Worst man made disasters in the USA

This site has some sobering reading – examples of how corporations can fail in their duty to the communities and environments in which they inhabit. It does raise the question – what do we do when the market fails? The examples given in this website show consistent failures of corporate governance, and even worse, deliberate attempts to avoid responsibility and compensation.

As much as I agree that the solutions to our environmental crises may be delivered outside government control, the examples above show the importance of maintaining a strong judiciary and oversight into the activities of these organisations.
