    So...your claim above implies that government is the answer (i.e. EPA required to prevent pollution) but then you post an article about how a separate extragovernmental watchdog group had to be set up by India's supreme court because the government was not doing the job?

    Effective government is an answer. Not the private sector or a sham governmental body that is controlled by the private sector.

    In the U.S., we used to get acid rain. Then we created the EPA and no more acid rain.

    Couldn't one argue that effective corporations are the answer, and dismiss the bad actors as ineffective ones in bed with big government?

    Effective India coal companies have raped their environment. That's what they do.

    If there is a environmentally-conscious India coal company, they're far outnumbered... and in the wrong business to begin with.

    skooly is implying that the environment should have never gotten this bad with no Gov't agencies making rules. Private industry should have never let this happen.
