BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — What's that smell??
Forbes Magazine says it's the city of Baton Rouge.
The Red Stick made the magazines list of top 20 Dirtiest Cities this year. Reasons for sticking Baton Rouge on the list include the large number of emissions and pollutants from surrounding oil refineries and chemical plants.
Paul Arrigo with Visit Baton Rouge says they're not too concerned the ranking will hurt tourism. He says it's never been an issue.
