perhaps some creative or unconventional thinking is urgently needed to solve this persisting aggravating problem of air quslity and pm2.5?! assuming that the culprit is external, for example, from cambodia, it is right step for thailand to liaise with cambodia govt to jointly solve the problem but also good to request thai friendly china govt to help, exerting some pressure on cambodia to do better? secondly,assume we can't do much to reduce external pollution source, couldn't we do more INSIDE thailand to push for more EV to replace gasoline vehicles by subsidy or increase import tax for the traditional vehicles, or bring forward European new standard sooner, or use multipronged approach? improved air quality could  attract more wealthy guys and elderly retirees ?

bangkok air pollution
difficult to tackle, one
reason being online
purchase and food order
so popular and motorbikes
inevitably used for the
transport, others push the
blame to cambodia
farmers burning the crops?
and even burning incense
sticks in temples recently

hanoi, vietnam is thinking about
motorbike ban in certain
districts too by 2025,
should thailand follow?
