    The Associated Press: Garbage in stomach of whale found in Seattle

    a whale has died due to human laziness and greed. personally I think any person or business (meaning anyone in the business who okay'ed the idea) who intentionally pollutes the water should be sentenced to life in jail or death if it can be 100% proven

    Good grief.
    People don't get life in jail for killing children. Honestly.

    And most of the garbage in the ocean comes off of GARBAGE BARGES that we have shipping huge amounts of garbage all over the place, as environmentalists determined we could no longer have LANDFILLS or burn garbage in our own communities.

    The guilty polluter would be sentenced to 500 hours of community service consisting solely of scraping gum from anything, anywhere but particularly from the underneath of tables, benches, chairs, movie seats, church pews, bus and train seats, anywhere else you can think of and oh, off of the bottom of my shoes.

    "What should be the penaltie for polluting?"

    The same as not being able to spell penalty.

    In no way do I advocate littering. Not just because of environmental problems it cause but also because it's filthy to the eyes. Anyone that litters should be either heavily fined or sentenced to cleaning litter as a community service for a long period of time.

    Hell, my car looks like a wreck at times due to my unwillingness to litter and my laziness stopping me from finding a trash can.

    Killing them? You out yo mind my friend.

    what do you think is fair for hurting the environment and killing animals unecasarily? what should the punishment be if they went out with guns and killed the whale? its the same result and mindset

    I think an interesting question is who determines what pollution is?
