    What a waste

    Life, Anchalee Kongrut, Published on 09/04/2014

    » Tourism on Samet Island seems to have fully recovered since last year’s oil spill. My friend recently went there and many are planning to spend their long weekend on the island during the upcoming Songkran holiday. I still question the long-term impact of the leaked crude oil that caused an environmental disaster last July. I still want to know who will cover the clean-up expenses — our tax money or the energy titan PTT? Leaving my doubts aside, I have to praise all attempts by the authorities to clean up and return the island to its appealing self. The Pollution Control Department (PCD), Energy Ministry and the Navy worked together to restore the ecology of the beach and reputation of Samet. For me, the oil spill case shows that our authorities can be proactive about cleaning up contamination — if they want to.
