The steady rise of new industry and business on the island of Trinidad has created new jobs and strengthened the nation's economy. However, with the increase of industry there has been a steady increase of pollutants released into the environment. Through my research I discovered what was and was not being done to deal with these pollutants by speaking with company representatives, environmental experts and the people that lived on the island. I observed that only a few companies were being environmentally conscious, while others are waiting on the government to set and enforce standards.
