Oil companies covering up the true environmental costs of the tar sands...   what a shocker.   

They should be charged criminally for fudging these reports.
Thankfully we have deferred prosecution agreements now.

So I wonder how long it will be until they morph DPA's into financial instruments that can be traded like production quotas, carbon credits or bearer bonds?  Maybe it could be sold like insurance. 

If corruption is an absolute must and the economy just cannot live without it could we not monetize it in a way that we can at least account for the costs it comes with and tax it like any other vice we've grown comfortable with?
