Thai capital should be planned to move within the next decade

In this VDO, dated February 2010, a famous Thai scientist, Dr. Arj-Ong Jumsai Na Ayutthaya, suggested that the Thai capital be moved, to escape from encroaching sea level that will cause future problem for the city's clean water supply. A good location for the new capital should be on a plateau of at least 100 meters above a mean sea level and has no geological fault line in the area. He urged that the city be moved within 10 years. He cited a location in North East, perhaps in an area near Korat as an example.

I think so far politicians have not heard his advise yet.
