No factories please: by Marina Gaugashvili

People like factories because they bring new jobs to a community. In my opinion however, the risks of a factory outweigh the benefits. Factories cause pollution and they bring too much growth.

Factories cause smog. If we build a new factory, the air we breathe will become dirty. In Pankisi there is only one factory that sells wood. Factories also pollute rivers and streams. The environment will be hurt and people’s health will be affected. Some people will say that more jobs will be creating by a factory. However, this can have a negative result. Our population will grow quickly. Fast growth can cause more harm than good. A factory would be helpful in some ways but the dangers outweigh the benefits. I can’t support a plan to build a new factory here.
