22 June 2015. The Chilean government is forcing more than 900 industries to temporarily shut down in the face of an air pollution emergency in the capital city of Santiago, according to a Reuters report. Emissions from a growing number of vehicles, manufacturing industries, and wood-burning heaters — combined with the fact that the city is surrounded by mountain ranges that prevent air drainage — leave Santiago particularly vulnerable.
