BEAT is deeply disappointed that the U.S. Federal government has let the clear and present evidence of mis-direction and criminal negligence, by both DuPont and Chemours, go unaccounted for.
Private individuals in this country dare not expect to be treated with equally entitlement-granting kid gloves as these "Too Big Too Fail" corporate polluters and stockholders do.
Chemours, knowingly and forever, tainted the water supply of the southeastern portion of North Carolina. And generations to come will continue to suffer from their intentional negligence!
BEAT now also feels the federal government is complicit in these acts by allowing such criminally aggressive polluters off-the-hook despite a clear trail of malfeasance and deception.
North Carolina's citizens deserve better. We should be able to depend on our government for protection from corporations that harm the right of citizens to enjoy precious natural clean air, water and soil (our common heritage). Instead, they have set a dubious precedent for other like-minded profiteers to follow; make billions of dollars in profits over the years while poisoning our waters. "Why worry?" they may ask in their board meetings, "there will be no accountability for criminal corporate pollution of the water supply for millions of North Carolinians."
Warm Regards, Pete Key
