lets stick to the fact,

there is no hospital overrun, there is no smoking season it is called burning season.

AQI is inaccurate website,

Been living in CM for years smog is always an issue and so many people comment about how it's it's better in some other country well go to that country if it's so much better than CM. One could comment further on issues with those other cities in other countries but what's the point I don't live and never will.

Learn to live with the smog in whatever way you have to but  stop complaining about it, as one of the old saying goes " if you don't like the food in the restaurant then don't eat there "

i believe that NZ is clean but definition of smog is

Quote

Smog is a type of air pollutant. The word "smog" was coined in the early 20th century as a portmanteau of the words smoke and fog to refer to smoky fog, its opacity, and odour.[1] The word was then intended to refer to what was sometimes known as pea soup fog, a familiar and serious problem in London from the 19th century to the mid 20th century.

Never mentioned NZ, my comments where directed at CM weather, smog is simply the most common word for " pollution" recognised around the world. Messing with word terminology is just semantics.

I recently sold my condo and moved into a rather expensive place, 10th floor, wont mention the name. But it has these beautiful wood floors and its quite amazing, I can clean them five times a day and there is always a gray colored dust micro particulate covering the floor, and lots of it. Is this good for us? What is it? I am seriously considering bottling some of it and having analyzed somewhere, but ha ha, I already know the outcome. Diesel particulate, factory smoke etc etc. So these false readings on the AQI, well, lets just disregard them ok? When I am driving wherever which is very often some songtaew takes off and the black smoke pours out, so I turn off my air con, until I am past him. I mean come on, it costs 250 baht to have your injectors cleaned. This place is really amazing. Amazing Thailand!

It's taken till July before I've seen mostly or all green in CM and CR for 2.5's.

 

 

I'm curious how long it will last.

 

I saw a figure of under 35 as being safe, I know another poster reported that WHO considers under 10 safe.

Green is 0 - 50 but the specific hourly readings were almost all or all under 35 on a few days that I checked.

The aqi numbers should be good as we have just had the long holiday weekend with many businesses closed and the roads noticeably quieter. Less cars and truckers pumping out crap. The aqi may well worsen when everything returns to normal tomorrow.
