ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the current conditions of environmental criminals in the U.S. It mentions that Allan Elias was imprisoned for about seventeen years due to the said crime and for poisoning of only one citizen in Libby, Montana. Meanwhile, W. R. Grace & Co.'s case is far more greater than Elias, where it operated a vermiculite mine in Libby from 1963 to 1990 and killed more than 200 people from lung disease due to asbestos fibers.
