The Social Costs of Corporations Exceed the Value of the Corporations
American and Canadian corporate polluters and wastewater treatment plants have destroyed the Great Lakes.
About 90% of water samples taken over the last 10 years from the Great Lakes contain microplastic levels that are unsafe for wildlife, a new peer-reviewed paper from the University of Toronto finds.
The Great Lakes provide drinking water to over 40 million people in the US and Canada, hold about 90% of the US’s freshwater, and are home to 3,500 species of plants and animals.
Microplastics have been found in sport fish consumed by humans and beer brewed with Great Lakes water. The consequences for human health are unknown.
The corporate polluters pay campaign contributions and get a free pass.
