  1. Everyone should have at least 1 million baht in liquid form in case of emergencies. For me its my visa requirements and reserve for medical expenses that make me a 1% according to this (?) research.
  2. I am gonna have an extra beer tonight, as I finally belong to the 1%.
  3. All that money will go up in smoke.

    You probably turned a blind eye to the firemaps of the last 4 weeks.

    Homepro has it. Buy this stuff in the coming green season and it's half the price.
  6. Great. Next we need a group of strong kids with stickers and a Youtube channel like those Russian kids.

    There is some hope as most problems are now coming from Myanmar and the number of fires in Thailand is slowly getting lower. There are no detected fires the last 24 hours in both Nan and Chiang Rai, (according to NASA).

    The Nasa firemaps show us that forest fires are just a small part of the problem. Most fires were in valleys and point out to slash and burn farming on industrial scale.
  10. The government has no choice really. Trying to enforce the laws would expose a non functioning, criminal, police force. A can of worms too big to open. Also, the burning and clearing of fields, keeps production costs low and profits high. Who's ever cared about the human cost in corrupt 3rd world countries? The only way forward is to educate the people. Start with your own group of friends, family or students. Talk about pm 10 and pm 2.5. Teach them how to find less biased information. We have seen a remarkable number of news articles on pm 2.5 this year.

    Some provinces are actually respecting a burning ban. So there is hope.

    Lopburi and Saraburi are the (usual) main culprits of Bangkok's excessive smog. Don't you just love the lack of law enforcement. Burn those fields farmers!
