No escaping smog until long-term measures initiated, say experts

The smog is here to stay, unless the government puts people’s well-being ahead of economic development and pursues long-term strict pollution control measures, academics warned.

Environmental experts said though it was too late now for the authorities to prevent health impacts from the severe current seasonal smog and people have to take care of themselves, all related official agencies needed to get serious about tackling the air pollution problem. They called for a road map to create a Pollutant Release and Transfer Register (PRTR) and study the pollution-carrying capacity of each area, to prevent the recurrence of smog in the future.

Tanapon Phenrat, an environmental researcher at the Faculty of Engineering Naresuan University, said if we want to end the hazardous smog problem for good, every stakeholder, especially the official agencies, must face up to the truth that the serious air pollution problem from very fine dust particulate matter – PM2.5 – has been a threat to the public’s health for a long time. And no one has an idea on the source of these harmful PM2.5.
