by Carmel Brown (31st October 2013)

"Hello? I'm on the plane"

Mobile phones are an invaluable part of life these days, but even the most ardent of text addicts knows when it is time to turn off the handset. One of the main examples of this is when travelling abroad on a plane.

The World’s Worst Environmental Disasters Caused By Companies

The Gulf of Mexico oil spill is one of the worst company-created environmental disasters in history. Water and wetlands are sullied. People are dead. We’re still waiting on wildlife casualties and strange illnesses. Amazingly, these themes are familiar. As long as mines and factories have existed, they’ve cut corners to save money, sprung leaks, and blown components. Consequences have ranged from curious smells to countless human deaths.
We’ve compiled the worst corporate environmental disasters in the world, from the mid-20th century to today. Some of these disasters have been going on for years. Others still haven’t been resolved.
