Bangkok Air Quality 5th Worst In The World Today

Bangkok’s air is so polluted today that it‘s unsafe to breathe.

Today, February 17th, Bangkok was ranked #5 on Air Visuals list of the worst air quality in the world.

The two main causes of air pollution in Thailand are traffic and agricultural burning.

Using public transport and switching your form of transportation will make a big impact, but the most impactful thing you can do is to switch to a plant-based diet. A large portion of the agricultural burning is due to either clearing land for cattle grazing or growing low-cost animal feed such as corn for livestock.

Scientists say that if we stopped burning coal and driving petrol-fuelled cars tomorrow, we would still miss the climate change targets if the world’s food production continues on its current course. (Source: Oxford University-affiliated project Our World in Data)
