Hey guys,

Wanted to share a bit of local news on my end.

Roxul plans to build a manufacturing plant in the next town over from where I live. The official news outlets are all starry-eyed about it, but a local vigilance group did some digging and it's really not a good thing at all.

There will be air pollution affecting a wide area.

There will be water waste processed by another neighboring town.

The plant will be next to a nature preserve.

The plant will be next to a school.

The plant will be in a residential zone. Officials have made it something else on paper, but it's a residential zone. People live in that neighborhood. They're not fooling anyone.

All for the official sake of bringing more jobs to WV. It's only 150 jobs. It's clearly not about the jobs. Local hospitals and schools, even in this rural area, employ way more people than that.

My partner and I have decided to join local attempts to fight it, but if it happens, we will move. We will not live under a cancerous cloud of death. (Ok, I'm using a dramatic phrase here, but... that's still what it is.) We have toyed on and off with the idea of moving to my home state of MA, but have not done anything about it because we have been putting down roots here and making friends.

While it would pain us to move away from our friends, we simply will not live so close to a hub of pollution. At least in MA we will have saner and more progressive leadership - not to mention pretty good senior benefits from the state as we get older.

I'm posting here to encourage my fellow studio builders and enthusiasts to boycott Roxul, and if you have a moment, to let the company know you are doing so and why.

Cheers to you all. I hope you guys are doing well.

Audiodef/Damien
