Corporations: profit and pollution

The Kassandra Project


In this article we develop some ideas taken from “The Corporation” by Michael Moore, we thank him for his contribution.

What are the damages caused by corporations to individuals and the nature?

The petrochemical industry begun when they found out that they could synthesize any material that meet certain characteristics from the molecular breakdown of oil… One problem: many of these cause cancer.

We have this question: when we do something new, we ask which effects it has on us and the nature?

Today we can choose from thousands of things, but how many of these have quality? What was the price of comfort in choosing? For more supply and more convenience, we have failed to monitor quality and economy. To get increasingly reduced costs, we have finally achieved nothing quality in products and in life.

The corporation was created to ease the burden on the responsibilities of those who did not want responsibility for his actions. But then who pays for the work of the corporation? They believe they can plunder the earth, not remembering that it is not only their earth, but it is shared with everyone. If a thing of everyone has been damaged by someone or something, it is not right to punish offenders?

But the corporations know that the devastation creates opportunities: September 11 has doubled the value of gold, the war in the Gulf has tripled oil and the war in Iraq has pushed its price to $ 100 a barrel in these day.

Over the centuries we have taken the ground, then water and finally the air. These are not our properties: we found them here; on the contrary we divided and bartered them as if they were ours.

We suggest our Kassandra TV about Corporations.

    Hello, I am post-grad at the University of Westminster in London and I am a part of a group who is making a magazine called Green Pulse that will address climate changes and global warming in our articles. Our magazine is not for commercial use, therefore, I am wondering if I can use the photo used for this article for my article on health and our environment. Please email me. Thank you.

    I am a steelworker in South Africa who has traveled to many countries to erect production plants for various companies.
    The general feeling amongst the average worker in South Africa is that the feeding of his or her family is more important than the destruction of our beautiful country.

    Money and day to day living has taken top priority.

    Please email me

  8. Nice.. But still we need corporation in our world. There is a lot of reason we need it. Even when we says that we are rejecting it, it was actually something that has been supporting people for decades. The only thing we can do is cure and early prevention from corporation damaging humans and the earth. Maybe we can find some ideas around.
