Corporations make profit off the products they sell to the consumer.The products they sell provide the consumer with a desired form of relief he or she wants.No corportion would sell a product that would harm the consumer ,however some products sold harm the environment and in turn affect the consumer. Therefore it is up to Large corporations to minimize the amount of damage their products inflict on the environment. Corportions could produce products with materials that release less toxins and harmful agents into the environment when disposed of.If the product cannot be created from 100% bio-degradable and non-toxic materials, corporations should find alteranative measures for limiting the damages caused by the harmful byproducts of the products they sell. Example, corporations could develop stations in which consumers could bring in their used up products for safe disposal at little to no cost. Every corporation is created in order to make profit and provide a service or a product to the consumer.Most consumers do not understand the complexity of the products they buy and the possible harm they could cause.Since large corporations created such a product, they alone have the knowledge of how to safely dispose of their product.Therefore corporations should provide information on their products to aid the consumer to understand the possible dangers of the products they purchase and how to dispose of them safely.

I think that it’s more realistic and smarter designing a safer car because you don’t know what or who can distract the passenger it could even be in the car that’s distracting them so if by making it safer inside and out the more likely it’s going to protect the passenger and the occupants inside the vehicle. In conclusion I believe that creating a safer car is more important than reducing driver distraction because it always depends on the drivers attention span, second you will always have distractions on the road, and third of all the safer the car the safer the accident

Therefore another way to avoid disaster in America would be to better inform ourselves and not believe everything presented to us by the mainstream media. Although Kunstler is telling us we depend too much on the media, he does not compare to the amount of dependency we put on oil and its use in individual cars.
