We should stop naming our natural disasters after people.
And name them after the corporations that continue to pollute our air and dump their waste into our water instead. I heard this idea on a low-budget HBO documentary called How to Let Go of the World and Love All the Things, and it makes a lot of sense.
According to a report by Natural Society, Tyson Foods, Cargill, Inc., and Perdue Farms dump more than 206 million pounds of garbage into our water every year. In 2010, BP dumped 3 million gallons of oil into our water over the course of just 3 months, and the Gulf still hasn’t recovered. And those are just some facts about four corporations, think of how many others there are.
