We have traveled so farâ€Ś
Long time ago...
In 1768 Bangkok became the third capital city of Thailand.
The old tradition
is fading awayâ€Ś
Nearly 250 years later
Estimated over 1,191 buildings 305 are skyscrapers
in Bangkok alone.
And more are coming Estimated over 660,000 people use the BTS and MRT daily.
700,000 new cars were
sold in 2009 alone
Every development, every new improvement comes with a cost. - Air Pollution, Water Pollution, Waste Pollutions - Traffic Jam - High CO2 emission. - Major contribution to global warming What will happen to this major city?
There was a prediction that within a few decades, Bangkok 30
because of global warming, will be completely submerged.
Unusual Weathers Abundant amount of rain Overflowing of Chao Phraya River Early winter Is this a sign to the Bangkok Residence, Thai people and so do all the human races?
WE All are contributing to Global Warming. Every thing we do releases CO2 gas.
WE Can still make a difference
GO GREEN Safe HER before itâ€™s too lateâ€Ś
