    The Not-So-Funny Farm - Grist Magazine
    Tirso Moreno, farmworker organizer, answers Grist's questions

    If you could institute by fiat one environmental reform, what would it be?

    I would like to see much stiffer penalties and bigger fines for companies and individuals that cause environmental destruction that harms people's health and, in some cases, even costs them their lives. Too often, polluters and multinational corporations just get what amounts to a slap on the wrist; the fines imposed don't even begin to affect their "bottom line." People are sick and dying while they make bigger profits. That is not right.
