HH ... yikes


Add that to all the other silly awards handed out that you just scratch your head about.

Those notable Nobel prizes come to mind;  Gore, Obama ... 😂

Just can't help it eh? Need to bring US politics into any situation?

The way I read it, a team on International experts selected Hua Hin above two other cities in Thailand. How does that score relate to other countries? Which country has the most public green space per resident? I have a suspicion that Hua Hin counted golf courses.........😋

I have to agree with bbko... definately seems like bringing U.S. politics into it.  WWF is not a political organization.  It is an independent conservation organization based in Switzerland working to sustain the natural world.  It gave an award to Hua Hin and other cities to recognize them for their work toward an international goal agreed on by virtually all countries in the world.  Recognition of progress toward this goal is natural and has nothing to do with Obama or Nobel Peace awards for efforts to strengthen international diplomacy.


If non-related awards to American politicians (that you think are "idiots") even though you "don't follow awards" or know about WWF comes to mind, then it can only be viewed as bring politics into it.
