Reference: What and where is our climate change policy, Bangkok Post, December 16, 2009
Thailand's climate change policy is the Kyoto Protocol and the Thai delegation to Copenhagen has clearly presented that policy and has made a point of reminding all observers that Thailand intends to abide by it and expects the Annex 1 countries to do likewise. As for the sinister reference to the encroachment of sea water in Samut Prakan as an effect of carbon dioxide emissions (What and where is our climate change policy, Bangkok Post, December 16, 2009), kindly note that such encroachment in the Bangkok Groundwater Area, that includes Samut Prakan, is a well known effect of land subsidence caused by ground water extraction and is completely unrelated to carbon dioxide. The repeated attempt by the global warming people to present these data as effects of carbon dioxide emissions speaks to the desperate nature of their science.
