Same crap every year. Traditionally, the Thai government does everything just for show. The show must go on and the Thai people are happy and the rice and sugar cane fields burn every year.

Does this adjustment change anything for the better??  Or is it just smoke blowing... pun intended.  Right now the fact remains that the view from my house to the temples on the mountains has become obscured... cannot even see the mountains.

Easy fix.  Move closer to the mountains.

If they can't control it at the lower number, how can a reduction in that number do anything? Is this a bad translation, a bad joke, or just bad logic?

Exactly. Pollution just magically appears during crop burning season and disappears during the rainy season. It must obviously be the dust from construction sites, or incense. 

Sarcasm aside, if you check the satellite heat maps the fires are mostly in Myanmar, Laos, and Cambodia. 

When Singapore had a pollution problem from Indonesia they announced fines again Singapore companies if they had any involvement and *poof* fires reduced drastically. 

I wonder if a Thai government would have the temerity to do something like that to say CP. 5555555 we all know that answer.

It’s fixable,   but a general lack of will to resolve this ongoing problem indicates back door politics are a major hurdle.  Hazardous air pollution will impact tourism, particularly from Europe, Japan  and Korea.

You would think the health burden and the drop in tourism associated with the burn offs would provide sufficient incentives to address the issue in a lasting way. Regenerative farming techniques have been around for a while and are in the long run more financially and environmentally viable than traditional burn offs.

This change is most likely all about international standards. All Thai politics is about is conning the outside world. It’s the same reason the talk of Green diversity. They don’t truly mean any of it. They crawl along the bottom of any progressive agenda and hope the wider world doesn’t notice. 
 

As the years roll by and many of my reasons for living and visiting Thailand start to fade, I’m finding it harder to turn a blind eye to the crap from its leaders and watch ordinary people suffer.

Systems and people in charge to fix this are not working. It has been going on for decades now. Still, it does not yet match the 2 years of delay in learning to read (for native speakers) that the English spelling system causes (compared to, say, Spanish learning to read in Spanish). (seymour, 2003) THAT system was put in place 250 years and has yet to get a fix. Again, people and systems seem clueless as to how to fix things. The French and Chinese did it  (albeit in a watered-down thanks to purists and vested interest groups). Why is it that nothing gets done? The fix is not that hard compared to going to the moon. I am a linguistic degree holder. Again, follow the way the French did it. Stop blaming the driver for the faulty brake or thousands of faulty parts, rather. 1/2 of the lexicon is messed up in one way at least. This is unacceptable. Big F for the Commonwealth?
