Italian government adopts draft law to punish environmental crimes

The Italian government on Tuesday adopted a draft bill under which the perpetrators of "environmental catastrophes" would be punishable by up to 10 years in prison. The bill, which must be passed by parliament, "anticipates" a planned European Union directive on environmental crimes and puts Italy in line with "the largest European countries," a government statement said.

Shouldn't the earth be accorded at least the same respect we give to a crime victim?
