Dont ever forget BHOPAL

Bhopal disaster

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Bhopal disaster or Bhopal gas tragedy was an industrial disaster that took place at a Union Carbidepesticide plant in the Indian city of Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh. On 3 December 1984, the plant released 42tonnes of toxic methyl isocyanate (MIC) gas, exposing more than 500,000 people to toxic gases. The first official immediate death toll was 2,259. A more generally accepted figure is that 8,000- 10,000 died within 72 hours, and it is estimated that 25,000 have since died from gas-related diseases.[1][2]

The Bhopal disaster is frequently cited as the world's worst industrial disaster.[1][2][3][4][5] The International Medical Commission on Bhopal was established in 1993 to respond to the longterm health effects of the disaster.
