Haze Looms Over Chiang Rai as Burning Continues Despite 60 Day Burning Ban

CHIANG RAI – Despite recent warnings and a ban on all burning, there are still reports of burning activities in Mae Fa Luang district of Chiang Rai province, causing haze along mountain ranges.

District chiefs and community leaders are now going door to door to inform the locals of the ban, which was issued on February 17th and is in effect until April 17th.

Chiang Rai governor Boonsong Techamaneesatit said the province aimed to reduce the haze problem by 30 per cent this haze season with the 60 day ban and that community leaders were ordered to create a good understanding among local people and ask them not to burn during the burning ban period.

Boonsong said if we find anyone violating the rule during this period, they will be punished by the law and that there would be a Bt3,000 cash reward for anyone who provide information pinpointing people breaking the ban.

The ban was way to late. Even up here in the Chiang Kong area, 2 hours away, people have been falling sick. The elderly are suffering the most.

I am sure hospital admissions have increased due to respiratory issues.

our aged friend has been sick as a dog for the last 9 days.
Took her to the clinic and, yes, it's the air pollution.

The Doc. is a friendly bloke and said it's much worse this year.
Respiratory ailments every where.
My wife has been bad for 2 weeks now.
And, having a bit of a drive about this afternoon, the stupid bastards are still burning here and there.

Chiang Mai itself has only started to get a bit smoggy in the last week. Still not too bad.

I believe it's long overdue for the good farmers of the mountainous north to explore alternatives as to dispose of their seasonal off-byproduct.

Putting periodic bans towards the activity ain't gonna resolve the problem.

Agreed, the bans don't work. They don't seen to be enforced and are of too short a duration.
On a personal note, just as my wife seems to be getting better I discover I haven't managed to avoid it and am coughing and spluttering all over the place. This could get interesting.
