Yes, you're right - I have seen "the Corporation" and I agree with the premise. Another good movie about this topic is "A Civil Action", which highlights the importance of whistleblowers in a workplace where workers facilitated the pollution but finally had the courage and conscience to expose it. In my case, the authorities were too busy divvying up a fine of $240,000 ($156,000 to DOJ and $84,000 to the Governor's Fund) to devote any thought to changing the mindset of the industry that allows illegal environmental acts to happen if the price is right. It was a case which began with a bribe and ended with another bribe to protect the system. When are we going to get real change from the new administration? Are the same people who were in charge going to burrow into the new administration? I wonder where our Senators and our new AG stand on the subject of transparency.
