A view of the paper mill along the Cooper River in North Charleston

The American Way

Tonight gets another view of the paper mill along the Cooper River in North Charleston.  It is one of the largest industrial complexes here in the Charleston area and seems to run 24/7/365.  Tonight that exhaust is blowing toward my house across the river, which means we can’t leave the windows open.  I don’t know which is worse…all the exhaust pollution or the light pollution.  The place burns 100s of lights all night.  All in the name of feeding our collective consumption.  Think about that the next time you print that 200 page document on your office copier.  You know.  The one you print out because it seems like the right thing to do, but you never read even 25% of it.
