Energy guzzling Thai snowparks are booming

Thailand is Cambodia's neighbor to the West, and this forum is dedicated to Thai news, stories, reviews, blogs, videos, Thai people and anything else related to the country. A lot of expats have both lived and worked in Cambodia and Thailand, and this area is a place to discuss all aspects of life in Thailand and what's going on there. Most topics are about Bangkok and Pattaya because of their larger populations of expatriates and tourists in those cities, but this is for all things Thai.

Energy guzzling Thai snowparks are booming

Post by Anchor Moy » Thu Oct 08, 2015 5:49 pm

I've obviously been leading a sheltered life because I'd never heard about this. I thought this sort of wasteful ostentation was the preserve of the Gulf states.

The Thai energy co is behind a lot of dams being built in the region because they need energy to make Thailand "progress." The whole ecological cycle is being destroyed, fish stocks dropping and people are losing their homes, because of oversized and badly planned dams. Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam are paying for Thai energy consumption.
Man, I would be so pissed to lose my home, my village and my livlihood because Thais need snowparks. Just WTF. Seriously.
And have the Thais not heard that there's an energy crisis ? Global warming or some shit like that. :fool:

I'll take the wife there. She wants to play in the snow and I don't like to travel especially with visa hassles. Thanks Anchor Moy!

Reminds me of a kids joke I like... why are snowpeas called snowpeas?

You should go anyway. Snow is lots of fun.

Out of interest, how much energy does it take to run one of those nightmare Disney Land parks for a day?
Jesus loves you...Mexico is great, right? ;)
