Corporations , Political Socialisation and The Environment


 I feel that the responsibility for keeping the environment clean does not rest with the corporations who pollute it, but with the government who does not stop them.

             If there are no laws and regulations that are enforced by the government for the corporations to follow then they are in no way accountable for their actions. They will in most likely hood simply pollute the environment in order to gain a buck or save a buck.
             A good example of this is when certain corporations turn their filters off at night time in order to save money on energy. If the government does not enforce the laws the corporations will continue doing so and adding pollutants to our environment.
             Changes need to be made in the monitoring of the amount of emissions that certain corporations put out on an ongoing basis. This is needed to track the corporations who are following the laws and the ones who are not. Government needs to establish a system that will enable them to enforce corporations to meet their guidelines. Perhaps a system that deals out a suitable punishment that fits the crime as well as incentives for those who meet and go beyond the system. Possible ideas are tax credits and rebates for companies meeting the targets set by the government.
             Another good idea would be for the government to offer incentives for investors who look at environmentally friendly companies as opposed to looking at those corporations who are not known for being environmentally active. Such incentives could include tax credits on the individual's tax return.
             Corporations need to be held accountable and the government needs to be the one responsible for making them so. Laws, regulations and incentives need to introduced and enforced if we want to leave our children and their children a world in which they can live without fearing the air that they breath and the water that they drink.The political socialisation of the population has become a large concern for society today. With out a change in the political socialisation in a way favourable to the preservation of the world disaster can occur. Political Socialisation is an efficient means in predicting and controlling the political ideals and values of future generations. As people grow more environmentally conscious, socialisation could be a useful tool in ensuring the protection of the environment for future generations. Political socialisation could also predict what will be faced by future generations as a result of the world's destruction of the environment. Whether or not health problems resulting from pollution will affect socialisation or the absence of forests and the natural world will effect socialisation. Although, it is obvious to say that it will but socialisation can explain how it will. If socialisation is not geared towards environmental awareness and conservation then the world can only expect a greater deterioration of its surroundings as well as greater pollution, which will cause more health problems. Socialisation is the most effective way to ensure how future generations will deal with and perceive the world; if that perception is to protect the environment then the possibility that natural resources will be protected is greatly enhanced. The socialisation of those active in the environmental movement or those concerned with conservation as well as those with an environmental consciousness comes from many factors, the condition of their political leaders and state, the presence of an environmental danger or disaster, and the role of education in teaching the youth environmental preservation.
