#Thailand #Bangkok #Smog

Chronic air pollution covered Bangkok, Thailand, this morning (December 14). The air quality reached dangerous levels of 180 on the IQ Air index, with the safe levels of particles in the air being 50 micrograms per cubic metre.
Thai capital Bangkok was the world’s eighth-most polluted city by 10 am local, with residents complaining of headaches, sore eyes, coughs and a metallic taste in their mouths.
The country has been suffering from debilitating levels of toxic air pollution for several years, with the government seemingly unable to fix the problem.

The current #ColdWave spell in #Pakistan isn't normal!

Dr Ghulam Rasool, Regional Prog. Manager @icimod, M. Riaz, DG @pmdgov and @atsheikh blame #ClimateChange & #Smog for the prolonged #ColdWave spell in #Pakistan.

My latest for @TheNewsonSunday…
@icimod @pmdgov @atsheikh @TheNewsonSunday @Ajazaly @deb_comms @MaximShrestha @julienmh @UNDP_Pakistan @hnaqikhan @tahirrasheed92 @SamanIqbal3 @MattSwaine @viewmagazine Muhammad Riaz DG @pmdgov "The impacts of climate change are evident in the current cold wave episode. (&) Smog led to the formation of N02 (which) was converted to ozone (O3), (blocking) the solar radiation, due to which the day temperature was very close to night temperature.”
@icimod @pmdgov @atsheikh @TheNewsonSunday @Ajazaly @deb_comms @MaximShrestha @julienmh @UNDP_Pakistan @hnaqikhan @tahirrasheed92 @SamanIqbal3 @MattSwaine @viewmagazine Dr Ghulam Rasul, Regional Prog. Manager @icimod, “For past few decades, the monsoon season has been starting early or late. The last 2 decades happened to be the warmest stretch & climate variability & change highly affected winter and summer weather patterns.”

As a battle looms ahead, let’s take a look back at where we’ve been & why #CleanCarStandards are so important.

Once upon a time, CA’s fight for #cleanercars emerged from a thick layer of yellowish gray #smog with a metallic taste & eye-stinging character...
When Governor Ronald Reagan signed the law creating CARB in 1968, California had been fighting the #smog monster for over 20 years with regulations to clean up tailpipe pollution
Governor Reagan fought hard to protect CA’s authority to set its own #cleanercarstandards under the newly passed #CleanAirAct, signed by President Nixon a few years after LA’s #smog made the cover of Time Magazine
