String Bean's Picture
1.String Bean: Enjoy's making money! He doesn't care about people or the environment. If there is a penny to be made, he will do whatever he can to get it. As a result of his greed our world's Tropical Rain Forests are being destroyed. If oil has been discovered, he will drill for it regardless of hazards that he may cause to the environment. Some people say that he uses very cheap materials to build his oil rigs, and pipe lines. As a result, many of the world's oil fields have developed leaks, which pour into the earth's soil and water systems. Greed makes most of his money by finding and selling fossil fuels. He won't spend any money on scientific research
to study what the gases from fossil fuels are doing to our atmosphere. As a result of his behavior many people are concerned about global warming.
