    Not if you design your smokestack right. As I was taught in England "make sure the plume is twice as high as the stack before it spreads out, then all of the pollution will land in Scandinavia."

    Are you kidding me? Those would at least be "income producing". Naw, they'll turn it into a homeless camp.

    Fact check: you can see the sky in China now. I visited several cities and quite a few rubber manufacturing plants this time last year. There are particulate pollution meters with real-time numbers posted in public places. They looked really nice on Sunday, then Monday morning around 6 am you can watch the particulates go up. Whether or not that data is trustworthy is up to you. What IS known and valid is that factory owners all over China are complaining about the forced shutdowns. when the pollution gets too high, the gov't comes by and shuts off power to the industrial parks. Just straight up tells you that you're done. Shuts your doors for over a week in some cases.

    Too bad to see them closing. More mfg jobs being lost in California. They are right in my back yard and have used them for many years now. They also own other H/T operations around town. Maybe this one was just not that profitable.
