Clean Air - For the Children!

Clean air The Bangkok Post has a piece on emissions control in Thailand. It describes Thailand as a developing nation that is employing standards that are "on par" with the developed world when it comes to emissions.

The concept that we are "borrowing" the air from the generations to come is a theme used in this article, and it should make us think.

Thailand is what you call a developing nation, but its citizens live a comfortable lifestyle. Their attitude is that Thailand isn't a "big deal" on the global stage which is why there is a tendency to have a nonchalant attitude when it comes to emission standards.

Is this an accurate description of the average Thai's attitude to emissions? I hope not. If it is, then it's time for a change! The responsibility doesn't sit completely with the government.
