  1. Notice all these companies give us this b.s. excuse that they invest so much money into solving a problem after they get caught messing with people. ๐Ÿค”

      They DID spend millions of dollars – to cover it up and bribe EPA officials to ignore the damage they were causing.

    • They do in places where they are made to do it like Europe. They cut corners where legislation is weak like the USA.

      Izzy P They do invest all that money they say they do, the problem is is that theyโ€™re investing it into legal bribery(campaign donations)in to these politicians bank accounts! ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿคญ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™‚๏ธ

    • The money they invest is in fighting lawsuits against them.

      @David Mc
      Wait… I thought we were talking about people being poisoned by heat resistant chemicals.

      Is 3M a sanctuary city??

    • the right is….that’s why you haven’t heard of it…:D

    • This story is not new. The Teflon, Dupont dirty business has been covered before.
      I’m not American. I knew.

      @Brian Remington Your hypothetical is great. Reality: dump tRump and help people get health and happy.

    • Doesnt matter ‘what side’ you are on. As living, breathing humans we need to make our planet better for future generations.

  3. The First job of the government is to keep citizens safe. The first job of our government is to keep corporations safe.

    • @David Foster There is not always much distinction between the two main political parties in this regard. As long as money controls our electoral process, corporations and the wealthy will have disproportionate suffrage. Clear enough?

    • @timber_beast Have you looked at the money lately? They look like rich, corporate elites to me…

    • In the 60’s people said “Eat the Rich”, that might become a fad if things keep deteriorating like it is! ( I am a vegan mostly)

    • @ David Foster ….Seriously? You haven’t worked out the Dems and Republicans are two sides of the same coin? Wake the hell up! This poisoning of citizens has happened under both parties.

    • @Thyalwaysseek I wonder how much COIN that saved ’em?

  4. The antichrist called Count(ing) Dracula (Trump) has deregulated laws that keep our water clean.

    • Steve he doesn’t care about the people in this country. If he did care he wouldn’t be giving these big companies less regulations that were put in place to protect us! Fricking fraking everywhere! Selling off mineral rights in our national parks (that are suppossed to belong to the native americans)! This inhumane pos should be in jail just for what he’s done to this country alone!

    • @Karen Piotte All the pain and devastation because the antichrist called Count ing Dracula (Trump) hates the American people (hearts) …because he thinks they get too much and his 1 percent billionaire collegues get too little.

    • steve coley thatโ€™s because he only drinks cola ๐Ÿ™ƒ

    • You dumb fcuks have been drinking tap water and eating GMOโ€™s for 20 years and want to cry about trump who has had less than 3 years ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

    • @HAND BANANNA name calling is all you can do because you are ignorant . Shut up.

  5. No, Trump said that the US has the cleanest air, the cleanest water. He is the chosen one, so he knows better, right?!

      @David Mc lol ur mad , as a black American most of us do not and will never support a racist pathological lying con man and whataboutism won’t change that. Low black unemployment started under Obama before u use fox news talking points. Blexit was a disaster and midterms proved it. After his race baiting about 4 black congress woman he has lost even more of the few black’s he had. What has trump fixed in one day….I can’t wait to hear this.

    • @David Mc Tell me that story about how you survived till adulthood. It was thrilling and heartbreaking.

    • David Mc so what happens when the military industrial complex decides to make you David mc collateral damage. Will you are willing to call bring killed for, what I see, no reason. Then call those dead people collateral damage you and me are are not ever going to see eye to eye.

      @David Mc “blacks hate Muslims more then they hate whites” clearly your are not black to even make that racist claim. We hate racist not “whites” in general dumbass. “Trump didn’t lose blacks because of the squad” bs this black trump supporter who even still plans to vote for him says he was shocked and questions if he is even wanted in the party. https://youtu.be/wz8wWkcu24s . Telling black Americans to “go back to the crime infested countries they come from” when all but one wasn’t born here is the same as “go back to Africa”. If you were smart and actually cared about blacks voting republican you wouldn’t be defending Trump’s racism. The black you g republican said his black republican friend’s left after the comments about the “squad”but yes keep thinking you know us more then we know ourselves. Midterms proved blexit was just a talking point.

  6. We Deserve to be Poisoned. We’re too damn Lazy to Protect Ourselves!!! Why aren’t the people responsible for this being Dragged through the Streets.

  7. The rich want you talking about race while this happens in the backround.

      The rich are the racist

      @Aaron Edwards Wow, what brilliant logic.

      Just because racism does not impact Your life, that doesn’t mean that victims of racism don’t count. You clearly have some hatred of your own considering that poisoned water should not be pitted against the fight against racism. Just admit that you don’t like people of color and get it over with. You don’t have to hide anymore trump is president.

    • John Freedman | August 23, 2019 at 2:27 AM | Reply

      โ€‹@My Prayer for Justice It has in the past. I have been Canadian for a long time, but I grew up poor in Detroit, and they certainly don’t take kindly to whitey.

      Calling all rich blatantly racist is a very dumb statement you are trying to defend.
      I tend to dislike most French Canadians, but they are the cause of that.

      I think you are racist based on how much you think about race in general. Something like that doesn’t really apply to my life.

      Trump has publicly denounced hate groups including the KKK, so.

      @John Freedman forgive ME…i meant rich”White”PEOPLE!!!

    Bet the lady voted republican that lets companies poison the water and air.

  9. Getting rid of regulations is how this happens. But, capitalism is more important than human lives. Welcome to America.

    • This is what happens when you put Democrats in charge of your city. They’ve been ruining Michigan for decades.

    • A lot of it is private and are out of control, it is clear dumping liquid you use waterproof shoes into a pond behind the factory is something out of China or the US in the 1950s. You see your company doing that and say nothing for years, some of those people are probably tree huggers worrying about global warming.

    • @Kewlzter TC They aren’t dying painlessly

    • @Jeremiah LMAO, shut up! ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ˜‚

  10. That’s what you get when you allow money into politics

    • You must think money in politics is something new! Have you ever LOOKED at any of your money? You won’t find George Carlin’s face on it anywhere, I can tell ya that!

    Trump cut the regulations to protect you from this. Remember that

  12. trump: This is just a hoax created by CHINA…but mexico will pay for the bills…

  13. Stop letting politicians with almost no scientific background be in charge of regulation for matters such as this. There really needs to be a separate branch of government or something with the direct power to have final say on such issues

  14. Meanwhile the US is wasting money on useless wars and trade wars…

  15. Well, Trump promised to cut regulations so this is the kind of thing that Americans should have expected.

  16. At one time there was a EPA Now not so much, Trump making America polluted again! Oh thank you chosen one.

  17. Humans are to blame for everything!! Sorry kids.

  18. At least one American has realized the US is not a โ€œfirst world country!โ€ Evolution happens slowly.

  19. On your knees plebeians Trump is the chosen one Trump is your Master
