And in America, you just plan to pollute and pay the fine, and work it right into the budget.  While the death penalty is going too far, perhaps a nice prison term for those who give the order to destroy the environment for fun and profit?  Sadly, since many of the worst offenders get presidents and members of Congress elected, I doubt we'll see any real punishment stateside.

A massive fine might be more in line with the time in which we are living. Death penalty is a little over the top, however I'm glad the most polluted place on earth will begin cleaning up after itself.

Does anyone remember when this one company in China was caught using lead paint on kids toys.  Didn't China shoot the head of the company.

I think we should go back to using returnable bottles, milk cartons, sodas, beer.  We are a throw away society and that also need to change.  Its not just the big companies although when they pollute they usually do a better job it and become rich doing it.

Sometimes I think this "death penalty" thing for polluters is simply a cheap way to dodge the bullet (no pun intended) for failing to address an issue before it became such a huge ordeal.

Since some countries do not have the same environmental protections and laws, many of our companies have their operations there so they don't have to comply with pollution laws, safety laws and so on.
Murdering others and claiming it to be "righteous" accomplishes nothing except to divert attentions away from the officials who apparently knew of the pollution issues but sat on their hands and when it became to large and severe to ignore, they go and kill a CEO then proudly claim they are doing their job.

Pollution is not just a "China" issue or a "Africa" or India" issue..it is an "EVERYWHERE" issue. Pointing fingers while ignoring our own self created filth won't solve anything.

Ok...rant over.

I have to think that executing polluters is a bit melodramatic and not really anything more than an attempt to convince people to take it seriously.
