The Leaning Tower of Pisa (Italian: Torre pendente di Pisa) or simply the Tower of Pisa (Torre di Pisa [?torre di ?pi?za]) is the campanile, or freestanding bell tower, of the cathedral of this Italian city of Pisa, known globally for its almost four-degree lean, the result of an unstable foundation. The tower is situated behind the Pisa Cathedral and is the third-oldest structure in the city's Cathedral Square (Piazza del Duomo), following the palace and the Pisa Baptistry.
The height of this tower is 55.86 metres (183.27 feet) from the ground on the low side and 56.67 metres (185.93 feet) on the high side.
The Inco Superstack in Sudbury, Ontario, with a height of 381 metres (1,250 ft), is the tallest chimney in Canada and the Western hemisphere, and the 2nd tallest freestanding chimney in the world after the GRES-2 Power Station in Kazakhstan. It's also the second tallest freestanding structure of any kind in Canada, behind the CN Tower but forward of First Canadian Place. It's the 40th tallest freestanding structure in the world. The Superstack is situated on top of the biggest nickel smelting operation in the world at Vale's Copper Cliff processing centre in the city of Greater Sudbury. In 2018, Vale declared that the stack will be decommissioned and dismantled beginning in 2020. On July 28, 2020, Vale declared that the stack had been officially taken out of service, but would remain operational in standby mode for two more months as a backup in case of a malfunction in the new system, after which the dismantling of this Superstack will begin. In addition to further reducing sulfur dioxide emissions by 85 percent, the decommissioning of the pile is expected to cut the complex's natural gas consumption in half.Source: Wikipedia
