The council convinced the people that the power plant was for the benefit of the town, generating enough for everyone and a ridiculously low price.

Everyone thought it was for the best so they voted for the construction of the power plant.

When the power plant was ready, everyone rejoiced because it did the job the council promised.

It was not until the plants surrounding the plant gradually receded – fading from green to brown to finally black – that the townspeople realised something was wrong.

Still, the council assured the townspeople that the plant was working fine.

By the time everyone discovered something was indeed wrong, it was too late – the plant exploded, killing plants and people indiscriminately.

  1. You describe a scenario that’s occurred many times over with often the same result.
    Shortcuts sold for bottom line corporate profits with devastating long term (and some not so long term) effects.
    Sad and a bit depressing but very well done Six.
