I am flabbergasted. The fact that someone proposed legislation to prohibit this means it’s currently happening.
Oil companies who cause environmental disasters can deduct associated expenses (restitutions, legal fees, penalties, etc.) from their taxes. No amount of recycling or #MeatlessMondays will make up for the negligence and greed of environmental polluters. The government must hold these companies accountable. And if their mistakes will drive them into bankruptcy, then maybe they should shift into a more sustainable business.
