Factories make cloudsThis section contains beliefs all on a common theme: Factories make clouds.
I used to think that a large factory near our home was a cloud maker because of the steam that came out of it. I thought for a long time that some clouds were endangered so the people needed to help keep the number of clouds from going down. It wasn't until I was about 10 years old or so that I realized that it was just steam!
I used to believe that the coal-burning power plant in my town was a cloud factory, and they all just came out of the smokestack and floated up into the sky and all around the world.

When my three children were small, I told them that the cooling tower at the power plant was a cloud maker when they asked what it was by Lake Michigan that was spewing the large fluffy white condensation.
It warmed my heart to hear my daughter give the same explanation to my grandson and then several years later, him telling his much younger sister the same.
I used to believe that clouds were made from the factories in Hamilton, because of all the smog that spewed out of their towers.

I used to believe that the lime kiln in town, which emitted huge, white, puffy clouds of smoke, actually made the clouds in the sky.
In my town we have a paper mill. The mill has smoke stacks to let of steam. Of course, this steam is fluffy and white so naturally I believed that this paper mill was the source of all clouds in the world.
