Re: Chiang Mai speeds up easing of smog ahead of Songkran festival (PM / MCOT Tuesday, 26 March 2013) – LOL, the dust level has been way over 200+ the last few days and there are hundreds, I repeat, hundreds of fires just outside and around the city of Chiang Mai (even more around Chiang Rai and Mae Hong Son). The so called officials haven’t done anything about it. They are even burning in national parks, and the armed guards are just sitting there picking their noses and smoke their krongthips. It is also nice to know that Khun Adisorn is more concerned about tourism than the health of the local population. 90,000 people have suffered from illness since January. Disgrace!
