my god, that thing looks 10 miles high (at 419.7 metres, it's still quite impressive)

Wow, and you can just follow it to the north west and it gets bigger, that thing is huge.

it's 381 meters tall. just high enough to send the smog to other cities instead of our own.

The world's tallest is actually at GRES-2 Power Station in Kazakhstan

After an exhausting period of research (well, five seconds anyway) I found this by entering "Inco Superstack" in Wikipedia:
"The Inco Superstack in Sudbury, Ontario, with a height of 380 m (1,234 ft), is the tallest chimney in Canada and the Western hemisphere, and the second tallest freestanding chimney in the world after the GRES-2 Power Station in Kazakhstan."
