UMass Toxic 100 List Updated

| Friday May 12th, 2006 | 0 Comments

pollution.jpgI should probably be working on my capstone (thesis) presentation for tommorow, but I couldn’t help spending a few minutes checking out the “Toxic 100” list from UMass which lists the 100 “most polluting” companies in the US. Everyone loves these rankings, and this one is filled with excellent detail down to the individual facilities’ emissions per company.
Of course, this doesn’t necesarily mean that the highest ranking companies on this list are the “worst” in terms of making efforts, just that they’re the biggest. So before we start demonizing the top 10, do a little homework. Notably missing are airlines and delivery companies – do emissions from operations not count? or do they really not add up that much? See the list here.
