Where's the outrage? Are we so used to hearing about this now that no one bothers anymore? What does it mean the companies haven't taken legal responsibility? This sort of stuff makes one question if we're a nation of sheep, herded about by our corporate overlords.

Those who made off with the profits as they dumped their effluent everywhere are not called out? By the way, this is not a historical event by any means. A lot of this happens every day today, just not here. Perhaps this is a bitter medicine for us to swallow but a daily occurrence in developing countries and even many cities and towns in the US. Those who cause it are never made accountable for it. God bless America.
