2 1 March, Hechi Qin Bin, deputy secretary, said illegal discharge of cadmium pollution of rivers caused by long suspected object is currently locked. Yesterday, long rivers in Guangxi handling environmental emergencies briefing on the work, Hechi mayor apologized to the public. (February 2, according to “Beijing Times”)
contamination incident 16 days after the contamination was locked objects, and to report thereon to the public apology. This slow response capacity to govern themselves in relation to apologize to the public. Course, in addition, an apology at least two main reasons:
first big events. Environmental destruction, river ecosystem out of balance, excluding the time being, only a few counties adjacent water masses of the people affected by the problem, it is enough to make local government departments and officials, to give a clear statement, to a sincere apology.Second, the government managed
dereliction of duty. Why is there such a serious pollution, illegal sewage Although two criminal enterprise was the culprit, but as the management and supervisors, the relevant government departments of negligence, lack of supervision no doubt to blame. Scale and cadmium from contaminated up to 20 tons of data leakage point of view, corporate pollution of the environment is clearly not one or two days, then this period, the relevant administrative departments of enterprises, in particular, to the environmental protection departments are doing, done? Is this not a dereliction of duty, not an apology?
Hechi mayor apologized, but it is far not enough of an apology, an apology can not be treated as dealing with more issues, methods and public relations crisis. Government and public officials need to apologize, but the public need on the need for further accountability.
this as Hechi Qin Bin, deputy secretary said, the next step Hechi focus, first, investigate, and the second is the regulation, and the third is ecological restoration. In my view, in addition, there Hechi information necessary to further improve transparency of work, to full disclosure of relevant information at any time, accept their supervision and questioned. Why such pollution, corporate responsibility and related regulatory authorities how to divide? How to make a law like the accountability, and who the responsible for this pollution? How to learn by analogy, learn to avoid the recurrence of similar incidents?
good environment and ecology is essential to protect human life and conditions, pollution incidents regardless of size, how many are no doubt mankind is to survive disasters and threats. Unavoidable environmental pollution has step by step so that the world’s ecological deterioration, while some of this is controlled by man-made pollution, it is worse for the environmental degradation. Another gorgeous sorrowful place, but also we need to focus on the management, control, combat and eliminate the office.
