Here are the "Cruel-etin" board posts from the TidoWave website. They paint Tagruato in a bad light, but they sound a little off the deep end themselves...
Noise Pollution Effects Humpbacks
Underwater, sound can carry for many miles. Whales and other ocean creatures depend on sound for communication, warnings of danger, and to orient themselves as they traverse the seas. During Tagruato’s construction of the Chuai drilling station in the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, ubiquitous sound pollution pierced the waters for over a year. Hundreds of humpback whales returning from the tropical climates they had migrated to for the winter were scared and confused by the strange noises. The whales were forced to divert themselves and their calves from established migration routes they had been using for generations. Many starved to death before they could reach the feeding waters.
Tagruato denies any responsibility for attributing to the already dwindling population.
Unique Fauna On The Brink
The Sunda Anemone has called the northeastern Indian Ocean home since long before mankind as we know it came into existence. Their delicate anatomy was meticulously crafted over millions of generations, specifically suited for survival in the unique deep ocean environment in which they prospered. Rare and beautiful, the cnidarians enjoyed a peaceful existence. That is, until Tagruato came to town.
By constructing the Itoku Drilling Station in the Java Trench, Tagruato has pushed the Sunda Anemone to the brink of extinction*! Extinction, people! We’re talking about the eradication of an innocent ocean dweller, and for what? A few more barrels of Earth Blood?! Will you be able to look your child in the eye when they ask you what happened to the Sunda Anemone and explain to them that you needed to power your John Deere?! You shouldn’t even be cutting your lawn! Let the grass grow as long as Mother Earth intended!
We contacted Tagruato spokeswoman Suzume Soga, reasonably demanding a complete deconstruction of the station, as well as bearing financial responsibility for the rehabilitation of the species. Soga responded with, “No comment.” Our associate claims she had a general tone of indifference. Indifference to extinction?! Deplorable. Add this to the growing list of reasons why, in the end, Tagruato will pay for its evil ways.

Tagruato History Fun Fact #42
1961 - 力の手 attempts to buy out a small, family owned and operated mining outfit in Honshu. The head of the outfit staunchly refuses, and soon winds up dead. Foul play was suspected, but never proven. The dead man inexplicably changed his mind about the sale the night before his death, leaving behind instructions to sell the company to 力の手.
Tagruato History Fun Fact #18
1981 - 力の手 is accused of operating a factory in India employing dozens of child laborers - some no older than 10 years old, working 70 hours a week for wages far below legal standards. The factory is quickly shut down, and company officials claim ignorance, blaming ‘outsourced management’. Suspicion was rampant of similar child labor transgressions in other 力の手 facilities around the world. Amid the India debacle, dozens of other plants shut their doors, reopening weeks later with newly hired staffs of legal workers.
To this day, we believe Tagruato does not hesitate to boost their bottom line by employing underage, underpaid workers.

1986 - 力の手 is caught illegally dumping thousands of gallons of industrial waste into the Tokyo Bay - less than a mile away from Kujūkuri Beach, one of Japan’s most popular swimming and surf destinations.
