Council Lists 1994 'Worst U.S. Corporate Polluters': In the latest of its annual evaluations, the Council on Economic Priorities, a New York-based environmental research group, gives black marks to Union Carbide Corp., Exxon Corp., International Paper Co., Southern Co., Texaco Inc., Westinghouse Electric Co., Westvaco and Maxxam Inc., based on evaluations by an independent panel of judges who reviewed more than 100 U.S. corporations. Corporations including Rockwell International Corp., DuPont Co. and Louisiana Pacific Corp. were deemed to have made environmental progress and were dropped from the 1994 list. Texaco disagreed "strongly" with its inclusion on the list.
