Has the quality of air become that worse in the last 2-3 years?

Recommended Posts

The last time I was in Chiang Mai was about 2-3 years ago.

 

On air polution maps Chiang Mai goes pretty close to the cities where air pollution is seemingly way worse, such as Ho Chi Mihn.

Has the quality of air and air pollution become of a bigger issue in the last 2-3 years?

I believe it's worse, but I find that hard to quantify because I know that I am worse, and I find that hard to quantify.

Of course its worse!

While authorities permit dozens of coaches(For Chinese tourists) to belch out their toxic exhausts while parked up in side streets of Naklua here in Pattaya , then air quality will only get worse.

Added to that is the destruction of the environment from these coaches racing through the streets of Pattaya loaded with Chinese.

The city is months away from grid lock as the growth of this industry is rampant without any control as Thai operators seek profits at the expense of the environment.

Worse than Prakhanong area before the BTS, would be a nightmare.

The air pollution in Thailand in most areas are 50% over the who limits and in Bangkok and Changmai 100% 0ver. Go to:https://air.plumelabs.com/en/live/bangkok and check for your self.

Really bad and increasing/only going to get worse. They add 500k Cars to the road every year. 

Thai's are oblivious to this and the government is going to have a health crisis on their hands when 70% of the population winds up with emphysema or bronchitis.

Pity all the kids who have to breathe all this dirty filthy air.

The government is more concerned about submarines, Rolex watches, and bullet trains.

From where I live, 15 km outside CM city centre to the NE, it is hard to see Doi Suthep clearly most of the year.

Even during raining season I would say 80% blurred.

Many weeks (months?) you cannot even see the Doi

That was not so 10 years ago, so things are getting worse. Drowsiness, sandy eyes and sometimes a orange red sun in the later afternoon (16:00). Wonderful, what is up there; fine particles from fires probably.

As a resident, what are you doing to bring it to the government's attention?
