New Year celebrations add to smog misery

CHINESE New Year celebrations in Bangkok and surrounding provinces are pumping heavy metals and other toxins into air already registering dangerously high level of pollutants.

Yesterday, as Thais of Chinese descent marked the occasion, The Nation used a portable air-quality monitor to examine the impact of celebrations in Samut Sakhon’s Krathum Baen district. Findings revealed that smoke from incense, firecrackers and joss paper was raising air pollution to health-damaging levels.

Every Chinese New Year, the town of Krathum Baen crackles with the sound of fireworks as almost every household lights candles, incense and joss papers to worship ancestors and Chinese gods. A public alert over the smog crisis did nothing to dampen celebrations this year.
