Songkran won’t impact the smog problems in Pattaya.

Both comedians and academics have dispelled naive expectations that Thailand’s smog problems will be temporarily resolved by the Songkran water festival. “Let’s wait for Songkran,” which is the Thai lunar new year, is a running joke in Chiang Mai, the northern city where air quality is frequently much worse than the government’s safe objective. Songkran generally begins with the beginning of the rainy season. Before the police informed him that the fun is meant to begin tomorrow, a prankster on Jomtien’s beach road was seen sporting a hat that read, “Squirt for health.

“According to the Thailand Clean Air Network (TCAN), the haze season, which lasts from February to April, is the country’s most severe environmental disaster and is primarily brought on by smoke-carrying hazardous particles from the harvesting and burning of land for cash crops including sugar cane, maize, and rice.

It is essentially useless for military planes to spray water into the air and plant clouds in an effort to wipe the evil away. The daily limit recommended by the World Health Organization, according to Swiss air quality company IQAir, is occasionally 15 times worse than that in northern cities.

TCAN notes that although Thailand’s neighbors do very little to control excessive smoking, macro-Thai corporations and powerful families disregard health concerns to safeguard their export businesses. While many of Myanmar’s border regions are in the midst of a civil war and insensitive to environmental demands, Indonesia and Laos are the main offenders. The topic will probably stop being covered in the daily news when the hazy season ends in a few weeks. the following year, please.
