Large corporations are in business to make a profit. All too often, though, large corporations try to decrease their bottom line by cutting corners and reducing the safety of operations. Some examples include illegal dumping of toxic chemicals, improper storage of hazardous materials, and improper handling of dangerous pesticides.
The discharge of toxic chemicals into the environment can have a devastating effect on the health, livelihood, and property values of those in the local community. In some cases, such as oil spills, millions of people living hundreds of miles away can be affected.
Environmental pollution can occur either over an extended period of time, such as the slow leakage of industrial pollutants into groundwater supplies used by families for drinking water, or swiftly and catastrophically, such as oil spills, transportation carrier accidents, and disasters at coal plants, refineries, and other industrial facilities.
