PHUKET: The Phuket office of the Department of Public Relations (PR Phuket) has announced a forum on climate change issues and solving climate-related problems in Phuket such as floods and landslides.

The event, titled Climate Change @ Phuket, will take place at Phuket Rajabhat University in tambon Ratsada from Dec 7 through Dec 9. The location of the host venue itself can tell a lot, as Ratsada is home to Soi Phaniang which is notorious for regular floods during heavy rains. Also communities in Ratsada were among the most badly hit by water shortages during the 2018-2019 drought crisis.

The schedule of the events of Climate Change @ Phuket is as follows:

  • Wednesday, Dec 7. Presentation of academic information about the phenomenon of global climate change and its consequences in Phuket. Presentation of possible solutions to climate change problems.
  • Thursday, Dec 8. Children and youth forum on climate change.
  • Friday, Dec 9. Local executives forum on climate change and preparation for preventing problems caused by climate change. 

Phuket PR posted the announcement of Climate Change @ Phuket with a hashtag saying in Thai language: “Here is an exhibition of disasters that have happened in Phuket from the past to the present. It is for you to watch every day”.

The graphic materials posted included pictures of Phuket Town flooding and Patong Hill road collapse as examples of disasters believed to be related to climate change.

there are said to be thais who believe in the climate lie. However, there are only a very few who blame the climate for floods caused by heavy rain in the monsoon season

Climate change isn't the cause ... poor construction and engineering is.
