government, private firms and the people.

 

The Climate Care Forum #1 is an online seminar held to celebrate the first anniversary of the Care for the Whale project, which is a cooperation between the Stock Exchange of Thailand and some 30 organizations on Ratchadaphisek Road working on waste management.

 

The project has, over the past year, successfully reduced emissions of some 4.26 million kilograms of carbon-dioxide equivalent, comparable the planting of 474,277 10-year-old trees.

Can it include silencing our illustrious leader? He produces so much gas without any discernible results.

His greenhouse gas claims include:

Thai-Chinese railway up and running Bangkok-Korat by 2021.

Reform of the Royal Thai Police.

Careful guys, don't blow the last brain cells left..

Politicians discussing climate change ........ "how can we make money from this?"

Scientists discussing climate change ......... "how can we get funding from this?"

Industry discussing climate change ......... "how can we charge premium prices for this?"

 

Sheeple discussing climate change ............. "It's the end of the world!"

 

If anyone actually cared about this, the government would force the PEA/MEA to allow everyone to generate a bit of their own electricity with solar panels, GTIs and ZERO paperwork/artificial blocks in their way. But what they actually do if they discover you feeding back, is install a digital meter to stop you doing it.

 

I just grilled my lunch and posted on the internet using solar energy I generated (illegally) in my back garden, it's only at night I use electricity from the grid.

These oft spouted arbitrary figures and time frames do nothing but convince people that the climate change folks are nutters. Any reasonable person will agree that humans pollute the planet far too much, and is willing to take all reasonable measures to deal with that.

Wonderful. Perhaps he will recommend, to his cabinet colleagues, the re-introduction of democracy to Thailand.

Here are three ideas for the 'brain storm' festival.

a) Get rid of diesel and polluting vehicles on the roads

b) Properly monitor factories for emissions and.... (this next one will blow your mind)

c) STOP OPEN BURNING!!! - primarily stop agriculture burning.

By tractors instead of military bling.  The payback in health and tourism will be huge.

In Thailand, air pollution is the leading cause of premature deaths of more than 14,000 people in six provinces, accounting for approximately $ 5 billion in economic losses, or 149,367,000,000. Bangkok has lost economic value from PM2.5 pollution of more than US $ 3.5 billion or about 104,557,000,000 baht, accounting for 5% of the province's gross domestic product (city'sGDP), with PM 2.5 toxic dust causing the waste. The premature life of nearly 10,000 people in Bangkok, the province of death from PM 2. The fifth highest was in Thailand, followed by Chiang Mai, Chon Buri, Samut Sakhon, Khon Kaen and Rayong.
