Thailand's excessive reliance on fossil fuels is pumping so much carbon dioxide into the atmosphere that temperatures are rising across the country. As a result, the winter season will become shorter and shorter in the northern mountainous region as winter arrives later and later and spring comes sooner and sooner. Cool nights in the north with temperatures below 15 Celsius will disappear from Thailand (Rise in average temperature seen, Bangkok Post, November 3, 2007).

Winter came early to the northern mountains this year and it is cold up there. The temperature has dropped to 13 Celsius at low elevations and as low as 8 Celsius up in the mountains (North turns chilly, Bangkok Post, November 4, 2007).
