Re: Chiang Mai speeds up easing of smog ahead of Songkran festival (PM / MCOT Tuesday, 26 March 2013) – Ha! I live in Chiang Mai and can say without any hesitation that none of this is true. CM is as smoggy as ever and the government is doing absolutely nothing about it. How about stopping the fires rather than “spraying water mist into the air”? Burning season smog is miserable and a huge health concern and it would be nice to see real journalism uncovering the reasons behind it and trying to put a stop to it rather than more false government propaganda.
