I wonder if this guy has ever been to Chiang Mai in January, February or March?

Oh, that time of the year is it? Yes...let's add to the pollution with a load of hot air! Blah blah blah.

When you're one of the major producers of smoke from burning, and it isn't mostly smallholder farmers just trying to survive but instead is massive agricultural conglomerates, many of whom are well represented both within leadership and as funders of the Thai government, and who similarly undertake these sorts of investments and operations IN those neighbouring countries, the level of hypocrisy rises well above the toxic threshold. Give me a break. 

Looking forward to these committees pontificating meaninglessly as Chiang Mai chokes their way through March, April and May.

Sorry about that, we must have been typing at the same time.

Better yet a wall of giant fans.  It will keep thiers out and suck yours to them.

Sort out your own back garden first.

Cross-border solution sounds like "it is not me, the others do also"... how many subcommittees will they need?

Not to mention a probe or two.

While it is certainly true that neighboring countries like Myanmar and Laos are contributing to the problem, I fear this will be just another excuse for Thai authorities to do absolutely nothing domestically.

Brunei and Indonesia hardly "nearby"!! When it comes to haze/smoke, IMO the conference should have included neighbours Burma, Laos and Cambodia.

True, I have lived in both Cambodia and Indonesia, couple years each - Thailand has nothing on Indonesia when it comes to smoke - was so bad, many evacuated to Singapore one year - couldn't breath.  Cambodia burns everything, you name it, goes up in flames, smokes everyone out.    Peace

I'm in Pattaya, no borders for a long way, we get the "haze".  They can't blame other countries for here.

I can smell the burning from when the sun sets...... dusk to dawn.

Get your police working to arrest farmers who start fires

That is not the solution to the problem even though many would like it to be.

It is for us in the south. During July to September, on bad years, we get the smoke from fires in Sumatra and Kalimantan.
