Introduction

The Daily Current Could chemicals declare the image of your town? Article Written By John Smith Recent proposals for a new chemical factory to be built in the town of Newtown has caused outrage and a huge divide among the community. The chemical company BrineCo wants to construct a factory that will produce chlorine and sodium hydroxide solution through electrolysis of brine. The chlorine they will make will supposedly be used to "make paper, chemicals and plastics." And the sodium hydroxide solution for "making soaps." BrineCo argues that local companies benefit from their products, two of which include; Allied Fats and Consolidated Paper, who need the hydrogen for their products and without them would have to move out of the area. ...read more.

Enraged by these proposals, are the local environmental group of Newtown; Go Green. Go Green is against the proposal and seem to have the upper hand on this proposal, as our recent interviews among the local residents have shown. David Williams, 80, Retired 'I remember before Allied Fats came to this town - it was much cleaner then. Before Consolidated Paper too - there was a lot more green places back then. Newtown used to be a beautiful area. I hope the new BrineCo doesn't get permission to build, then the two other factories will go too, and leave this area to regenerate. With proper investment from the government we can have more focus on traditional industries like farming and get employment up without having these harmful industries choking the air we breathe.' ...read more.

Conclusion

This may be because of the leaflets GreenGo produced with the same emotional blackmailing tactics used by BrineCo, but in their favour. Here are just a few lines used in their leaflet: "Chlorine gas was used as gas in ww2" "Do you want chlorine carried in tankers through your town?" "Do you know what chemicals will do?" "It is near the school" "Are jobs worth the life's of our children?" Clearly, this whole heated debate about a factory within the heart of a community, has just been spurred on by companies; who want to make profit and an environmental group, that wants to keep a green image. We here at the The Daily Current, believe that it is down to you to decide what you want for your community and whether or not you want a green town or a chemical town. Just remember it will stay that way for an extremely long time to come. ...read more.
