  1. It's refreshing to see locals standing up for something they believe in.

    ONCB Hold Seminar on Hemp Farm Inspections

    Don't get your knickers all in a knot, this is doubtless exclusively for hemp fiber plants.

    Mae Rim animal sanctuary damaged by storms

    Yeah, yeah, make hamburgers, blah blah blah....
  4. I was wondering where one can go to view Thailand's wondrous wildlife riches. I guess they've all been shot.
  5. I'm not sure what the "best protest" may be; at least this is making the news.
  6. I'd imagine that the answer would be "as large as possible". The issue right now is trying to save or restore any habitat at all.
  7. Merely deported? A slap on the wrist.
  8. I wouldn't be surprised if a "suspicious fire" erupted someplace....
  9. Wind blows you know. Smoke particles are under no obligation to obey any borders. On the other hand, northern Thais have always been ready to blame hill tribes for their woes.

    Wednesday ‘beach cleaning day’ dirtiest of week

    I guarantee that trash is coming downstream from all the rivers and klongs in Thailand, just like the smog in Chiang Mai is coming from upwind.
  11. Yeah, I got a new Honda PCX 150 and I like it a lot. Trouble is, the dealer here in CM only has user manuals in Thai, but I need one in paasaa Angrit. Does anyone have a line on where to pick on up? And yes, before you answer, yes, I searched for it on this site. :) And yes, I checked the English-language Honda site, they said ask at your dealer. And I did find a manual for the model year 2010, the PCX 150i, not nearly the same bike. ??? Thanks!!!

    Smoke, Smog, Dust 2018 Chiang Mai

    It's beginning to dawn on me that it's very popular to blame hill tribes for the smog. When I ride my bike across town, it's very obvious that there's little to no regulation of auto (or songthaew or tuk-tuk or motocy' for that matter) emissions. Thailand's auto emissions are enough to account for Chiang Mai's smog, especially when you take the area's topography into account. Then look at the charcoal fires that are lit on every street corner to cook moo ping and Thailand's beloved street food. You're choking on it. But it's safer to blame the hill people (Kayan, Hmong, etc.) and their age-old burning practices.
  13. Because ALL of Thailad's air pollution gets blown up into Northern Thailand, and because of topography, and stays there.
  14. Heavy rain the past two evenings, it does nothing.
