What Would You Call It?

I noticed this morning that the pollution from the nearby industry was once again caught up in something called an "inversion," which is free market/capitalism speak for "the atmosphere can't disperse the dirt fast enough because of the air currents and now people can actually see how bad it is."

The dirty air this time went down the Catawba Valley instead of toward Fincastle. I took these photos between 8:47 a.m. and 9:08 a.m.

I don't know how anyone can find this acceptable, but apparently it is to some people. However, in my opinion, this is never acceptable, I don't care what the air currents are doing. Shame, shame.


  1. It's sort of ironic that an auditory ad for Febreeze played as I scrolled down these pictures. ("Don't disguise bad odors—eliminate them. . . .")

  2. Shame, shame indeed .
    Take out the pollution and that powder blue sky is gorgeous to view.

  3. Ugh, can't they do anything about the factory's pollution?
