The Doom of the Tall Chimney



Review, Abstract

Publications abstracted:

Walter B Snow Cassier's Magazine


Pollution, Environmentalism, Machinery, Progress

    Notes that 'It is the old story over again. The wounds inflicted by machinery only machinery can heal. The forest of chimney stalks with its horrible foliage of smoke is one of the injuries we owe to mechanical progress: its cure is to be more mechanical progress'.
