The only thing that came out serious was the polluting. That said, 1 million yuan for a multibillion dollar corporation is chump change and hardly makes even a drop of impact in its foundations. What these airheads needs to do is to 'seriously' enforce it and make the fine hefty enough that polluting the environment by these companies can actually take a chunk or two out of their assets. Only by doing this will these companies actually think twice before dumping the wastes into the rivers and lakes.

Try harder please!!

heavy fine is necessary, in the mean while, improving the public's environmental consciousness is very important too

Heavy fine is definitely a solution, and improving people's environmental awarness is truly a method. But the
final solution should be having these companies moved out of town center. If we cannot deny these
companies' contribution to industrial development, we have to well settle them rather than simply fine them.

No. First a better production solution needs to be found

It is impossible to not pollute when there is no other solution. Someone has to pollute to create certain products. Like plastic, gasoline, energy... etc. The reality is that better solutions are needed.

So... Big coporations should be investing in development but if I can pollute and pay myself a hugh salary or benefits package why not everyone else is doing it.

SOLUTION: JAIL TIME, especially for large coorporations. Maximum jail time for those that pass their pollution to another coporation to take the heat.

I would like to see jail time, then we will see some real changes. A rich CEO is not afraid of one or two fines when the major of the pollution is not caught and a poor CEO has no choice.

Also the impact of pollution on the environment from one company can negatively affect millions of people and will affect future generations. These people are criminals and should be treated like criminals.

Can you add another solution to this poll called jail time please?..... Thank you in advance
