With the Olympics in England coming up in the summer of 2012, preparations have begun. One of these is getting the decorative stadium wrap to encircle the stadium. The people who were contracted to provide this decorative wrap is a company called Dow, which has ties to the environmental disaster in Bhopal, India. There gas killed 25,000 people and left 100,000 with serious health problems. The Olympic Games Committee has put an importance on environments and this choice to contract Dow is very shocking. Should the Olympics have contracted another company? Can you oversee any conflicts in the near future over this decision? Should they also think about rights?
