Fair enough.
How about, some people will develop and apply technology to in an attempt to undo the harm done by others. Then those "others" seize the opportunity provided by the new technology to make more money for their shareholders.

Case in point. In Quebec we produce a lot of pork, like a whole a lot. We all know what comes out of the back end of a pig. Well, the producers were held to a limit as to the amount of pig crap they could spread on the fields. Then someone came up with a technology that would decrease the environmental impact by 50%. The spokesperson for the pig farmers said in a newspaper interview that this was great news because now the pig farmers would be able to double their production.
