Clearly real; not clearly obvious the cause of the problem.

I'm not sure I understand your comment Bill. The problem in this picture is that garbage is being burned. Outside of this picture, you have the problem of a relatively poor isolated community trying to economically discard its garbage while hundreds of thousands of waste-producing tourists flock here and complain about the water making them sick. Does this clear up the "cause of the problem" question?

I guess you thought that anyone who saw the picture, with little to no context, should get all of that from it. Doesn't work that way.

Anybody who has been to Tonsai - or any crag in a part of the world that is flooded by foreign money - understands the "context."

The problem is real, it's obvious. Are you doing your part?
