- The damage caused by toxic effluents in industry is usually very hard to control and reverse. Effects on the biosphere can be devastating.
- People affected include the general public residing in nearby areas and not just those in the immediate vicinity of accidents. Pollution tends to spread rather quickly.
- Pollution caused is continuous in nature and in some cases can render soil and water unusable for decades, if not centuries. It is not too much to say that in some instances, the very basis of human life in such areas is laid to waste.
- The very nature of such activity demands extraordinary care and extraordinary liability when damage is caused by such industries. It goes beyond ordinary remedies and the social responsibility of such industries have to be emphasized.
- The actual cause of accident is a minor issue when compared to the magnitude and scale of environmental pollution caused by such disasters.
