Under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA), commonly known as Superfund, the very worst environmentally contaminated sites are designated for cleanup by a scoring system called the Hazard Ranking System. If they are bad enough, they get on the National Priorities List – a euphemism if WC has ever heard one – and, eventually, they get “remediated” – another euphemism.
It’s an imperfect system, but CERCLA is a start at getting some of the worst environmental catastrophes attended to.
America needs something similar for ethics and politicians. We need a way to “score” their ethics or lack thereof, so that a plan of remediation to address those ethical lapses can be developed.
