Corporate profit is becoming a new priority for environmental protection. Science is being charged to satisfy political operatives while instituting profit margin as its measure of success. By doing so what used to be considered sound science by the scientific community now takes on a new meaning. Science, therefore, becomes influenced by motives driven by unscientific standards such as greed, politics, and public perception.
